The First Steps To Choose Your Wedding Style

Right after getting engaged, every bride-to-be starts browsing on websites and social media to find wedding gowns, wedding cakes, bouquets, hairstyles and wedding colors' latest trends.

This is important to start envisioning your Wedding Day, but, unless you already have your Wedding Style in mind, it usually causes more confusion. Indeed, a bride-to-be often doesn’t know what to choose among several styles of bouquets, gowns, hairstyles and wedding details, since she loves all of them.

The first important thing to consider is:

1-which kind of person you are

Every choice needs to reflect your personality and your own style, since you don’t want to have the feeling of living someone else’s Big Day.

This is the reason why trends are not so important for your Wedding.

It is like the difference between fashion and style.

As Coco Chanel said “Fashion fades, only style remains the same”. Style is something personal and what distinguishes you from other people.

If you want your wedding to remain in everyone’s mind as the day YOU have always been dreaming of, it needs to reflect the person you are.

For this reason, it doesn’t matter if this year Wedding Dress trend is “off shoulder gown”, if it is a model that doesn’t matches with your personality or that makes you look shorter and not feeling comfortable.

The second thing to consider is:

2-how you want your Wedding Day to look like.

Do you want your Wedding to be more country-casual or more elegant-chic?

Imagine to get married in an ancient elegant villa, surrounded by crystal candle holders and paintings. In this venue, some details, such as country lanterns or cocktail jars, can be inappropriate. They will certainly not match with the style you selected for your Wedding. You may like them, but you need to make a style choice to make your Wedding Day look perfect. In this case, it would be better to replace the country lanterns with some ancient ones or with simple candles and flowers.

The style choice you make needs to meet your personality as well.

Nevertheless, please remember to think about your future husband and his personal style too.

After choosing your Wedding Style, never forget to share this information with your guests. This will help them choose the perfect dress for your Wedding.

The secret is to Be Yourself.

Of course, a Wedding Planner can help you highlight and refine your personal style giving you many advice, but the most important thing is to be yourself.

If you feel comfortable with the choice you made, and you feel your Wedding as yours, your guests will notice that. This is what will make your Wedding Day different from the others.
