Hello my lovelies, I am back after a long summer of being super busy.
In May I launched a Wedding Membership Club as I coach and mentor wedding business owners which has been brilliant fun, I cannot believe it has been running for 6 months! Super gobsmacked the time has gone so quickly. I have helped on many styled shoots and getting other businesses visible which I love.
Now we have reached October, I have had most of my weddings move, obviously, sadly a few cancel and of course new bookings for 2022 which is exciting.
As we embrace a new season, I wanted to help you with a few tips if you have moved your wedding date and maybe now hosting your wedding at a different time of year than you were previously. As everyone knows I am the queen of Decor and styling so here are a few tips.
You may have planned hosting an early spring or autumn wedding but are now rescheduled for the summer or moved to the winter. Here in Spain we don’t get many winter bookings which is such a shame as the weather is much kinder and I adore winter decor, a fab excuse to really knock out the sparkle, candles and fairy lights, but I diverse!
Firstly you would have had to have your stationery reprinted and some colours you have already committed to like bridesmaids dresses, shoes but you can take a look at your colour palette to see if will still suit your new date or you can rework it slightly.
If you love your colour palette then just a few tweaks is all that is required. Maybe you were a spring bride with pastel colours then consider adding in a deeper colour to your flowers for an autumn wedding or just pops of a brighter colour for a summer wedding. If you have moved from a summer wedding to a winter wedding consider the textures and add a darker colour and some sparkle, of course!
As an example you may add velvet wraps for the bridesmaid, choose a darker tone to mix with the blush light summer colours such as navy and add some gold sparkle. Gift the groomsmen some gorgeous navy velvet bowties, so it all ties in. You don’t have to think about massive changes but you can quickly get creative and update your wedding colours.
Classics such as whites and greens always work well but I do love a pop of colour, it just brings everything to life, this colour pop can easily be changed according to the season you are getting married in.
I recently saw a table setting, it was a long table, still hugely fashionable, with a coral and green theme, it was really well done with just the glassware and napkins, hardly any flowers and looked amazing.
So you could also think about the colour of your tableware and maybe update this to tone in.
In the world of weddings fashions change so quickly. If you are a 2022 bride, don’t work too hard yet on your style unless you have been dreaming of one style all your life. Leave this until next year, see what is beginning to trend by watching fashions, interiors, etc and then decide what your wedding style is going to be.
Listen to your wedding planner and or stylist, they will guide you with making decisions if you feel you need or wish to change a few details.
I know this has been a really tough time for everyone, both couples and suppliers. But soon we will be celebrating again and certainly not be taking it for granted. I can’t wait to actually host an amazing party again!
