8 Wedding Styling Tips
Deciding on a style for your wedding day is a key place to start when planning a wedding. A clear vision of how your wedding day will look is very important for creating a cohesive wedding theme. The ability to communicate that vision to suppliers is critical, in order to bring it all together on the day. Therefore, prepare in advance and leave nothing to chance for the best solution.
- Start a moodboard for your wedding, we suggest using Pinterest. Begin by creating one board and dividing it into sections, this way you keep your thoughts and ideas organised.
- Have fun to start with playing around with different looks and ideas.
- Formulate one moodboard with all your final decisions. It is really important when discussing your vision with suppliers that you narrow your focus. Showing suppliers a Pinterest board full of random ideas, will leave a lot of room for interpretation which may mean you end up with something unexpected.
- For those on a budget, set a budget and stick to it. Decide on what elements are the most important and prioritise those first.
- Once you have your vision, make a list of all the elements you want to create. Stick to your plan and resist the temptation to keep adding. Remember, not to overdo the theme.
The Venue Style
6. The venue plays an important role in your styling, work with the venue rather than against it.
7. Be mindful that a blank canvas venue may need more decor expenses, so factor this in to your budget. Consider the venue decor when choosing your colour scheme. Many grand buildings are decorated with strong colours and therefore soft natural colours may get lost.
8. Choose suppliers wisely, as this is where your theme can unravel before your eyes. In one example I saw the couple employ the chair cover company to provide the linens and table centres. The in-house florist was part of the hotel package and provided one top table centre piece. The florist provided bouquets and one ceremony arrangement. The three elements were not working together. My advice is less is more, so keep suppliers to a brief and assume nothing.

DIY wedding tips
Decide whether you will buy or DIY some or all of your decor and details. Often DIY is not a cheaper option, so if it is cost that is driving your decision, cost it out first. DIY will almost certainly take up a lot of your time, probably more than you anticipate. If you don’t have the time, find friends that can help or just don’t take on the hassle.
For the novice DIY enthusiasts, be realistic and allow plenty of practice and time to get prepared. If you are providing some DIY elements make sure you organise someone to set these up on the day. Don’t assume the venue will do this, ask and confirm.
Creating table centrepieces from jam jars, bottles and votive glasses is very popular. Think about varying heights to draw attention. Low level items risk being swamped by the general table paraphernalia such as bottles and glassware.

Gold Wedding Details
Luxe wedding events are packed with details, linens, tableware and china will be used to tie in the overall style. If your budget does not stretch to this, think DIY napkin rings and napkins for additional touches.
Consider incorporating areas of interest at your event, think of this like creating a stage to display. The cake would make a focal point for a stage. The card box is also a prime opportunity, guests need to know where presents and cards can be left. Some couples also create displays and memory boards for lost loved ones, this is another idea for styling. What about making a feature space for guests to be able to sign the guest book. Creating places of interest is also a great way of communicating where everything is to your guests.
Wedding Preparation Tips
- If you have been gathering items to incorporate in your displays, have a dry run well before the day.
- Take a picture of what you have styled so that whoever is setting up for you has a reference point.
- Don’t try to do everything yourself, leave time to enjoy the process of getting ready. It might be advisable to rope in help to set things up on the day.
- Prepare a box of handy items, scissors, tape, string etc. have to hand for your set up squad.
