Are you in the mood for planning your wedding theme?
Let's get you started by walking you through the ‘wedding mood board'.
WHAT IS A WEDDING MOOD BOARD?
A wedding mood board is a collection of ideas that you come across deliberately (because you're looking) or accidentally that you feel may be a great fit for your wedding theme. It could be magazine cut outs showing color combinations. It could include venue types, menu options, decorative elements, wedding DIY ideas and more. Anything to do with how your wedding looks and functions will go onto your wedding mood board.
WHY DO YOU NEED A WEDDING MOOD BOARD?
This collection of ideas will be used by you to formulate a wedding design theme that you can work with to make a reality.
You will of course eliminate various elements of your mood board as unsuitable or surplus to requirements and nothing is written in stone, these are just ‘ideas' not exact copies of what you will have. Unless of course you use my FREE wedding mood board design service which will allow you to easily access every element on the board for purchase or hire if desired.
To summarise the wedding mood board (inspiration board) helps you refine your wedding design theme ideas. It can also be used to communicate your ideas to your wedding planner and wedding suppliers – cake designer, room designer and so on.
HOW TO CREATE A WEDDING MOOD BOARD
FREE wedding mood board design service
If you don't fancy accessing our free mood board creation service your first port of call may be Pinterest. Pinterest have wonderful collections of wedding theme ideas as single items and as ready-made mood boards. You can save these digitally to your online device. You can also find great ideas via sites like Polyvore ( I use this site to create my mood boards). Print out any images you feel should be added to your hard copy wedding mood board.
A stiff piece of white card perhaps A3 size or bigger should be large enough for you to collate your ideas.
Group your ideas together on your mood board (whether it be digital or hard copy) as follows:
- Bridal wear – dress and accessory ideas
- Bridal Party outfit ideas
- Venue ideas
- Wedding stationery ideas
- Flowers and other decorative ceremony elements
- Reception decoration ideas
- Personal decorative touches
- Color palette
Pros of a Digital Mood Board
A digital mood board is great as you can easily remove, add and move things around your board. It is not all glued down as it may be with a hard copy mood board. However if you pin or tac your printed out items to the pin board you can do the same with those. What you can't do though is resize the image after they've been printed out. With a digital mood board you can of course email it and post it to social media making it easier to share and communicate your wedding design ideas for feedback and review.
