By now your colour palette and mood board should be giving you a clear indication of the direction your larger decisions should be. Some large decisions include flowers, venue, lighting and your photographer. A big event can’t be formed around small ideas, this is why step 1 and 2 are so important. A larger concept can be adapted to smaller concepts more easily than the other way round. Smaller ideas like your lipstick colour, cake flavour and pocket square fabric will begin to form faster now that your big concept is so well developed. If your larger decisions for the day can’t be made with ease at this stage, head back to step 2 and 3. Can you describe what you want your day to embody in three words? Is your colour pallet something you’re totally happy with?
Your wedding day is one cohesive story. Being purposeful and selective in the beginning makes the middle and end part easier. Tearing yourself away from the clutter and noise of smaller decisions can be tough at the beginning but it’s worthwhile, as these smaller decisions often trip brides up.
Whenever you think of a smaller detail, write it down and store it away to be tackled at a later stage. Talk these smaller details over with your suppliers and gather their advice. Big decisions can be straight forward once you’ve tackled them, but small details are on going so don’t panic if they aren’t crossed off the list until the last days of your planning.
