So you have your venue….and you realize not all items you pinned or pined for are appropriate in the venue . You have started your first edit taking away things not right for your venue, but there are still so many things you do love and still too many to make sense in one space. You want to make the night your own, put your stamp on the evening as a couple. So sit back close you eyes and picture your self in your wedding gown/tuxedo, walk into the room and what do you see. Now go back to your boards, your ideas and take those things that don’t fit into your mind’s eye out. Take what is left to your florist/event designer/ planner. Now see how they want to edit, how they will make that evening come alive. Share something about yourself with them so they can be inspired by you. Many realities will naturally help be edit like the season, budget, availability of goods, etc . Than take a piece of you and make it original .
The next few posts will show clients who added parts of their lives to really make it their own. Nancy and Libby, while American spent many years in Shanghai and Hong Kong . They married in the US , picked a great venue for a summer wedding on the water at The Lighthouse. They used bright orchids that reflected the season and brought in an Asian influence, Chinese symbol for double happiness on menu cards and napkins made by a fav seamstress in Shanghai ( maybe it was Hong Kong not positive) . So this wedding really reflected who Nancy and Libby are as a couple and the life they live together.
