Take Advantage of your surroundings
When it comes to deciding wedding decor think about your surroundings and what you can use or highlight with decor. It might already have a lot of existing charm or decorative features, such as built-in accent walls, landscaped gardens, fountains, stained glass windows, lighting fixtures, or ceiling beams. Consider how you can design your wedding decor to highlight those details, and how you can benefit from using them. What do the surroundings say or offer that you haven’t noticed before? Chat to the venue to see examples of how the room has been styled before and more importantly chat to your venue stylist for advice on how to get the most out of your venue.
Stay on top of your emails
This probably seems like a no brainer but you can end up with so many different emails from venues to makeup artists to dress boutiques it can get overwhelming. We always suggest creating a new email address strictly for wedding emails only and then from there creating folders for each vendor so that you can easily access emails and your inbox doesn’t get too crowded!
