The beginning planning stages of any wedding (or party) can be incredibly overwhelming. I find that it can be helpful to begin by creating a mood board. Different from a style board (we’ll be discussing this later) a mood board simply consists of images that catch your attention, details that you want to include, and ideas you want to look more into. I started by creating a board on Pinterest and searching for ‘colorful wedding’ and ‘unique wedding.’ I spent a few days pinning anything and everything that caught my attention. I quickly started to notice a theme, which helped to brand the wedding later on. Below is the final mood board that we used to get an initial idea of where we were headed.
