One of the first things to check off your wedding checklist is putting together an inspiration board. This is going to be your tool through out the wedding planning process to bring in all the details you are planning and ensure they all work fluidly.
The last thing you want is to have a garden style bouquet with a modern centerpiece for your reception flowers. If you are working with wedding planners they will be able to assist not only with bringing in inspiration but also putting it all together for a visual overview.
So, now that you know WHY you should make an inspiration board let’s get started in figuring out HOW to make a wedding inspiration board.
Let’s Get Started:
- First let’s start off with collecting your inspiration. You are going to want to know what Style Wedding you are going for. Are you a modern chic bride, or a romantic elegant bride. There is a range in style and while some styles can cross over, I would suggest first finding out what Style Bride You Are!

- Let’s talk color- In putting together an inspiration board you will want to start with your color choices. I would recommend a family of options. Two colors are just not enough, you will learn this and you get more in depth in the planning process regarding invitations and smaller details. So come up with your main color, an accent color and then of course a neutral that will carry it all together. For help with color palettes we LOVE to use Pantone Colors as they are the most versatile in the wedding industry. Ask your planner for a swatch of Pantone colors to really get a feel for all your colors together.
- Pictures- What is an inspiration board without photos? You will want to create a folder on your computer that will house all your photos. I recommend using sub-folders to give each category a seperate folder. So you might have a Wedding folder and then subfolders of Cakes, Hair, Dress, Venue, Flowers etc. While I know that your probably have a Pintrest I would recommend also having your top choices on your computer, some time too much inspiration gets confusing and you can easily get frustrated
