If you've began the wedding planning process (because let's be real, it's a PROCESS), I'm sure you've heard the phrase "a cohesive look" or "a cohesive aesthetic."

And the real question is: What the heck does that mean?

Well, let's get to the bottom of it!

So, your wedding day is a reflection of your unique love story, right? Every couple's story has special meaning, a one-of-a-kind feeling and it's own backstory -- and what better way to showcase that than through a cohesive (there it is again!) and captivating wedding decor aesthetic? The idea is, whether it's the grandest of details or the tiniest accents, you create a harmonious ambiance to elevate your special day to new heights of beauty and create a feeling of grandeur. And who doesn't want that for the most special (and probably expensive!) day of their lives? You want it to be magical in it's own way; you want to feel it ALL! Good news -- we've got you covered!

Here are some tips to help you create a wedding decor aesthetic that will leave your guests in awe.

  1. Define Your Vision: Start by envisioning the overall atmosphere you want to create. Are you dreaming of a rustic and whimsical affair, or a glamorous and modern extravaganza? Maybe you want a more casual vibe, but still want it to be chic with a touch of bohoemian decor. Establishing a clear vision will serve as your guiding light throughout the planning process and ensure that all the elements work together throughout the event -- from ceremony to the last dance.
  2. Pick a Color Palette: Colors set the tone and mood for your wedding, so choose a color palette that resonates with your vision. Consider shades that complement each other and reflect your personal style. Whether you opt for bold and vibrant hues, soft and romantic pastels, or the perfect shade of earth tone neutrals, a well-curated color palette will tie everything together.
  3. Consistency is Key: When it comes to a cohesive decor aesthetic, consistency is where it's at. Ensure that your chosen theme, colors, fonts, and style are carried throughout every aspect of your wedding, from invitations to table settings to floral arrangements to signage. Consistency will create a seamless flow and make your wedding feel like a well-curated masterpiece.
  4. Attention to Detail: Small details can make a big impact on your decor aesthetic. Think about incorporating subtle touches that reflect your theme, such as customized signage, unique place cards, or themed table numbers. These thoughtful details will add an extra layer of charm and personality to your wedding. And good news for you -- this is our specialty!
  5. Integrate Your Venue: Work with the existing features and architecture of your venue to enhance your decor aesthetic. Whether it's a picturesque garden, an elegant ballroom, or my favorite -- the beach! -- find ways to integrate your theme into the space. Drapery, lighting and strategically placed props can elevate the venue so it becomes an extension of your chosen aesthetic. (Another small pro tip -- Take pictures and videos of your venue! You'll thank me later.)
  6. Experiment with Textures: Textures add depth and visual interest to your decor. Mix and match different textures like lace, satin, wood, acrylic, or metallic elements to create a dynamic and visually appealing setting. By incorporating various textures, you'll add a tactile experience for your guests, making your decor all the more memorable.
  7. Seek Professional Help: Don't hesitate to enlist the help of wedding decor professionals who can bring your vision to life. Wedding planners and designers have the expertise and creativity to execute your ideas flawlessly. You don't have to do this alone! They can assist in sourcing the right decor elements, provide invaluable guidance, and ensure that your aesthetic is cohesive and breathtaking.

    Creating a cohesive wedding decor aesthetic is an exciting and creative endeavor that allows you to showcase your unique style through colors, lighting, signage and textures. By defining your vision, curating a harmonious color palette, paying attention to details, and seeking the help of wedding professionals, you'll be well on your way to creating an atmosphere that's both cohesive and unforgettable.

    So, get ready to let your creativity shine and watch as your wedding decor becomes a reflection of your love, joy, and beautiful journey together.

    Happy planning!
