Interview with Erika with a K Designs
What is your style?
Classic? Glamorous? Bohemian? Minimalist?
What are the general colors you want, try to be open-minded and use the color palette as a guideline
Instead of “gray and white” for example, think of a “neutrals” color palette consisting of ivory, beige, and colors with gray undertones, like charcoal, olive green, and khaki – use the more generalized wording for google searches
Depending on what the budget will allow, you can cover your essentials and then add extras to enhance your décor style.
What beauty is built within your venue? You picked it because you loved the way it looked, so believe it or not that is also a décor decision to CHECKED off the list! Take into account 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
If your venue is outdoors, such as a beach, lakefront, or anywhere with a view, you may not need much decor to begin with. In fact, going overboard with decor could detract from your venue’s scenery
Get ahold of as many pictures a possible from previous wedding at your chosen venue to inspire you!
Wedding décor checklist
Ceremony, Reception, Table Decor and Centerpieces, Reception Seating, Backdrops, Lighting
Start with essentials (these are your choices) such as when/where people sit for your ceremony and reception…what does that look like!
Some décor essentials: ceremony aisle markers, the altar backdrop, reception centerpieces, table numbers, and table linens (if you want them). While none of these items are must-haves in terms of functionality, they play a big role in transforming the look and feel of your wedding space, especially centerpieces
Secondary essentials: place cards (maybe upgraded if they are an essential), menu, extra lights, a love quote published somewhere
Then sprinkle in the extras only if the budget allows (Molly with give more examples)
