THE DECORATION

Without a doubt, a Christmas decoration will give the magic touch to the wedding.

A big Christmas tree in some corner of the reception hall, will be a must.

Use elements like moss, candles and garlands of lights. And a color palette that includes shades of marsala and green, will create an unforgettable atmosphere for you and your guests.

THE MENU

When choosing the menu, you can ask your caterer to add a typical Christmas dish. And for the snack during the open bar, what better choice than cups of hot chocolate with churros?

Your bouquet may have velvet ribbons that can go in combination with the colored shoes of the same fabric.

The Fine Art style is classic and traditional, where nature and organic elements predominate. It is an elegant, ethereal and romantic style.

The Fine Art weddings are simple and sophisticated. Decoration focuses on pastel colors and organic elements such as foliage, plants, stone or clay vessels, silk or linen fabrics, wood and marble.

The importance of a mood board to design your wedding

When you start planning your wedding, one of the first things you have to do with your wedding planner is to define the style, the theme and colors of your big day. There is a tool that can help you with this task: a mood board.

WHAT IS A MOOD BOARD AND WHAT IS IT USED FOR?

A mood board is a type of collage inspiration that help to define and design a wedding.

In this board we can collect all that elements that inspire us: colors, materials, texture, ideas, sketchs, etc. All these elements will help us to create a color palette on which you will design the wedding (from the stationery to the bridal shoes). A mood board will help us to filter the ideas and to define a style and a theme.

HOW TO COLLECT THESE ELEMENTS?

There are two ways to do it: a physical support, with a notebook or a foam board, or in a digital form creating a storage folder, or using one of the most famous tools like Pinterest.

Here you can find some ideas.

After a first meeting with the couple where they communicate their ideas and tastes, I personally create a Pinterest secret board, in which only we have access, and where we will add all things that we like and inspire us.

A mood board will help us to choose the theme, the flowers, the accessories, the stationery, etc. so everything is harmonious and follow a common thread.

It’s very important that you always keep your mood board in mind when you will coordinate with each vendor, so they also know your tastes, theme and colors and they can use that so everything follow the same line.

This tool is useful not only to organize your wedding, but also for any other event or to decorate your house.  So, do you want to create your own inspiration mood board?
