How to Coordinate Your Wedding Dress and Decor the RIGHT WAY

You maybe exited about getting married and it is now sinking in that you will be a "Mrs" in a short amount of time. Some of the first things you might do is make a "mood board" or a "wish list" or just good 'ol imagination -this was all we had before we had the luxury of Pinterest. You might have an idea of what you want or even a possible theme you've cataloged in your mind for when "Mr. Right" comes and says what I call the fantastic four words almost every woman wants to hear at one point in her life, "will you marry me." 

However, you might realize that what you want might not look aesthetically pleasing to your eye once you place these elements all together. You might see a disconnect, or it might look tacky, or it just doesn't looks good as what  you mentally pictured in your mind. This sounds like the classic case of NOT coordinating your dress with your decor. It's one thing if you like eclectic elements, and by all means, if that's your preference, go for it. But it's another if you have circus theme decor with an elaborate gown with beautiful floral beaded detailing and scratching your head while saying to yourself "this looks awful." 

To avoid something like this I would suggest picturing your dream dress and THEN everything around you. And yes! IN. THAT. ORDER. For one woman, it's all about the decor. For another, it's all about the way they look. But for women that love fashion and beautiful events, both have to be synchronized.

So why do I say picture yourself first? Because ultimately it's about you and your husband-to-be. In that magical moment of saying your vows and "I dos", everything should disappear around you and that is what matters most. The way you feel, the way you look, and the love that is being shared between you and the man you love and adore is what's most important. You'd be surprised at what you'll find out about your personal taste instead of accidentally following a wedding trend you've seen all season long. 

 It might be hard at first to do this, but just give it a try.
