What Your Wedding Décor Can Say about You

Are you a classic bride, longing for the white wedding that every little girl dreams of, or are you a modern bride, hoping to shun the traditions of the past? Whichever category you fall into, and it's probably somewhere between those two extremes, the wedding décor you choose will be a reflection of you and your tastes.

Your wedding décor will help set the tone for the overall feeling of your wedding. Select one particular item as your favorite to use as a jumping off point for the rest of your décor. For example, the use of your combined initials will look beautiful on the cake, napkins, programs, and even projected onto the dance floor. A traditional bride would use the old-fashioned, scrolling fonts; whereas, a modern bride would prefer block print. Either can be beautiful and is sure to impress your guests.

Considering hiring an artist or graphic designer to create a personalized emblem for your wedding décor, incorporating your names, initials, or the wedding date. As a cheaper alternative, search your computer for a common clipart item that can be repeated throughout your wedding décor. This way, whether you hire a professional printer or decide to print the paper items yourself, the clipart will be easily available across several computer programs.

Repeating one item in many different ways will show off the hours of preparation and planning you put into your wedding décor. Choose something personalized and unique to you to keep your wedding décor from feeling too cookie-cutter and passé. If possible, design it yourself. Even if you decide on something common, such as hearts, use it in a fun new way to express your individuality.

Wedding décor can say a lot about a person, but if you don't put enough thought into it, all it will say is that you do not care about how your wedding looks. Don't be a victim of lifeless wedding décor.
