Wedding planning can often feel overwhelming, given the seemingly limitless amount of wedding favors, flowers and color schemes from which to choose. However, preparing for the big day doesn't have to be stressful. Instead, create an inspiration album to help you hone in on what you and your partner like and dislike.
Many people collect images, clippings and objects they adore for inspiration during the wedding planning process, and cataloging them in a book is simple and can make the planning process a whole lot easier.
Begin by compiling pieces that appeal to you – flip through magazines and photo albums, surf the web and walk outside and snap pictures. Update the album as you collect items, filling pages with colors, shapes and fonts that you love.
Once the book is complete, look through it to see if you can spot any themes. If you find that the album is filled with reds and yellows or tropical beaches, incorporate those ideas into your motif.
Inspiration albums are especially helpful if you are using a wedding planner. It can be hard to verbalize color schemes and themes, but this book will allow you to show a professional exactly what appeals to you, who you are and what you like.
