Designing Your Wedding: Location

As the final entry in this serial overview of ways to begin to design your wedding, consider this approach:


As the song goes, “I do love to be beside the sea side…” If you do, too, you could have all the design inspiration you need right in front of you. Deciding on an evocative location first can complete half your design work for you. Use your location’s inherent color scheme to choose similar or complimentary colors for your wedding. Choose one element from your locale to become a recurring motif on all of your stationery or favors. Did you find an amazing hacienda, or botanical garden, or Rococo ballroom? Congratulations! You’ve found a theme, as well! Even using location in the larger sense – such as the city where you’ve chosen to be married, or from which you both hail – can dictate floral, food, and style choices.

Pro Tip: Since choosing a location can lead you to other design choices, and using any of the other approaches can lead you to finding the perfect location, it really is a chicken-or-the-egg scenario. This is the best approach when you really feel a connection to a place.

That’s it for this overview of way to begin designing your wedding! Check back soon for a more in-depth look at each of these options individually.
