Whether you’re newly engaged (congrats!) or are in the final throes of planning your wedding, it’s easy to be sucked down the Pinterest rabbit hole and end up totally confused. There’s so many one-off decisions to be made, you can end up questioning whether you’re boho-luxe, shabby-glam, classic-with-a-touch-of-art-deco… wait, what’s my style again?
According to Erin, there’s a couple of questions that are pretty telling when it comes to wedding style:
1. What do you do on the weekend?
By understanding what sort of cafés you frequent, the stores you like to shop at, the types of magazines you read, you can get a pretty clear idea of the types of colours, textures and symbols you’re drawn to. You want your wedding to feel like a reflection of you as a couple, so getting a glimpse into the places that you love to hang out gives a great insight into what’s going to make you feel comfortable on your wedding day.
2. What’s your bed linen like?
Understanding how you’ve chosen to decorate your house tells a wedding stylist a lot! You spend a helluva lot of time at home, so what you choose to be surrounded by, day in and day out, gives a pretty clear indication of your style.
(Ed’s note: If Erin’s coming over to your place, make sure you’ve made the bed!)
3. What are your hobbies?
Once you’ve started sharing a little more about your life, stylists like Erin see where you feel most comfortable, and start to identify recurring patterns. That’s when they pounce, to help you put a name and visuals to your personal style, that you might not even see!
