Are you in the midst of planning your big day? This is a time in your life that you might have been thinking about or dreaming upon for years, potentially even decades. That comes with a build up to where you ultimately want everything to be picture perfect and we mean that literally. You want the aesthetic of your wedding to be absolutely flawless, dazzle your guests and lead to some awesome photos or videos that you can treasure forever. So, how do you do this?
Well, there are a few key details that you must consider if you want your wedding to look truly beautiful. Let’s explore some of the best and brightest options here.
Hire The Right Photographer
Ultimately, it may not be completely about how it looks on the day. Remember, the day will only live on in your memories. But your wedding can be captured for eternity in photos and videos. As such, you need to make sure that you hire the right photographer. They are going to have a lot of input into whether your wedding has the dream aesthetic you had always hoped for.
Make sure that you do look at the portfolio of a photographer that you are considering. This will provide you with a solid chance at knowing exactly what each photographer might be able to deliver for your wedding.
You should also be aware that there are various different forms of photography to choose from. So, you need to find the one that’s the right fit. Do you want posing photos? This is where everyone is brought together under a beautiful backdrop to smile for the camera. It looks fake but it provides a chance to make sure that everything is perfected down to the last detail.
A more popular option these days is to capture moments in time. With this option, there’s no posing necessary and instead, a photographer will wander around almost like a guest, capturing moments that you might have missed. This could be a table of your friends laughing together or a particularly heartfelt reaction to one of the toasts.
One of the best ways to make sure that your wedding looks fantastic is to match all the different colours and contrast them the right way. So, an example of this would be the flowers that you choose for decorations. The shades present here could match the shade of the bridesmaid dresses. These, in turn, could snap with the colour of the ties and the cumber buns of the groomsmen. It’s a great way to ensure that photos with these key members look absolutely fabulous.
Of course, the flowers and the table settings are going to have a big impact on the overall aesthetic of your wedding. These are features where a lot of attention is drawn to, so you want to get these perfect.
You should make sure that you are looking at a variety of different areas of your wedding and seeing if you can fit the colours together. Do this and we think you’ll be delighted with the overall effect.
Choosing Your Season
Don’t forget that the season will also have an impact on the aesthetic of your wedding. This is particularly true if you are planning a ceremony outdoors but it’s always going to be a factor, no matter when you are planning to hold the wedding.
So, for instance, a wedding held in summer is not going to look the same as one held in fall or winter. Even the dress designs are different depending on the time of year. Furthermore, while you can’t guarantee snow what you can guarantee is that the shades of nature will be different. In winter, there are pale, pastel colours whereas through summer you have lush green grass and hopefully bright blue skies. Do consider this when you’re thinking about how you want your wedding to look.
Makeup also changes based on the season for your wedding. A wedding held at Thanksgiving using AVON products is not going to look the same as one held in July. You need to match your makeup style and final look to the season beautifully and there are plenty of guides online that can help you do this you also need to think about the type of makeup style that you want for your wedding. You can make it seem like your not wearing any at all, or you can decide to go bold and aim to seem like a model.
It’s entirely your choice but does consider hiring a makeup artist rather than completing your own. Unless you are incredibly skilled, a makeup artist will always be able to deliver a better final result that you will absolutely love.
Don’t Forget The Dress
Finally, don’t forget about choosing the right dress. This is always going to impact the aesthetic of your wedding. Should you go traditional, contemporary or bold and completely unique? It’s your choice and you don’t even have to settle on a cream or white dress. You can select whatever shade or colour you want for your big day. You can match with the bridesmaids or clash and contrast beautifully. When you choose the dress, be sure to look at a few different styles and colours before you finally pick the one perfect for you.
Make sure it matches your accessories as well. If you can, you need to buy or even rent high-quality jewellery for your wedding day. The right, high-quality jewellery will glisten under the right lighting and in pictures. It will make you look like a princess or even a queen to your guests and years later in the photos.
We hope you love these ideas and consider implementing them to ensure that your wedding has the perfect aesthetic to be remembered for decades. Remember, when setting up your wedding the devil is in the details. It’s all about getting the little choices right before considering the overall image for your big day.
