I wrote this as a guest post for The Knotty Bride that posted earlier this week, but I wanted to make sure to post it on {Thursday Tips} because it’s pretty much EVERYTHING that I’m always talking about! :)

I’m all about wedding styles, mostly because as a planner for an event design company, it helps me to know what types of things a bride is going to like. However, I’ve found that when I ask brides what their wedding’s style is, they really don’t know. “Classic” and “elegant” is what I hear a lot of. And it’s what I see a lot of too. Knowing your wedding style will help you make decisions about countless other things for your wedding- from your wedding dress down to the flowers for your centerpieces!

So how do you figure out what your wedding style is?

All of the answers are in how you live your life. Do you wear heels everywhere you go and have friends asking you to go shopping with them all the time? Maybe your style is chic, defined as style and elegance.

Or maybe you and your fiance are the type of people who love being outside. You’re always biking, hiking, going the beach, playing sports, etc etc. You met a mutual friend’s barbeque or your first date was going surfing. It’s probably a no brainer to have an intimate backyard wedding, surrounded by your family and closest friends.

Are you a business woman? Stylish, modern, elegant, and poised are words that your friends would use to describe you. Your fiance is a go-getter and you met at Happy Hour at one of the most chic bars in the city. A clean, modern style is going to be perfect for you.

And of course we can’t forget the stylish, eclectic brides. Fun, spontaneous, and always looking ways to put a twist on things, you want a wedding that your guests most likely have never been to before. You and/or your fiance are most likely have some sort of artistic career, and you both have a flair for design. Oh, and no matter what he says, your fiance probably wants to have a say in how things are going to look for your wedding. And you’ll probably DIY some pretty awesome stuff.

Of course there are a TON more styles for weddings. (I used the most popular styles from the {ELD} Style Dictionary for these, but of course there’s still the always popular garden wedding, and the occasional rustic celebration, among many more.) The best way to discover your wedding style is to look at everything about you and your fiance. From what you wear, to your jobs, to what you do for fun. You want your wedding to be a reflection of BOTH of YOU, not your venue, not your parents, and not what you *think* a wedding is *supposed* to be like.  So before you make any solid decisions, figure out your wedding style!
