What Styles Inspire You?

In case you missed it, The Knot declared March 1st National Wedding Planning Day! If you weren’t able to watch their live broadcasts we have a recap of what you missed!




Before you begin planning your wedding, you first must answer this question…..

“What wedding style do I want to have?”

Answering this question first will help you with the many decisions that will follow!


There are 7 style categories that almost all wedding will fall into.

  1. Bohemian (Boho)
  2. Classic
  3. Romantic
  4. Modern
  5. Glamorous
  6. Rustic
  7. Whimsical

When choosing your style, don’t feel like you can only be 1 style. Choose a main style and then incorporate elements that you love from the other styles!
