As weddings are back in full force again, it has been so rewarding to see all of the wedding designs and decor that I have been working on for the past year truly come to life. For couples who have trusted me with their wedding day vision – from wedding invitations to table numbers – I am so grateful.
Today on the WPFM blog, I wanted to talk about creating a cohesive look on your wedding day. Despite what Pinterest might have you believe, it’s harder to mix and match different styles and wedding decor pieces and have it still look cohesive than you might think. With that said, I love when all of your wedding decor doesn’t feel cookie cutter so the effort it takes to make it look cohesive is so worth it. Your wedding should truly be a reflection of you.
When you work with one designer (or in my case, calligrapher), it ensures that the design, calligraphy and fonts used are consistent from your invitations to your day-of signage. You won’t have the same effect when you buy your wedding invitations from Minted, your wedding signage from a calligrapher, and your wedding programs from etsy. Instead, I want to encourage you to choose one person whose work you love and commit to them. If at all possible, start with the wedding invitations. For the below wedding, you can see the monogram was used on the invitations but also the seating chart on the wedding day.
Although in the past people have been able to book their wedding calligrapher 6 months before their wedding, that’s no longer the case. Personally, I only have a couple spots left in 2021 (in November and December) and am already booking well into 2022. It’s 2021 and we are officially in a wedding boom. Honestly, I don’t see it slowing down anytime soon. I can already picture couples getting engaged in 2022 keeping me busy for 2023! It’s going to be here before any of us know it.
Although I firmly believe in working with one service provider from start to finish, there are ways to save on your overall wedding budget so that not everything needs to be made custom. I talk more about where to save and where to splurge here, if you are interested but in the meantime, did you know I offer rentals for all of my custom wedding signage couples? This means you can achieve a completely cohesive (and custom) look for a fraction of the price of having everything custom.
Not everything needs to stand out to make your wedding decor cohesive. Whether your wedding palette is bright & bold or subtle with neutrals, chose a few elements that flow together. When you hire a calligrapher, you can rest assured that all of the hand written touches will be the same.
If you are looking for a New Jersey wedding calligrapher, to work with you from start to finish (from wedding invitations to table numbers), I would love to chat more. I have a few wedding dates left for November & December 2021, and am booking fast for 2022.
