Wedding mood board hacks

Vision boards are a great way to bring all your inspiration and ideas together to make wedding planning a breeze. If you’re struggling to keep track of your ever-growing Pinterest board, we’ve put together some handy wedding mood board hacks.

Wedding Mood Board Hacks

A mood board is a crucial part of your wedding planning journey and will come in super handy during appointments with your suppliers. Not only is it an incredibly useful planning tool, but it will also get your creative juices flowing as you draw all your ideas together.

“It’s important for couples to have a set theme, colour, and style for their big day,” says Easy Weddings planning specialist Abbey Sands. “Think of your wedding colour scheme and mood board like an outfit. You wouldn’t wear a green skirt with red shoes, so your bouquets and styling should match and complement each other too!”

Creating Your Mood Board

If you’re like me and have been adding to your Pinterest wedding board for years, creating an official mood board will help you narrow down the most important details and set a clear vision for bringing your dream wedding to life.

Before you can make a start on your wedding vision board, we recommend going through the following steps:

  1. Decide on your theme for your wedding and ensure it matches the style of your venue. This might be rustic, boho, modern, luxurious, beach, romantic, garden or vintage.
  2. Set a colour palette for your wedding, including one base colour and two or three complementary accent colours.
  3. Pull all your inspiration from Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook, and your camera roll and decide which ideas are your favourite.

Your mood board should include a photo of your venue, floral inspiration, textures such as silk or tulle, visual elements of your venue like wooden beams or fairy lights, and the colours of your bridesmaid’s outfits.

Expert tip: “The venue is a good place to start when thinking about your mood board,” says Abbey. “What colour are the walls, is there greenery, rustic hardwood floors or polished marble? It’s all about creating a mood board that reflects the venue and doesn’t clash.”

Once you’ve finalised your wedding theme and collated all of your inspo, there are a number of handy tools you can use to create a beautiful wedding vision board.
