Follow the Venuescaper‘s Guide for an easy execution of your dream wedding.
Step 1 – Have an inspiration board
The earlier you think and dream about your ideal wedding, the easier it gets. As you pin more ideas down onto your board, you’d soon realize a recurring style that you’re leaning towards. Edit your board as you go along and narrow it down to a specific style you fancy. Be it a having a glamorous edge, floral touch or a more hipster and young vibe. PS: Pinning things on Pinterest or Tumblr works just the same for tech-savvy brides!
Step 2 – Choose your venue
Start venue scouting early to allow yourself ample preparation time. The more resemblance a venue has to the vibe you are looking for, the fewer decorations needed to prepare. This gives you more monetary allowance to fine tune the smaller details that will add character to your wedding! A plus point would be for venues that have existing vintage decors that suits your style. This applies to spaces which have the vibe you’re looking for but they don’t advertise their space for wedding purposes. Always ask if they’re open to the idea of a wedding ceremony to be held at their space. Sometimes you might just be in luck and score yourself a unique venue! Or get in touch with us at Venuescape and we will source the best venue for you.
Step 3 -Decide on a colour scheme
Pick a colour that both you and your fiance can agree upon. Remember, this day is as significant to him as it is to you. If you have no idea on what colour scheme you’d like, go back to square one, your inspiration board. Sleep on it and revisit your inspiration board every now and then before coming to a mutual conclusion. An important note to make when deciding on a colour scheme is, choose neutral and pastel colours to create a romantic vibe that suits the rustic theme.
Step 4 – Preparing your decorative items
This might just be the most important thing on the day itself, besides the presence of the bride and the groom! Now, because this is the main focal point that makes or breaks your themed wedding, you might want to break it up into a few categories to ensure you don’t miss out an important element.

This is one of the most important details that sets the tone of your wedding. Decide on whether you’d like to have fairy lights or glowing lanterns dangling from above. Think about this early and you’d be able to start preparing your glass or paper lanterns the DIY style.

3. Miscellaneous details
This is for all the small details that are as important as the rest. Consider feature decor pieces you’d like to have. Think about a vintage bicycle, tricycle, carriage or briefcases.
