So, you're engaged to be married, congratulations, yay!!!! Now....where do you start???!
These days more than ever, people want their weddings to be a unique reflection of their personalities, passions and interests. They want to take inspiration from what others have done before them but with their own new twists on it. Out with the old, in with the new! Here at Bellaboo and Beau, we always have our minds one step ahead of trends and often outside of trends altogether, so whether you are fashion-savvy or simply want a day that compares to no other, we can help you.
CONSISTENCY & CONCEPTS
We believe that one of the key factors to a well-styled wedding is consistency. This does not mean that everything has to match as that just sounds plain boring! Consistency can still clash, it can be chaotic and carefree. It's just about finding and honing in on those common elements and concepts that can be used throughout every element in their own unique way, from the stationery to the favours, the table settings to the backdrop....and more. We like to find concepts that are meaningful to you, whether it's your fiances love of Game of Thrones, cycling, music or the great outdoors, it helps us to create a wedding that is specially designed just for you, as a couple.
WORKING WITH THEMES
Now, themes doesn't just mean raiding Poundland for every prop and inflatable statue that will work a treat on your hawaiian/casino/halloween party! There is a classier way to work with a theme. It helps you to maintain consistency while giving inspiration for original ideas.... for example.... IF you want a mystic themed wedding you might choose to have jewel colours, tarot card style invitations, agate slice name places and perhaps some darker colours in your flowers and wedding cake.
Perhaps you want a beach themed wedding but want something different to what has been done before. Something other than flip flop favours and sandcastle wine bottle buckets....?
PINTEREST WEDDING BOARDS
Are you bogged down and overwhelmed with ideas of all the things you could potentially do, buy, have or make for your wedding? The world of Pinterest and Instagram can help us to figure out what we would like but it can also hinder us as it can be an inspiration and idea overload. This can often mean that you don't know where to start, you worry that you won't be able to have EVERYTHING that you want and it can be hard to stay on track. So often when we start work with a couple, their wedding Pinterest board resembles a concoction of a million ideas but often, there is nothing there hanging them together and they can appear a bit, well, muddled. We can work with you, from whatever stage you are at, to turn your dream into a reality. Providing you with props, sourcing suppliers, making bespoke items and then dressing and coordinating on the day.
Having been doing this job for 5 years we know that you want the freedom to pick and choose the things that you get help with and spend your budget on. For this reason, we have broken our styling services down into stages. They all run on from each other and it is a very organic process but this way you get to choose exactly what it is you need our help with. See the stages below... and see our special flowchart here to see where best you might fit in.
This is for making, finding, sourcing, buying, building, contacting, and all the other 'ings'...
