Why make one?
These style boards can be extremely beneficial for brides. Not only does this help you get all of your ideas out of your head and down on paper to see how they look, but it helps others too. Showing this to your wedding planner, florist, baker, etc. can really help them to see exactly what you’re envisioning for your big day, and help you to get there. You could have an idea in your head that sounds great, but once you actually have it in front of you, it may not be exactly as you had imagined. The style board allows you to play around with various ideas and see exactly what you want and don’t want for your nuptials.
All of us at Invitations by Dawn rely heavily on style boards to help us spark some inspiration as well. We recently wrote about one of our favorite trends (which is also a favorite among brides) which is travel. Our style board consisted of all of the travel-themed ideas that we fell in love with: map wedding invitations, a travel suitcase where guests can put cards, a globe for guests to sign in place of a guestbook, a DIY map garland, map-themed insoles for wedding shoes (what a cute way to incorporate the theme), a train station engagement photo and finally the cutest travel themed centerpiece.
