Lifestyle: How to plan the perfect occasion with AW Bridal

At one point, I worked in events. I got to witness many weddings and fancy parties. Hopefully I picked up a few tips along the way. Here are my top 5 tips on how you can help make a special day absolutely perfect, by Rosa Fairfield.

The smaller details
The finer details really make for the perfect visual spectacle. Making sure everything fits, right down to the napkin rings can give an event that extra special something. The little touches are often what guests pick up on and remember too. I saw a Harry Potter wedding once, and they even had tiny little potions bottles. You can find a variety of cute pieces, some of which are ESTY Personal Made, you can also purchase AW Bridal Tiaras, if you'd like to feel like a princess for the day.

Colour Schemes
This is arguably the most important part of planning any event (at least to me). You should explore the colour wheel and experiment with different colour mixes. AW Bridal® have a Colour and Theme tab, where you can search for items based on certain colours. As a little tip, I'd say muted colours tend to give a more sophisticated edge then brights, but that depends on what feel you're going for. 

Styling the venue
This all adds up to the overall atmosphere. It sounds obvious, but it's important to pay close attention to making sure the dress code matches the decor. I've seen many events where the dress code just seems a little off compared to the surroundings. Of course, sometimes having a mismatch can be striking if pulled off correctly. 

Style of Dress
This can really alter the vibe of an event. Long dresses tend to give a more ethereal feel, whereas short dresses give off a fun atmosphere. You could even decide on a mixture of styles. Davids Bridal® USA offer a variety of gowns so you can really play around with this. 
Simple vs Elaborate
You don't always have to have a massive elaborate affair. Minimalism done correctly can often look even more visually pleasing than a theatrical venture in a grand hall. You just have to have a clear idea in your mind of what you want your event to look like. Simple is best pulled off with block colours and un-patterned designs of a same texture. 

The best advice I can give is to keep an open mind and experiment with things. It's easy to end up developing a fixed plan in your mind of how the event should look. It's all so dependant on the spaces available though, and sometimes you can find something you like the look of more when you're in the process of planning and styling. Like, if your venue has a lot of blue, it might be worth factoring that into your colour scheme.

So, those are my tips... and okay, most of them are all about the styling, but, well... hopefully the non-logistics will come naturally. You can find out more via this aw bridal Review.
