Perhaps one of the greatest things we possess in this life is our signature. Not the name at the bottom of a contract, but more importantly that innate uniqueness that seems to identify us to the rest of the world. For some of us our signature is bold and always around us. It seems to extend outside of us and leave our name on everything we do and everywhere we go. I have found that over the course of many years of planning weddings in our Utah reception centers I have taken notice of how many of our brides are undeliberately wearing the exact colors of their wedding theme each time we meet with them. This is because whether intentional or not we have known for years what we like and what we don’t…gradually developing our own sense of style. I have also come to know that some of us are actually born with our signature already engraved on our DNA.
This past year was a double delight for me as a wedding designer. I had two of my own children get married in 2013, and today my oldest son and daughter-in-law celebrated their third wedding anniversary. I have also had the joyous opportunity of planning the weddings of my nieces and nephews, each of their weddings a direct reflection of who they are.
Whether the inspiration stemmed from the simple pleasures of nature, or feathers and cotton candy, elegance and opulence, or glamorous blissful elation, every wedding became a distinct signature of the bride and groom they celebrated. One of the first questions to consider before beginning to plan the details of your wedding is what do you want your guests to feel when they arrive? Color plays a really significant part in how your wedding looks and feels, so consider your color pallet carefully. The type of flowers, your choice of food, the style of the bridesmaids dresses and the attire of the groomsmen. ..every element plays a part in setting the stage for your wedding day. Be true to yourself. Follow your heart. Look in the mirror and think of what makes you smile. Gather some of your favorite things and look at them closely. There is a reason that they are your favorites. Is there a color combination, or a theme, a feeling or an apparent style? Our wedding planners are here to help you pull it all together. Their creativity is endless and the possibilities are unlimited. Come and let us create a signature wedding that has your name written all over it.
