Wedding moodboard: what is it and how to create yours

You’re planning your wedding and undoubtedly have an idea of how you’d like it to be. But how can you turn those thoughts into reality? Luckily, one of the most helpful tools for wedding planners and couples alike is a moodboard. In this article, we’ll explore what a wedding moodboard is and how you can make one for your big day.


What is a wedding moodboard?


First and foremost, a moodboard is a visual collection of images, colors, fabrics, and other elements. It captures the desired atmosphere and style for your wedding. Whether a physical collage on a board or a digital compilation on a computer or tablet, moodboards help couples visualize their wedding and coordinate various design elements.



How to create a wedding moodboard


  1. Inspiration: Gather images that inspire you—wedding photos, flowers, dresses, and decor. Magazines, blogs, Pinterest, and social media are excellent sources.
  2. Color Palette: Next, color choices are crucial. They set the foundation for all wedding design decisions. Opt for a palette that mirrors your style and the ambiance you wish to create.
  3. Design: Beyond images and colors, including fabrics, flowers, and decorations in your moodboard. These elements assist in visualizing how they’ll fit into your wedding.
  4. Organization: After you’ve compiled all components, arrange them on your moodboard. Make them easy to see and understand. Group them by category, color, or any method that helps you visualize.
  5. Sharing: Finally, share your moodboard with your wedding planner, partner, and anyone else involved in the planning. This step ensures everyone is on the same page.
