Planning Tips

When it comes to planning your wedding, choosing the right style will set the tone for your entire event. It will help dictate your venue, photographer, decor, and your bridal party attire. The great news about choosing an overall wedding style, is that you have plenty of room to move around and innovate within that category (and even mix and match!). We've picked some of our favorite wedding styles, and we're breaking them down and showing you real wedding examples of each! Rustic Rustic weddings have gained a lot of popularity lately, and for a good reason! This wedding style is perfect for the Northwest, we've got a plethora of country venues and rustic elements that can easily be incorporated into your big day.

Incorporate simple silhouettes, classic florals (like roses!), and neutral colors. And don't for one second think that classic=boring. That couldn't be farther from the truth! Oftentimes, classic and simple details throughout a wedding allow the focus to remain on the couple.
