The modern bride is Pinterest consumed. They plan and design on dream boards and struggle coming up with original thought. Hopefully, these simple tips will help you find your "MUSE."
1. Who are you as a couple?
You have chosen to say I DO and so we know you have common interests, romantic places, and sweet things that are significant to you as a couple. Write those things down. Make a list.

Where did you meet
Where did the proposal occur
Take these and more and start creating... If you are a city girl and love glam you don't need burlap to have a cost affordable event. Create around your interests and what you love.
2. Start with Paper.
Paper products are critically important for each event. Invites set the stage to the formality of the event as well as dictate the theme. Talk to your invitation designer about the overall feel of the night. Have your invites reflect your wedding. The old way of doing invites was you found your nearest Hallmark and flipped through albums that weighed 100 pounds. Now you can have your own personal style represented in artful masterpieces. Set the stage by designing creativity from the start.
3. Have your location represent you. In speaking with a bride today she shared how a particular venue was her dream, but she is getting married in March and so it is ruling out this beautiful outdoor Ranch. Talk to the tent rental company early on and see if tenting the venue is an option. If city views are your dream; check with your venue and see if they have a penthouse or upper view deck for a few stolen moments.
4. Bring your favorites.
If donuts are your love add them to the menu. If you are a baseball fan and love hotdogs have a late night snack hour with ballpark franks. Use your favorites and add them to your day from foods, to gifts.
5. Know when you are inspired.
If another couple's sunset photos inspires you talk to your photographer and develop your own take on the shot you fell in love with. If the wedding cake you love has real flowers and you have an allergy, adapt and communicate your inspiration to the cake designer and see if the flowers could be made with frosting. Know when you are inspired and communicate your ideas.
Don't be afraid to create your own vision. Someday others may be pinning your wedding day shots.
