When you get engaged, apparently you’re supposed to know two things right away:
1. Your wedding date
2. Your bridal style
You’d think as a style writer I’d know my “bridal style” right? Um, no. I also write for bridal magazines so I should really know, right? Erm, no. So how does one go about discovering your bridal style? Honestly, I was really hoping for a multiple choice quiz à la Glamour. You know the kind:
1. Where is your favorite place for dinner?
A. Modern Steak
C. Lon’s at the Hermosa
D. My parent’s house
Congratulations! If you picked mostly As you’re a modern bride! You should consider a wedding at W Scottsdale and insert-list-of-other-contemporary-wedding-venues-here.
Seriously though, why can’t it be that simple?
(I may or may not be pitching this idea to my editor.)
Until then, it’s all trial and error and by that, I mean pouring over images on blogs, magazines and Pinterest.
I know I’m not a beach bride. I’m probably not a bohemian bride either. Do most women just know these things? I sure don’t. And I’ve had a hell of a time finding what feels like the perfect place for us.
In the meantime, there’s plenty of pretty pictures to get some inspiration going.
How did you find your bridal style?
