The wedding mood board: a very useful tool to plan the wedding of your dreams

A wedding is one of the most important days in the life of a couple.

Organising such a special event requires time, commitment and creativity.

But where to start from?

What is a wedding mood board?

A wedding mood board is a board, a visual collage or a virtual notice board where bride and groom can collect all their ideas and inspiration for their wedding.

Basically, it is a collection of images, fabrics, colour palettes and other elements that can express an idea of what the big day could be like, representing the style and atmosphere and anticipating the mood and suggestions that the event should convey.

It is a very useful tool to communicate ideas and inspirations to the wedding planner, family and friends involved in the organisation of the event.

Without getting too lost in rough descriptions, misunderstandable requests and templates that are not always clear to everyone, the mood board speaks through pictures and has the not inconsiderable advantage of being clear right from the start.

How to create a wedding mood board?

There are several options to create a versatile and eye-catching wedding mood board, but we are sure that each couple’s imagination and predisposition will suggest the best formula.

Here are some tips to get started right away.

Use Pinterest or Instagram to save the images you like. Pinterest is well suited to this purpose because it gives you the opportunity to create a separate folder for each aspect of the wedding (flowers, arrangements, tables, furniture, etc.) and easily share it with other people.

Cut out the photos that you like most from fashion, lifestyle or gossip magazines.

Use applications such as Canva or Adobe Spark to process the collected material.

Once you have collected enough images, select those that best represent the style and atmosphere you want for your wedding.

Make also sure to include details such as flowers, fabrics, furniture, centrepieces, decorations, place cards, tableau ideas, invitations and graphic material and more.

Organise the chosen information and images on a virtual board or create a physical one with photos and other decorations and share the project with family and friends.

If you are a person who likes to collaborate, evaluate suggestions and proposals and involve trusted people in the development of your projects, you can always do it with apps like Trello, Notion or Dropbox Paper, which allow you to turn your mood board into a virtual collaborative platform for a team of users.

To conclude: a wedding mood board will not only help you to fix your ideas, but also to communicate them clearly and precisely to your wedding planner.

Moreover, if you need to make changes to the wedding design, the mood board can be easily updated and shared.
