Hey, I'm Lauren.

I'm an Idaho raised, Utah girl and wife to the love of my life, mama to two beautiful baby girls, girl boss with an amazing team supporting me, wedding podcaster and coach, believer and follower of Christ, and, of course, a wedding photographer!

I love telling love stories, uplifting and encouraging, and sharing what I know because sharing is caring! 


Bride Guide #18 is all about choosing your wedding theme and choosing where you two want to get married! From Bountiful Utah wedding photographer Lauren Kay Photography.

 

Your Wedding Theme

Did you know there are so many styles or themes for weddings? Deciding the style of your wedding early on will help you so much throughout the entire planning process. It allows you keep all the details cohesive and communicate better with vendors. Take a bit of time to find your unique style and use it throughout your entire planning process. 

 

Use the questions below to help you choose your theme:

Describe your dream wedding (think who, what, when, where): 

Now with the words below, write down any words that resonate with you:

Traditional

Classic

Rustic

Country

Vintage

Modern

Natural

Glamorous

Bohemian

Whimsical

 

Sharp

Simple

Flashy

Dazzling

Unconventional

Fantastical

Hipster

Cozy

Extravagant

Minimal

Chic

Candid

Fun

Natural

Colorful

Emotional

Real

Journalistic

Fresh

Fine Art

Adventurous

Happy

Passionate

Authentic

Vibrant

Edgy

Bright

Intimate

Laid-back

Elaborate

Look at your list. Find the similarities between the words you circled and narrow it down. Pick three words you feel like really describe your unique style (you can also reference your inspiration board to help you). Check all your decisions with these words and use them to communicate with your vendors.

 

My style is:

Where

Where are you going to get married? Where you’re from? Where he’s from? Where you’re living now? Where you’re going to end up? Or an exotic location? Deciding where to get married should be between the two of you. You don’t have to get married where you grew up. You don’t need to cater to others and where they live. Remember, the people who you are inviting are people closest to you. They will do all the can to be there no matter where it is. I have flown and driven thousands of miles for weddings. The people who can make it will come. 

 

Choose where you two want to get married. Think of where would be most meaningful and get married there. 

 

 

Remember…

  • Keep in mind what will be most convenient for planning. Even though this doesn’t need to be a deal breaker, it is so helpful to get married somewhere you are currently living close to.
  • Keep your wedding events in the same place. Once you choose your temple, choose a venue and a wedding night hotel in that same area to minimize time driving.

 

Ask yourself…

  • What are our options? (List them all out no matter how likely they are.)
  • Is this place meaningful for both of us?
  • Is it convenient for planning?
  • Is this where we both want to get married?
  • How often do we want to be able to revisit this temple or venue? And will it be possible?
