Visualize with a Vision Board!
After those four life changing words:” Will you marry me?” are asked, a million thoughts come flooding into a bride’s head. Ideas such as venues, color schemes and invitations are overwhelming if thought about all at once. A bride needs to be able to organize her thoughts in a simple yet thorough way. A vision board is a great way to do this.
A vision board is a creative way to organize your ideas and goals. People use vision boards to reach their goals in life: getting the job they want, buying their first nice car or becoming a famous singer. It clarifies your goals and it is a constant reminder of where you are trying to get. Using vision boards to plan your wedding helps you achieve the short-term goal of having your dream wedding.
Vision boards can be started on cardboard, poster paper, computer paper or any paper big enough to place your ideas on. The next step is to find what you like and paste it on the vision board. Look through magazines, print out pictures online, or even draw right on the vision board. There are a lot of components to planning a wedding so don’t limit yourself to just one board! Have separate ones for the invitations, your dream dress, ect.
