Guest Blog by Kelly Sugano of A Perfect Day Weddings

Every wedding begins with a vision! A great way to explore and organize your ideas is with a Wedding Vision Board. A Vision Board allows you to not only display all of your ideas, dreams, and wishes, but also serves as an amazing way to manifest your goals. Your vision board will keep your dream alive while also showing others exactly what you’re looking for!  

Wedding Vision Board


When you think of your wedding day the first thing you think of probably isn’t budgeting or timelines, but instead the ambiance and vibe of your big day! The style of your wedding can greatly influence the energy and feel of your big day, from your decor to flowers! Your choice of venue, guest count, and even the vendors play a big role in this vision! Manifesting your dreams into reality begins with a purpose, so why do you need a wedding vision board?

  • They Keep you Organized
    • As you may know, there is so MUCH wedding content out there! You can get wedding ideas from TV Shows, Movies, Vlogs, Social Media, Books, YouTube, and so many other mediums that it’s really easy to be overwhelmed with all things weddings. Vision boards are a great way to organize all your thoughts and help you focus on the details that you really want!
  • They help you Establish a Voice
    • When planning a wedding many of your family and friends may want to get involved. They may start providing advice, ideas, and their own opinions for what you should and shouldn’t do. Having a wedding vision board that captures what you truly want will be your guide through the opinions of others and allow you to have something that you can constantly circle back to and ensure that you are only including what you truly want!
