THEWEDDINGPLANNERMAG.COM 23 How will you personalize your wed- ding day so it not only feels like you, but "looks" like your unique love story as well? There are limitless options available to today's bride and numerous resources to help you create your very own picture perfect party! Weddings have always been synonymous with beautiful flowers, and a consultation with a floral designer can be a great place to start as you plan your palette. As you scan popular websites and magazines, bookmark and tear out things that make you smile. A professional designer can look at your many different ideas and help you determine exactly which elements will best reflect your personality. Or, consider the magical transformation that custom event lighting can make in a room, including uplights, pin spots and dramatic chandeliers. You might even look for inspiration in non-traditional places as well. You wouldn't be the first bride to peruse the paint chip section of the local home improvement store in search of the perfect hues. When considering your overall look, do think beyond just floral touches and bridesmaids' dresses. You may want to incorporate the perfect linens, or upgrade your chairs to reflect a certain vision. There are even specialty rental companies that provide alternative furnishings, like vintage-look or antique armchairs, farm-style tables and plush loveseats. Pair these with lighting upgrades such as pin-spotting, uplighting or gorgeous chande- liers and you can transform practically any space into the perfect setting for your celebration. Finally, don't neglect your paper products! Long gone are the days when you simply chose an invitation to set the tone for your day. Now you can carry your theme through many printed products including custom programs, escort cards, table numbers and more. If you dream of a wedding that sets the trends for the new year, get to work now assembling the photos you'll need for ref- erence, and scheduling consultations with the many professionals who will help you achieve that dream.
