Creating a Vision Board for your wedding

Visualisation is of paramount importance in successfully realising your goals.  Creating a vision board for your wedding keeps you on track when it comes to taking the next step in your planning process. It also helps you keep on track when you see so many things that you think you like and want for your wedding. You can refer back to your vision board and be reminded of your exact theme.

Let’s look at the various steps in creating a functional vision board. It is most crucial to get clear about your wedding goals: what you want to ACHIEVE!

A well designed wedding vision board should be:


Start collating colourful pictures from magazines or anywhere else.  These pictures must be compelling to you and congruent with your goals.  Your subconscious mind works in pictures and images, so make your vision board as visual as possible with as many pictures as you can. Sign up for free to Pinterest and make your vision board electronic. You can share your wedding planning board with anyone helping you plan your wedding.


Make sure that each image that you put on your board resonates with your heart and makes you excited every time you look at it. You can supplement your pictures with quotes and phrases to increase the emotional response you get from it. Your vision board should evoke a positive emotional response from you. The mere sight of your vision board should make you happy and fuel your passion to achieve your goals every time you look at it.


If you want to cut pictures out of magazines and make it a manual visual board, then do that. When my sister was getting married, I gave both her and Mum a fluffy wedding pen and folder set. This meant that Mum could collect her ideas in the old fashioned way – manually, but still be involved in the fun planning stages.
