Julia and Steve are planning their perfect winter wedding and are going to use Art of Where to make their special day unique!

They've chosen to go with beautiful pastel colours for their theme, and have picked pale pink, cream and periwinkle blue flowers for decoration. The couple wants to work with Art of Where to create invitations, a guestbook, scarves and peignoirs that fit in flawlessly with their theme.

Because Julia and Steve want their wedding to be original, they are working with a friend of theirs who is a graphic designer. This way they can get custom artwork made that will work with their theme and meet the design guidelines of Art of Where. If you don't happen to have a very talented designer friend, there are web sites like Fivver, Upwork and Freelancer which can help you find the best person for the job.

To make sure the graphic designer knows what direction they want to go in, Steve sent some inspirational images to her:

A few more tips:

Time

When ordering anything for your wedding day, make sure you leave plenty of time to receive it. That way, if there is any issue, it can be resolved without too much stress.

Delegate

DIY weddings are cheaper and often the best way get exactly what you've hoped for, but planning can be really hard to manage when you're also working, have kids, pets and other responsibilities. Delegate to friends and family when you can.

Due diligence

Make sure that any artwork you use is being reproduced legally. If you or the graphic designer you hire plan on using stock images, verify the licenses you have. Make sure it's ok for you to have that work printed on your chosen products.

Enjoy

Cherish all the time you spend together working out all the details. The ups and downs will end up giving you the best stories to tell for years to come!
