As a planner the one thing I push heavy from the beginning is for my couple to create a consistent theme to their event. Of course we start with colors and then we help them decide their personality and pull it together with all of their details. Some times this can be a task in itself, but once we figure out a vision, it's an exciting adventure thereafter.
iVillage has this great tool called the "Theme Finder" where you can browse suggestions for fabulous gowns, stationery, cakes, bouquets, favors and accessories that will perfectly tie in all the details together. Click on the picture below and check it out! Thanks iVillage! :) Awesome tool!!
