Mood Boards are a popular new way for brides (or event planners) to communicate their ideas for themes, colors, and style to their vendors. But they are not really a new thing. Years ago, brides cut and pasted ideas for their wedding into noteooks. Many people use "vision boards" to express their thoughts about their future - goals, missions, or resolutions. More recently, Pinterest became a popular way for people to "cut and paste" photos from the Internet to an online bulletin board that highlighted their favorite ideas. But sometimes those boards got crowded with ideas that later became irrelevant as the person narrowed their thoughts. And sometimes Pinterest boards can be difficult to share. Mood Boards can be physical, or virtual. They distill your ideas into one, simple, board - a collage of 5-6 photos showing the key themes, styles, and colors you desire for your event. Pinterest Boards can still be used to manage your Mood Board, or you can use a photo editing program or app (I like Adobe Photo Shop or Pic Collage), to combine photos into a one-page *pdf document you can email to your vendors. (You can also do this in Word.) Mood Board can also be a great way for florists, stylists, and event planners to express their understanding of what their clients want. Below are some example of mood boards for a backyard wedding:

Your wedding day is certainly a day that you’ll want your guests to remember. Chances are you already picked out a hashtag to represent your big day, so that your closest friends and family can share their favorite memories on social media. But did you know that you can create your own on-demand Snapchat filter to represent your wedding? Having a unique Snapchat filter for your wedding is a great way to not only impress your guests but to make your wedding extra memorable!
Creating your own filter is actually quite simple! We even went ahead and did most of the work for you with our 14 floral-inspired wedding templates below using example wedding photos to help you visualize the final product. Simply choose a template, and enter the bride’s and groom’s names, their initials, or the wedding date by clicking on the text fields. Once you’ve inputted the appropriate wedding details, click on the “Save This Filter” button and your customized filter will appear in a popup window. Just right click on the image and click “Save Image As” to download the filter.
Voila! You’ve just created a unique wedding Snapchat filter! Please note that the downloaded filter will not include the photo shown, and will have a transparent background that’s ready to go.
SAVE SNAPCHAT FILTER After you’ve downloaded your Snapchat filter, simply upload it to Snapchat on their On-Demand Geofilters page. Note that geofilters can only be created on desktop devices so you won’t be able to find this functionality on your mobile app.
Once you’ve logged in, you’ll be asked to input additional details about your wedding, such as the location, time and area in which you’d like the filter to be available. Important note: Be sure to upload your filter 3-4 days in advance to allow plenty of time for your filter to get approved. On the day of your wedding, you’ll be delighted to find your special Snapchat filter available for all your guests to enjoy. You can find out more details about the uploading process here: https://www.snapchat.com/on-demand.
