The blank canvas wedding has been growing in popularity in recent years. While it’s always been an option for couples, it seems more and more love birds are starting to understand the idea of having total control over their special day.
What is a ‘blank canvas wedding’?
With a blank canvas wedding, you are able to customise every aspect of the day. It starts by choosing a venue such as a private field or garden, tent or marquee, and then personalising the whole look, feel, and style.
You call the shots, you can book in the food and drinks you want, decorate how you like in order to reflect your personal style, and have control over the costs too.
The Pros of a Blank Canvas Wedding
Here’s why they can be the best way to get hitched:
Blank canvas weddings are becoming more popular which means there is a huge range of choices for you as more and more venues and vendors come into the market.
They are also popular with guests, who get to enjoy a much more fun, relaxed, and easy day as you’ve planned a wedding day that suits you and your loved ones, rather than just another cookie-cutter type of wedding.
Another pro of blank canvas weddings is the ability to control your budget. You can spend more on one element of the wedding if it’s important to you, and less on other areas. For example, maybe you really value great food but are willing to save on decorations, or maybe you want to prioritise the flowers but are willing to save on a live band.
You can also source more affordable options for all elements of the day, and choose the vendors that suit you the best.
Do it ‘your way’
You can do as little or as much as you want… you can hire in the experts (see our Wedding & Event Vendors list) or do it all yourselves.
So whether you opt for a relaxed canape style afternoon, or a more formal seated dining option, and whether you want to focus on the dance floor or the cake, it’s all up to you.
Enjoy total control
This is the big one. Sometimes, even the best wedding venues can sometimes leave you feeling like it’s not your choice over things.
You might get charged for things you don’t want or need or limit you to certain elements of the wedding in terms of style or other factors.
