Design inspiration for a wedding can come from anywhere, really. Recently, I worked with Cortnie from Lollipop Events and Jessica Claire from Jessica Claire Wedding Photography to design a travel-themed wedding.
Event designers often use inspiration boards to give a visual voice to their idea and to fine-tune their concept. Here are the inspiration boards Cortnie created:
As a designer, I am very visual, so an inspiration board helps me conceptualize the cake. Once I have my idea, I create my sketch. Sometimes I create numerous sketches. For this particular cake, I was happy with the first sketch, but I ended up changing the design for the actual cake.
