I’m always talking about my thoughts on throwing a killer event, but today I thought I’d share some of my favourite Instagram accounts where I often get event inspiration from. After all, even experienced event planners in Vancouver need a little collaboration to get inspired on occasion.
Here’s a peek at some of my favourite Instagram accounts for event inspiration:
One of Australia’s largest hospitality companies, these guys call themselves “hospitalitarians,” which I think is awesome. They’re a large-scale organization with over 1,000 employees, so they have a ton of resources at their disposal and it shows in the elaborate quality of their events. Just check out some of those tables!
This is basically porn for colour palettes. Remember that blog post I wrote about picking a colour scheme? Wel, this account is the perfect place to get some event inspiration for your colour palette! From bubblegum-coloured sunsets to luscious turquoise seascapes, these guys curate the absolute best in colourful images, but be warned: it’s one of those pages you’ll still find yourself scrolling through hours later, so maybe don’t start if you actually have something you need to do.
Another Australian-based creative group (Australia is my second home, so it’s only natural that I take inspiration from their event culture as well), that specializes in event design and styling. I love some of their monochromatic displays, but also their use of botanicals, like forest settings and floral arrangements. I find this very central to Australian event design; they’re big on beachy, botanical vibes and these guys are no exception.
Mindy Weiss is a veteran-event planner based in Beverly Hills, California who plans events all over the globe and has a ton of celebrity clients. She even handled Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello’s wedding! Aside from her event work, she’s also an author and has a line of wedding stationery and bridal jewellery. I just love looking at her wedding party shots, some of them are to die for. Plus it’s always fun to see which celebrities you can spot!
This minimalist but super gorgeous feed is brought to you by The Nouveau Romantics, who specializes in luxe weddings. When I need wedding inspo, this is my go-to feed. I love the exquisite details in some of their shots and their soft, pastel palettes.
Well, there you have it. That should keep you scrolling for a while.
Instagram is such a great place to find event inspiration, whether it’s for colour schemes, place settings or venues and I highly recommend it as a tool. Give these accounts a follow and while you’re at it, take a look at my feed too @susanna_stewart.
