Quick Tips for Choosing Your Wedding Theme

Start with What You Love Your wedding day is all about celebrating you and your partner, so why not start with what you both love? Are you both avid travellers? Perhaps a travel-themed wedding could be the way to go. You could incorporate elements from your favourite destinations into your decor, invitations, and even your menu. Or maybe you both share a love for a particular era, like the roaring ’20s or the groovy ’60s. You could have a vintage dress code, retro music, and decor that takes your guests back in time. The key here is to make it personal and meaningful to you both. Image   Consider Your Venue The venue you choose can also play a significant role in determining your wedding theme. A beach wedding calls for a different theme than a wedding in a grand, historic mansion. For a beach wedding, you might consider a tropical or nautical theme, with decor in shades of blue and white, and perhaps some seashell and starfish accents. For a wedding in a grand mansion, you might opt for a classic, elegant theme with a sophisticated colour palette and luxurious decor. Take a good look at your venue and think about what themes would complement it. Image   Think About Colours Colours can set the mood for your wedding and can be a great starting point for your theme. Do you prefer soft, romantic hues or bold, vibrant colours? Soft hues like blush pink and sage green can create a romantic, whimsical atmosphere, perfect for a garden or vintage-themed wedding. Bold colours like royal blue or emerald green can create a dramatic, luxurious atmosphere, perfect for a modern, elegant wedding. Your colour choices can guide your theme and help tie all the elements of your wedding together.   Don’t Forget the Season The time of year you’re getting married can also influence your theme. A spring wedding might inspire a garden-themed wedding, with lots of floral decorations, pastel colours, and outdoor activities. A winter wedding, on the other hand, might call for a cosy, indoor ceremony with a fireplace, warm colours like burgundy and navy, and winter-themed decor like pinecones and fairy lights. Image   It’s All in the Details Remember, it’s the little details that bring a theme to life. From your invitations to your table settings, think about how you can incorporate elements of your theme throughout your wedding. For example, if you’re having a travel-themed wedding, you could use vintage postcards as your invitations, name your tables after your favourite destinations, and give your guests mini globe favours. Now, I know what you’re thinking – “But Anna, there are so many options, how do I choose just one?” Well, my dear reader, that’s the beauty of it. Your wedding theme doesn’t have to be just one thing. It can be a blend of things that representyou and your partner. The most important thing is that it feels right for you. Perhaps you love the idea of a garden wedding but also want to incorporate your shared love for books. Why not have a garden wedding with a literary twist? You could name your tables after your favourite books or authors, use books as part of your centrepieces, and even include quotes from your favourite literature in your vows or speeches. And remember, there’s no right or wrong when it comes to choosing your wedding theme. It’s your special day, so make it uniquely yours.
