Tips for Wedding Themes

Wedding Themes

Wedding themes are an exciting part of planning. Your wedding venue should tell your love story with the flowers, colors and designs. We have a few ideas for wedding themes.

Choosing Wedding Themes

Sometimes, choosing wedding themes can be more of a challenge than creating them. Too many options leads to indecisiveness. While the wedding is commonly thought of as the bride’s day, it is important to realize this day is made for two. Work together as a team to incorporate elements that are unique to your relationship. Your wedding venue could recreate a favorite vacation spot or the location of your first date. Your theme can be influenced by the season or a motion picture. You can create a rustic vibe or a sophisticated black tie affair. The first step is to explore design options for wedding themes with your venue and narrow it down to the most meaningful one.

Just Like the Fairy Tale

Let your theme inspire your designs. Your wedding day should be unlike anything done before. There is more than one way to tell a Cinderella story. Wedding themes should be obvious, but not exact. Your theme will be a concept, rather than a replication. Never create expectations for a replica. Think about your favorite books, movies, significant locations or other common interests, and create your rendition of the magical affair. Make this day your unique version of the fairy tale.

Creating Your Theme

Think about the kind of experience you want to create. Do you imagine something fun and playful or romantic and serene? Think of ways to create the experience with the cuisine, entertainment, cake, décor, wedding favors, invitations and place cards. Whether you are looking for obvious or subtle, make it personal and keep it significant to your relationship. This is your theme. Think about the concept in a way that has never been done before.

Make a List

Create a small list of ideas on your journey. Wedding themes have a color scheme. Find your base color and two accent colors that clearly identify your inspiration. Your list should include the type and color of wedding attire, design elements of the cake, décor ideas, types of flowers, ideas for invitations and table décor. Even the way you make your grand exit will make a statement. Think about your ideas and write them down.

Wedding Cake

Your wedding cake is one of the easiest and most creative ways to incorporate wedding themes. A Cinderella inspired wedding might display sky blue fondant with pink and blue roses, gold piping with white overlay of filigree, a clock with hands inching around towards midnight and a golden carriage on top. Rustic wedding themes might showcase a semi-naked wedding cake with the earthy elements of a garden. Add wild flowers to your design to match the season.

Catering for Wedding Themes

Catering is a significant part of every wedding, since most receptions revolve around the food. The cuisine is a main event on the timeline and an opportunity to convey wedding themes. Create a menu with foods that fit the concept. A Beauty and the Beast inspired wedding might serve French cuisine. A beach theme might serve a variety of seafoods. Make sure you share the details of your theme with your caterer.
