The wedding theme is the central guide from which all other aesthetic decisions are based and sets the tone for the whole wedding ceremony. With so many different wedding styles and themes to select from, it’s common for many couples to become hung up on this big hurdle very early on in the wedding planning process. Don’t let it be. Take the time to plan ahead and you’ll have a wonderful day.
The most important thing to remember when selecting wedding theme ideas is that the size of your budget doesn’t always have to match the chosen style. If you’re willing to spend a fortune on flowers and fabrics, why not select a grand style for your wedding with only the best bridal attire? On the other hand, if you have a small wedding budget, go with a more simple motif. Either way, there are plenty of unique wedding theme ideas to fit any budget and any lifestyle.
If your gown of honor is an elegant ball gown, why not celebrate by selecting a classic themed evening gown wedding? Perhaps you prefer a Victorian theme that depicts a bride in her exquisite bridal gown, surrounded by her bridesmaids and groomsmen in traditional buttoned-up white tails. Guests could dress in pastel suits or aprons reminiscent of a country wedding. You could even decorate your reception room with candles and floral arrangements in a classical style, complete with ribbons in the same shades as the silk draped tables.
A fun theme for a beach wedding could center on a tropical beach. You could rent flip flop chairs and tanning beds to set the stage for a tropical barbeque. Decorating the reception with white flowers and coconut scented candles would be a great way to start. With the live band playing traditional instruments, it will feel like you are on an exotic vacation!
An updated wedding theme might be based on a roaring 20s era. For example, you can decorate with pinball machines, hamburgers and shakes and plastic wagons. Decorating with zebra print fabrics, bold yellows and teal will really take the fun aspect of the roaring 20s theme to the next level. Make sure the pinball machines and plastic wagons are not too close to each other as the colorful decorations may contrast too much.
A beautiful setting for a classic celebration is one with a classic color scheme. You can incorporate timeless favorite flowers and colors in your floral displays and tables centerpiece. Guests will remember this wedding theme idea for years to come.
Outdoor wedding theme ideas are always a fun way to decorate a venue. If you plan on holding the event at an outdoor venue, you have a few additional options to consider when planning your menus and floral arrangements. For example, if you plan on using an open air or covered area for the reception, you can decorate the area with a variety of outdoor plants and flowers. This type of decoration is especially nice during a humid weather. In addition to flowers, guests will love the chance to be outdoors and enjoy the warm summer evenings.
Whatever the size of your venue, you should consider decorating it in a unique and modern style. You can do a lot with the limited space that you have and save money by planning for a big day on a budget. It is important to keep your theme consistent throughout your venue and have a unified color scheme on all of your items. Keep it simple, yet creative and you will have a wonderful reception. Just make sure you hire a professional wedding planner that knows how to plan and decorate for the big day so you can focus on having fun with your friends and family.
