Every beautiful wedding has a theme. It’s important to make sure that you have chosen a theme that you love. After all, you want your wedding day to be planned to the finest detail. Having a theme ensures that your big day looks organised and well thought out. Having a miss-matched affair will only serve to make your wedding day look messy. You need to consider what your theme will be in the run up to your big day.
Having a beautiful wedding day is important for many brides and grooms. You do need to remember that you are having a day that is important for you. You don’t have to please a room full of people. When planning your wedding, don’t forget to lose sight of why you are doing it in the first place. This will ensure that you have a great day; that is well thought out and stress-free.
Let’s take a look at some amazing wedding themes that you can use on your wedding day. Putting together the ideal theme need not be a difficult task when you use these amazing tips and hints.
- Think About Your Own Style
Are you something of a rock goddess? Or are you more bohemian in your style? Thinking about your personal tastes is essential for making your big day a resounding success. If you are not all sugary pink and princess like in your everyday look, you don’t want to incorporate this kind of theme into your big day. Having something that suits your personal style is important. There is a wealth of wedding planning ideas that you can use, but remember to include your own style too. You want to make sure that your big day is an accurate reflection of your own personal style and likes. Don’t be a crowd pleaser, have what you and your betrothed want and what is a reflection of your own personalities. Your guests will love the personalised touch of your big day.
- Don’t Go For Fashionable Themes
Okay, so the rustic look is looming large for 2014 and 2015. But, if you are not a country girl at heart, you don’t have to have this kind of wedding just because it is trendy. This links back to your fundamental style. Think carefully about what you want. If you only have something because it is fashionable, you will come to hate your wedding photos in ten years time.
After all, your wedding day may only be one day in your life, but you will be thinking about it for many years to come. Make sure that you choose a theme that is akin to your style. This is the key to wedding day success.
- Country Chic
The country chic look is very in right now. Little wonder too. It is perfect in every way. Hessian, bunting and lace is proving to be very popular. The key to keeping this kind of theme looking fabulous is to avoid colour. Stick to neutral tones. Cream, beige and grey can all look cute when included together. For some, this is the perfect way to host an elegant wedding. It is easy to put together and doesn’t have to cost a fortune.
- A Vintage Affair
The vintage tea party theme is bigger than ever. Cups, saucers and chintzy china are proving to be a key theme this year and next. Some women are opting for 1950s style bridal gowns. The fit and flare look is flattering on all body shapes. Polka dots and bright red lips look positively stunning. You need to consider whether you like this look. A rock and roll, vintage themed wedding looks divine. Think Elvis meets Marilyn, and you are on the right lines. Music choices should include key pop stars from the 1950s too. Polka dots will feature heavily and look nothing short of perfect.
- Bright and Bold
For some brides, the vintage theme is a little dull. Some brides and grooms want a big, colourful affair. There is an excellent way that you can have a bright and bold wedding day without it looking tacky. Stick to a white palette in terms of table clothes and clothes. Add colours in terms of flowers and decorations. Go crazy with primary bright colours. Your colour palette doesn’t have to stick to one key colour. Adopt three or four different tones so that your theme is fun and inviting. Keep the colour tones complimenting but contrasting. Honeycomb balls in bright neon’s can look perfect in your chosen wedding venue. Going for bright and bold doesn’t mean that it looks messy. In fact, it can look utterly perfect.
- Movie Inspired Wedding Themes
Lots of people are choosing to have movie inspired themes. Alice in Wonderland and Disney movies in general are going to feature heavily in lots of weddings. The key to this is to use decorations and accessories to incorporate this theme. You may want to walk down the aisle dressed as the Mad Hatter, but it may look a little odd. Keep the tone of your wedding classy, but fun with movie inspired decor and centrepieces.
- Colour Matching: It’s More Important Than What You Think
When you are considering what colours to use for your wedding theme, you need to consider your wedding party. Use your favourite colour in your wedding day, if you want to keep it simple. But, if your favourite colour is neon green, you may want to consider toning it down. Olive greens and pastel shades suit most skin tones. What is more, they look elegant and stylish too. You want your wedding party to comfortable in their chosen attire. Stick to simple, pastel tones and primary colours. You don’t want people to feel conspicuous on your wedding day.
- Use Social Media for Inspiration
Social media is not just used for looking at funny images of cats. You can use it to inspire your wedding day. Facebook and Pinterest are great for finding key themes and colours that you can use on your wedding day. Start a mood board from your social media searches and start your planning in earnest.
