Your wedding dress and your wedding theme will be two of the biggest things on your mind as you go about planning your wedding. So you may be wondering if your dress will fit with your theme and worrying that you can’t get your dress until you decide on your theme, or vice versa. But you can use one wedding dress for multiple wedding themes if you choose your decoration and accessories right.
Glamourous bride and white appliqué wedding dress – style D5196 from Eternity Bride.

Featuring Eternity Bride’s dress, style D5196, we’ll show you how one dress can fit the three themes, Classic Ivory and Gold, Contemporary Vintage, and Art Deco, with a choice selection of items and accessories.
Classic Ivory and Gold
Ivory and gold is a beautiful and traditional wedding theme and colour scheme. It’s simple but elegant and is very easy to accessorise. This theme can be basic or elaborate, but either way it looks gorgeous.

Classic weddings can be held anywhere, from churches, hotels, country houses—wherever you want. But this theme really comes alive in an open space filled with light.
For this theme we have white or ivory items with hints of gold—smooth and clean-cut with ribbon and lace and pearls. With the ornate gold detailing on Eternity Bride’s dress, these colours go perfectly and can be spread across your entire wedding celebration from flowers and decorations to jewellery, bridesmaid dresses, and wedding favours.
Contemporary vintage is all of the allure of vintage but with none of the expense—items are newly made but recreate an aged, antique effect.

Vintage weddings are at home in historic venues such as castles and manor houses. But because contemporary vintage is like new vintage, there’s all manner of possibility with what angle you might take—you can have a garden picnic wedding reception in a meadow or under a marquee, or host a tea party under light-strung trees or in a glass greenhouse.
Elaborate patterns add life and complexity to all vintage decorations, and warm glows of candle light from lights such as our Bell-Shaped Glass Tealight Holders make this theme that much richer. Alongside our featured dress, with its lace appliqué and gold detail, this contemporary vintage theme looks perfect.
Art Deco is characterised by its rich colours and geometric, symmetrical shapes. It’s a theme that echoes the lavish Roaring Twenties with its glamourous twists of vintage.

Wedding venues well-suited to art deco themes include luxurious mansions and ballrooms. Here, the settings speak for themselves and will dazzle your guests through period Jazz Age splendour.
So, when it comes to deciding on your wedding dress or your wedding theme it depends a lot on what you’re looking for. Not all wedding dresses will be suitable for multiple wedding themes, but some, as seen here, definitely will.
