Top Tips For Choosing Your Wedding Theme

28th November 2015 |By | Be the first to comment

Your wedding theme is the canvas of your wedding day and your decor, colour scheme, favours, and even your wedding dress will all tie in to your chosen theme in some way or another. So you want to make sure you choose the right one for you; here are our top tips for choosing your wedding theme.

Top Tips for Choosing Your Wedding Theme |

1) Get Inspired

If you have absolutely no idea where to begin, start by keeping an open mind and hitting all the sources of inspiration you can think of. Go crazy and pin those hundreds upon hundreds of images on Pinterest, research real weddings, take a browse of some themed decorations, and think about all the things you love and might want to incorporate in your theme. Don’t be afraid of going to your friends and family for ideas too.

2) Think Seasons and Setting

If you have a rough idea of when in the year you’d like to get married, and where (at home or abroad?), use that as the building block for your theme. Spring weddings will usually be naturally bright and green, and autumn weddings will be traditionally dusky and elegant; a wedding held in rural Britain will be beautifully homely and tranquil compared with the tropical paradise of a wedding in the Caribbean.


3) Make It Personal

Probably the most important thing when deciding on your theme is to choose one that means something to you and your partner. It should reflect something about the two of you, both now and in the years to come, so work together to make a decision.

4) Get Organised

You may find that you’re spoilt for choice—after all, there are so many stunning ideas out there. That means it’s time to look carefully at all of the ideas you’ve gathered, see what you really want, and organise it all in a way that you can work through it in a process of elimination. Once again Pinterest is an invaluable tool, but some artistic brides may even want to make a scrapbook of ideas. Simply select your favourite ideas and work them into a theme of your own. There’s nothing wrong with using bits and pieces from a few themes, but if they’re each very, very different you may end up with a bit of a random theme with no rhyme or rhythm. Unless that’s your intention (because two fused themes can work very well, like vintage winter or beachside bohemian), try to be selective so that everything complements each other.

5) Have Fun

Finally, have some fun while deciding on your theme. It can be a relaxing experience, and there are no hard-and-fast rules as to what your theme should and shouldn’t be. Whatever you decide, just make sure you and your partner are happy with it..
