Your wedding theme sets the tone for your special day. Whether you opt for a classic, white wedding or a rustic, farmyard vibe, the key to making it work is selecting a theme that really embodies who you and your partner are as a couple. So, how do you go about choosing the perfect wedding theme, especially when there are just so many options out there?
Here are some tips.
Consider your venue
The venue that you opt for will play a large role in dictating your wedding theme. For instance, if you want a rustic wedding, a barn or farm-style venue will play into your vision. However, if you have a classic white wedding in mind, the same venue may not fit in with your ideas quite as well as you would hope.
Think about the details
Once you have chosen a great wedding theme, delve into the details so to ensure that it is as memorable as it can possibly be. For instance, a classic luxury wedding could benefit from a magical butterfly release moment. This is when countless beautiful butterflies are released from a box and flutter into the sky as a symbol of the beauty and freedom of your love for each other.
When you purchase butterfly release wedding packages, your guests can get involved by providing each one with an origami envelope containing a butterfly that will be released in your queue. These little details can truly make the world of difference to your big day.
Think about your color scheme
No matter what theme you eventually decide upon, the colors used throughout your wedding venue should complement it. Some brides will actually select these colors (usually no more than two or three) before they even select their theme and then choose a theme to match.
For example, ice blue and white would work well for a winter wonderland wedding, while gold and brown could be the perfect match for a luxe fall wedding.
Consider the season
As you can see, the season will often have an effect on which theme best suits your big day. Some brides even opt to make the season itself the theme. For instance, a fall wedding overflowing with rich, fall colors and a lovely outdoorsy feeling, or a snowy, wintery wedding with a stunning icy background and a winter-warming feast following your vows.
Don’t forget about your budget
If you are keen to take your theme over the top, then don’t forget about your budget. Set your budget long before you settle on a theme to avoid disappointment and always strive to plan within your means.
Rope in the groom
Grooms tend to have very little to do with the wedding planning, but it is important to remember that it is his special day too. As such, you might want to consult with him before you plan a wedding full of pink and purple accents or a Barbie and Ken theme.
Ultimately, stay true to who you are as a couple, and your theme is guaranteed to be a hit since it’s authentic. Here’s to the wedding of your dreams and many more happy years together.
