Your wedding will be, in all likelihood, the biggest party you ever throw. All of the important people in your life will be in attendance, and it is going to be a night that you will remember for the rest of your life. With those points in mind, it is important that you take the time to think through all of the details that need to come together in order to make the event a great one. Whether you plan on throwing a huge theme wedding party with hundreds of guests, or just a small gathering of 50 people or less, it is never too early to get started planning the big day.
To help your wedding stand out from the rest, you may want to consider using a theme to direct all of your décor, food, and wardrobe selections. Here are just some of the most popular wedding theme ideas being used by brides and grooms to create a memorable event!
Of course, to execute this theme successfully, you should probably be holding your wedding somewhere near the beach. However, even if you aren’t on the coast, you could set up a beach-vibe for your event by using decorations and food/drink selections that are synonymous with a day at the beach. Since the beach is a casual setting, you will likely want to make choices for the wedding as a whole that lead it to being more of a casual event. For instance, you could request that your guests dress casually, and you could use invitations that speak to a relaxed atmosphere.
Using a rustic décor for a wedding is one of the most popular trends in recent years, as this is a theme that is suitable for a number of different venues. Specifically, if you are getting married outside, a rustic décor could be just the thing to bring the whole event together. With this theme, you could take a slightly more formal approach than if you went with the beach option, but it will still make sense for the overall tone to be something less than formal. Wooden chairs and large glass jars are frequently seen within a rustic décor.
For the couple who shares a passion for a specific sport, a wedding is a great opportunity to tie in that hobby to your relationship. Going with a sports theme is only going to make sense if both the bride and groom share a love for that sport – you don’t want to make the wedding completely about something that only one of you truly appreciates. However, if both people are in favor of the idea, using a sports theme could be a fun way to engage your guests and show off a part of your personality.
This is another one of the popular options that has gained momentum in recent years. Simply put, a vintage wedding is one that looks back to traditional design and wardrobe choices to create a classic setting. Rather than embracing some of the modern twists that have made their way into weddings, using a vintage theme will dictate that you go ‘back in time’ to recreate the feeling that would have been had in weddings from decades ago.
You don’t have to pick a theme for your wedding. You can certainly have a great event simply by making decisions on things like food, décor, and wardrobe one at a time, each independent of the other. However, if you would like to use a theme to bring everything together, the ideas above should help you to get started. Remember, the choices you make should reflect you and your future spouse, and they should allow for everyone at the event to have a great time.
