Planning a wedding is a daunting task, to say the least. The challenge comes down to making your wedding stand out from the crowd – how do you create a memorable event without straying too far from tradition? One option is to employ the use of a theme. By picking out a theme that both you and your spouse-to-be can appreciate, you will give your guests something to remember for years to come.
Below you will find three theme wedding ideas to consider as you are working on the planning of your upcoming wedding. Congratulations and good luck!
#1 – A Country Theme
For those who are particular patriotic, the idea of a country-based theme for your wedding could make a lot of sense. Rather than going in the ‘horse-and-cowboy’ direction, this kind of theme is actually all about everything that is quintessentially American. You might fill the space with colorful flowers, while holding the ceremony in the classic little white church. Of course, the country theme would play perfectly outside on a warm summer evening, as long as the weather allows for such an event. You and the rest of the wedding party can still dress up in the tradition of American weddings, but you will likely want to keep the dresses and tuxes relatively simple and classic. There is a lot of room to work with inside of this theme, so you can plan an event which is based around a theme yet is still personal and meaningful to you.
#2 – A Christmas Theme
Millions of people absolutely love the holiday season. If you wait all year for Christmas to roll around, it might be a wise choice to incorporate Christmas into your wedding planning. Obviously, this wouldn’t really make much sense in the middle of summer, so only those getting married in the winter months should take on this idea. With so many decorations already available for Christmas events, it should be no problem at all to decorate your space in the spirit of the holidays. In fact, you might be able to rent a space which is already somewhat decorated for Christmas if you are getting married in December. By tying in red and green throughout the décor and even the clothing, you can make your wedding all about Christmas from start to finish.
#3 – A Renaissance Theme
If you have a strong passion for history, especially European history, you may be tempted to opt for a Renaissance theme. Anyone who hopes to go in this direction is going to want to do a bit of research before getting started in order to learn as much about this period of history as possible. It is going to take a bit more work to locate decorations and other pieces for this theme than it will with a Christmas theme, for instance, but it certainly can be done. Also, since this theme is not as popular as others, you are very likely to make a lasting impression on your guests.
