Your wedding theme will make or break your big day. You have to consider everything from the amount of decorations you include, your chosen colour scheme and even an inspiration behind an idea. We’re therefore offering a variety tips to help you pick the perfect wedding theme.
Make it personal
The key to picking a perfect wedding theme is to make it very personal. Do you and your partner share a similar interest? If you’re both proud patriots, you could always opt for a theme inspired by your home country. For example, a British wedding could include everything from beautiful roses, jam and cream scones and even a Rolls Royce for a wedding car.
If you both love nothing more than walking hand-in-hand along the beach, you could select a nautical theme, using lighthouses and seashells for table decorations. Maybe you could consider a theme for how and where you both met.
Pick the perfect colour
On top of picking a theme, you will also need to select the right colour for your wedding day. For example, if you chose a beach-themed wedding, you would not want to dress your bridesmaids in bright pink dresses. You would most likely opt for pale blues or aqua shades. Think about the colours that best complement your theme choice, and if you don’t like the colour then it might be time to change the theme.
How to use your wedding theme
There is a time and a place for your chosen theme, as you probably wouldn’t want your theme choice to impact on the bride’s dress or groom’s suit too much.
Your theme will provide the backdrop to your wedding day, so it should be used in:
- Wedding programs
- Wedding cake
- Wedding favours
- Place cards
- Table numbers
Be sure to discuss your wedding theme choices with your partner before you make any purchases, and don’t be afraid to ask your loved ones’ opinion before the big day.
You may also run it past your wedding photographer to find out how to make the most of your wedding photos.
Once you’ve settled on a theme, the fun can begin.
