At first, coming up with a theme for your wedding may seem like an incredibly daunting task. After all, the most important day of your life deserves to be done properly. Here are some wedding theme ideas to help you narrow it down.
Beach – A popular modern wedding theme is the beach theme, which has grown exponentially with ease of travel around the world. This could be in a hot, tropical country on the other side of the world or it could be on the beaches at home. The idea of getting married out under the open sky with the sound of ocean waves in the background is very appealing, but you should be aware of weather conditions if you’re hosting the wedding at home or in a more temperate country.
Vintage – Over the past few years, there’s been a large rise in the popularity of vintage themes. These aren’t just at weddings, but all kinds of event. The 1950s is a very distinctive era, with large and streamlined cars, the emergence of rock and roll music, and evolving fashion tastes. For a 1950s wedding, you could swap out the limousine for a late 1950s American car.
Hollywood – In terms of Hollywood themes, you could think of having people dressed up in fancy dress, or as famous characters. The main feature of a Hollywood themed wedding is grandeur and opulence. You want to try and make the event as swanky as possible.
Medieval theme – This is a bit more of an eccentric theme. If you’re the sort of person who enjoys Game of Thrones, this is the wedding theme for you. Think long halls and animal furs, with an extra-long dining table and a roaring fireplace. Perhaps you could incorporate crowns for the bride and groom. Again, costume is an important part of the theme.
Summer/Winter colour schemes – The idea behind this is to theme your wedding around the season it takes place in. If it’s a winter wedding, try to use cold and icy colours, blues and whites for example. A summer wedding could be full of rich colours and flowers, or an autumn wedding could have the floor covered in gold and brown leaves.
Classic church hall theme – This is the theme that everybody thinks of when they imagine a wedding. It could be simple or it could be grand, that’s up to you.
