Planning Wedding Themes

Wedding themes are an exciting part of planning. All the designs at your wedding venue should be staged to tell your love story with the flowers, colors and décor. We have a few ideas to help you choose and create wedding themes.

Choosing Wedding Theme

Sometimes, choosing wedding themes can be more of a challenge than creating them. Too many options can be overwhelming. While the wedding is commonly thought of as the bride’s day, it is important to realize this day is made for two. Work together as a team to incorporate elements that are unique to your relationship. Your wedding venue could recreate a favorite vacation spot or the location of your first date. Your theme can be influenced by the season or a motion picture. You can create a rustic vibe or a sophisticated black tie affair. The first step is to explore design options for wedding themes with your venue and narrow it down to the most meaningful one.

Just Like the Fairy Tale

This is your fairy tale, not the fairy tale. Let your theme inspire your designs. Your wedding day should be unlike anything done before. There is more than one way to tell a Cinderella story. Wedding themes should be obvious, but not exact. Your theme will be a concept, rather than a replication. Never create expectations for a replica. Think about your favorite books, movies, significant locations or other common interests, and create your rendition of the magical affair. Make this day your unique version of the fairy tale.

Bringing Wedding Themes to Life

Envision whimsical and romantic wedding themes that tell your love story. Think of ways to create the experience with the cuisine, entertainment, cake, décor, wedding favors, invitations and place cards. Whether you are looking for obvious or subtle, make it personal and keep it significant to your relationship. This is your theme. Think about the concept in a way that has never been done before. Booking an all-inclusive wedding venue that includes the furnishings, designs and professional wedding designers can help you easily bring the theme to life while saving thousands in the process.

Make a List

Create a small list of ideas on your journey. Wedding themes have a color scheme. Find your base color and two accent colors that clearly identify your inspiration. Your list should include the type and color of wedding attire, cake design, décor ideas, types of flowers, ideas for invitations and table décor. Even the way you make your grand exit will make a statement. Your wedding cake is one of the easiest and most creative ways to incorporate wedding themes. Catering is an unforgettable part of every wedding. Create a menu with foods that fit the concept. Think about your ideas and write them down.

Designing Invitations

Wedding themes influence the invitations and other materials. Choose the color palette, fonts, style and embellishments with your theme in mind. If you require a high level of customization, you might consider working with a boutique stationer. If you desire a variety of pre-designed materials, you might consider larger invitation stores. This paperless option for designing your paper allows you to design and view proofs instantly online. If you have a unique vision, seek the help of a graphic designer. You will have the paper, envelops, fonts, graphics and inserts to consider. Digital wedding invitations are becoming a trend, and offer unique ways to convey your message.
