One of the hardest aspects of planning a wedding is deciding the best wedding theme to be incorporated into the big day. While you don’t need a wedding theme, having one can take your big day from typical to terrific with just a little extra planning. Here are some wedding themes you should consider.
A rustic theme is a perfect way to let your guests escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life so they can have a taste of the simplicity that farm life offers. You don’t have to live on a farm to adopt this theme as string lights, oak beams, mason jars, and bales of hay contribute to its simple and homey vibe. You could even incorporate country-western cake elements like cowboy boots or horseshoes.
Whether you feel you should have been born in another era or you just want to draw inspiration from the past decade, choosing a vintage wedding is the perfect way to connect to a decade or century. You can go back in time to hold any type of wedding including ancient Greece, the eighteenth century, the 70s, 80s, 90s, and more. Just sprinkle antique touches and other heirloom details throughout your attire and décor to exemplify a vintage-finished wedding.
If you’re a huge fan of the seaside or you just want a destination wedding, a beach theme is a great idea because it merges a destination and a season. When it comes to color for your décor, think blue and white, and the sun and sands will tie it all together. Pristine waters, the smell of the salt hair, and the feel of fresh sea breeze on your cheeks as you get married to the love of your life – is there anything better than that?
If you and your partner love to travel as much as you love each other, incorporate a creative travel theme to bring a shared sense of wanderlust to life at your wedding. Think weddings on cliffs, overlooking mountains, waterfalls, and more. You could even get creative with your invitations (like pretend passports).
If you’ve always liked the idea of an outdoor wedding, a garden theme could be the way to go. Spring and summer are the best seasons to host this kind of wedding, with flowers and lush vegetation being at the heart of your day. If you don’t own a garden, you could easily ask a friend or family to donate a potted land so you can exchange your vows in a natural setting.
If you’ve read to this point and you’re yet to pick a theme, consider opting for a bohemian-themed wedding. With flower tiaras, long flowing gowns, oriental rugs, patterned cushions and more, the boho style has a way of remaining chic with minimal effort.
If none of the above speaks to you, you can combine any of the themes to create your own unique wedding theme.
