Having a themed wedding is becoming a popular trend and it can help to make every aspect of the day fit together perfectly. Your wedding theme can be extravagant like the Alice in Wonderland themed pictured above or it can be subtle… but having a theme is a great idea no matter your taste or style. Here are a few fun wedding ideas that are easy to make unique and your own.
The rustic wedding theme is one of the most popular themes of 2015. With mason jars, lace burlap, and handmade wooden decor, it is beautiful yet simple. Most rustic themes are complimented by soft color choices like blush, cream, or ivory, but this doesn’t mean a splash of color can’t be incorporated.
The vintage wedding theme is one that never goes out of style. It is timeless and elegant and can fit any budget. Incorporating antique jewelry, table accessories, furniture, old photos, and other classy decor can make your wedding stand out from the rest. It is easy to go bold with dark make-up and a statement veil as a vintage bride.
The country wedding theme can be similar to the rustic look, but there are so many fun things you can add. Having your reception in a beautiful old barn is a must and it is easy to decorate with string lighting and lanterns. You can incorporate your country roots into your dressy attire with cowboy boots along with fun farm accessories like hay bales, wagon wheels, and wooden tables and chairs. This makes for a cozy wedding atmosphere for everyone out on the farm.
Whether you are traveling to far destinations or having a beach wedding near you, this theme is always a simple yet beautiful choice. Sunrise or sunset ceremonies are a breathtaking way to say “I do” by the water while also keeping cool. Wedding dresses are usually simple and flow nicely in the outdoor setting. You can decorate with whites and blush colors and it is easy to add a bright accent color with flowers.
A newer theme becoming popular is the woodland or forest wedding theme. Having your ceremony and even your reception outdoors and surrounded by nature will be an unforgettable and unique setting for you and your guests. Brides tend to go with a bohemian look with flower crowns and lacy dresses. Having wild flowers in your bouquet and scattered among your guests adds a natural yet stunning touch to your woodland wedding.
Who doesn’t love a theme with a little bit (or a lot) of sparkle! Having a glam wedding theme can be done using bold accents of gold, silver, or sparkles. You can glam up your table centerpieces, your shoes, your bridesmaids, and even your cake. Using beaded accessories and dramatic lighting will make all the difference for a bold theme like this.
Wedding themes are a great way to add your own personal style into all of the aspects of your big day. Pinpointing your perfect day can be made easy with the multiple resources available to brides.
