There are several ways to decide on a theme, even if it’s simply
easy and laidback. However, there are considerations to think about before
settling on a final decision, such as how your guests will enjoy it and
how it will reflect your personal style. Take your
wedding venue into account, as well, because it needs to showcase your theme.
Think About Your Personality as a Couple
Are you the quirky, sarcastic couple, or are you both headstrong and focused
A-types? Your wedding theme should represent you as a couple. Even if
you are complete opposites, you can still create a cohesive theme. You
don’t need to put a name to it, but both of you can be represented
in the design and decorations. You simply have to think outside the box
and consult your wedding venue for ideas.
Pick Your Favorite Places and Moods
Another way to help you choose a wedding theme is based on your favorite
destination spots or moments in history. Turn your wedding reception venue
into a tropical paradise or Old World Paris. Drape gauzy curtains over
the walls and create an Arabian Nights fantasy; or bring in mementos and
memorabilia from your favorite theme parks, movies, or books. The options
are endless when you begin to branch out with your creativity.
Consider How Your Wedding Pictures Will Look
Don’t forget that you will have pictures of your wedding to last
a lifetime. Pick your theme with the future in mind. Will you hate that
bright yellow dress you made your bridesmaids wear because you wanted
a spring theme? There are several themes, colors, and moods that are timeless,
so consult with your future spouse and wedding planner on how to plan
a wedding theme that will last through the ages.
