How to choose a wedding theme?

You've probably seen a wide variety of destination wedding themes while looking for ideas or attending weddings. Have you ever stopped to consider the inspiration behind these various styles? We believe there should be more to a wedding theme than just following the latest fashion. The most important thing is that the wedding theme truly represents who you are as a couple. Furthermore, a wedding motif should be able to draw together in harmony every facet of a wedding, from the location to the smallest details.

Close your eyes and picture your wedding day if you haven't settled on a theme. Just how does it appear? When they go in the door, how do people feel? To what effect do you hope this party will put your guests? Pose these thoughts to yourself and your future spouse to help you visualise your ideal wedding.

First things first: decide on a wedding theme before you get too deep into other aspects of planning. This is the overarching theme of your wedding day, thus it should be decided upon before the finer aspects are planned. There is a world of difference between rustic-chic and ultra-modern, so it's important to get down with your future spouse and wedding planner to talk about your vision. Don't forget to inform your service providers of this, as they will be important in assisting you in your search for the ideal wedding attire, accessories, and adornments.

Now, many of us aren't looking for a conventional topic. If your wedding is in the winter, you can certainly have a winter wedding without making it look like the North Pole (unless you want to, of course!). However, you'll need a plan for how you'd like your wedding to unfold. Choose a theme for your wedding and we promise you won't have to agonise over nearly as many decisions. Everything at your wedding, from the invitations to the drinks to the décor, should adhere to the wedding's theme so that attendees have a cohesive experience and remember your wedding fondly. You can follow these directions to get there:

The Location Of Your Wedding

The location of your wedding will have significant symbolic meaning. It's not appropriate to hold a wedding with a beach or tropical theme in a church. Or, perhaps a seaside wedding with a rustic motif. Getting what we're trying to say? You can get a feel for the vibe and atmosphere of the wedding by picking the location. To that end, choose a location depending on how it makes you feel. It will add to the ambience of your wedding whether you hold it in a vineyard, on the beach, or in a more traditional chapel.

The State Of Mind Between You And Your Significant Other

Having a wedding with a winter wonderland theme is pointless if the bride or groom is not fond of the cold. Or, if you'd prefer to avoid the sand, a wedding with a beach theme. Have you figured out where we're going with this? When trying to decide on a wedding theme, you and your future spouse should turn inward to your shared interests and the nature of your relationship. Attempt to put into words how you feel the two of you complement one another. Perhaps you and your partner are avid adventurers or peace seekers. As a result of your conversation, you have a clearer picture of the kind of setting and atmosphere you'd like to create for your big day.

Choosing A Wedding Theme Might Be Difficult  : Here Are Some Suggestions.

Think About Where You'll Be Holding Your Event.

The location of the wedding should serve as a starting point for the planning process. You should respect the individuality of each location's aesthetic rather than trying to change it. If you want to have a wedding with a specific theme, taking notes on the space's colours and atmosphere will help. Do you mean a Toronto loft with an industrial chic aesthetic? Get some of that contemporary copper tableware and have the bartender make some Moscow mules. Maybe it's a quaint mountain lodge in the mountains near Vancouver. Look for some additional touches of homeliness to add to its appeal.

Considering the time of year

You've probably set the date for the wedding and should have some idea of what to expect from the climate at this time. Jewel-toned colour palettes, dresses with a few more garments (or the addition of a lovely stole or shawl), and wintery flowers are usual during snowier seasons. If you're going for a beach wedding, you can take advantage of pastels palettes, strapless gowns and a greater selection of flowers. You can, of course, go against the grain and do whatever you like, but it couldn't hurt to consider the time of year to help you come up with a unique wedding theme.

Examine your sense of fashion.

Pinterest can be helpful, but you do not need to travel far to figure out your preferences. Get ready by pulling out some of your most cherished garments from your closet. How about sophisticated Coco Chanel-worthy pieces or easygoing basics? If you tend to dress more casually than the average person, then a large ballroom wedding isn't for you. Instead, perhaps a modest ceremony at a local brewery might be more your style. On the other hand, if you want to go all out, why not have a black-tie event?

It's best to begin within.

Also, while we're on the subject of dwellings, take stock of your nursery's furnishings. If you've decorated your home in a certain theme, chances are you're a fan of that aesthetic. Gather some of your favourite home goods in photographs and compare and contrast. If you're having trouble fitting the pieces together, your wedding planner is available to assist you.

Select a handful of must-have items

Use the details that you've previously decided on for your wedding as a guide. You may have already purchased your ideal lacey boho dress and be obsessing over the naked wedding cake displayed at your neighbourhood bakery. Looks like you're planning a wedding with the increasingly popular rustic theme. Could it be that you keep thinking about Kim and Kanye's floral wall and Balmain dresses? It's likely that you'll have a wedding as extravagant as the Kardashians'.

When exactly do you plan to tie the knot?

What time of year are you planning to get married? This may not seem important, but it is crucial.

If your wedding is in the winter, you can choose decorations and music that reflect the season. Colors like emerald green and deep burgundy are perfect for a winter wedding since they are so rich and dramatic.

You might also have a traditional, luxurious theme for your wedding, or you could simply have a winter wedding.

In contrast, a wedding in the summer calls for a casual, beachy atmosphere, while a spring wedding calls for a more elegant affair with pastel colours, beautiful bouquets including berries, and garden settings.

Where Exactly Are You Going To Have Your Wedding?

Don't just pick colours at random; give some thought to the setting. Do you want your ceremony colours to be black and white since your reception will be held in a dark place like a nightclub? No one will be able to make out the finer points.

Instead, you should take your cues for the wedding theme and decor from the location itself. How close to the shore is it? In that case, I recommend a wedding with a beachy theme and colours like blue, white, and silver.

Have you ever considered getting married in a garden? Maybe something tropical like a jungle? Think about what elements of nature might provide a nice backdrop for your wedding and let them inspire your theme.

What Kind Of Ambience Are You Hoping To Create?

The importance of this consideration cannot be overstated. Can you both be described as chill? If that's the case, you guys would fit right in with a chill atmosphere. Bohemian and beachy wedding themes, in particular, tend to foster an atmosphere of easygoing spontaneity. Can you see how this works to create a mental image?

On the other hand, perhaps you're envisioning a wedding with a glitzy, festive atmosphere. how about a party with a lot of people, delicious food, lively music, beautiful flowers, and lots of dancing? Perhaps an Art Deco wedding theme with glitzy touches inspired of The Great Gatsby would be an ideal choice?

Think on the vibe you want to convey to your guests with the theme and how you want to feel yourself during the party.

What colour do you prefer?

Picking a primary wedding colour will help you zero in on a general concept for the big day.

Consider some of your prefered hues and the wedding themes that commonly feature them. White, gold, silver, and black are just few of the traditional and luxurious wedding colours.

Elegant modern weddings frequently feature tones like navy blue and silver.

If you've always wanted a wedding with a purple theme but are unable to find a violet that works, choose a lavender that leans more towards pastel.

Make An Inspiration Board

Making a "mood board" with photographs that you like is another fantastic method to zero in on the specifics of the wedding's theme. Pinterest, Instagram, and the Easy Weddings inspiration boards are all good places to look for pictures to use as ideas.

Gather your favourite photographs and pin them to a large cardboard piece (or make a digital mood board if you're a Photoshop master.) By viewing the collection as a whole, you can better understand the aesthetic preferences that have led you to this point.

Perhaps you've noticed that the majority of your favourite images share a common theme, such as a focus on silver or gold or a particular mood or aesthetic.

Where did you get your dress?

Many brides pick their wedding theme and venue before shopping for their dress. If you're the other type of bride, on the other hand, let your dress style dictate your big day's aesthetic.

Think on the aesthetic and the elements of the dress if you have already chosen it or if you know what kind of dress you want. Does it have a soft and enchanting quality? (A must-have for a chic bohemian nuptial celebration.) Does it have a traditional look, or is it sleek and contemporary? Maybe it's a princess-worthy ballgown with all the trimmings?

If you're having trouble deciding on a wedding theme, let your dress serve as inspiration.

Allow the Season to Motivate You

Even if the season doesn't seem to fit with the overall subject, it should be taken into account. The presence of snow, for instance, could detract from a wedding with a beach theme. In a similar vein, an outdoor summer black-tie event may not be as glamorous as it otherwise would be during the cooler months.

The time of year in which your wedding will take place is another factor to consider when coming up with a concept for the big day. The season itself might serve as a central motif. You can get more motivation by thinking about the seasonal subtleties.

Rich burgundy tones and autumnal leaves are a winning colour combination for a spectacular Autumn wedding. White and glitter look beautiful against the snowy backdrop of a winter wedding. Colors like emerald green and scarlet crimson can create a festive atmosphere. For a wedding in the summer, consider a beach or nautical theme, while a wedding in the spring could have pastels and colourful flowers.

You Should Think About the Dress Code

Is there a particular dress code you'd like your guests to follow at your wedding? Whether or not it fits in with the theme of the wedding might have an effect on the mood you want to create for the big day.

By requesting that guests wear black tie attire, you can ensure that the mood at your event is sophisticated and refined. Think about how the event's many themes will influence the dress code. If you're having a DIY, rustic wedding but everyone's expected to wear black tie, the resulting images can be a little awkward.

Consider another scenario: a wedding with a princess or classic Hollywood flair. Therefore, a strict formal attire requirement is warranted to prevent guests from looking and feeling out of place.

Think about your dynamic as a pair while setting a clothing code. Do you prefer to take life easy, or do you usually dress to impress? Take a look at your shared sense of style to help you decide on a theme that reflects the two of you perfectly.

Avoid the Cliché in Favor of the Unique

There is a plethora of resources available to help you plan your wedding, but it's easy to get lost in the noise or be swept up in the latest trends. Instead of having a wedding that seems like it was plagiarised from Pinterest, you may make it unique by adding personal touches.

Try to find methods to incorporate you and your partner's true interests in the subject. Subtly incorporating elements from the 1920s (or your prefered era) into your design shows your appreciation for the era. Is your future spouse a sports fan? Add trophy-inspired centrepieces on the tables for a touch of their interests as well. It's not necessary to go crazy, but including personal touches that reflect your relationship will make the event stand out.

Paying homage to your family or culture is another method to add a touch of your individuality to the wedding. Permit yourself to infuse a contemporary spin on elements of your heritage. You can honour each other's heritage in a way that is truly special to the two of you while still creating something truly original.

Consider out these Boston-inspired motif ideas to include elements of your favourite city into the celebration.

Don't be shy about asking for assistance if event planning isn't your forte. If you're having trouble visualising your wedding's aesthetic, poll your friends and family on what they imagine or how they think you want the day to feel. They might be familiar enough with you to offer suggestions about how your wedding could go.

While you probably wouldn't want them to take over completely, hearing their input can help you refine your wedding day vision. It's a plus if you have a lot of inventive friends and family members. If you're having trouble putting a label on your style, getting feedback from someone who has a good eye for such things could be quite helpful.

Keep in mind that you may always hire a wedding planner to handle all of this for you. A professional wedding planner will have a plethora of options at their disposal to personalise the event to your tastes. They should enquire as to the mood you hope to achieve for your wedding. They may provide you concrete examples to follow and point you in the right direction based on what they know about you and your partner's capabilities.

The good news is that there are experts whose job it is to make your special day seem great, so you won't have to worry about coming up with original ideas.

Follow Your Hearts' Desires

Keep in mind that this day is about the two of you and celebrating your love and your shared future. It's normal to be overwhelmed by the magnitude of it all at the outset, but rest assured that as long as you're being genuine and making decisions that bring you joy, your wedding day will be one for the ages.

Make sure you include your significant other in the planning process by talking to them about the various choices you'll need to make. You want your special day to be a true representation of the two of you.

The best piece of advise we can give you when arranging a wedding is to not worry about what other people may say or do. You want to be able to recall the day with nothing but positive emotions, thoughts, and memories of the wonderful time you had with the people you love.

Modern weddings showcase a fresh, fashion-forward aesthetic. Whether minimalist or avant garde, this wedding style is high on style. Modern weddings are sleek, sophisticated, and refined, typically using a monochromatic color palette, on-trend florals or foliage, geometric lines, and pared-down décor.

There are no hard and fast rules so in reality a bride does not have to stick to any one theme. A couple can combine wedding themes or create something new all together that makes the day unique to them.

Delicate white florals, plenty of lush greenery, light linens, and minimal decor: These tried and true wedding details will never go out of style. And if you're a couple that prefers timelessness over trends, we suggest planning your ceremony and reception in a classic wedding style.

Stick To What You Love . Do you prefer clean lines or bold patterns? Is your style more rustic or modern? Did you see something at a friend's wedding that you loved? Sometimes considering the things that you love can help you come up with a specific vibe or aesthetic.
