How To Choose The Perfect Wedding Theme

There are plenty of reasons we have to be boring these days.

Corporate meetings, professional workplaces, wider family gatherings just to name a few. But luckily, expectations have well and truly changed and you don’t have to be boring at your wedding.

In fact, as it is your day, you can pretty much do whatever you want.

Having a theme for your wedding is a perfect way to showcase your personalities and the things you love the most.

Themed weddings can add a bit of interest and atmosphere to the occasion.

It is actually traditional weddings that can be seen as a bit cliché these days. Whereas, themed weddings can set you and your partner apart from the crowd.

So, if you are looking for a unique take on your marriage, this is the article for you!

How To Choose The Perfect Wedding Theme

What Is A Wedding Theme?

If you are choosing a theme for your wedding, it gives you a centre point to focus all of the different components of your day around.

Themes can be as simple as a combination of colours or embodying a hobby, right through to elaborate costuming and props. It’s your day so you get to go as big or as bold as you want to.

The theme should really be centred about something you and your fiance love. It is designed to make an already special day even more special.

How Do You Start?

Coming up with a theme can be easy if you both have something you are really passionate about. If you don’t instantly have the perfect idea, then that’s alright too.

It is important to remember that the day is about you both, so it should be a theme that you are both comfortable with. Speaking with your partner about your common interests and ideas is a great way of coming up with (and even merging) different ideas.

These can be from popular culture - like movies, music, shows or books you both enjoy. Blending bits of pop culture or other interests can also be a fun and unique way to showcase your love. It will create an awesome atmosphere for you and your guests and give everyone a great wedding to remember.

What Makes A Wedding Theme Perfect?

Of course, you and your partner are going to want the ‘perfect’ theme for your big day.

While this is entirely subjective, it’s also important to find the right one for you both. Maybe play off each other’s interests, hobbies or personalities. If you are fun and vibrant, maybe choose a colourful and bright colour scheme to match. If you and your partner are more reserved and interested in quiet activities, choose an elegant but modest venue design to complement these traits.

You have an array of themes to choose from, too. Theme planning might seem daunting, but the world is your oyster. Theme ideas stretch as far as your imagination does!

Carrying Your Theme Through

If you are going to embrace a theme, then you want to make sure it is woven into all the aspects of your special day. That doesn’t just mean decorating the venue or picking an on point dress.
