Wedding Theme

How Important is a Wedding Theme?
To answer the question in the title; in one world- very, very important! The theme of your wedding pretty much dictates a lot of your day. It’s based on what type of couple you truly are–traditional versus non-traditional. Choosing a preppy theme versus a Halloween party versus a British theme will set the tone for the entire day.
When searching for wedding ideas and wedding inspiration, you’ll be faced with seemingly endless options.Having a wedding theme, however, will allow you to edit out things that don’t work. Most people don’t see a need for a wedding theme. Of course, the theme for any wedding is “marriage.” However, when all the little planning details start to come together, you should have some cohesion to everything.
Themes are meant to be carried out throughout everything in your wedding from your invites to your linens. Are you rustic chic or modern and cutting edge? Blurring the line is fine, but setting the tone also sets the tone for your guests. You would not want your friends and family to show up to an event dressed inappropriately or not having some kind of expectations when they walk into the event.
As mentioned above, if you were to choose a Halloween themed wedding and you wanted your guests to dress up in costumes that expectation needs to be vocalized. Do not ever assume that your guests will just know to dress like Superman or on the other hand, for a black tie event. It is in your best interest to be clear about expectations. If you find that you cannot figure out the theme of your wedding, go peruse wedding websites such as Style Me Pretty, Engaged& Inspired and others to find some styles that suit your taste. Understanding your likes and dislikes is the first of many choices you are faced with.

Golf Wedding

Spring is here and maybe you’re thinking of a golf wedding theme! The turf is green, the clubhouses are gorgeous and the service is excellent.

Do your parents belong to the local country club? If so, you might be able to reap some major benefits on your bottom line and extras if you book your big day there. Some country clubs offer discounts for members and can really give you a bang for your buck.
Most country clubs have golf courses included on the premises. Why not include that theme into your wedding day?From argyle socks to golf ball décor, you can never go wrong with this uber preppy style! Here are a few ways to incorporate a golf wedding into your theme:
1) The Attire
 We wouldn’t suggest the bride do too much to immerse her look in the golfing theme; however, the guys are fair game. From sporty tweeds to golf ball inspired cuff links, these are just a few ways to incorporate the look and feel of the game.
2) The cake
Petite golf ball cakes or mini donut balls are a cute way to pay homage to the game. If you don’t want it to be your main wedding cake, suggest to your sweetie a“groom’s cake”to have a little more fun with your theme.
3) Grand Entrance / Exit
You can’t forget the golf cart! This could be a unique way tobring the bride to the ceremony spot. Not crazy about that idea? What about your getaway vehicle? The wedding party can decorate the cart in a fun fashion as your private mobile post ceremony.
4) The Décor
Your décor can sprinkle in as much golf-y goodness, from“here comes the bride” flags that mimic the flags on the
course, prints inspired by golf wear, to the wedding favors. Colors to think about incorporating into your palette arebold reds, yellow, green, and even navy blue. Pew bows could have small round white flower balls attachedto themor use golf flags on each pew. The bridal bouquet should be all white to resemble a golf ball. Use indoor/outdoor grass/carpeting as an isle runner. Keep a supply of mini-pencils handy for your guests to send youtheir best wishes in your guest book. Attach tees to your unity candle to complement the links feel as you seal your wedding vows for now and for always. However, if your wedding is actually taking place on a golf course, consider sealing your vows with a shot for the hole together!
5) Program
Ever think of putting a little twist on your wedding program? Your program can mimic a golf score card. Little details
like this keep your golf wedding theme consistent while having a little fun!
