Wedding Theme

A wedding theme is something little girls dream of before they know the term! Brides, you probably have your dream day picked out so let us help you by providing a few trending wedding themes of 2017.

The first two themes go hand in hand and can overlap. A garden theme and greenery theme compliment each other very nicely! Mother Nature is filled with gorgeous flowers for pops of color. Greenery can mean anything from tree branches to long wreaths on the tables. A garden wedding theme is romantic and lush. If you’re a nature girl you can go crazy with the decorations due to the vast amount of options available. Drape flowers on tables, twine vines in the chandeliers or use sprigs to accent your cake!

Another popular wedding theme we are seeing is vintage everything!

Vintage doesn’t have to mean old and dusty. It can be fresh and full of great memories. You can use heirlooms if they are important to you. Vintage can also mean just the color palette – soft pastels, shades of brown and blue. Antique tea sets are fabulous for bridal showers or for your guests at the reception. A vintage wedding theme is fun because you can incorporate things you pick up at a flea market and no one will even know it cost you $1.00! You can use old suitcases as make shift tables. Another cute idea is to use old keys as card holders!

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!

Perfect Palette

Choosing the Picture Perfect Palette
Aubergine. Blush. Aqua. Charcoal. Apricot. Navy. So many colors so little time. Determining the colors of your
wedding palette play into much more than one would assume. As we’ve discussed before, a theme carries throughout a wedding day, and your color palette should as well. So, what things should you consider when choosing a perfect palette for your wedding day? We have a few ideas!
Time of Year
It’s important to consider the season when choosing wedding colors. For example, would you pick hot pink and lush
green in the dead of winter? Or how about a burnt orange and mocha during spring? That isn’t to say you can’t do these things but it is helpful to have a perfect palette to blend things together.  This doesn’t mean you’re stuck with prissy pinks or greens just because it’s spring, but you can consider Mother Nature as a helper that can somewhat dictate the perfect palette.

 

Perfect Combo
It’s nice to consider colors that you both find equally pleasing. Keep in mind your palette can be many more than just
two or three. Choosing shades that lift your mood and you are drawn to make the most sense. Trust your gut!
Consider the setting
Look at the colors your venue has. Do you absolutely love the gold embellishments on the door handles or chandeliers? Using metallic colors like gold, champagne,etc will bring these adornments out. If your venue has
white and black carpeting, fixtures, etc keeping with that theme and adding pops of color such as red, purple, pink, or any other inspirational shade!
Create an Inspiration Board
A color wheel or picking out images that you find inspirational can be your first step to helping guide you through
picking the perfect palette. There are many tools out there that can help including:
Finding the right balance and complimentary colors is what to keep in mind. If color matching isn’t your thing, then you can always consult a wedding coordinator or stylist. Friends are always a helpful sounding board as well! They can help you choose your perfect palette for your wedding day!

How to Choose a Wedding Theme

The modern bride and groom want a wedding that is unique and personalized. They don’t want a traditional, cookie-cutter wedding that has been done over and over again. So how do you create a personalized, one-of-a-kind wedding? One solution is to create a unique wedding theme. This overarching concept can be included in all of the wedding details to create an event that showcases the couple’s personalities, interests, and relationship.

How Do You Choose a Wedding Theme?

Choosing a theme can be difficult. Sometime couples have a hard time coming up with an idea. They feel trapped by the conventional wedding standards, and they need to do some brainstorming. Other couples have too many ideas and need to pick the theme that is most appropriate for their wedding. Here are some ideas for both types of couples.

Brainstorming Ideas

Brainstorming is a technique that we are often taught in school. It is usually used to generate ideas for various projects, so it is a perfect way to begin thinking about wedding themes. After all, your wedding is one big project. There is no right way to brainstorm. You may choose to create lists and charts, or you can simply discuss the topic with friends and family members (and of course, your fiancé) until you come up with a good idea. Here are a few questions to ask yourself when brainstorming.

What are your interests?

How would you describe your personality?

Are there any places that are important to you and your fiancé?

How would you describe the mood of your ideal wedding?

As you begin to answer these questions, let the answers guide you to other questions. The perfect idea may be something that you would have never expected, so don’t censure yourself. Just let the ideas flow.

Choosing the Theme

Now that you have developed a bunch of ideas, you must choose which theme to use. Some weddings incorporate more than one theme, but be careful. If your themes clash, your wedding will seem chaotic and disorganized. You want the theme to create a seamless, personalized event rather than a smorgasbord of all your interests. Here are a few more questions to ask yourself.

Is this theme appropriate for the venue and season?

Does the theme fit with the tone of our wedding?

Does the theme showcase our personalities, interests, and/or relationship?

Does my fiancé like the idea?

Does the idea make me excited to begin planning the wedding?

If you answered yes to the above questions, you have probably found the perfect wedding theme. Happy wedding planning!
