Now that you’ve said yes, picked a date and chosen a venue, you may be looking at themed weddings done right. Here at A Bargain Minster in Denver, we have a few suggestions that can help you put together a themed wedding you will love, your guests will enjoy and all who attend will remember forever.
Use Your Personal Story
You could pick a theme that shows a part of the story of you and your future spouse. It could be a shared hobby or poem. It could be based on where you met or where your proposal was done. If the theme comes from a part of your story as a couple, your guests will likely enjoy the theme. Themed weddings based on a couple’s unique story can be some of the most rewarding ones to attend.
Find a Theme You Love
Creating a dream board, inspiration board or using Pinterest can be ways to help you find a theme that you love. You may see patterns repeat or common ideas emerge that will help find your theme. In some cases, it’s easy for couples to pick a theme based on the wedding venue or general location. For example, a destination wedding in Hawaii may lead to a tropical theme and the choice may be an easy one. For other couples, a theme choice may take a little more coaxing.
Use Your Theme as an Accent
Sometimes the understated use of a theme makes it more successful. If you are having your wedding at a vineyard, you could give your guests a bottle of the wine to enjoy instead of having merlot bridesmaid dresses, tablecloths and a red velvet cake – or hanging fake grapevines everywhere you look. Using your theme to create a special touch can enhance your wedding while maintaining focus on the celebration of your love.
Weave enough of your theme in that it is noticeable. You can choose to spread the theme throughout different aspects of your wedding. You want your theme to be noticeable and appreciated but you also want it to be in balance. When it comes to themed weddings done right, incorporate your theme but do it without going overboard to avoid coming off as tacky or cheesy.
Being Personal is Timeless
If the day captures you as a couple and the love you have for each other, your wedding will be wonderful and timeless. If the way that you use your theme is fitting for you both as a couple and is reflective of who you are, you’ll be able to look back at photos and video and know that you hit all the right notes.
There can be a fine line between themed weddings done right and those that are overdone, but following the above tips will help you plan a wedding you will both love with a theme you will cherish.
