So you’ve decided to tie the knot with your man. The date is set, the guest list has been finalized, but you still haven’t decided on how you want the big day to be like. It looks like everything else is ready but the actual wedding.
Here is a list of wedding themes to help you decide what you want your wedding to look like, so you can have the best day of your life.
Natural elements rule when it comes to a rustic themed wedding. A rustic wedding works for brides who want to DIY the wedding decor. Although it isn’t necessary, a rural setting like a barn works well for the theme. Weathered or exposed wood and linens are a great way to accentuate the rustic feel of the wedding. Coupled with mason jars and string lights, a rustic themed wedding will bring out the simplistic and homey mood you want to evoke.
Harken back to the olden days and draw inspiration from them with a vintage style wedding. Vintage aesthetics are a popular theme with weddings because of how easy it is to pull off. In need of a wedding dress? Raid your mom’s or grandmother’s closet! Maybe they still have their wedding dress tucked in there somewhere. Antique furniture can be found just about anywhere for a fraction of a cost; weathered sweetheart chairs are even carried by party rentals if you’re too busy to go furniture hunting. The Bridal Guide features a ton of vintage wedding ideas to inspire your own vintage themed wedding.
Elicit the atmosphere of l’amour d’exquise with a romantic wedding theme. Delicate flowers like baby’s breath and carnations adorn the reception area, and a pastel color palette enhances the romantic atmosphere. Wedding invitations are usually handwritten with a calligraphy pen. For your wedding gown, think light, almost fluttery fabrics that bring out the softness of your features.
Remember Troian Bellisario’s wedding in 2016? Her three-day bohemian wedding celebration was nothing short of incredible. Guests slept in gorgeous glamping tents by a bonfire while being serenaded by none other than the groom himself. While you might not be celebrating your union with a three day event, you can take some cues from Troian’s wedding. Think world textiles like Ankaran fabrics, Moroccan carpets instead of a more traditional red or white carpet for your wedding. Macrame wall hangings can adorn the walls of your reception area. A bohemian wedding isn’t complete of course without those bohemian trinkets like turquoise beads or anklets with bells and chimes.
If you’re planning a small, intimate wedding, then a garden party theme would be perfect for the occasion. A garden party fits the intimate moment well, and if the wedding happens to be held in the spring or summer, it would be even better since flowers are usually in full bloom by then. Head on over to The Knot for a list of garden inspired wedding ideas to bring your own garden wedding to life.
