You’ve just got engaged and you are still on Cloud Nine, but you begin to think that you should probably start thinking about the wedding date and theme of that special day. Even if you have months to prepare for your big day, you should start early to plan and organize your wedding. However, it can be difficult to decide which theme works best for you and your partner. The more you check google and Pinterest for styles and inspirations, the more confused you become. Do not worry, I have you covered. Here’s a quick guide to help you choose the right wedding theme for you.
8 Tips to Choose the Perfect Wedding Theme
Discuss and brainstorm with your partner
The big day is about two individuals uniting as one. Therefore, it should center around things that matter to both of you. Think of a special date, place, or interest you share in common. What are your personalities like? Are you laid-back, preppy, classy, adventurous, or funny? Do you have certain favorites such as movies, books, music, or art?
Size of your wedding
Do you plan to have an intimate wedding or do you want to celebrate the big day with a long guest list? Do you want a small chapel wedding or a big church wedding? Or maybe you want to skip that and have a chic and simple city hall wedding.
Consider the date and season
The season has an impact on the possibility to have the celebration indoors or outdoors, the seasonality of flowers for decor, and the seasonality of ingredients for the menu.
Scout for potential locations
Think of potential venues after you decide on the potential date and size of your wedding. Do you plan to have the ceremony and reception in different locations or not? Do you plan to have it indoors or outdoors? Or maybe you want a destination wedding?
Think of the event’s formality
Depending on how formal you imagine your wedding would be, this dictates the type of wedding theme that will suit you, from the dress code to the decor.
Keep in mind your budget
Stay realistic and conceptualize your wedding within your budget. It is also wise to build potential budget scenarios for different themes and always have a wedding calculator.
Think of motifs or color schemes
Pick your favorite hues and balance them with those that complement the location and season. You may also choose timeless colors and motifs that will never go out of style.
Do your research
There are so many wedding themes out there that might confuse you. Understand the similarities and differences. This might even spark ideas for which themes you would like to combine.
No matter which wedding theme you pick, choose one that represents you and your partner. Don’t just follow a trend... set your own.
