Should I have a wedding theme?

When it comes to planning your wedding there are a million and one things to consider, one of which is whether your wedding should have a theme.

If you think of your wedding like any other event you might have been to, whether it’s a big beach party or an evening ball, most will have some sort of theme. It doesn’t have to be anything too garish or obvious, but a subtle theme will help to give your wedding consistency and unity throughout. So let’s take a look at whether or not to consider a wedding theme. 

Subtle themes

A theme for your wedding day can be as simple and subtle as a colour scheme throughout the room, table centrepieces and your bouquet or it can be more definitive such as a vintage tea party vibe, with plenty of vintage decorations and touches throughout the venue and even your attire.

Having a theme for your wedding day will not only help you marry all of the other elements of the day together, from the type of venue and ceremony you want to the colour of your bridesmaids dresses, but it will give you a good basis to work from with all your planning. There’s so much choice for weddings these days it can feel overwhelming, so having your theme clear in your mind should help you make more definitive decisions for the planning.

Choose your theme together

When choosing your theme, take the time to talk with your partner and figure out the type of ceremony and reception you want and where, as well as considering your own personal styles and personalities. This will make it look and feel even more special as a wedding is an incredibly personal experience and should therefore be a true reflection of the couple and their individual styles.

This should give you a good idea of how you envisage your day, the venue and everything else running and make it easier to decide on your theme. It’s also worth talking your ideas through with your wedding celebrant as they can help with ideas and discuss how it will work in relation to the logistics of the ceremony and reception.

Having a theme for your wedding is important, it makes planning easier and creates a wonderful and memorable day for you and your guests, as well as a true and personal reflection of the happy couple.
