To Choose a Themed Wedding or Not to Choose a Themed Wedding?

2 Sep

Choose a theme for your wedding with caution.

Your wedding day is one of the best chances of your life to prove that you can throw a better party than all of your friends and family members. Don’t blow this golden opportunity by choosing a stupid wedding theme.

Themed weddings are not necessarily a bad idea. A theme can help you to pull all of the little details together and make everything flow. Your theme can be something as broad and simple as basing everything around a few colors, or more complex such centering it around a holiday, location, culture or time period. Regardless of the theme you choose, it’s important to ensure that your guests understand it without it requiring an explanation. If you’re going to have a theme, then go all out with it so it makes sense.

It’s also important to avoid choosing a tacky theme. No one wants to have guests remember their big day as the tackiest wedding that they ever attended. If your wedding theme could easily moonlight as a theme for a child’s birthday party, this is a sign that you’ve chosen a stupid one.

Classy Ideas for Themed Weddings:

  • Beach
  • Garden
  • Monochromatic, base everything around different shades of one color.
  • Highlight a culture (Ex. have a Mexican themed wedding).
  • Centered around the season that the wedding is being held.
  • Fantasy, think royal wedding.

Terrible Ideas for Themed Weddings:

  • Basing the wedding around a movie, television series, or a band
  • Sports Teams
  • Gypsy
  • Camouflage
  • Red Neck
  • Amusement Park
