It makes a great deal of sense to pick a wedding theme at the beginning of your wedding planning.
Well, if you choose your wedding theme first, it will help you choose wedding decorations, wedding invitations, wedding flowers, dresses and attire since it all revolves around a special theme.
There are so many wedding theme ideas - so how can you choose?
First, think of what matches your personality and is important to you as a couple.
Are you looking for that relaxed wedding without too much fuss? Choose a simple theme - around one main thought or colour and keep it all low key.
Do you just love a certain time of the year? Choose a Season of the year to be your main wedding theme. If it is a fall wedding theme - choose colours which represent the wonderful rustic autumn colours - light greens, pale yellows, pale to deep oranges, burgundy reds, and chocolate browns. Think of a rustic setting - old country church, old barn, orchard.
Perhaps you and your financee love the outdoors or sports and are thinking on an Extreme Wedding Theme - bungy jumping, jumping off a bridge - for the adrenaline junkies - think of ways you can incorporate one of these ideas into your wedding theme and as part of the wedding reception too (parachutes for decorations?)
Are you looking for a Romantic Theme idea? - a Hawaiian wedding, Beach Wedding, Fairy Tale wedding or re-creating that type of wedding just by scattering shells / umbrellas/ autumn leaves around the venue and reception area.
Second, think of what is realistic - how many guests can you have with you as you sky-dive from a plane?
Third, decide on the budget. Will this theme explode the budget? Think again.
Choosing a Wedding Theme is designed to help you narrow down your decisions. This should make the wedding planning easier.
