Three Interesting Wedding Themes to Try
Updated: Jan 27
Many brides and grooms want to put their own stamp on their wedding, and let’s face it a church wedding is not for everyone. Instead of going down the traditional route many couples are opting to remember their special day by having a particular theme or fashion style to express who you are as a couple.
Here are just a few options to help get your mind ticking;
One that springs to mind is a Great Gatsby Wedding, the dress code is from the era of the 1920s, where the appearance of wealth and opulence abounds. The bride may arrive in a vintage car and the theme can be carried through to the reception – white table cloths with large glass centrepieces and gilt chairs look stunning and depict that era.
If that doesn’t take your fancy you might like the more informal wedding Boho theme. Boho is characterised by long flowing or tiered skirts and dresses, peasant blouses, ethnic touches like tunics or wood jewellery, embroidery or embellishment with beading, fringed handbags, and jewelled or embellished flat sandals (or flat ankle boots). This style is more casual and can be suitable for an outdoor wedding where a more informal tone is sought, often for people who are trying to keep costs down. Boho chic is an ideal theme for a country wedding or for those who just want to bask in the simplicity of love and nature itself.
Seaside casual is also something to be considered for people who live a beach lifestyle and want to keep things simple and feel the sand in their toes. Smart casual wear with sandals (even thongs) is appropriate for our hot summers and there is nothing more romantic than a lovely beach wedding with an outdoor reception with long tables and native flowers.
So whatever your style is, there exists a wealth of ideas to make your wedding, a day to remember.
Whether it be modern, alternative, rustic, garden party, nautical, art deco or a formal traditional wedding, make sure you allow you and your partner to shine through.
