While is is fun to get ideas from these themes, what matters most is that the bride and groom have a wedding which is true to their vision. The theme that the couple selects should have some personal relevance and meaning to them as a couple. Why bother with a theme? It provides a sense of community to all decisions made about the wedding - from the gowns to the lowers to the reception venue and the foods chosen. Decisions are so much easier once the theme for the wedding is established. Whether it is a color or a location or a time period or event, the focus is there to insure that this life changing celebration is memorable for participants and guests alike.
- History lovers may wish to be married in the "Roaring Twenties" of F. Scott Fitzgerald. Art Deco can be the design focus. Jazz was king and flappers wore short gowns and bling was everywhere.
- World travelers - or - dreamers will find a wonderful theme in exotic locations. Tropical isles, far Eastern spots or Scottish highlands all provide a structure for food, decor, dress or paper products.
- Bright colors against neutral backgrounds can be very effective. Instead of carrying out a color theme in the brides maids dresses, have them in a basic shade like platinum and carry out the color theme in the flowers and reception decor.
- The ceremony and/or reception location can provide the theme for a wedding. If a museum is chose as the venue, art and sculpture become the theme. If a garden or beach or ranch is chosen as the site, the theme becomes clear.
- Medieval accents combines with fairy tail touches work well in historic buildings or modern redos which retain the original stone walls and structures.
