Tips for Wedding Themes

Create your wedding themes at Crystal Ballroom

Wedding themes are the most exciting part of wedding planning. This is the central theme to your romantic event. Even if you are creating the classic wedding with your favorite colors, you are about to begin an exciting journey. Imagine a ceremony in a garden, a 1920’s speakeasy or a Disney princess inspired story. Get inspired by these tips for creating your wedding theme and let's create a fairy tale.

Choosing Wedding Themes

Choosing wedding themes is about narrowing it down to one main idea. Your wedding venue will tell a story with the flowers, colors and designs. A prerequisite to design is knowing the idea you want to convey. Sometimes, choosing wedding themes can be more of a challenge than creating them. Too many options can create a little indecisiveness. While the wedding is commonly thought of as the bride’s day, it is important to realize this day was made for two. Work together as a team to incorporate small elements that are unique to your relationship and are meaningful.

Just Like the Fairy Tale

Stay grounded as you let the fairy tale inspire your designs. Your wedding day should not be just like another. Think about your favorite books, movies, significant locations or other common interests, and create your rendition of the magical affair. Wedding themes should be obvious, but not exact. Your wedding theme will be a concept, rather than a replication. Never create expectations for a replica. Make this day your unique version of the fairy tale.

Creating Your Theme

Think about the kind of experience you want to create. Do you imagine something fun and playful or romantic and serene? Think of ways to create the experience with the cuisine, entertainment, cake, décor, wedding favors, invitations and place cards. Whether you are looking for obvious or subtle, make it personal and keep it significant to your relationship. This is your theme. Think about the concept in a way that has never been done before.

Make a List

Create a small list of ideas on your journey. Wedding themes have a color scheme. Find your base color and two accent colors that will clearly identify your inspiration. Your list should include the type and color of wedding attire, design elements of the cake, décor ideas, types of flowers, ideas for invitations and little touches on the tables. Even the way you make your grand exit will make a statement.

Wedding Cake

Your wedding cake is one of the easiest and most creative ways to incorporate wedding themes. A Cinderella inspired wedding might display sky blue fondant with pink and blue roses, gold piping with white overlay of filigree, a clock with hands inching around towards midnight and a golden carriage on top. Rustic wedding themes might showcase a rustic wedding cake to match. Imagine a semi-naked wedding cake with the earthy elements of a garden. Add wild flowers to your design to match the season.
