Choose your type and pick a theme!
Why not a wedding with a theme? Wedding themes are favored by many brides and grooms. Weddings with themes are easier to plan, decorate, and it’s representative for a couple’s style and personality. Thereby, a theme, is more enjoyable for the guest and it will provide a more memorable experience for them. One of the most popular themes for a wedding is the theme ‘Beach’. Furthermore, the theme can be a color, or the 80’s&90’s period, or eastern, if that’s the period you get married in. Every guest can use the theme in the way he/she wants, exaggerate or keep it simple. For the wedding ceremony in general, it creates something extra.
1. The first question you should ask yourself, before picking a theme is: What is meaningful for you? What hobbies do you have? What’s interesting for you? Are you more the elegant or playful type? Popular themes include beach/nautical and garden themes, romantic or Shakespearean themes and even Western-style or Renaissance themes. Cultural themes are especially popular in recent years because cultures in general are more mixed when it comes down to marriage; more intercultural weddings.
2. Invitations and favors are good tools to introduce your theme. If you choose the renaissance theme, you could send invitations with knights on it. If you choose the beach theme you could create a tropical look for the invitations and for the garden theme you could create something beautiful with all kinds of flowers and butterflies. After this, you can look at the wedding favors, which you can find online very easily in all kinds of price- categories.
3. Choose the wedding location and decoration! The beautiful thing is that you can transform the location into a ‘ fantasy’ place according the theme. It will be a special place, for a special day, with a special and personal atmosphere.
4. Lastly, important to implement your theme is the right choice of music. Music gives people strong memories and associations and is perfect for setting the right atmosphere and implementing the theme of the ceremony. For example, for cultural weddings like an African one or an Italian one, the music is very important to create the right atmosphere for dancing.
