Can someone tell me why it seems like such a struggle to make decisions? Problems that should seemingly be easy to solve and questions that should be answered in a heartbeat are becoming a daily struggle. What should I eat today? Where should I go this weekend? And the one that really got me–What on earth should my wedding theme be?
Now I know some people may not even consider having a theme for their wedding. But I can assure you that it is indeed necessary. Why? Well because having a theme for your big day allows for smooth sailing. It ties everything together and sets the tone and mood for the entire day. It also allows for your guests to get a better feel of the bride and groom as a couple.
Initially, Brandon & I had all intentions to go with a theater style/movie theme for our wedding simply because of our love for movies. However, seeing that we are having a destination wedding, we decided to keep treading along the lines of traveling because this is also something we both enjoy.
So if you haven’t already decided on a theme or you simply didn’t factor in this element in your planning process, here are 4 tips that you should keep in mind when choosing your wedding theme:
1) Find a common ground – The most important part about choosing your theme is ensuring that it is a reflection of both you and your partner. Everything in your wedding should have a meaning and a story behind it. Therefore, come together and brainstorm until you find a theme that fits your romance story perfectly!
2) Create your vision – Whether you’re obsessed with pinterest boards (which bride isn’t?) or making your very own wedding vision board, let your creative juices overflow as you gain inspiration from what you want your dream wedding to look like. You’ll be surprised how easy it will be to come up with a theme based on recurring subjects on your vision boards.
3) Incorporate your Venue – Be very mindful of the venue for the big day. Some locations are perfect for vintage themes, while others would go perfectly with a formal black tie affair.
4) Ask Around – Seek help from your close family and friends by asking them what they think would fit well with your personality as a couple. Don’t forget about the people you may know who have a knack for wedding related matters such as decor. They may very well have an eye for something you missed out on.
