An unlikely Theme

Are you passionate about an idea that you want to center your whole wedding around? Themed weddings are often tricky to decide upon, mostly because it’s hard to find a way to create a tasteful one to begin with. If you’ve kicked around a couple ideas and can’t pin one down, here are a few broad avenues you can consider on the journey to making your day your own. Hopefully one of them encompasses the overall atmosphere you’re trying to bring to life!

Nautical. If you have a love of the ocean, or perhaps a favorite lake, it’s easy to dive into a nautical theme without going overboard. Simplicity is the key to this theme, and can turn an ordinary venue into an extraordinary space.

Black Tie. Are you a traditional guy or gal? Are you hoping to give your day that fairy tale feel by adding the most classic of elements? Go black tie and get in touch with your elegant side. Long gowns and tuxedoes aren’t utilized enough today!

Rustic. This is easiest and most tasteful way to represent your country roots. The smallest touches, like serving your drinks in mason jars and adding a few wildflowers here and there, can be the best way to give your wedding that rustic vibe.

Modern. Smooth, sleek and chic are the most prevalent modern décor guidelines. High fashion and edgy can lead to gorgeous bold color choices and an individualistic overall scheme.

Vintage. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with bringing a little old fashioned love back into the picture. You can take this as you please; Gatsby, Marilyn or Monet inspired ideas go a long way in making a beautiful day that much more memorable. Or simply employ pieces of art or furnishings from the desired era you’re hoping to bring to life.

Industrial. Where rich mahoganies meet charcoal steel—industrial themes are always a win and extremely popular as of late. Spice up this look by adding more natural greenery to the picture with potted plants or succulents.
