Best Wedding Theme Ideas: Themes to Make Your Wedding Day Unforgettable
Wedding Theme Ideas: My Favorites
It's supposed to be the happiest day of your life, so it's logical that you would want to make your wedding day also as memorable as possible. That's why searching for the best wedding theme ideas is so popular among newly engaged couples. With a great theme, your wedding will be the talk of your friends for years.
From simply decorating with certain colors to requiring the guests to dress specially and actively participate in your theme, it's almost certainly be done before, but that doesn't mean you can't personalize the wedding theme to you and your fiance and fit both of your unique personalities.
From era-themed to location-themed to color-themed, couples have chosen themes that are meaningful to them. After all, that's the most important thing you should keep in mind: your wedding should be significant and memorable for you and your significant other.
The Beach Wedding
One of the most popular wedding theme ideas is the beach wedding. Something about the crisp cleanness of the ocean, the tangy breeze, and how everything looks even more beautiful under the glow of a beach sunrise or sunset.
Whether the beach wedding theme idea is in combination with a destination wedding far from home or within driving distance, something about the beach wedding theme idea makes the entire ceremony more magical.
Many beach weddings are simple affairs, with fewer than 50 guests, or even solo vows, with a much bigger reception at a place of worship or town hall nearby. A Caribbean or Mexican cruise would be the perfect honeymoon to conclude this beautiful beach wedding theme idea!
Florida Beach Wedding
The Hollywood Wedding Theme Idea
The glitz and glamor of Hollywood is inspirational in many people's wedding theme ideas, especially with a mid-20th century vibe. There's something to be said for perfectly coiffed hair, bright red lips, and lovely flowing wedding gowns.
Couples may choose to keep the "Hollywood" feel at a minimum, sticking only to the black-and-white with red accents color palette, or go the whole way, with top hats, permed hair, and movie-themed decorations. Frankly, my dear, the choice is yours.
The Victorian Wedding Themes
Many Europeans and Americans have a fascination for the Victorian era, when clothing styles were elaborate, customs were well-defined and structured, and people regularly discussed religion, politics, and philosophy.
There is a lot to admire in the Victorian era, and those who love old-fashioned style will enjoy celebrating their wedding day with a Victorian theme. Victorian themed wedding dresses are often ivory or pale gold instead of white, and popular theme colors are dusky pink and brown.
The Color Wedding Theme Ideas
The traditional wedding dress color is white, but there are many colors and color palettes to choose from to brighten up your wedding theme ideas while providing coordination among the decorations, the guests, and the people participating in the wedding.
Popular theme colors are black and white, pink, red and white, and gold. Don't be afraid to choose your favorite colors, though! Many brides are choosing color wedding dresses to add excitement to an otherwise traditional wedding. The Knot has wedding invitations and decorations that you can sort by color combination, and there is every imaginable color preference available. Follow your favorite color, and the rest will follow.
Fairytale Wedding Theme Ideas
What girl wouldn't want to not only feel like a princess, but look and be treated like a princess on her wedding day. Choose your favorite fairytale, or make one up as you go along. Fairytale weddings are whimsical and stunningly beautiful at the same time.
Expect the bride to wear a princess-styled gown (of course!), with a tight bodice and flowing shirts, and the groom to sport an extremely formal suit or a tuxedo. The new couple might combine their fairytale wedding with a destination wedding, or just experience paradise in their minds and hearts. Whatever their choice, their wedding day is sure to be an adventure.
