Wedding planning is such an intricate and complicated process that involves an endless amount of difficult decisions, unideal compromises, and unexpected conflicts. At the same time, it’s going to be filled with lasting memories that you and yours share for the rest of your happy lives.
Not everything will be perfect about your wedding day, but there’s one thing you can perfect – your wedding theme. There are a ton of wedding theme ideas to choose from and there’s no wrong answer. Everyone has their own, unique taste and this is their opportunity to display it.
There are several factors to consider when searching for the perfect wedding theme, including the location, the design elements, the lighting, the color scheme, the signs, the photos, the wedding cake, and much more. We can save all that mumbo-jumbo for another day, though.
Right now, let’s take a look at some of our personal favorite wedding themes that you should consider on your wedding day.
Vintage Wedding Theme
The vintage wedding theme is consistently one of the most popular themes for brides and grooms alike. It incorporates a vintage, antique, old-fashioned style and allows you to dress as you would’ve in the early-1900s. To top it off, you can drive away in a classic or collectible car.
Alternative Wedding Theme
An alternative wedding theme is reserved for those that have their own unique style. It has more of a business-meets-pleasure feel to it and allows you to bring out your inner personality with awkward color schemes and big, boxed typography or fonts. It creates a unique experience!
If you’re interested in incorporating cultural, musical, and artistic elements into your wedding day, then a Bohemian wedding theme might be perfect for you. They often feature unique oriental rugs, macramé decor, decorative pillows, etc. It creates such a relaxing atmosphere!
The modern look has become extremely popular in everything from clothing to interior design, so it’s only natural to want your wedding theme to follow suit. This theme features a minimalist design scheme with geometric shapes, clean lines, textures, mirrors, and bold color schemes.
Romantic Wedding Theme
A romantic wedding theme is perfect for those that want to set the mood. Dimmed lighting, beautiful chandeliers, plenty of flowers (everywhere), pastel color schemes, and beautiful calligraphy throughout. Your special day just got a lot more special – and romantic!
Rustic Wedding Theme
A rustic wedding theme is ideal for those that like to ‘do it yourself.’ It’s simple and basic, but fun and exciting at the same time. It features a lot of wood elements, mason jars, lace and twine, string lights, chic and rustic decor, and natural elements throughout. It’ll bring your day to life!
Fairytale Wedding Theme
Although not as popular as some of the other wedding themes we’ve listed, a fairytale wedding is reserved for the Disney enthusiasts that want to write their own fairytale. This theme boasts elegance, but it’s okay to let your imagination run wild. After all, this is your real-life fantasy!
The destination wedding theme is the ultimate option for any vacation junkie. You get to choose your dream location, get access to the best scenic views, and get some jaw-dropping wedding photos that’ll blow you away. The real question is, where are you booking your dream wedding?
An outdoor wedding is designed to bring you, your significant other, and all your family members and friends a little closer to nature. The fresh air, the sounds of the birds chirping, the breeze, there’s a lot to look forward to. Of course, you must hope for the right weather at the right time.
Art Deco Wedding
Any fans of The Great Gatsby? If so, you might want to consider an art deco wedding. It incorporates a lot of black and gold elements, sparkles, geometric shapes, sharp lines, and jazz elements that bring life to the party. Live like a true gentleman and show off your bride in style.
This wedding theme can easily fall under the ‘destination wedding’ category, but it’s a little more specific. The beach is one of the most desirable locations to get married – the sound of the waves, birds chirping, the sand between your toes, everything about it screams perfection.
Traditional Wedding Theme
Of all the wedding themes out there, it’s no coincidence that many people still decide to go with the traditional wedding theme. It’s the way it was always meant to be and captures the true meaning of marriage – the same way your parents and grandparents did it decades ago.
A backyard wedding is one of the most casual, yet intimate wedding themes you can have. Whether you’re having it in your own backyard, a family member’s backyard, or the backyard of an Airbnb, it truly brings everyone a little closer together. You get to create your own little oasis.
A country wedding is another very popular wedding theme idea that’s reserved for those that dig the cowboy boots, cowboy hats, obnoxious belt buckles, country music, and the smell of horses. It’s another way to bring your guests closer to nature and explore the countryside.
Our final wedding theme is one that’s so outrageous that it’ll only appeal to a select few couples – a superhero wedding. The reason we wanted to highlight this one is because we wanted all the couples out there to realize that there truly is no wrong answer when planning your wedding.
