Choosing a theme for your wedding is very popular right now. A theme gives your wedding a cohesive look and feel. From the wedding invitations, to the decorations and even the wedding favors everything can tie in with the theme you’ve chosen to make your wedding truly memorable. The best part about choosing a theme for your wedding is that it will allow you to put your own personal stamp on your special day. I have put together some of the wedding theme ideas that are trending right now to help make your day more personal and memorable.
More and more brides are looking forward to including their groom in the details and design of the wedding. This new trend allows both partners to be reflected in the theme of the day. Creating a theme that combines the feminine and masculine tastes and personalities makes for a perfect union of seemingly mismatched accessories such as delicate glassware and solid black plates or elegant flower arrangements with a touch of rugged wood accents or the blending of chic and rugged patterns. These eccentric blends can make a modern and elegant theme that is perfectly unique to the two of you.
TIP: When going with an eclectic theme for your wedding, find a solid neutral color for the big staple items like tablecloths to keep all of the patterns grounded and working well together.
Textural floral arrangements are a big trend for weddings right now. Adding a range of texture to centerpieces and bouquets creates a more organic look and can add a rugged, vintage or industrial element to a classic wedding theme. Some of the more common ways to add texture include using mercury or vintage glassware for smaller arrangements or adding towering vases (glass, metal or wood) that allow the arrangements to spill over the sides as elegant and attention getting centerpieces. You can also add elements of wood and metal into the arrangements themselves (paper flowers, wood shavings and metal leaves).
TIP: Use candles and light strings on your tables and in your floral arrangements to amp up the romantic ambience.
Many brides are embracing the holidays simply by planning the wedding over the holiday weekend. Many couples have friends and family members who live outside the state or even country. With busy schedules and miles of separation to contend with, many couples opt to extend the holiday weekends for the purpose of wedding celebrations, allowing friends and family to attend the special day with more convenience.
TIP: Holiday themes need not be cheesy. Just because you have chosen to have a Christmas wedding doesn’t limit you to using red and green as your colors. Choose to have a winter theme, using cool, elegant colors that will still blend well with any holiday décor.
Deep and dark colors are currently dominating the wedding world. Dark colors can bring a sophisticated feel to any wedding theme. A deep, rich color pallet is also a great way to make sure your wedding theme includes your groom’s sense of style and masculinity while remaining elegant.
TIP: Using a theme of deep, rich colors is a great idea for winter and fall weddings.
Clean Geometric Shapes
Brides who love a more natural and organic feel but do not want a rugged country themed wedding can combine modern geometric glass and metals with the organic elements such as flowers and greenery to create a high end sophisticated and elegant theme.
TIP: Filling glass terrariums with flowers to create table centerpieces is a great way to achieve this trending theme.
