If you wish to make your wedding unique and add some personality to it, then a wedding theme is the key. You need to consider certain things before choosing a wedding theme for yourself, as it requires meticulous planning to make it work. Although planning the wedding can be enthusiastic, it can become very stressful for you if you are not able to handle all things on time. If you want a wedding theme, then you should plan ahead with the ideas.
Plan Your Wedding Theme
First, you need to see what time of year your wedding is slated for, before finalizing a wedding theme idea. For instance, if you have always dreamed of a winter wonderland theme, it won’t work out if your wedding is going to be in the middle of summer. If you are sure about what kind of theme you want, then it is advised that you book your wedding for that time of year, when your wedding theme best fits with the season.
Choose a place, as per the theme, for your wedding well in advance. For instance, if you are opting for a 20’s look, then you might rather select a place that has a 20’s look, like an underground club or restaurant, instead of a Tudor-esque castle. Once you are done with the venue selection, you need to consider the lights, decorations and colors. Unlike what many people think, wedding theme does not necessarily mean time, place, or era, it may also mean a particular decoration and/or color to create a theme. The tablecloths, flowers and other decorative items can add splash of colors to your venue and create a unique wedding theme.
You can also use your culture as the theme for your wedding, if you are passionate. If you and your partner are of different origins and culture, then blending both the cultures will not only create a personalized wedding theme, but also makes yours and your partner’s family members happy and delighted. Not only that, culture themes are affordable, easy to plan and suit all budgets comfortably. In culture theme, you need to focus on the food served, and you can include local dishes, like add sushi and noodles for Japanese weddings; add haggis, neeps and tatties for Scottish weddings; and curries, chappatis (Indian bread), sweets for Indian weddings and so on.
Besides food, you should also consider other factors as well so that they perfectly match with your wedding theme; music is the most important among them, especially if you are choosing a theme based on culture or a particular decade. You will have to select the sound tracks of that particular origin or era to reflect it. However, if your theme is based on colors and decorations, say white, red, orange, purple or yellow wedding, then you need not worry about the music and you can go for your favorite and latest tracks. Moreover, your wedding favors should also be in line with the wedding theme, as it will help your guests get a personalized touch and make your wedding memorable for not only you, but also everyone who attends it.
