Want to do something different on your wedding day? Looking to make that lasting impression on your guests? Then having a theme for your wedding is the way to go! Theme weddings are inspired by you. Is there a book you love, a color you wear all the time, a movie you’ve seen a hundred times? Take these little ideas and incorporate them into your wedding. Your guests will have a memorable night and you will have captured the essence of you!
Here are 5 unique wedding theme ideas to get you inspired.
Did you get married in Vegas and having the reception back at home? Or maybe you and your fiancé have a reoccurring game night with friends playing Texas Hold‘em. A Casino Night theme may be the right fit for you! There are so many ideas to incorporate in a Casino themed wedding from the invitations to the dessert table at the reception. Your invitations can be customized to look like playing cards or casino chips in the color of your choice. For the reception, have casino tables where guests can play with a certain number of chips and a dessert table including pastries in the form of dice, casino chips or playing cards. You could even include wedding favors in boxes that look like dice with candy inside.
Do you like the glitz and glamour of old Hollywood? This is all about feathers, pearls, cocktails and opulence. Why not have a wedding inspired by this romantic theme? The things you could do from beginning to end are limitless. Extravagant centerpieces with feathers and large white billowing flowers, draping pearls or crystal prisms can be one of the main features when one enters your reception hall. A champagne fountain and a gold wedding cake can be something your guests talk about for years to come.
Looking for something very formal where all your guests are dressed to the nine? Why not throw a black tie themed wedding. This is a very classic look and feel and your guests can put on that once in a lifetime full length ball gown (unless you’re a celebrity of course, then you probably have a closet full!) and the men can wear a black tuxedo or black dress coat with a bow tie. Think Bond. James Bond. Or the White House State Dinner. Classy, sophisticated and the most dressed up anyone will ever be in their lives. This is over the top and will most definitely be a night to remember.
Do you want to be a fairy tale princess, tiara and all? Fairy tale themed weddings can be whimsical and romantic, with all your guests believing in the Happily Ever After. Think Cinderella or Snow White. You can even recreate the enchanted forest look for cocktail hour with lit up trees, lanterns, beautiful elaborate flowers and candles. You don’t have to be married in a castle to feel like a princess on your big day. Capture the look you want and bring your fairy tale to life!
Circuses and carnivals are fun for all ages. A circus themed wedding can capture the kid in you and ensure all your guests have a blast at your reception! Your invitations can be unique to look like a circus with tickets for admittance and all! A few ideas to incorporate are big colorful balloons, popcorn and cotton candy machines, colorful umbrella centerpieces for the tables or hanging upside down from the ceiling and a photo booth with fun props.
Whatever your theme, have fun with it! After all, you are creating the most memorable evening of your life. Take your time and truly capture the look and feel of your big day!
