How To Pull Off A Theme Wedding

April 26, 2016

“Having a theme helps to create a sense of continuity and cohesiveness and often can be a good jumping-off point when starting your planning.” There is a fine line between a theme that brilliantly pulls off a wedding and one that starts looking shabby!  Here are five tips on how to stay on the elegant side of the line :-

1. Choose a theme that speaks to you.

Authenticity comes first for every aspect of your big day. If a theme that reflects you and your fiancé doesn’t come to mind, don’t sweat it. “You should never force a theme,”  “If you’re having a hard time connecting with something, take a step back and create an inspiration board.”

 

2. Use a theme to tell your story.

“I find it especially important to incorporate a ‘storytelling’ aspect when planning a wedding, as it’s the beginning of a new chapter in a couple’s life.”  You can also choose a theme based on a specific part of your and your fiancé’s relationship. “Some of the sweetest and intimate themes I’ve seen have been inspired by a couple’s shared hobby or a favourite poem.”

 

3. Consider the theme an accent, not the focus.

“If every piece of décor looks the same and has the same colours or patterns, it will be distracting.”  “It’s about finding a balance and using the theme to enhance your special day.”

 

4. Weave it subtly throughout the event.

Just one pinecone in the centerpiece might not help guests pick up on the woodsy theme you’re going for. But incorporating it through several aspects of the décor — say with natural branches around the cake stand and mini tree slices displaying table numbers — will easily tie the day together.

 

 

5. Keep it personal to keep it timeless.

So long as the day captures you and your groom, you’ll avoid the “What was I thinking?!” moment 20 years from now. “As long as you choose a theme that has meaning for both you and your partner, then your wedding day will always be timeless.”
