make a list or pile of:
- love it,
- hate it,
- or maybe
- or trends
3. These are a few of my favourite things
Don’t limit yourself by deferring solely to popular wedding themes like: beach weddings, classic weddings and destination weddings.
Seek inspiration from a few of your favourite things, and choose a wedding theme based on your shared favourite: quotes, activities, hobbies, foods, music, paintings, colours and more.
4. Let restrictions and significant items guide you rather than limit you
Use restrictions to cull your wedding theme options when feeling overwhelmed by too many choices. Perhaps let your wedding location or the season of your wedding date become a significant part of your wedding theme.
Similarly you may have already bought your dress or booked a classic car. You may have chosen some budget friendly seasonal flowers or any other significant wedding items featuring on your “wedding must haves” list. Consider letting the style of these items transcend to dictate your wedding theme.
5. Maintain perspective
When you’re not sure which choice is the right choice or you’re engaged in a disagreement, always refer back to your “must have and like to haves” list.
Remembering what is most important to you for your wedding always helps put your wedding theme choices back into perspective.
6. Personalise your theme
Perfect weddings are all about keeping it personal. Popular wedding themes speckled with quirky reminders of a bride and grooms unique relationship is always a winning combination.
7. Refine your wedding theme by embedding continuity
Avoid combining too many different themes or incongruous aspects into your wedding theme. All aspects of your wedding theme should complement each other. If something’s not working, refer back to what’s important to you and make adjustments (wedding co-ordinators are fabulous at helping you do this).
Most importantly, know when to expand your options and know when to cull. Remember “simple” can be a theme in itself.
