One way to make your wedding more memorable could be to have a theme wedding.
Taking the decision to have a theme wedding is the easier part. Deciding on the theme is harder. You could decide on a 17th century theme or a dream wedding theme, but while considering these themes, it is important to consider certain factors like cost, availability personnel etc.
If you are looking for a fresh look theme, look at your wedding date. Every season has its own charm and you could have a seasonal theme for your wedding that would incorporate all the glory, colors and beauty of the nature around you. It could be memorable and unique in its own way.
Wedding in Late Winter or Early Spring
Many people like to get married in late winter or early spring when nature is at its best.
In spring everything looks fresh and new after the winter’s sleepy hibernation. In spring gardens and parks are in full bloom and the colors of nature are in full swing. Shades of pastel adorn the landscape with myriad shades and romance blossoms with a new haste and height. Having a spring season theme for your marriage would evoke the same feelings in your guests albeit to a lesser extent… (No-one can compete with nature… can they?).
Spring colors for the bridesmaids are pastel shades, each a different color would create a different look. Tables with snowdrops or daffodils… miniature ones of course would give a fresh look. Back it up with tulips adorning the décor. Fill old fashioned jam jars with fragrant candles for a garden ambience. You could add flavor to the wedding by adding pink champagne to the afternoon tea and organizing dance entertainment with Morris dancing for the adults or an Easter Egg hunt for the young.
Wedding in Summer
Another popular season for wedding is the Summer, June, July and August being the most preferred months owing to the warm sunshine and reduced chance of bad weather. The color patterns of summer are spicier compared to the pastel shades of spring. A summer theme should aim to create a tropical ambience through the use of yellows, bright orange, lime green and hot pink color themes.
You could spice it up by making the bridesmaids wearing clothes of vibrant colors and more so, if they carry an exotic tropical flower different from each other and different from the normal bouquet offerings. Have the wedding breakfast in the garden incorporating barbecued fish and lime. A steel band can set the guests on fire with fun and relaxing aesthetics.
Wedding in Autumn
Autumn might bring some challenges to your creativity. Flowers are less abundant and the colors are down to earth with a mix of browns, gold, rust, coppers and reds. Substitute the flowers you carry with dried grass, wheat and berries, mix it up a little. Keep the food simple – soups, home made bread, fruits, cheese and roast meat. Halloween and romantic background music can work wonders with the ambience.
Wedding in Winter
Winter, considered dull by some, can be the most is a magical time for weddings. The dark and cold nights could be converted to a warm ambience by use of candles, twinkling lights. Winter is when family gatherings have a special meaning and signals festive times. White, silver and blue are apt color for a winter wedding theme. Adorn the bridesmaids with silver and turn the flower girls into little fairies with all the works – wands and wings.
Tables can be adorned with white feathers and the best sweets and chocolates available, light them with indirect blue lights. Serve white chocolate with the proper adornments to get the best of the winter ambience.
Whatever the season you choose, a little creativity in the theme can go a long way in making your wedding the most memorable ever.
