Dilemma for the theme!

Samantha, on May 13, 2019 at 11:04 AM Posted in Style and Décor 0 6

Hey lovely ladies!

I need some help figuring out which route to go for our theme. I have my dress already and I want to build around the style of my dress for our theme. I am conflicted though. We have always thought of doing a very rustic wedding but I feel my dress is too fairy tale for the rustic feel we initially were going for. I'm looking for advice if we should go with our initial plan but kinda tone it down or go more fairy tale to fit my dress style? Any ideas or pictures would be great. Thank you! I also attached the link with pictures of my dress below. It has subtle sparkles in the tulle skirt.

    I don't have a theme or a color scheme. But I don't think that a rustic theme would clash with your dress!

    When you say rustic do you mean like rugged in the country rustic or more of a rustic aesthetic in a controlled environment (restaurant, event hall, lodge etc.). I think the dress is beautiful and won't mess with a rustic theme, but if you're on a muddy farm or more natural setting it may prove a bit inefficient.

    If you really feel your dress will clash with a rustic theme, then I'd suggest doing a modified theme such as rustic chic. You can keep the rustic feel but add some softer fairytale-like details to compliment your dress.

    Here's what I mean by rustic chic:

    In this day & age u don't have to pick 1 or the other.. infuse the looks together.. Rustic Fairytale is very romantic.. Maybe HAPPILY EVER AFTER.. U could use a rustic venue then decorate adding lots of twinkle lights & flowers & candles..
    Heres some pics I think show how it can blend together beautifully.

    A woodland theme would look amazing! Natural elements with romantic touches and soft colors would be so pretty with your dress.

    Your dress is beautiful! I love the illusion back so much! I don't think it's too "fairy tale", but if you want to go that route, there is actually a lot of stuff on Pintrest with ideas on how to incorporate the rustic and fairy tale styles together! There's a lot of burlap with lace options that would be super cute! You can also look at "woodland wedding" for some more ideas!
