    Nope. You are having a wedding, not a party. Themes are just visions for the wedding, you have colors, pick your vision and go.

    Nope, no theme. A color scheme is enough IMO

    Thanks i didnt think it was so common to have one. Everyone is asking and I feel so stupid when I responde with "we dont have one" then I get one of those blank stares. :/

    Pay them no mind. Some people have themes but out of all of the weddings I've been to or been in in my life, I've only ever been to 1 themed. It was 50s themed and it was cute but a theme is in no way necessary.

    If you do end up choosing a theme, less is more. Don't overdo it or it becomes like a child's bday party.

    The theme is "wedding". That's what I always tell people!

    No but instead of a theme what do you want vibe to be? Fun? Elegant? Classy? Formal? I think vendors want to know more about how you want your guests to feel. Our goal is for fun and informal - we aren't doing a lot of traditional things and we are emphasizing the photo booth and dancing parts of our reception.

    You can have a color scheme. But themes are for birthday parties.

    I haven't chose one and I won't. I get married on 6/17/17. I just choose my colors and from there on I have an idea of how I want to decorate which it will be with rustic stuff. So no I don't think you need to have a theme at all.

    I think sometimes people say theme when maybe they mean "feel". I.e. vintage, rustic, bohemian, etc. Our "theme" was BBQ, but it was really just what guided the level of formality, decorations, etc.

    Our only theme is our colors. We do want the flowers and other decor to match our venue which has a classic and elegant feel. Oh. And twinkle lights. Lots of twinkle lights.

    I say stop worrying about a theme and think of what kind of "feel" you want your wedding to be.

    You don't have to have a theme, but it helps to have "buzzwords" or something that describes the style or feeling you want. For example I want my wedding to feel "rustic" and "romantic" so I choose decorations and elements according to that.
