I know someone who just got married that used “red carpet” as their theme for their wedding ! So basically people had to dress as if they were walking on the red carpet ! Dope ! What are some themes you guys are using for your wedding ? I need help choosing
We're not really having an overt theme, although red carpet sounds fun! We're going with a colour scheme, which is inspired by cherry/apple blossoms and orchards (blush, spring green and a range of pinks and creams). We also wanted the reception to have an 'open air dinner in an orange grove in Europe' kind of vibe.

Having a Theme isn’t mandatory, but it can help guide your choices. I didn’t have a theme per say, but I wanted a winter wonderland feel (lots of blues, silver, and sparkle). Having that in mind when choosing decor really helped.

I guess my hopes were clicking on this and reading a bunch of cool themes that brides plan on doing for their wedding day, but the first thing I read was what appears to be Snark and sarcasm. That’s great that you’re not offended, but it kind of came off snarky to me

Lol Yeah that often happens on WeddingWire. Are you into Disney at all? Have you ever seen the Disney World weddings? oh em gee they are so gorgeous! The red carpet theme sounds awesome also! It’s not very often that people get to wear glamorous dresses
You absolutely don't need a theme. A good time sounds like a perfect "theme" to me! Go with a feel...are you as a couple fun and quirky? If so, maybe go with some bright colors and unique vendors, like a caricature artist during cocktail hour. Are you more glitzy and glamorous? Look for deeper tones with more "upscale" food and décor choices (lights, rhinestones come to mind). Or are you guys no frills? If that's the case, maybe you spend your money on a quality DJ and open bar so you can party the night away. I'd go with what makes you as a couple happy and comfortable because that will make it the best day possible.
We're also doing a little bit of a DND theme, but we're also throwing in some space and some of our other shared interests. It's a hodgepodge of us!
I would say the standard is more shooting for a vibe than it is a theme anymore, but themed weddings are also super fun!
Our invites are DND themed with some space elements on them (plus little dragons on each page), and our centerpieces and table names will have DND/MTG elements to them, but color scheme wise we're shooting for galaxy/space colors.
We recently switched all of our wedding plans from Vegas to locally here in San Diego. So now it’s going to be all white decor (and guest attire). The ceremony is on the beach behind the hotel, with a cocktail style reception on the hotel’s rooftop overlooking the ocean. Everything with a modern style, using very few flowers… and definitely no Boho or “beachy” or nautical decor. There will also be a subtle running theme of “circles” which has symbolism with weddings. So the save-the-date magnets were round, our invitations will be round, clear acrylic and there will be other little elements of the circle shape within the ceremony and reception decor. So, I’m referring to our wedding as “Coastal Chic”.
But, I really don’t know why people freak out over the word “theme”. I mean, if someone is planning the details of a wedding, then they are putting together a coordinated theme or concept or vision (it’s all the same thing) 🤷🏽♀️. To me, “theme” is just the style, the decor, the vibe and the overall look and feel of the wedding. For some people, they go all-in with specific colors throughout. Others go for a certain flower and some do overt decor and costumes. But, either term you use, it’s all something visual that’s reoccurring throughout the wedding.
Our vow renewal is at a science museum, and the different parts are in exhibits. We're going to utilize that to inspire our décor/elements:
The ceremony is in a planetary science/astronomy exhibit, so our STDs are vintage space postcards and the décor will be stars/moon/celestial.
The cocktail hour is in a physical sciences exhibit, so I'm thinking chemical glassware décor (like flasks and test tubes).
The reception is in a dinosaur/fossil exhibit, so our invitations will probably be fossilized wood "cards", and the décor will be fossil-inspired. Floral centerpieces utilizing ferns for the greenery, ammonite fossil place cards, and the cake design I have for inspiration has fossil imprints in the icing.
It's probably a bit wacky, and I know this isn't exactly "cohesive", but I like it. We're also having a "science experiment" dessert station that includes nitrogen ice cream (where they flash-freeze ice cream with nitrogen).
