Coming up with a clever wedding theme is easy for some couples, but it does require a level of creativity.
If you and your groom-to-be are stumped and can’t seem to come up with or agree on a specific theme, here’s a fool-proof idea: your wedding season.
What could be easier than incorporating the time of year into your affair?
And here’s a really simple way of going about creating a theme revolving around the season: just make a stream of consciousness list of things relating to your wedding season.
This master list should factor in colors, scents, patterns and textures.
For instance, if your season is summer include on the list sand, seashells, breezes, ocean, lobster, flowers, birds, blue, ice cream, yellow, seaweed,etc.
Now you have the beginning of a plan. The colors you have listed, for instance, will provide you with ideas for your bridesmaids dresses, bouquets and centerpieces.
Edible items can be the start of the menu. See where we’re going with this?
Other seasonal considerations include:
Does a holiday fall around your wedding? If so, incorporate it into your theme. This can include the Fourth of July, St. Patrick’s Day, New Year’s Eve, Halloween, Christmas, New Year's Eve, Valentine's Day and Easter.
Create a wedding theme around an unconventional occasion such as Mardi Gras or Cinco de Mayo.
Too colorful and festive for your taste? What about Earth Day then?
Consider one seasonal element and make that your wedding theme.
A great example is snow. Use white branches with sprinkles of silver or gold for the ceremony and reception décor.
Spray paint snow cones various shades of white and use them as place card holders or as part of the table décor.
The wedding cake can feature traditional white fondant, decorated with sugar snowflakes. And for a touch of whimsy, add a little snow-bride and snow-groom as a topper!
