Top 10 Wedding Themes May 17 2016
It's hard to choose the best
There are so many fantastic wedding themes out there at the moment and each trend is further extended by the different color variations and options but in order to make it easier on you, I picked 10 of the best trends which are all super popular right now with brides all across the world opting for some of these trends.
What we’ve also seen happening quite a lot through the year is brides choosing less formal and traditional wedding themes, opting for some creative bits and pieces that make a wedding a truly memorable and speak to the character of the couple. And really, that’s what a wedding is all about. It’s your one day to shine, add some sparkle to your life and create a happy memory that will last a lifetime.
So, let me get right into the good stuff.
Elegant White Wedding
I doubt that an elegant white wedding will ever really go completely out of fashion as so many brides are still drawn to this lovely wedding theme. The wonderful thing about a white wedding is that there are endless possibilities. Adding hints of your favorite color is as easy as adding a key rose to the bouquet, or a pair of shoes in the color of your choice. We’ve seen some brilliant ideas for adding sparkle to a white wedding and a rhinestone brooch here and there add amazing depth and character to the décor pieces.
Bling Wedding Theme
Hands up who loves sparkle. Yup, I thought so. We ladies can’t resist sparkle and whether you’re an all-out-bling kind of girl, or a subtle twinkle here and there kind, you’ve got to admit, adding a bit of shine to your wedding is a must. I, of course, love myself some bling, so this theme is right up my alley.
Great Gatsby Wedding Theme
This theme is definitely for the more daring bride who loves the roaring twenties and all the sparkle it had to offer. There’s no doubt that women from this time were strong and independent and loved to let their characters shine. A Great Gatsby theme wedding is all about the glamor and confidence. Look for strong lines with dark contrasting colors and stunning patterns found on everything from the cake to your dress.
Lace Wedding Theme
I love how delicate and feminine the lace theme is and at some points it overlaps with the very popular vintage look. Lace can easily be incorporated into any area of your wedding from décor to shoes, making it a great choice for a DIY wedding.
Vintage Love Wedding Theme
Like the white wedding theme, the vintage theme is here to stay. It’s feminine and so personal with touches from grandma’s treasure chest making the day intimate and memorable. I love how this theme is so adaptable to the people involved in the making of a wedding donning the vintage look. Heirlooms and old timer trinkets, while not exactly matched, make for such a special occasion (and STUNNING photos).
Bohemian Wedding Theme
Freedom of spirit and mind is what rules the Bohemian wedding theme. It’s a stunning theme and lends itself well to the DIY wedding with a gorgeous free-spirited feel about it. This is another one of those trends that just won’t be going anywhere as we see our millennial’s entering their marriage phases soon. The Boho theme is by no means minimalist, but it’s gloriously simple in the materials it uses, concentrating more on natural elements like the earth, nature, and spirit. You can dress this theme up or down, or simply use features of it on your wedding design.
Outdoor/ Garden Wedding Theme
This is another incredibly versatile wedding theme and when paired with other themes can totally transform. For example, an outdoor white wedding is elegant, sleek and with a hint of natural beauty while a rustic outdoor garden event is all about the individual character of the features used to make the wedding. I love an outdoor event and at the right time of year, right time of day it makes AMAZING photographs.
I also find that an outdoor wedding tends to be a bit more relaxed and scenes of kids playing while adults laugh and enjoy each other’s company after a lovely ceremony almost always come to mind with this theme.
Greenery Wedding Theme
Not at all surprisingly, this theme has really blown up over the last year becoming immensely popular. I’ve seen elegant white weddings including a touch of green in their décor and flower arrangements, which is simply amazing. I’ve also seen this trend take on the more natural wedding feel with lovely relaxed tables lined with hints of greenery and flowers.
Woodland Wedding Theme
This theme makes me think a lot of the Twilight wedding between Bella and Edward. It’s gorgeous, intimate and totally natural with décor ideas like moss-lining and carved wooden features. While some weddings tend to be more elaborate, other woodland themes make use of only natural elements. Either way, this theme is totally magical and is bound to be one that every guest will remember
Beach Wedding Theme
This list would be incomplete without the beach wedding theme. While I’m not a huge fan of the typical nautical theme (for weddings, that is), I’ve recently seen some amazing beach-themed wedding ideas that deserve a mention. So this is for those of you who love the sand and waves. Enjoy a beautifully romantic day (or night) planned out to the tee, right down to the complimentary flip flops given to guests so that they don’t get sand in their Sunday bests.
Let me know what you think deserves a mention in the Top 10 list.
