Bec- Wedding Themes

Popular Wedding Themes

 

Its no secret that weddings are very happy occasions. They are very personal to plan, therefore resulting in an endless amount of themes to choose from. With so many options available, we thought it would be a good idea to narrow down the list and present some of our favorites.

 

1. Beach

 

Very popular in the summertime, the beach theme offers a refreshing style that people love. This style generally works well with bright colors and tropical food and drinks. Having it actually be at the beach also offers an amazing sunset background for the ceremony and photo opportunities. Seashells are a great suggestion for decorations as well.

 

2. Picnic

 

This theme is a great option that is both affordable and adorable. Plaid designs on the tablecloths and picnic basket centerpieces are all popular picks. If your caterer is flexible, ask them to prepare the guests’ lunches in individual bags or containers. The names of each guest can be written on their package to offer the personal picnic touch.

 

3. Retro

 

Retro weddings are incredibly fun to plan and will be loved by young and old generations alike. Vintage stores and thrift shops will be great places to start looking for supplies. Be sure to keep the retro aesthetic in all aspects of the wedding, such as the invitations and centerpieces. Look into retro fashion to find the look that suits your style best.

 

4. Worldly

 

Adventurous couples love this theme. The whole idea is to appear well-traveled: maps, globes, travel tickets, and so many other items can be used for decorations. When sending out invitations, include any extra information the guests may need to know (for instance, including the menu is a good idea because an international theme has a vast array of options available).

 

5. Rock n’ Roll

 

This theme is quite popular with couples who love and value music. Rock n’ roll is a broad genre and it can be adapted to suit the personality of the couple. From glam rock to punk rock and classic rock, there are tons of styles that can be used to make a successful wedding. Darker colors are popular with this theme, groomsmen may also consider wearing converse instead of dress shoes.

 

6. Cherry Blossoms

 

Cherry blossoms are beautiful and popular, why not build a wedding around this theme? Pink and red will be the prevalent color for decorations, also be sure to include plenty of flowers to strengthen the theme even further. If you are looking to have even more of a Japanese feel to the wedding, consider including paper lanterns and many candles.

Tips to Help You Enjoy Your Event

decorating-tent-w-lanterns
Planning and prepping for any event can be stressful and time consuming. When the day finally comes, you want to be able to enjoy the day along with everyone else. Whether it be your wedding, birthday, or any other event you want to share with others, it is easy to get caught up in trying to make the day perfect that we forget to enjoy it.

- Planning -
When you give yourself enough time to plan and take care of all the details it gives you less to worry about when the day finally comes. When possible, do things that can be done ahead of time. Example, when catering your own event, prepare all the food and dishes that will be used to serve the food.

- Imagine your party like a guest -
When planning and hosting a party, we tend to get carried away trying to make sure everything is perfect. While we would always love to have everything perfect, we sometimes do not have the time. When you think of yourself as a guest it helps avoid giving yourself extra work. When you are a guest at a party, you probably do not notice or inspect every corner for dust. Instead, focus on what guests will notice; the music in the background, an inviting look with some space to sit.

- Let others help -
Delegate tasks to those that offer help. You probably can do everything yourself, but it will be more enjoyable if you don’t.

- Relax -
If possible, take 5 minutes before everyone starts arriving to relax. This will help the transition from work and prepping to enjoying and having fun creating memories.

- ENJOY -
Finally, ENJOY!! The best part about parties is not the food, drinks, entertainment or decorations but the people we spend the time with. Guests will enjoy the party more if they see you enjoying it as well. The best thing to help you relax and enjoy is to keep in mind is that you prepared as much as could.
