Whether you and your fiancé are harvesting apples, or finding the perfect pumpkin to carve, this season is all about PICKIN’.
It goes without saying that one of the most important decisions for every couple is to pick the perfect wedding theme.
Choosing the colors and overall ambiance of your big day can be overwhelming at first. However, we have some advice on how the bride and groom can pick a theme that fits both their personalities and their budget.
First and foremost, if you are coming at this totally blind, the best way to start is get out a good old pen and paper and begin to brainstorm. What are your hobbies? What are your favorite things to do as a couple? How did you meet? Nine times out of ten, one of the above questions will spark a pursuitable idea.
Next, make sure you are able to actually articulate what your theme is. If you can’t describe it, your guest won’t be able to either. By verbally defining what your wedding theme is, your overall vision will be more unified and focused. Don’t worry if your theme is “complicated”. For example, Romantically Rustic could mean vintage decor, bold regal colors, red roses, and glamorous touches.
Finally, you and your fiancé need to choose a color (or color pallet) for your wedding. This can be a simple yet daunting task, as you will need to consider both what this color will look like in the venue, and if it will work well with your bridal party.
Often, the overall wedding theme can help dictate the wedding’s color pallet. Beach themes often call for a shades of blue, beige, or coral, whereas black tie themes usually use shades of black, white, and maybe a hint of gold or silver.
So, the next time you and your fiance are overwhelmed just remember:
Easy as 1 - 2 -3!
