After getting engaged, some couples may want to wait long before making arrangements for their big day. Most couples, however, would start planning for a stress-free wedding right after the engagement. Once the date has been discussed, choosing a wedding theme must be next on your to-do list.
Choosing a wedding theme can be both exciting and tiring if you do not have an initial plan. For instance, you spend more time on Pinterest to look for inspiration. There are thousands of wedding-related pins that you can use as references. But if you are just randomly checking out wedding ideas, you would be left with hundreds of pins in your wedding board/s.
Here are some tips when choosing a wedding theme to guide you through happy wedding planning.
Consider When And Where Your Wedding Will Be Held
The date and place of your wedding are important factors to consider when choosing a theme. You should pick a theme that complements the season and the location. Think about a winter-themed wedding in the middle of the summer heat. It is definitely not what you’re aiming for, right? You can also pick a theme based on where you will be wed. If you are having a garden wedding, you can go for the rustic theme. Moreover, you can opt for a tropical-themed wedding if it will be held in or near the beach.
Look For A Theme That Matches Your Personalities
Personalize your wedding by going for a theme that suits both of your personalities. You may be travel buddies who enjoy exploring the world and that can inspire your theme. Also, you may want to show sophistication and elegance by choosing a minimalist theme.
You and your partner can go through the things that would, as Marie Kondo would say, spark joy. From there, write down what you want to see on your wedding day. When you marry that with your ideas of a dream wedding, you can come up with your own perfect theme.
Get Inspiration From Other Weddings
You may have attended personally or have seen weddings online that left a great impression on you. Use this as inspiration to come up with a theme that would blend in with your personalities or other wedding details. Imagine yourself having the theme others had. If it is something that you and your partner would agree to, then definitely go for it.
However, you do not have to copy everything from a specific wedding. If you are inspired by a glam wedding theme of a particular celebrity, there is no need to duplicate each detail. You may customise yours by using alternatives from that wedding.
Gather Advice From The People You’re Close To
Listening to others’ ideas can also stimulate creativity when planning for a theme. You may or may not agree with what they say, but that would help you notice the things that you want or do not want for your wedding.
Ask your friends or family members what they think would best describe you. And then, inquire about their insights on which theme is appropriate for you. List down the things they say and see what they have in common.
Have Fun Choosing Your Wedding Theme
Pressuring yourself will get you nowhere when it comes to wedding planning; it is a huge event in your life that you should do happily with the person you want to spend the rest of your life with.
When frustration and disappointment arise, take the time to breathe and relax. Remember why you are getting married in the first place. Have fun choosing a theme and planning for your wedding in general.
These are some tips to consider when choosing a wedding theme. You have to take other factors such as the budget into account as well. Remember to stay true to yourself and have fun during the planning stage. The photos on your wedding day will show if you enjoyed organizing for one of the best days of your life.
