Whether you’re the hopeless romantic that has been planning their Big Day since they were 10, or you’re one of those who only plays with the idea whenever they attend a wedding themselves, it would be unrealistic to claim the perspective of planning the so-called Most Important Day Of Your Life has never crossed your mind. This is why we’re bringing you a list with the best wedding theme ideas to consider for your future big day. If after reading it you race for your “Wedding Ideas” scrapbook, or just begin making up newer scenarios to think about on your ride home after your cousin’s engagement party… well, that is up to you.
The Beach Wedding
Although tying the knot by the sea has become cliché enough to be considered as not original enough, the theme has such an undeniable charm that makes it hard not to add it to this list. If you have always dreamt about saying “I do” under a palm tree, this is the theme for you. Ah, one of the classic wedding theme ideas!
2. Rustic And Intimate
Perhaps we should blame (or thank) that sequence in Sleeping Beauty, where Aurora and Prince Philip dance in the middle of the woods, that we find the idea of a rustic wedding so hard to resist. Just picture it, lots of wildflowers, fairy lights, a beautiful woodland wedding venue… and your dreams of marrying Prince Charming in an enchanted forest suddenly come true.
3. A Very Potter Wedding
If you and your other half are among those who are still upset they didn’t get their Hogwarts letter, a Harr Potter themed wedding might be the way to go. Not only you get the perfect excuse to find out which house do your in-laws belong to, but also think of all the Hogwarts-inspired decoration you will get away with! That said, do not go over the top unless you want your reception to look like a 10-year-old’s birthday party.
4. Old Carnival Theme
The nostalgic feeling and the playful atmosphere of a retro carnival theme will delight your guests, who will remember your wedding with the same fondness as they do with their childhood memories of cotton candy and country fairs. An unexpected bonus of the carnival theme is how easy you’ll find to personalise every aspect of the decoration.
5. We Could Be Heroes
Maybe all of us will feel like Wonder Woman on their wedding day, but only the bravest will take it to the next level and make it literal. A superhero themed wedding guarantees endless fun for the comic-obsessed bride and groom, as well as tons of creative opportunities regarding clothing and decor.
6. All You Need Is Love
While the actual Beatles might not be able to make it to your wedding, nothing is stopping you from turning their music into your wedding theme! Just imagine walking down the aisle to All You Need Is Love a la Love Actually, or having your guests arrive to the event on a vintage Volkswagen van. Hey, who said wedding theme ideas can’t be fun!
7. Game Of Thrones With A Happy Ending
Sounds unlikely, but if you and your future husband dream about ruling Westeros together one day, why not start with your wedding? You can go for a Dothraki vibe if you’re saving the Date for the summer, or go full Stark mode if it’s winter.
8. Beads, Flowers, Freedom, Happiness
The difference between a rustic and a bohemian wedding? Replace the enchanted forest atmosphere for a very hippie vibe et voila! This theme has become increasingly popular for its relaxed romanticism (and because boho-inspired wedding dresses are gorgeous). This is one of the most elegant wedding theme ideas!
9. Travel Themed Wedding
You know that scene in Mamma Mia! when Sophie tells Sky she doesn’t want to marry, because she would like them to travel and see the world first? If the protagonist’s decision resonated with you on an oddly personal level, congratulations! You have found the perfect wedding theme for you! Turn maps into invites, show up to the ceremony with your luggage ready for the honeymoon… there’s as many possibilities as places to visit.
10. Traditional And Timeless
The classical and most traditional theme, with soft colours and more than a tad of minimalism, is one that needs to be included in every list of wedding themes. Going for an elegant and simple look is a guarantee that, years after the event, you will not find yourself cringing at your wedding pictures because you no longer like whatever specific topic you decided to focus your Big Day on.
