WEDDING THEME IDEAS YOU’LL WANT TO STEAL
Lhia Ubaldo | August 15, 2020
Choosing a wedding theme can take your traditional nuptials from typical to terrific with just a little extra planning.
As you move forward with your wedding planning, the date, venue, dresses and suppliers are all important as you move along. But selecting a theme early on in your planning process helps to shape and craft the look and feel of your entire day including color themes, table and decor ideas along with attire and dresses.
Your wedding is the perfect opportunity for you and your partner to express yourselves and your styles. Are you both obsessed with a bohemian theme? Rustic? Or perhaps something modern? Whatever it is, know that your wedding is the perfect way to show the things you love almost as much as you love each other.
To help ease your stress, we’ve compiled wedding theme suggestions you might want to steal.
MODERN WEDDING THEME
A modern wedding theme should scream “right now!” Sleek lines, dramatic lighting, simplicity, minimalist and décor dripping in crystals or geometric shapes and lines are all staples at modern weddings.
RUSTIC WEDDING THEME
Rustic weddings are always a popular wedding theme choice, especially among couples who want a cool, relaxed vibe on their big day.
Think of wood, lace and flowers, grasses and foliage. This theme needs a really natural colour palette with plenty of organic shapes and textures. Rustic inspired weddings are all kinds of beautiful and can be incredibly romantic!
NATURAL / ORGANIC WEDDING THEME
While we know most people love big, colorful, and wild wedding themes, some also love simple, pared down, and more romantic themes just as much.
Just because an event draws from mother nature doesn’t mean elegance, style, or luxury needs to be sacrificed. Using a color palette of ivories, browns, and greens, while tastefully incorporating earthly objects such as leaves, pinecones, flowers and branches, is the best way to achieve your desired organic ambiance. Go natural!
NAUTICAL WEDDING THEME
Should you and your partner desire a more sea vibe kind of wedding, nautical wedding style is the way to go! It is ideal for couples who love to relax and have a good time — or simply for those who feel most at home with an amazing waterfront view (water signs, anyone?). This wedding theme choice aesthetic is both playful and polished.
FILIPINIANA WEDDING THEME
Who says you can’t go local and promote our Filipino culture? This wedding theme is ideal for those who want to go beyond ordinary. Have your Barong and Filipiniana ready!
BOHEMIAN WEDDING THEME
This is an effortlessly beautiful wedding theme, which incorporate elements of nature along with eclectic mix of natural, rustic, and vintage details into the design.
In the fashion world, bohemian style, also known as boho-chic and hippie-chic, has come to mean free-spirited and draws influences from hippie culture.
You can embrace the theme fully, through everything from their fashion (say hello to airy dresses and flower crowns! We could say, think Coachella!) to their décor (think colorful textiles and cascading bouquets) or subtly, by selecting simple touches here and there!
VINTAGE WEDDING THEME
There is something so charming and romantic about finding treasures from another time and place that make our hearts skip a beat!
Whether it’s a touch of vintage lace to dress up a tablescape or a vintage typewriter paired with love letters for a guest book table, these lovely details become a part of a new story and this sweet round up is sure to inspire yours.
RETRO WEDDING THEME
Retro weddings are vintage’s sassy cousin with plenty of color, pep, and personality! Longing for a look of old Hollywood glam? Enjoy a blast from the past if you pick a Retro theme for your wedding!
WHIMSICAL WEDDING THEME
For brides who are big fans of quirky details, non-traditional elements and bold color combinations, whimsical wedding ideas are totally perfect for them! (We’re thinking of Alice in Wonderland!) Whimsical wedding decorations are so trendy because of the unique and one-of-a-kind touch it gives.
PREPPY WEDDING THEME
Preppy weddings are all about color combos and personalized details, from bow ties to monograms. Go for vibrant hues, lush floral arrangements and patterned table linens. Remember, when you want Preppy, think bright colors.
TROPICAL WEDDING THEME
If you want a wedding inspiration from paradise, we suggest you opt for a Tropical theme! Often when you think of a tropical theme, you imagine going a little overboard on the flamingos, pineapples and coconuts. Why not?
ART DECO WEDDING THEME
You can put sunburst details to geometric fan-inspired motifs all you want but if you don’t add a vintage flair to it, it wouldn’t be an Art Deco theme. Simply put, think of the Great Gatsby theme for your reference!
The most popular color palette for an Art Deco-inspired wedding is black and gold, but any hues can complement a décor style reminiscent of the Jazz Age with the right embellishments.
CLASSIC / TRADITIONAL WEDDING THEME
Classic weddings are more on the formal side. They’re clean (maaliwalas), full of whites and timeless. The venue is usually filled with whitewashed décor, from the linens to the floral arrangements. There may be a metallic or pastel accent, but overall the palette is light and airy with different textures thrown in to mix things up.
