So the amazing thing about the internet is the endless amount of options and variations of ideas we are presented with! Now we have thousands of wedding blogs, websites, and search engines to help us plan the big day. This could get a tad overwhelming since most brides love A LOT of different things. Hopefully, you have heard of this great website called “Pinterest.” 😉 Now is the time to use Pinterest to your advantage! If you are having a hard time nailing down a theme or consistent ideas, it’s so easy to create a couple different boards that you can contrast and compare themes to! Here are some wedding themes I love and used my Pinterest to compare them:
Industrial Wedding- Exposed brick, pipes, minimal florals, mismatched chairs, think, “Less is more.” This style allows the venue space to be a blank canvas and for the decor to ‘paint’ on the simplicity of the walls. Get creative and think out of the box; industrial weddings are all about turning nothing into something to really catch your eye like that wooden crate turned floral chandelier on one of my pins.
Old World Wedding- Every last detail is completely ornate yet delicate at the same time. (Make’s me think of Rose from Titanic: extremely intricate and complicated, yet she had the most graceful beauty.) That’s the look you’re going for with an Old World Wedding! Bring in old books, maps, your grandmother’s china, old passports, etc. It’s in the tiniest of details that bring this style to life.
Bohemian Wedding- Be one with nature with lots of wildflowers, tall grass, trees, and maybe even opt for no shoes! This type of wedding is made to look effortless (even though there is much effort applied). Let your hair and decor fly with the wind with ribbon in trees, relaxed fit dresses, the more ‘thrown together’ the better!
Glam Wedding- Time to get your Gatsby on: glitter, sparkle, spot lights, shine…there is no limit here! You want glitz, lace, pearls, AND feathers? GO FOR IT. Love the idea of sparkly bottle of champagne as a favor.
Western Wedding- Western weddings are so fun and cutesy but can still bring that glam to a wedding! Using boots as a floral vase and a symbol like a horseshoe for all your paper goods gives the western vibe a cohesiveness.
Tuscan Wedding- There is something so romantic and simple about olive branches, speaking Italian, and long tables with a view of the sunset. Wine, pasta, and food food food everywhere!
Timeless, Classic Wedding- All weddings are beautiful; and of course when it is your own it is absolutely unforgettable. For those who love the classic looks of white, lace, splashes of pinks and gold these timeless elements can last forever. Candles and simple colors are easy on the eye and draw all the attention to the Bride and Groom.
Bright Wedding- Colors are a great feature for any wedding! They make statements and add pops that bring a fun element without saying, “Welcome to Wonderland.” To incorporate these pops of colors, focus on a core group of 4-5 colors and put them in your accents. (i.e. flowers, escort cards, ribbons, shoes, etc.) The rest of your decor can be a backdrop for these gorgeous hues to shine!
Being engaged is one of the most testing times in decision making. So many decisions are made (hopefully with your fiancé) in a short amount of time, it’s tempting to want to second guess yourself. But don’t look back! Choosing a central theme and gathering all of your elements around it, make your day that much more unique and memorable and help push you to keep moving forward to the big day! Happy Planning!
