When you’re getting married, it’s understandable that you might want something special, something a bit different and something personal to you. If you’re not quite sure what to do though, or perhaps you know what you’d like to do but not sure how to execute it for a wedding, then take some inspiration from this article. Remember that you can have whatever you want so you can choose a theme as simple as your favourite colour or as specific as a favourite decade or movie.So, what could it be? Do you have a favourite time period? For example, a theme such as Ancient Greece is romantic, classy, elegant, and straightforward to do. You can decorate your venue with grapes and gold strewn throughout and dress your ushers up like Spartans.You could go for something such as movie-inspired theme, like The Great Gatsby which could work really and would be a wedding photographers dream. It combines one of the most memorable books and films with all of the glitz and glamour of the 1920s.
You could opt for something inspired by TV. Are you a Game of Thrones fan? Your tables, invitations, and any other decorations can follow the various “houses” of the realm complete with colour scheme and emblems. The bride, groom, and guests all get to choose from a variety of long flowing lace, leathers, furs, and Celtic knot hairstyles. Oh – and you get to get married in a castle!
A Harry Potter theme could be a lot of fun, with tall candles and red napkins defining the dining hall, the houses are easy table names, and there’s plenty of room for wands and golden snitches.If you’re a big fan of something like Harry Potter or Star Wars, then you probably don’t need much advice. With Star Wars there are also tonnes of ideas from hanging glow in the dark lightsabers from the ceiling, walking down the aisle to the imperial march, and dancing the night away to the Cantina Song. You could even have your ushers direct your guests to the Dark Side of the Light Side.
A rock concert or festival idea will give you loads of options for being creative. You can print your tickets, post your lineup, and tell your guests to expect a lot of loud music, dancing, and street food.
Plan something that you and your guests will look forward to. Have an interactive wedding where your guests can experience something like never before. Let them know what’s to come and make sure they know that they’ll need energy and enthusiasm to appreciate what’s in store for them. Also, if you need to, you can give them suggestions and examples for outfits as well as a basic itinerary for the day so that they know how to pace themselves. If you want to make your wedding a huge event, then go for it? Why not? You only plan to do it once so make it something that you and your guests will never forget.
