Creating a less than average wedding theme? If you have a really imaginative theme, it’s easy to get caught up in over the top decorations and overall style. However, there are really tasteful and classy ways to add a little bit of understated wedding style to a fun theme.

Want to create a great theme, but not sure what route to go? Mixing traditional wedding styles with contemporary fun themes are very popular. Consider these themes and style ideas for your own wedding:

1) Seaside Nuptials: Beach weddings are among the more popular weddings that take place outside of a church or house of worship. This beach theme can be incorporated into everything with just the right touch from a seashell and starfish adorned wedding cake to seahorse decorations, sandy decorations, and other nautical elements. Natural seashell jewelry or hair pieces added to a traditional wedding dress and tropical flowers instead of roses also add to the theme.

2) Holiday “I do’s”: Valentine’s Day is a notoriously popular holiday wedding theme, and is generally easy to add Valentine’s Day style to with hearts, red, pink and white. Add a little extra fun by making your invitations look like Valentine’s, putting conversation hearts at the reception tables and having lots of red roses.

Add a little sprig of holly or mistletoe to your hair to spruce up your Christmas style. Halloween can also be a fun theme, and as far as style goes, you can add candy corns, fall leaves and even spider webs to a traditional style wedding.


3) Personal interest theme: Do you and your partner love to ride motorcycles? Consider adding a little leather to your wedding lace. Love western music or a country lifestyle? Add boots or a vest to your wedding attire or ride in on horseback. Consider adding elements of whatever you and your soon to be spouse enjoy doing together to give your wedding style extra flair.

4) Floral Extravaganza: If you want your wedding to be a flowery affair, have your ceremony take place in a beautiful botanical garden. Adorn you and your bridesmaid’s hair with crowns of flowers, and add a floral motif to your cake, invitations and overall décor. Be careful that you don’t overdo it though, and ask those that will be handling real flowers if they have allergic reactions.

5) Romantic Evening: Consider creating a thoroughly romantic event with a romantic style for you and look for your ceremony and reception. Cascading curls or an upswept hairdo matched with a princess-like ball gown wedding dress and tiara is the ultimate romantic style. Add a little romance to your reception with candlelight, violin music and Renaissance style decorations.

Once you have decided on your theme wedding, creating a style to go along with it is easy and fun. Just remember that less is more, and even the smallest touches add flair to a classy event.

Choosing the Colors to Mark Your Wedding Day

The colors you choose for your wedding would make a great impact on the way your wedding turns out. You have to give great thought to the color of your bridesmaids’ and the rest of the entourage’s apparel. You also have to think about your color scheme at the church and at the wedding reception. The objective is to make your wedding elegant, and the key to attaining that is color harmony.

Select your main color

When you get down to selecting your color theme, you and your partner must sit down with your wedding coordinator. First off, you would have to select the main color for the occasion. The popular colors for weddings right now are pinks and other pastel colors. You may go with the flow or you can choose a more solid color if you wish to set your wedding apart from the rest.

The main criterion that you should folow in your main color choice is taste and preference. Choose the color that you and your partner like. Of course, you can also give consideration to the season you’re getting married in. You can also use black in weddings now, but be sure not to overdo it because your wedding day could take on the somber air of a funeral.

Select your color accents

The main color will be the color that holds everything together in your wedding. However, you cannot use this same color everywhere from your bridesmaids’ dresses to your reception decorations. That would be overdoing it and would be letting your wedding entourage literally fade into the draperies. Choose one or two other colors to enhance and highlight your wedding color.

After selecting your main color, choose shades of the same color as accents for a monochromatic, elegant and unified color scheme. If you chose pink as your wedding color for example, you can try experimenting with various shades of pink like hot pink and carnation pink.

Monochromatic isn’t the only way to go, though. Instead of picking shades from the same color group, you can actually choose complementing colors to set your main color off. Use the color wheel in picking your color combinations so that you can be sure the colors you finally settle on would truly complement your wedding color.

As a final word, whatever color and color accents you choose for your wedding day, just make sure that they will definitely showcase you and mark your day.
