Congratulations – you’re getting married! Planning your wedding will be one of the most memorable, stressful, confusing, nerve-wracking, and enjoyable things that you will ever do. There is so much to think about when planning your special day, where do you begin?

All memorable weddings have a theme, whether it’s full-on or subtle touches; often defined by colour (your favourite), era (do you love the glamour of the 1920s or the madness of the 80s?) or your chosen venue, the theme sets the overall feel of your day. Choosing your theme is a good starting point as flowers, favours, music, and decorations can be chosen to fit in with whatever theme you choose. Websites such as are good for looking for decorations, from vintage, shabby chic, and rustic to disco or even Vegas themes, as well as favours, accessories, and everything in between!

Wedding themes are usually the first thing (dress aside) a bride thinks about. Do you want full-on fairytale-like Prince William and Kate Middleton, vintage like Kate Moss and Jamie Hince or pure indulgence a la David and Victoria Beckham?

Struggling to pin down your theme? Bridal Musings has some tips to help you out, probably the most important being that your theme should be about you as a couple. Don’t get hung up on what’s currently on-trend or considered stylish – does it reflect you? The great thing about wedding themes is that there are no rules, they are personal and unique to the bride and groom, and their lifestyle. Your wedding should have little nods to your personalities throughout – it’s your chance to show the world what you’re about so don’t hold back. Want something a little off-the-wall? Wedding Ideas has some great suggestions for couples wanting something that will set them apart from the crowd – circus theme anyone?

Here are some ideas on what to consider when thinking about your wedding theme:

  • Your interests and hobbies – what do you enjoy doing as a couple? If you both love literature why not incorporate parts of your favourite books?
  • How you met or how you got engaged. If your partner proposed in the woods, how about an enchanting woodland theme?
  • Your style. Are you retro, contemporary, eclectic…
  • Things that are special to you – does a particular animal, flower or song have a special meaning?
  • Your venue – your theme and venue should complement each other. If you’ve chosen a countryside barn wedding, an English tea party-inspired theme would be perfect
  • Your budget – themes can be adapted to suit most budgets, but don’t choose something that’s going to be too hard for you to achieve

The most important thing to remember when choosing your theme and planning your wedding, is to have fun with it. Keep the big picture in mind. It’s your big day, a celebration of your love for each other, a celebration of the rest of your lives together – enjoy!
