I’m calling mine “formal garden party.”  We’re having the ceremony outside at a town park, and the reception at a country club.  The colors are pink and green and we’re doing daisies for the flowers.  Favors/escort cards/other decorations are going to be outdoors-y/garden-like.

We don’t really have a theme other than a general “rustic harvest party” sort of thing.  We’ve pretty much been using whatever works.  I wouldn’t stress about everything matching perfectly too much.  Just go with what you like and it will all come together.

We have a monogram that we’re tying into everything…and I mean everything. It’s getting a little out of control, but at least it’s a simple design!

Funny, I was just trying to come up with a “theme.”  Like you WDWBride, I have a ton of magazine clippings, ideas, etc. but no real “theme name” for what I want to have.  I’m thinking to just go with words to convey the event — clean, modern, understated elegance.

Our overall theme is “romance and play,” every decision we made was based on those two words, is this romantic? is this playful? we asked ourselves. We both have a love of literature as well (he’s an English teacher, I’m a writer) so we have that in there, too. Our colors are blue and lavender. It might be nice to pick some words, what kind of feeling you two give off as a couple or what you want your guests to leave feeling–and then go from there. Everything that you do doesn’t have to be matchy matchy to a certain image or color.

For us we’re going a lake wedding at a rustic lodge, so I guess that’s the theme.  I tried doing something beachy and bought all the stuff for it, but I think it’ll look too out of place.

I don’t think you need to have a theme or an overall look. But I think it definitely helps finalize a lot of the details if it comes down to making decisions. When we first started planning, we both didn’t want a “theme” because that sounded too “Timmy’s Fifth Birthday Party” to us. But we did want an overall look and feel. We decided on “Modern meets vintage garden party.” It’s a mix of a lot of elements like modern floral arrangements with vintagey decor around the room.

We don’t really have a theme…just a sort of “feel” we are shooting for, which is sort of casual, natural and earthy. The venue is a lodge in a park that has a stone exterior and wood interior. Our colors are gold, brown, and green with pops of purple. We’ve got all kinds of baskets of different materials and weaves to hold things like wrapped silverware, handfans, ect. We found woven bamboo chargers that we are using to make cake plates. I plan on using paper lanterns of different shades of brown (luna bazaar). We plan on sprucing up with lots of potted plants all over the place. The centerpieces are potted bamboo in clear bubble vases with river rocks.

To each their own, but I personally don’t like anything too matchy. I prefer spaces that have a subtle cohesiveness.

My wedding is very classic and traditional with simple, rustic touches (like wooden lettering and simple black and white photos in wooden frames)
