Just because youre venue is by the beach doesnt mean it has to be a beach theme. Start by thinking what color bridesmaid dresses you want, what color flowers, what is the style of your dress? What are things you want in your wedding? Its hard to suggest themes for you since I do not know your style.

We made our decision for our theme based on traveling out of the country together. Think about things you & your Fiance love, or something the two of you have a connection to/ with; many adorable themes are stemmed from something like that.

To play devil’s advocate: do you need a theme? Is ‘wedding’ not enough?

@cheerful I agree! we definitely aren’t doing a theme…. we just picked colors and went from there.  It’s amazing how things fall into place with the small guidance of a few choice hues 🙂 Good luck!

ohhh I don’t think you NEED a theme, especially if you’re indifferent about lots of details, since you said you like simple things, just do things you  like. Everything doesn’t necessarily have to match up perfectly. Just do whatever you like! Or pick something you love, like a certain ceterpeice, and try to decorate off of that one item.

I agree with the other pps.  You don’t have to have a theme but find one or two things you like and use those to be your starting point.  My brother’s wedding my SIL didn’t have a theme. She just liked the cobalt blue color. So we went with that and found vases in cobalt blue and dresses.  She then accented things with their initial.  She never set out to do the initial theme it just evolved on its own and wasn’t over done. She had it on the cake, floral piece over the door to the venue and invites.

On a side note, don’t expect your bridal party to help you pick out wedding items.  I’ve been a Bridesmaid or Best Man in 10 weddings now and I’ve never been involved in the fine details of the wedding planning just took part in throwing showers/bachelorette party and picking out the dresses.  So please don’t get discourgaged about not having help from them.

Good luck!

I don’t think you need to decide on a theme either, it will probably evolve as you start choosing things. After choosing a venue, clothing for everyone and making invitations it turns out our wedding is a sort of clean, modern style in blue and green. I certainly had no idea this was how it would look when we started out, but it feels very natural and very “us”. So don’t worry too much 🙂

Don’t do a theme!!! Unless you feel very strongly for something, don’t do one.

I don’t have one.  Orginally I thought I wanted the colors pink and green until I saw how terrible they would look at our reception site.  Now, I’m basing everything off of the bridesmaid dress color I picked.

If there is one thing I have learned from my wedding planning and from all of these wonderful ladies on this board, it is to do whatever YOU want for your wedding.  If you want to incorporate some sort of individual type thing that means something to you and you Fiance, do it.  If you want a theme, do it.
