Hi Bees – I’m searching for the perfect theme for our venue. It’s in a convention center over looking a lake with floor to ceiling windows. It’s a summer wedding with colors either going to be black tuxes with champange dresses or grey tuxes with a grey lillac dress. I’ve looked for lake wedding themes but it’s all natuical (navy blues, etc.) themes and it just doesn’t seem to fit. Any cute ideas for themes, that don’t involve tons of bright colors?

We are doing black gold and white.
Tablecloths will be white underlay, gold sequin overlay, white napkins tied with black ribbon. White charger plates with menu laying on top printed with gold ink on black paper. All white flowers on top of tall clear trumpet shaped vase filled with water and floating cystal and 3 sets of 3 votives around centerpiece.
couple’s table and cake table will be solid to the floor gold sequin. Elegant look for any setting
A spin on anutical – red/white/blue theme – using navy sequin cloths here/there – tie napkins with colored cord tied with nautical knot

Oliver421: With the colors you are using, and the colors of your venue, I suggest “Summer NIghts”.
I would stay away from the “Enchanted Forest and Midsummer Night’s Dream” at your venue, and play up the elegant aspect.
You could use metallic dragonflies or butterflies for placecards
incorporate fairy lights where you can- the ceiings might be too low but you could wrap the pillars and perhaps use them in your centerpieces. They have battery operated and solar fairy lights.
fairy berries will float and give you that moving firefly look in your centerpieces
you can add some to a branch centerpiece
and use a larger version of the centerpiece for our escort cards or as decor on the cake or gift table.
you can also use fairy lights in your vases, but in your case I would use a clear glass vase in a more elegant shape- mason jars would not work with this theme- use all white flowers
If you keep the decor to metallics, white and mini lights , it can be summer but elegant.
