are you having a wedding with a “theme” or are you using something as inspirations?
My wedding will be in a 1020’s building, and I opted for vintage inspired dresses and more classic choices for colors etc. but I hate it when vendors say “oh so it is a vintage theme”
I like to call it vintage flavored. I am not hosting a costume party!
I think weddings with a theme are really cool though, I just couldn’t commit to one.

I’m not nearly organized enough to have everything be matchy matchy and fit one theme exactly. I’m just hoping that everything ends up being cohesive enough to give people a general “feel”.

My FI and I both love the idea of having a Masquerade themed wedding. Theme during the ceromony will be very subtle, but we want to have an actual Shakespearan style Masquerade ball for the reception. We’ll hand out masks as party favors so the guests are obliged to arrive in actual costumes. Trying to do this on the tiny budget we set though is going to be real challenge.

- Wedding: March 2010 - Calamigos Ranch
Theme would have required too much forethought. I went for inspirations because it didn’t force me to be so consistent. 😉

We have a “garden wedding” theme going on. It’s not like I sat down one day and said “OMG, we need to have a theme! Let’s have a garden wedding where everything will be all matchy-matchy!”. It was quite the opposite in fact. The garden wedding theme just materialized over time. We’re getting married in a garden, our favors will be little seed kits for planting flowers, our place cards are going to sit on a bed of wheat grass, and we’re going to have lots and lots of flowers. Voila. Theme.
