I’m having a difficult time deciding themes. Well, thats not exactly true. I want a Maine agriculture themed wedding- rustic, outdoors, antiques, lobster, whoopie pies etc. I’m from Maine and my fiance’s family owned a home near where the wedding will be held. Its an equally significant place for us.
My issue is that my fiance is very much into the music industry. To not incorporate some sort of music theme (I think) would overlook a lot of his personality. He’s chosen the band but I feel as if we should add more music elements to the wedding but I fear that it will throw off the entire agriculture theme I’ve created.
I’m not sure whether I feel guilty that most of the theme is what I want or not. But I do think that the point of this celebration is to celebrate our personalities, love, and families. In our lives music and Maine blend well, but how would that translate into a wedding?
Thoughts, suggestions, experiences? Thanks!

Hire some people to wear lobster costumes, and make them sing the whole time. Music and Maine!
Seriously, though…don’t worry too much. Just make it look the way you want, and maybe in your favors have something that has to do with both Maine and Music. LIKE A SINGING AND DANCING LOBSTER lol.

A singing and dancing lobster sounds pretty dang awesome to me 🙂 Ala the song scene in ” My best friends wedding” Hey if it was good enough for Julia Roberts, right? : D
Seriously I wouldn’t worry about it. A wedding doesn’t need a theme or for everything to reflect the couple. No one will put as much thought into it or probably even tie in everything together, that I promise you. Do what you love and it will be fine.

This couple had a rustic wedding but incorporated music as he is a musician.
She added sheets of music under the centerpieces and even glued sheets of music to the aisle runner. I couldn’t find a good pic of that.
use sheet music for confetti cones
incorporate music in the boutonnieres- these ones used “volume knobs” but you could use guitar pics, miniature guitars, sheet music,enamel brooches with a sheet music print etc
