pagingDrLudwig:  We aren’t having a theme just a color pallet. Could you just not have a theme and use your favorite colors?

I’ve seen ideas where people will write up things about the bride and groom and frame them and put a different “fact” on each table. You could maybe just write up little things about your different jobs and hobbies and interests….one for each table. It would be conversation starters and get people to mingle to look at the other facts about the bride and groom on each table.

The first thing that came to mind to me was Love Sick but, idk how that would transcribe into a theme … I agree with poster above about having a color scheme and add your personality in the small touches doesn’t need to be a full blown medical theme … Some silly things that come to mind are drink stirrers that look like thermometers (I’m sure somebody makes them), more on the alcohol but, test tube Jell-O shots or any other treat you can think of for inside, stemware that look like beakers, place cards that have names on band aids , love sick/  prescription for love candy bar  with quirky names for each candy and they could use prescription bags to collect it in, cake pops that have tounge depressers as sticks .. Etc. I wouldn’t do it all but brain stomr and pick just a couple things that hint toward it without making it all about it otherwise it may look like a little kids theme party

I don’t think you reall need a theme per se, but just little things here and there that are unique. It’s easy to go too theme-y. I would first pick your colors and go from there. Love the idea to use test tubes. What about “mad libs” at the tables for guests to fill out that have fun facts about your interests? Or a guest book that looks like on order form or prescription pad?

I agree that you don’t need a theme, unless you’re on the TV show “Four Weddings,” and they judge you on it. Color schemes, formal vs informal, etc., is all you need; theme choices could get pricey and look a bit juvenile.

When I think of theme I think like rustic, vintage, romantic, glitter,  and like the other bee’s said a color palette.  Unless you absolutely love something so much like some will do a Disney theme but really it’s not overwhelming because its for adults. They will have like a cake topper of the Disney character.  Or if your FI loves cars maybe you can do a grooms cake.
