Our wedding day is the first day of Summer next year. So we are going with summer alcohol drinks, sun flowers (not overboard on them), summer ale beers…etc… nothing spectacular.

My theme is elegant woodland fairy tale with vintage touches. Not Disney fairy tale, but more like brothers Grimm. I love fairies and the woods so it kind of grew from there. My family lives on a gorgeous piece of property in the woods so it works out perfect. I can’t wait!

@smrlovingrl: 

You could make your theme ” A State of Grace” or “A State of Matrimony” or “State of the Heart”. I vote for State of the Heart.

You could make drink coasters using maps outlining the states where you are from

Great for Gifts, Bad for the Bank Account :  wedding decor philadelphia Il 430x028 il_430x028

you could use a map as the backing for your table numbers

ditto for using maps to make containers for anything you are tossing or for favors

you can get map shaped confetti

These are just a few ideas.

You don’t need to overuse the map paper- it’s just a way to incorporate the “state”.

It also gives you a jumping off point for invitations etc

@AmyFarrahFowler:  +1000

I think themed weddings are a new thing. At least, I don’t remember going to one before the past couple years. It helps some people focus and tie everything together, but ain’t nothin’ wrong with “We’re in love & getting married” as the sole focus.

That said… mine is “Vaguely Literary With a Side of Geek-Chic and a Drizzel of Crafty DIYness” Alternate title: “Nerd Love: Reloaded”.

@smrlovingrl:  We are doing a whimsical beach theme (seashells, starfish, sand) with some hidden tropical vibe. I really liked the colors aqua and coral together, and it seemed appropriate to go with the beach theme 🙂 Plus I grew up right by the Pacific NW beaches and our venue has a view of the town lighthouse/ferry/beach.

Okay, so our theme is styled after the 50’s and 60’s, high fashion “Mad Men” clothing style. We are also turning our stage into a theater stage, (adding red curtains and what not). Which in turn is gearing it more towards cinema and film making. (I’m an amatuer film maker.) So some aspects of the Pixar film UP are going to be included, which is a big part of our relationship history. Oh goodness, I know Hayoa Miyazaki will be thrown in somehow, and a bunch of our favorite films, even if they aren’t wedding appropriate. We are both huge photographers, so that’ll be incorporated as well. I think we’ll have our collection on display and available for use. We are huge gamers so our wedding cake is going to be video game consoles. Oh! And we were engaged at Oktoberfest which is a german beer festival so I’m sure that will be included as well.

 

I really don’t know. I’m just going to add a bunch of random stuff together and not care. 😀

Our theme is Modern Vintage (with a little shabby chic). I actually saw the words “Modern Vintage” in a bridal mag. and I decided to look it up and ended up finding some pictures and then went from there.

 

This will be what our tables will be similar to.

@smrlovingrl:  Absolutely! I would try to find maps that incorporate your colors. That should be fairly easy as lakes and oceans are always blue, and orange is used for highways or state llines or somoething.

When I planned my first wedding (2007), no one really had a theme, just colours. It’s crazy how things change!

My theme is peacock feathers! The peacock is a beautiful animal, but I am just using the feathers. I just love the vibrant colors of the peacock eye. My bridal party will be in midnight blue dresses and I might be doing peacock fans. Just an example of what I am doing!
