Hello Bees! I always hear about brides when they go to plan their wedding they have a theme or colors that they want to incorporate throughout the whole wedding. Are any of you not doing that? I do not necessarily have a theme in mind. I guess you could use the words simple, romantic, and beautiful to describe my vision, but as far as a “theme” I do not have one. To be honest, I don’t really want one either. I just want to incorporate things that I like and that I think go with one another. Any one else feel this way?

We aren’t having a theme. I am just getting things I like 🙂

My theme is ‘fun wedding’. I’m not a huge fan of themes and think it can cause more stress than anything else. Sure, I have my colors, and I have my general ‘feel’ that I’m looking for, but that’s about it. 🙂

ok great! i wasn’t sure if i was the only one who thought this way lol. i want my bridesmaids to wear navy blue and the groomsmen to wear khaki suits and a navy blue tie, but other than that i am not going to incorporate navy blue into everything. i do not want a matchy wedding. I just want what looks beautiful and simple. to me, that is just having mason jars with fresh cut flowers in them on tables and maybe mason jars with candles in them. and that is it for the decor.

I don’t have a “theme” either, just colors. You’re not the only one!

No theme for us either. We have colors and a vision for the “feel” that we’re looking for but no specific theme.

Oh, absolutely. I don’t even have “colors”, and I don’t really plan to. I might try to unify decorations in a kind of fall-ish direction, and that’ll do it.

We had colors, but no theme. Although afterwards, my SIL blogged about the fact that we got engaged on a cruise and we did a water theme since our colors were black and blue. Umm, never thought about it, so apparently there was a theme afterall!

I dont have a theme per say(other than wedding haha), but we definitely have a vibe going and are using roughly the same colour palette developed by the highly scientifical process of “hey is this same blue/green/yellow?” “no not really but it is close enough.”
this highly scientifical process is proven to be low stress as long as you dont give a crap about matchy matchy matchy-ness.
Our vibe is super cheap summer wedding. haha but seriously, our vibe is kind of campy-rustic-lake (tone mostly set by venue), with smatterings of wood elements and sprinklings of somewhat whimsical paper diy decorations.
Our food has a theme, sweet & savoury. Does that count? Do I win at weddings now? 😛

Our theme was “Jewish wedding” but as it has been getting closer we’ve been adding a lot of stuff with pictures of the Philadelphia LOVE statue on it (we live steps away from it) …so that’s become a minor theme

I kept wanting a certain theme… but the more I plan and the more I find things, it just turns out to be a big mixture of all different types of themes really. The same goes with my colors…I try to settle on certain things but there are just too many things that I love! But overall, I would say it is laid back/country and that is about as “theme” as I will get 🙂

Every bride has colours so blue and gold isn’t a theme and to my knowledge “traditional Greek Orthodox wedding” isn’t a theme, it is how the Greek culture has a standard wedding

I have some colors in mind, and we want the wedding to be fun – that’s about it. When I tried on dresses, the consultant asked me the theme, and I pretty much stammered out “uhh, wedding? love?” until she lectured me on how very important themes are. I decided I didn’t want to buy my dress from her!
