If you have a color scheme, you’re just fine.  theme’s are great, but the color palette will do you more good in the long run.  Enjoy the process and don’t get too hung up on the details!

No way.  You don’t have to.

My “theme” is “we’re getting married.” Wink

Sending you lots of good luck for your hydrangeas. They’re beautiful. 🙂

I didn’t even have a color scheme let alone a theme and it looked just fine. We just stuck to neutral everything.

I don’t think you need a theme, maybe just a common link and your colors will do that.  From there I don’t think anything matters really.  Just pick stuff you like and it will all come together.  Good luck on the flowers, I love hydrangeas!!!  If anything you can use what you grow and buy some from a florist to fill in where needed:)

Fiance asked what our theme is – I told him it’s “wedding.”

As long as you have a semi cohesive color scheme, you’ll be fine.

I definitely went for a theme of, “We’re getting married.”  It worked out fine!

Well Megan, that’s nice. You already have something. I have no theme, one color and no DIY because, well, I’m not crafty (I am kinda crafty because I’m a lawyer but … you know what I mean, ha ha) So, it all depends on you. You are getting married and plunking down a whole **itload of money, enjoy yourself Cool

I have no idea when or why this whole theme craze started but I dont get it. The theme of our wedding is “love and marriage” and yes we have a color scheme that we are loosely following. Not everything is the exact same shade of green or yellow and there is also a little bit of light blue thrown in the mix!

I had no theme. And I’m so glad I didn’t have one. It meant I wasn’t worried about whether or not something I wanted to do “fit” in with the theme.

OMG, I’m really glad you posted about this because I didn’t WANT a theme, but people just GAVE me one anyway!! The STD that Darling Husband picked out had lovebirds on it, so that became our theme for everything. The shower invites, the gifts and my Mom even got a lovebird ice sculpture for our cocktail hour. I mean, it’s not that I don’t like lovebirds as a theme, but that’s not what I wanted for us. I just wanted our colors: Navy, dark pink and silver, a full open bar adn a great band. I thought that was theme enough, but others did not agree!
