- Wedding: October 2011 - Bed & Breakfast
Our theme was “Eat, Drink & Be Married.” The theme created itself because our reception was centered around really good alcohol and food. (We served a 4 course plated dinner with wine and beer pairings.) Our colors were ivory, silver, grey, black, and dark purple. The colors were less about the theme and more about the colors I love.

We have a sort-of (really broad) theme and colors!
Colors: warm neutral spectrum (ivory, champagne, nude) and plum as a bold accent color.
Theme: I say “rustic” a lot for ease, but by that I don’t mean mason jars and mismatched vintage plates or napkins and hay, I mean more like woodsy elegant. Lots of flowers, our vases are made of wood with bark, I am doing quite a bit of burlap (I don’t even care that it’s overdone), some DIY, lavender, twine, candles, some glam elements, matchy-matchy.

Our venue is a bird & nature reserve so our theme is “Love is in the air”
We also wanted to incorporate our travels so each table will be named after a significant city/country where we have been together. Our centerpieces will be DIY hot air balloons along with little figurine birds native to the country, and maybe a photo of the two of us with a little anecdote.
Our color is a shade of turquoise/tiffany blue symbolic of the ocean where I proposed.

well we are having a private ceremony just the two of us but I am putting together an overall “look” or feeling & we are going to have a table & chairs set up with a small cake, memory box, mason jars, etc etc. So the overall feeling is vintage country charm. I am using various shades of pinks(from very pale pink to bright pink, creams, burlap, & the stationary will be using chocolate brown also). We are getting married under a pergloa at this beautiful garden that the officiant owns & rents out for weddings.
Here is like a few things I’ve started working on from the D.I.Y. side. Even though we aren’t having a traditional wedding I still wanted to be able to decorate and have traditional decorations.
Here is the very beginning of a flower & brooch bouquet. I’ve since added more flowers and brooches & I am going to use a lot more. The whole bouquet is a form bought at Wal-Mart and I wrapped the handle in bubble wrap (it’s what I had!) and then burlap, twine, & lace. The stars hanging down are actually earrings but stars are my favorite thing in the whole world.

cake stand i already owned. i got it at homegoods for a great deal & i am always baking so i bought one of the last ones they had.

Theme “wedding” does not make any sense to me, since that can mean anything. Like I’ve been to different weddings that were all “wedding” but some were more elegant than others, some were morning weddings and Some were just dinner receptions. Even if they didn’t nessesarily have a specific theme, they all had a distinct style.

- Wedding: November 2016 - Highfield House, Stanley, Tasmania
we are going all-out 1860s, but with a lot of Doctor Who inspired details. Our colours are going to be violet, ivory and Tardis blue, with a few hints of silvery grey.

Our theme was “wedding” 🙂
we did colors, but only to tie things together – and it was really just one color. Both DH and I are cool color people. Couldn’t do green as the wedding photos were in a garden. My BFF had blue so that was out. Purple it was! We really only used it for the color of the BM’s dresses and some of the ink colors.

Our ‘theme’ would be semi-handmade/pretty/flowy/natural/love (: We’re doing a cake and champagne reception in the afternoon after a morning wedding and it’ll be in my parents’ field. Our colours are blush, pale peach, ivory, and light gold.

Our colors are navy blue and yellow, and we have a very loose theme of “Good times, sunshine and summertime” just to describe the casual, relaxed, bright summery feel we are going for (anyone here a Faith Hill fan? 🙂 ). We will be doing bbq, a s’mores bar, cupcakes, a characture artist, backyard games like cornhole at an inn in Maine. The navy and yellow just look bright and fun to me without being too fancy. We also have a steady theme of chalkboards going on in our cucpcake stand, ceremony baskets, s’mores bar, table numbers, signs, etc.
Here are some of my diy’s and some pics of our decor/venue!
Has since been finished (ran out of ribbon for the supports) but this pic shows the color best in the sunlight!
Bad nighttime lighting but the baskets for our ceremony
Our reception will be outside in a tent with plain white table clothes but this was just a very quick mock up
s’mores bar jars (some)
Hope this helps!!!

We don’t have a theme and we barely have colors. Fiance wanted to have blue in his suit so we are going with that for bridesmaid dresses also. Our centerpieces are all sorts of spring colors as we are having spring flowering bulbs. We are also sort of minimalist in our decorating and won’t be having tons of knick knacks or signs or anything like that. Just lots of flowers, lots of food, and loads of booze.
