Of course it’s fine.  I think most of us don’t have themes, to be honest.

Unless there is a theme that you REALLY love and want to do, I think elegant and romantic are themes enough in themselves! Also, I’m a firm believer in the theme simply being what both you and your fiancee love – the best weddings are the ones where you can see the couples’ personalities in their details!

A color combo is a theme even if some people choose not to call it one. A theme is not necessary but some couples choose to have one to make everything look cohesive instead of a random mismash. Do whatever suits you best.

We aren’t really having a specific “theme” either. I think the fact you want a romantic setting is enough of a theme anyway. We’re doing a casual, simple theme – not really a specific theme, more of a vision. Good luck planning 🙂

@Ember78: Agreed. The colors you choose set the mood for the wedding and that’s a “theme”  in itself. Perhaps since you’re getting married in Oct, you could go with fall colors?

You definitely don’t need a theme! I think romantic and elegant are great words to help you pull together the wedding you are imagining.  When someone asks what your theme is just say you are going for an elegant/romantic feel 🙂

I got pestered so much about not having a theme. I finally just started calling it rustic.

I don’t really have a specific theme either.  I didn’t want to get stuck in a box either because I love so many different things.  People ask me all the time what my theme is.  I like romantic and elegant.  And to me that is broad enought to include whatever I like.  As long as everything you choose flows together, I don’t think a specific theme is necessary.

Weddings don’t require themes. I’m using the peacock motif in terms of color, but I’m not going all out with it.

I think the colour combo is a theme aswell, I don’t think it should be themed with style etc if it’s not your preference. Just do what you want, and if they ask, tell them it’s this color and this color theme. Good luck!

Nope, a “theme” isn’t necessary at all. It does help to know how you want the day to feel and look, so that it can be cohesive, but even that is not a requirement. I think it’s more important to have priorities than it is to have a “theme”. Know what matters most to you, your Fiance, and whomever else is contributing $$ to the shindig, and start there. Sometimes, after making several decisions, you’ll see a theme emerging and you can just go with it instead of forcing something that doesn’t feel natural.

Of course. I did not have a theme…
