I love themes because they pull everything together. We are in the begining of planning, but I am doing a nuatical/starfish theme.

 We are using starfish on the website, invitations, Out of Town bags, cookies inside the Out of Town bags, Escort Cards, programs, thank yous, decor, and maybe a few more things.

I guess to a degree it depends on what you mean by theme. We’re doing daisies and butterflies as the main theme, but there are SO many different images we can use. So we’re using them on just about everything (invites, jewelry, cake, card box, centerpieces, decorations, programs, favors, guest book, etc.), but pretty much none of them will be the exact same picture. I found a stamp set that gives me a lot different ones to use. So if you’re talking using the exact same image everywhere, it could get overwhelming. So if you have some variety, you really can’t overuse it. 🙂

I agree with Liz.Smith.  If it’s variations within a theme, then I think it’s okay to use it a bit more, rather than something like a monogram, which you should use more sparingly so it’s not overwhelming. 😀

Changing up the color or size can help, but at some point one image can become repetative.  If it’s a broader theme, use it all you want!  I think the guests will love it!

I dont see a problem with the table number etc.  like they said above it pulls everything together.
