- Wedding: April 2014 - Italian Villa
@vip0802: Something like “yummy Italian food and wine”, lol. We are incorporating wine into our ceremony, so it’s not just during dinner. And I’ve chosen some things because they seem to “go with” Italy, like wine cork placecard holders and faux olives in the centerpieces. But I’m not going to not pick something because “it doesn’t go with our theme!”

@vip0802: Our theme is love grows. The Wedding invitations have a broach on them shaped like a flower, our favors are potted succulents, our napkins will be folded like roses, and theres a few other classy touches that I can’t think of at this time.

- Wedding: September 2014 - Jacksonville Inn
I don’t know that we have a theme, more of a vibe. Our reception is basically an elegant garden dinner party. Our colors are blush, lavender, and cream. We will also have an otter cake topper, because we love otters.

Our theme is starry night… colours are blue/white/gold and we plan to have candles all over to cast a nice glow. We’re getting married under an oak tree, and we got engaged on the cottage dock so we’re bringing those in through invitations with a large oak tree at the top and gold painted tree leaves, and we’re going to use wood from the dock to make things like table numbers and signs.
I agree you don’t need a theme – just bring in things that are meaningful to you! For example, we started dating in high school and used to write notes to each other when we were bored in class, so we’re going to be making “escort cards” by writing notes to each of our guests and folding them up into little notes with their table number and names on the outside.

Our theme is Doctor Who 😀 we are both big fans and are finding some subtle and not so subtle ways to include it in our day. It featured in his proposal and is just so us! 😀

I was hell bent on not having a theme per se, but now that I’m *actually* engaged, I’m finding myself having certain elements that leans towards a theme. Now, I’m calling my wedding a “whimsical tea party” but I’m trying not to be too matchy-matchy. I don’t have specific colors, the girls are picking their own bridesmaid dresses, there will be pops of gold…Honestly, it feels like a mush between tea party/Edwardian/Steampunk/literary/vintage Paris/Wes Anderson…It sounds like a total mess, but I can see where I can pull it off. I just wanted it to feel very authentic and “us” but not feel compelled to get matching linens, napkins, dresses, etc., just because I like the color purple.

My theme is a little unusual as there are multiple themes. The first is is old hollywood glam. The venue is vintage, my wedding dress looks like something a hollywood actress would have worn in the 1940s. There is a lot of bling and I am walking down a red carpet. Another theme is personal touches. The cake topper is personalized, the unity candle, and our wine glasses as well. The decorations are a mix of personalization and butteflies, my third theme. Our fav colors are green and blue, so there is plenty of that with decorations, the cake, flowers etc. There is a mix of different blues and greens. There will be some black and white touches as well. Your wedding can be whatever you want!

Our theme is rustic-romance [more romance, and less rustic, but it sounds better the other way to me]. We aren’t using ANY burlap, I REFUSE! No mason jars, thus far, but who knows? We are using tons of pearls, lace, and CANDLES! Candles, everywhere!
When I started planning, I didn’t really have a theme, I just kind of picked out things I liked, and hope it would work out. I knew I wanted really cute hand paint signs, then I found these really cute chalk board signs that I wanted to use on our buffet, and lace & pearls on everything! Thus, came the theme.

Wedding. I would not do a theme if I were planning one today. In my area they are strictly a children’s party, sweet sixteen, bar mitzvah phenomenon. My guess is that it leaked into weddings as a result of these other type of affairs. They are neither traditional nor necessary.

We did a “vintage peacock” theme. We had peacock feathers, some vintage frames and birdcages for decor and we used royal/sapphire blue and sage as our main colours and brought in some whites/ivories and subtle metallics.

We don’t have a theme, however we did decide if it snows on our wedding day as this winter is never ending we are going to call our theme Frozen, because our colors are navy, tiffany blue and silver. Lol

@vip0802: we are having many Star Wars elements. I wouldn’t call it a theme, though. We are just doing “us” and hoping that it shows!

Woodsy! Exposed beams and brick, outdoor photos, lots of baby’s breath and wooden centerpieces. We love camping and the outdoors and we aren’t very formal – it’s a good representation of us as a couple
