So I am busy planning while Fiance isn’t really interested in the details. I have been imagining a vintage feel, 1940’s. But really am not themeing anything (Old country church for ceremony, Italian restaurant for reception).
Me and my girls are wearing trumpet silhouettes which feel 40’s to me, and my cake is monochromatic with simple swags and edging, reminiscent of 40’s. Nothing else though.
My Fiance mentions to me when I was working on the ivitations, that he isn’t very hip on a vintage wedding. Well I’m not married to the invite design I was working on which is the only thing that screamed vintage to me, so I will go back to the drawing board there.
My question, is it okay not to have a theme, for the theme just to be our wedding. Does it seem like I am all over the place? I am starting to stress.

I’ve seen themeless weddings, it’s totally ok to have them

I am not having a theme. I’m using a color scheme so things look coordinated but no theme. I actually feel like themes are too sweet 16.

i spent weeks agonizing over themes and colors and patterns etc etc….
now that my wedding is five months away, the theme has turned into “things i like”. i dont want to leave things out of my wedding because they don’t match etc… if i love it, im going to use it! 🙂 im going to stick to a certain colour palette and let everything just fall into place.

It’s your wedding. Have or don’t have whatever you want!

I love the ‘things I like’… I mean that should be what your day is! Right on!! Makes me feel better about getting married in an 1800’s country church, but having a jam band at the reception…Hey, they are both things I like!!

that sounds awsome! the people at your wedding are going to recognize your personality in the party and thats what matters. no one is going to notice if the menu cards don’t match the invitations etc…

My theme was also “wedding”. I kept my colors pretty tight. It worked great. Everybody got it.

I wanted a theme so badly!! Oh did I want one!! However, when expenses increased and we had to changed our venue, bye-bye theme.
With that said, our ceremony and reception locations are gorgeous, so they pretty much stand on their own without the need for a ton of decorations.
I settled on picking colors that are fun and spring-like, but we don’t have a theme.

A theme isn’t needed, the “theme” is you and FH!

My wedding could be called vintage/shabby chic theme, but really i am buying dresses/flowers and centrepieces that i like and have this style of stuff in my home. ok not odd plates and jam jars, but pretty and dainty ornamental things.
i think i bought my first thing for the wedding, then purely just want the rest to match the look and style. i didnt want fashionable things mixed with oldie worldie things.
when i got married the first time around, themes were not spoken about, but i had pink bridesmaids, a pink sash on my dress, pink bouquet, and pink flowers on the tables, so its just a case of matching things up together to look good, and thats what we all do at weddings, its just that someone one day called it a theme…….
