Just as my topic says my wedding doesn’t have a theme. It’s killing my bridesmaids because I haven’t picked one (kinda running out of time only like 57 more days left). I just feel that I’m not that kind of bride. Wait I take that back…. I told them I wanted my theme to be romance and I was vetoed and told romance isn’t a theme. So now with less than 2 months away I’m having a themeless wedding. And know what??? I’m so completely ok with that. I love it actually. I want my wedding to be a celebration of us and who we are and what we’re about. So instead of stressing about having a theme, I’m going to relax and think about how I’m going to wear my hair for my wedding…. (priorities! lol)
What about you gals? Do you have a theme? If so what is it? If not, why not?

I don’t think I’ve ever actually been to a wedding with a theme. Or, if I have, it wasn’t so overt that it sticks out in my memory. Mine certainly didn’t have one. Just a color scheme and an overall vibe of elegance and romance.

I don’t really have a ‘theme,’ just a color scheme and incorporating some of our favorite things in the decor.

Romance *is* a theme, regardless of what they say… my theme is “romantic whimsical”, which is not as straightforward as something like “star wars”, but it’s something with a definite idea around it!

I dont have a theme or a color scheme. I know everything will match. What is the need for a color scheme ot a theme anyways!? I know I want succilents and any color that goes with those. Easy enough.

Um, the theme is “wedding”, right?
It’s seriously “killing” your bridesmaids that you haven’t picked a theme??? Perhaps they need a hobby…
Good for you for realizing you have better things to worry about!!

@MrsDTMajor: Just tell them the theme is wedding. Don’t get me wrong, I love theme weddings that are well executed, but the notion that you have to have a theme is ridiculous to me.

People keep asking me if my wedding has a theme. I used to say I didn’t have a theme, but that led to more pressing questions and/or an offering of suggestions for a theme. I do not want a theme.
Now I say the theme is “Marraige and Food”

My theme was “Mr and Mrs J are getting married in a garden in front of a waterfall and the bridesmaid is wearing red because it’s good luck so a couple other things will be red and we like racing and fortune cookies.”

Ya I didnt really get the whole “theme” thing either..my sister was like “well you have to have a theme” I was like ummm ok the theme is…love? lol but then with my colors and some things I stumbled across that I liked I ended up falling into a sort of champagne theme…but really it is still about love and romance..just will have a few champagne related details here and there to help me have something concrete to work off of, totally not necessary though and I hate when people say it is mandatory..like pp said the theme is wedding, exactly! this is not some carnival it is a wedding!

Coming up with a theme and figuring out how to tie it in to every aspect of the wedding would add an unecessary level of stress for me. I had a hard enough time coming up with colors!
When done well, theme weddings are great. Some people get really into the details and a theme lets them be creative and really express themselves. But they are NOT a necessity, especially when you only have 2 months ago!

I wanted to go with a seasonal theme but my wedding planner is nixing the idea… so I guess we are going to just have a color scheme but I’m okay with that.

I have also never been to a wedding with a specific theme. Our theme was we’re getting married and using whatever we like that sparks our interest/creativity. We never even really had a color scheme. This worked for us…lol
