    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
