    How about a wedding that themed like a wedding?  You know, people get married, they kiss, you eat cake and drink champagne…that’s how we rolled, worked out fine!

    Our theme was a combination of “Sh$t we like” and “We love Scotland, we is awesome so therefore Scotland is awesome”. (The latter is less of a theme, given we live in Scotland.)

    Wedding themed is my favourite.

    I am not big into themes.

    I wouldn’t describe mine as hodge-podge because I did stick to a specific “look” but it wasn’t themed. The theme was nice wedding.

    No theme for us… just a mixture of what makes me and SO who we are.

    Neither a hodge podge nor a theme. I have pretty consistent tastes, so that should be reflected through the wedding since I planned it all (with, um, help from Fiance…of course). I’m not too into themes other than the obvious theme of wedding. I think it would be neat to pull off a truly themed wedding like all the guests dressing like it’s the 20s and having an art deco venue, period cars and music – the whole nine yards, but I think you’d need to be among the idle rich (along with all of your friends and relations) to pull off something like that. For us regular folk “Hey it’s a wedding, let’s all eat, drink and make merriment” is a perfectly good theme. Smile

    You know, this whole theme thing has gotten entirely out of hand…I’m invited to a wedding, here’s what I expect:

    1.  To see two people get married

    2.  To eat some cake

    Everything else is extra credit, but I do not want to walk into a wedding reception and find myself feeling like I accidentally stumbled into a theme park, it freaks me out, and seems to give some people license to act like jackasses.

    I think the whole “theme” thing is a by-product of the commercialization of weddings. It’s fine for those who get into it, but not really necessary. I think for a lot of people it just becomes a way of articulating ideas about what they like.

    We keep telling vendors that what we really want is a “wedding-themed party.” Emphasis on fun times and party. We have a vague sense of colors that we’re using in multiple places, but that’s about it. People will not walk out of the wedding able to identify a theme…I think. I am not that consistent, LOL.

    I can’t choose any of these options. I didn’t have a theme per se (other than “wedding”), but there were organizational principles that we stuck to and everything went together.
