@acciotoni:  Stick to your guns and don’t pick one. You don’t need one. If she needs more direction then show her pictures of things you like.

Instead of picking a theme, can you give her a “style board” – aka a print out of a bunch of the photos you love for inspiration? Hand her that and say, “I don’t know what this is called, but this is my style.”

I would be worried with the word winter you’re going to end up with pinecones & bark.

My colors were my theme, too.  There’s nothing wrong with that. I agree with a PP to just show her pictures of things you like and let her label it a theme as she wills. As long as you like it in the end, that’s what matters!

I don’t have a theme, just colors and stuff I like 😛

I also didn’t have a theme. My reception room had a lot of flowing white chiffon so the room was already fairly decorated. I just made a pinterest board with different things I liked and showed those to my florist, baker, etc.

I feel like a “theme” is more for a bar mitzvah or something- unless you want it rustic or something in particular. But “clean & simple” should be easy to do without calling it that!

I chose a winter theme simply because it is going to be held in the winter.

You don’t need a theme. If she can’t figure it out from your colors and the formalness of the event based on venue, time, etc., then you should find someone else!
