I’m doing a peacock theme for my wedding which came somewhat organically to me… I kind of picked jewel tones blue/green/gold and then from there realized that peacock feathers matched that perfectly so I would add a few in (which then became my whole theme). I’ve been so surprised at how popular it is though! I think that somehow we must all subconsciously be seeing the same things even when we think we’re being original 🙂
So I was curious what theme you’re doing, and if you realized it was popular before you picked it?

We’re not really do a “theme” all that much. We’re having a beach wedding, but I don’t really want to play up on “sand and shells”, it will be more like just having tropical flowers, I’m aiming for a laid-back, island-vibe attitude.

For a theme, I wanted the feeling of being in the English country side (like the movie Emma). We’re having light and dark blue hydrangea with whites, and clean lines. Our cocktail hour will be outside in the mansions’ gardens and our lounge area will also be outside.

I started out wanting a “vintage glam garden party” but by the end of planning, I was just kind of like “eff it, however it comes together is fine, as long as it does come together!” Looking at the wedding, I don’t think you ever would guess that it has any kind of theme. But that’s okay with me.

We did the ever popular “Bird” theme with a vintage feel. My favorite element was the card box…it was a wooden birdhouse custom built in our colors. It came with two roofs – one with a card slot to use on the wedding day, and one without a slot to display after the wedding.

We’re doing a bit of a rustic theme, but we too didn’t know it was popular. Fiance had carved our initials into a tree before we were engaged, and from there I came up with the idea to use a “Lovers Tree” theme. It was when I started looking for brainstorm ideas that i realized how popular it already was, just from all the invitation ideas available out there.

We don’t have a theme. We would have done rustic if we had stuck with our original venue, but that wouldn’t work well in our new venue and I don’t have the gumption to plan around a theme that would go with a 1920s loft.
We are trying to stick to a very “unfussy” look and feel to the wedding, so I guess we are doing a little bit of a modern vibe. In fact, that’s one of the reason I LOVE corgitales invites…they are so clean and unfussy, while not being simplistic.
Hmmm, maybe I can start calling our theme “unsimplistically unfussy”…

We’re getting married on my FI’s grandparent’s farm, so it would be easy to do rustic. I am trying not to really a do a “theme” at all, though. I just want things to look pretty and people to have fun. I am kind of with hilsy that at this point, I just want it to all come together. 🙂

I guess if I had to have a theme it would have been “love at the lake”. Our relationship grew at the lake, we got engaged at the lake and we got married at the lake so thats how it was all tied in. The decor style was just summery – we stuck to our colors more than a theme!

We aren’t really having a theme, except my florist wrote in her proposal 1940’s Hollywood glam…so whatever that means.
I know I’m not aiming for anything specific, except the ‘we are getting married!’ theme! 😉

We’re doing a little Mad Men inspired, so kind of a combination of Hollywood Glam and Vintage, but really I guess it’s more mid-century modern. That’s the best way I know how to describe it…everything looks sleek and has clean lines. And it’s pewter, ivory and pale yellow. I love looking at everyone’s theme!

@nmsoonerbride: heh except the “unfussy-ness” of my planning is really just about being cheap! I can’t over-do because I don’t have a budget for it! Therefore I’m stating its super INTENTIONAL that I’m just doing colors with a “touch” of a theme… haha (its all about spin)
@Miss Olive: love mad men! How cool!

i am using damask everywhere! i had picked this theme before i discovered weddingbee so i had no idea how overyused it really was! but i love it and none of my friends or family has done it so… 🙂 oh and my colors are black and white with hints of green 🙂

Hmm….it wasn’t intentional at first, but as we started gathering items for the wedding we started to develop a very subtle “Wizard of Oz” theme (perfect, since my real name is Dorothy!). My reception shoes are replica ruby slippers, which I will be wearing with a short white dress and blue cardigan. There are also blue birds scattered in various elements (from the song “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”), the wedding cake is funfetti/confetti (because I love rainbows!), and gingham makes its appearance as well. It’ll be subtle, but fun for those who catch on!

We had what I called a “Country Italian” Theme.
We centered alot of our “written” items: invites, programs, escort cards, menus with an abstract looking olive branch stamp, that was printed in different variations on each item. For our table numbers my Husband and I had taken a trip to Italy, so we used pics from our trip and named tables after landmarks we visited in Italy for our table numbers.
For apps we had a cheese station w/ bruchetta. And for dinner we had classic cesar salads and two different hearty pasta entrees.
And one of our cupcake flavors was a Italian creme cupcake w/ raspberry filling!
The venue was “country” like and relaxed. we had horseshoes, country music, and I wore cowboy boots.
Overall for the feel we wanted casual, country, with a touch of Italy 🙂
