So, Fiance and I never really concentrated on a theme when planning things. & after seeing all of you other brides with themes being carried throughout your whole wedding… I’ve been left thinking maybe I’ve been doing this all wrong?
We chose a color scheme, or more like the color scheme chose us. (Our venue is decorated with touches of gold and purple here and there and I decided to run with it). I’ve come to fall in LOVE with the color purple and love the accents of gold/champagne that is offered throughout the architecture of the venue.
But besides that… we really have nothing else that I would consider a “theme”.
I’ve worked on our cake topper, which instead of rhinestones like everyones been doing, I’ve used glitter. I’ve incorporated that into our votives which will be placed on the tables around the centerpieces as well, by rimming each one with the same glitter used on the cake topper. But that’s pretty much it.
Any other brides out there “THEME-LESS” like I am? Feel like you’re missing something kind of?

Our theme is “wedding”. I’m pretty pumped about it. 😉

We don’t have a theme. Our colors are red and teal and I’m sticking to that. I guess the fact that it is very formal could add to the theme. Here is a board from awhile ago (bridesmaid dresses are now all long and the same shade [as the picture with the white flowers] but different styles). I should really update this board soon because I have a few more things set in stone.
ETA: I think themes just help people visualize their wedding better (which makes it easier to decide between several venues, several styles of dresses ect.)

We don’t have a theme either, just colors (navy and apple green). Having a theme never crossed my mind so you’re not alone!

I’m having a “feel” of how I want my wedding to be, not a “theme”. I feel once it’s a “theme party” it can get out of control, and besides, theme parties are for frats and little kids birthdays.

I had no theme. No color palette. No color really until my Darling Husband happened to pick the same color vest as my bouquet and we realized other things happened to turn out to be the same color as well. I didn’t feel like I was missing something. The theme was “wedding” as another poster mentioned. Anything more than that would have felt fake, forced, and like too much work. 🙂

I personally find it refreshing! Brides can have anything they want! But sometimes I just wanna go to a wedding and eat some cake, I don’t need to be inundated with colors and stuff and shapes and one loop bows or a buffet with foods that only start with the couple’s initials….

You don’t need a theme. I don’t have one, nor do I think it’s necessary. Instead, we’re incorporating bits from both our personalities and interests. In 5 years, is anyone going to remember your theme anyway? Heck, I doubt anyone would remember after 5 hours.

We didn’t have a theme, just colors because I like things to go together.

I don’t think a theme is at all necessary for a wedding. To be honest, sometimes people take their theme to the limits of it being overboard and even sometimes tacky at times. That’s not to say that theme weddings aren’t nice, its just that I have been to and seen several non-theme weddings and they are so classical and romatic that I alsmot enjoy them better. Besides, themes can get expensive and stressful trying to make everylittle detail come out just right. I think what you are doing sounds beautiful and if you don’t want to theme-up your wedding, than don’t.

We don’t have a theme either! It is kind of bumming me out. >_<
I feel like we might be all over the place with our wedding and might not make sense.
Our color scheme is Black and Gold, canary yellow (to compliment gold), soft pink and blue (to compliment black).

No theme here — we just went with our venue’s colors/vibe like you are doing. It was GORGEOUS. I say go for it!

I have to opposite problem- a theme with NO colors! But that is what works for me!! Colors are a theme in a way, as long as it is done well you do not need anything else! I am sure that it will be wonderful!

No theme for me! Not even really got a colour scheme. We’re both wearing what we want & who cares if we don’t match the table cloths?!

I think the theme thing is kind of goofy, to be honest. I”m with Neetch, the theme is “getting married!!!” I guess we do have a general vibe we’re going for, which is basically celebratory, rowdy, rustic, outdoor, colorful. Not a theme per se… Anyway, I wouldn’t worry about were i you – I’m certainly not.
