So like the title says I am at a total loss when it comes to themes. Everyone keeps asking me what theme we are doing for our wedding and if we are doing one and my response is just a blank stare. I know we want to have purple and blue for our colors but thats it. If someone could shead the light on themes and if we really need one that would be much appreciated.
Thanks bees!! Happy Planning!!

Yeah, my theme will be awesome! I call it “wedding”. I asked the same question a little while ago, and I realized if you don’t have a theme, no worries, you don’t need one. Just through a kick ass party.

kayyy727: You don’t need to have a theme. A color scheme on its own is fine, and even that isn’t really necessary. Your wedding should suit you and your Fiance.

We’re not doing a “theme.” Colors are green and white. Boom, wedding.

our theme was “we’re getting married”. Best theme ever!

kayyy727: purple and blue is your wedding theme! 🙂 Just tell them that your colors are purple and blue! In my experience people like to know that to ensure that they don’t wear attire to match those colors!

kayyy727: The word “theme” reminds me of a birthday party. I in no way want my wedding to look like a birthday party. I have no theme. I just tell everyone my colors and the “style” I’m going for.

kayyy727: I don’t have a theme either. I have certain colors, but no theme. (classic venue, rustic DIY decor, modern settings). It’s your wedding and remember there’s no such rule of having a “theme”.

My kids’ birthday parties had themes. Like we would get all Disney Princess stuff, at the party store. I don’t think I’ve ever been to a themed wedding; they’re just informal, semi-formal, or formal. My girls wanted elegant (black tie) – one was gold and eggplant and the other gold and black. No difficult decisions about that.

My theme is also wedding lol. My colours are red and grey and I do have a graphic that I used on a few things but I wouldn’t really call it a theme.

We’re not doing a theme besides “wedding” and having our colors in things. A wedding isn’t a kids party, it doesn’t need a theme.

I don’t have a theme. I just want it to be romantic, but I wouldn’t call it a theme. I would hope that most, if not all weddings, should be romantic.

kayyy727: We don’t have a theme. I think wedding shows make it seem like you need to have a theme- but the theme is wedding! I think if you have a theme in mind that’s fine, but you don’t have to seek one out if nothing comes to you right away. If you need to tell people something just to answer the question just tell them your colors and that you’re going “classic”.

- Wedding: Disneyland - January 2016
I feel like if you have to force a theme or are conflicted over it, then they’re probably not for you, and that’s perfectly okay 🙂 We’re having a Fairytale theme because it suits our tastes, interests, and sort of naturally formed out of the different ideas we were gathering together for what we’d like for decor, invites, dress, general mood, etc.
That being sad, I don’t think it’s polite for other brides to rag on weddings with themes and compare them to “children’s parties” or things like that. Themes can be elegant and meaningful to both the bride and groom, so why pick on what’s special to them?
