HAve you planned what city you’re haivng the wedding in?  Maybe something iconic for the city or related to the season you’re getting married?  You can always change your invitations once you book your venue and have a better idea of your overall wedding theme.  Anything symbolic of how you first met?  I do like the butterfly idea though.

Some ideas: Cherry blossoms for DC.  Fall leaves for October.

Does your venue offer anything unique/special? Or is there a place/time with a special meaning to you two? 

For example:FI and I got engaged at Coney Island, we love Coney Island. Therefore, obviously, our theme is COney Island!

On the other hand, you don’t really NEED a theme – you can just pick a color/style you both like and go from there. Or, for an idea: Perhaps, since your wife likes the outdoors and you like pink, you could just go for pink and floral?

I don’t have a theme either, my wedding is in 2 months and I have everything booked. I don’t think you really need a theme. Just pick colours you both like and make sure you both like all the decor picked and it should be great! I figure even if our wedding doesn’t seem as matchy as other people’s it will definitely be OUR wedding lol.

We ended up with fall-ish colours (because I could not decide between red, orange, yellow and I wanted curly willow and he wanted berries LOL). We ended up with a lot of bird related items, not sure how. We are both animal lovers and just seemed to like the bird things. We never set a theme though it just sort of fell together. When I first got engaged I was going to do a black and white 50’s style and honestly it was just too hard and felt forced. Just go with the flow. Our save the dates just had a photo of us on it, our invitations are not in any of our wedding colours lol. Just pick what you like, it will work!
