I mentioned to a friend that the cake I liked had butterflies on it…and she said, “Oh, is that the theme you finally picked?” I was like, “Ummm…I don’t have a theme.” Is one supposed to have a theme at a reception? Honestly, I’m just picking stuff I like lol.

You definitely don’t need to have a theme! Just keep picking things you like.

Haha. I SO don’t have a theme. And my planning is going just fine. So don’t worry. 🙂

You don’t need to have one at all! If you are creative enough to find things you like that all work together without a theme I say go for it! Some people like to have a theme to keep their choices focused, I just made an inspiration board to keep me focused on patterns and looks that I like as I start making choices.

Nope, you certainly don’t. Sometimes in the course of acquiring ideas and items, themes happen (that’s what happened to me AND my dear friend who is getting married this Saturday) but they’re not required.

I don’t have a theme.. but after picking stuff I like there seems to be a common thread: vintage with a very modern touch. Which is odd thought because my reception is at a Greek restaurant lol.
I also don’t have colors… pretty much any color you see in a sunset will probably be present somewhere.
Themes are for parties, not weddings In My Humble Opinion.

Nope! Some people like themes to create a consistency and flow, but in reality a theme could even be your colors, or not one at all. Anything goes with weddings! 🙂

Your wedding can have a theme if that floats your boat, but for most people the theme of their wedding is just “wedding”. 😉

Like others have said, themes are not required. I think they can be cute if the theme has a special meaning to you and Fiance, but they are not necessary.

You don’t have to have a “theme” per say, but it helps to keep things cohesive with a consistant or complementary color scheme so that it doesn’t feel or look like a random mish mash.

My Future Brother-In-Law just got married a few months ago and their “theme” was a beach reception. While we’re at the wedding, FSIL’s (FBIL wife) family-all 982394 of them- starts asking my FMIL what my theme is going to be. All she says is “Um, her theme is wedding” hahahaha i high fived her on that one.

I didn’t have a “theme” or “colour” per say, I had a vibe we were going for. I guess you could say my theme was “Mr Bakerella & I get married!” or just plain old “wedding”! LOL! I’m not a theme-y type person. But I ended up going with a elegant vintage vibe inspired by the tabletops with silver teapots centrepieces set on barnboard. I certainly wasn’t going to sweat making sure every shade of blue matched every other or anything like that. I love the way it turned out! I can hardly wait for our pro photos to come in!!!
