What theme did you guys have or are planning to have for your weddings? What themes have you seen and thought were amazing and creative?
Or alternatively: Did anyone ever regret a theme? Seen someone have a theme and thought it was awful?

I love vintage, old Hollywood glamour, anything quirky and personal to the couple. But I am a huge fan of formal dress! As in evening dresses and sharp suits. I love winter themes and lots of really sumptuous decor.

Oh, and I didn’t have a proper wedding, just a courthouse visit. So I’m not talking from experience.

Yipeebee: I always adore the vintage weddings, they’re so gorgeous! And formal wear does always look so nice, although I’ve been leaning toward a more relaxed theme.
A courthouse wedding is always nice! My brother and his hhusband had one (they were one of the couples who were waiting in DC for the marriage equality announcement and went to the courthouse as soon as ppossible after) and it was lovely, it felt very intimate, regardless of the other couples crowding outside.
Edit: Actually, the other couples made it better, everyone was so happy and the energy was great.

We don’t have a theme exactly but most of our decor/color/paper goods choices have been influenced by two things: 1. Our wedding is on a Super Moon night – which we picked for sentimental reasons and 2. I love the Art Deco trend. So we are doing lots of night sky colors and some Art Deco touches.
I haven’t seen many weddings with a dark blue & silver color scheme like ours has.

I fell in love with David Tutera’s Midsummer Night’s Dream so that’s what we’re going with…Shakespeare/A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

We are doing a travel theme. We met on a tour as roadies, became good friends on a US broadway tour and started dating on a Cirque du Soliel tour in Europe. I’m sure that themes will always have some part of a wedding, it shows the personality of the couple. Although ones like ours that can double as a child’s birthday party will be off trend in the future. Oh well, I am excited with what we picked and how it reflects our relationship.
As for themes that didn’t work? The only thing I was disappointed in at a wedding has been where there is absolutely nothing personal to the couple. It’s a day to celebrate them, not look like a stock photo. Even if it’s something small like a few pictures, the cake topper or color choice

I wanted a Midsummer’s Night Dream but we settled on whimsical with small touches of Harry Potter.

I agree with the PP who said the only wedding theme “disasters” I’ve seen have been the ones that don’t reflect the couple at all. I knew someone who genuinely claimed her wedding had been “Mother in law” themed.

I’m doing a Gatsby, glamorous, 1920’s decor themed wedding. Anyone who knows me knows I’m obsessed with the early 1900’s, history, Gatsby and anything from that area so it definitely reflects me and my FI!

Souzie: and uncltredpearl: Oh my god, a Midsummer’s Night Dream wedding would look so absolutely amazing, I’ll definitely be bringing it up to K (FI), and then the wedding planner when we find one.
lindsayE: That sounds gorgeous, and I love the color scheme!
theatrejulia: A travel theme, how cool! And it’s great that you found a theme that fit with you so well. And I know what you mean about doubling as a kid’s party, K and I have been considering a vintage carnival theme. And yeah, like you and ICallHimFarmBoy: (love your username, by the way, and HTTYD sounds adorable!) said, very cliche weddings can seem pretty impersonal.
doglover89: Always a good theme! I know someone who wants a Ravenclaw themed wedding.
nedville: I haven’t even thought about colors once, I get you so much.
steph91: Ooh, I love the Great Gatsby, and I love the idea of a vintage wedding. That is going to be gorgeous.
