A lot of people don’t do themes. You are fine without a theme.

You don’t HAVE to have a theme.
I don’t have one.

I don’t think themes are necessary, just make sure it all looks cohesive. So if you want to use cherry blossoms on the paper, use them! Maybe you can do a cherry blossom kit as a favor, or have your escort cards have the design. Those little touches count more, in my opinion, than a hit-you-in-the-face-obvious theme.

No need for a theme. Or if really want one, you can call yours “garden”… Just don’t worry about it and enjoy the planning!

Agreed – it’s not necessary, but it helps focus you in as you’re selecting things to make it look cohesive.

As long as you’ve got colors that work together and things are of a similar style (nothing overly fancy with overly casual) you’ll be fine!

Good luck and enjoy it!!!

I think themes are okay if you have a) the money, b) the time and c) everything can fall into place. Don’t stress about it though. If the flowers you want are out of season, and you can find something else that fits, go for it. The only ‘theme’ to my wedding is the token colour, which is pale blue. I can go nuts!

[I, at one point, got so peeved about the ‘blue’ thing that I even suggested we go rainbow and have everything in any colour I fancied at the time of buying it!]

I don’t have a bouquet. I am going to carry whatever I can find in my garden on the day – at the moment by best friend/honorary gardener says it might be leeks or tomatoes – I am easy with whatever he can come up with!

As long as you have a colour scheme to make everything cohesive, you don’t necessarily need a theme. I like Hirondelle‘s suggestion of a garden theme. That doesn’t mean you have to place flowers everywhere though.

I don’t have a “theme” either, and it’s not necessary.  As long as everything coordinates together, you’re fine.  I personally think themes are silly, I’m not into the whole matching thing anyway.

We have no theme either. if there was a theme, it’d be food, and more food. And food.

You totally don’t have to have a theme. I don’t have one.

It’s fine. The color is a theme initself. You can always try a light theme. For instance, my lighter theme was snowflakes and lavender(the color).

I don’t have a theme. Just a color scheme would be nice and it looks like you already have that going on. 🙂
