Oh there are sooo many good themes! Mine is an elegant winter theme (colors:navy blue, silver and white).

I have seen several different ones… beach(starfish,pale blue, pale yellow and stripes), royal(purple, and LOTS of gold), vegas(red,black and white, cards, martinis), garden(pale colors, garden roses, gold), vintage (gold, gathered antique vases, lace, candles), eco-chic (eco friendly products), regional (local flowers, local food, local entertainment), rock(black, and red, guitar picks, rock music, blood red roses), rustic( checkered table clothes, mason jars, sunflowers), venetian(cream, gold, masks), hamptons( crisp white, eyelet, lemonade, sun hats)

The most important is that you pick a theme that represents you and your fiances as a couple and makes season for the season!

We’re doing a vintage travel sort of thing.  But I really love shabby chic as well, Mr. CC said it was too girlie.  He would have been happy with navy and orange (his teams colors)!

I think that the best themes are inspired by the both of you as a couple as well as the season and venue. For instance, my fiance and I are both modern/minimalist in nature but a mod look at our rustic spanish venue just didnt’ seem appropriate.

Totally inspired by our engagement story, we’re playing up the cherry blossom theme! He proposed under a blanket of cherry blossoms in Kyoto, so naturally that’s what has inspired us! Because our wedding is in July though and blossoms are not in season, we’re playing up the pale pinks throughout the day! 

Hope that helps!

Mine is somewhat beachy, Im doing chocolate brown and a teal/turqouise color and using starfish throughout.  The starfish will be used for the placecards, Ill have small silver starfish on the menu cards and our invitations have a small silver starfish on them as well.  Some other things we are using are ring pillows and flower girl baskets that have swarvorski starfish on them too.

You’re getting married in December.  Can you do a Christmas theme?  You could give ornaments as favors.  You could decorate with Christmas trees.   And you don’ have to be tied to red or green Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses.

We are shabby chic-it just kind of evolved when we were playing with tablescapes. Being on a major budget, we were trying to use what we already had, so the table toppers look sort of like Battenburg lace with mixed cut glass, crystal, silver & a couple of mirrored pieces. With cut flowers, it has a casually elegant feeling that is perfect for our morning wedding and brunch reception.

We are doing a Parisian theme in black, white and red with damask accessories.  I am very excited about this.  We plan on naming each table a different site in Paris (ex) Eiffel Tower, Moulin Rouge, The Louvre, etc….  Our wedding guest book is old Paris postcards for our guests to write us a message.  Each postcard on the table will correspond with the site that table is at.  If anyone else has any ideas feel free to chime in and let me know what you think….

We are doing a vintage, old hollywood glam themed wedding with blush pink, black, and ivory with some ivory damask.  Our centerpieces are candelabras with hanging crystals on half of the tables and the other half have 4 matching candlestick holders with crystals, along with some flowers.

We’re going with a vintage roadtrip theme.  It sounds bizarre, but it’s working out well. 🙂 Our colors are aqua, navy, and orange.   Also sounds a little strange, but they work!

"Walk in the woods"

 

our flowers are all wildflowers and really garden-y natural earthy flowers, branches in the centerpieces. We have a bird motif running throughout some of the details.  we’re doing scattered lavender petals instead of rice for the rice toss.

I don’t really think we have a theme just colors. We’re doing teal, light blue, black with white accents.  Not sure what kind of theme that would be
