We didn’t have a theme, just green and purple, and tried to do it as classy as we could. Unless you’re going to go all out on a theme, just do what you want.

Also, I wish people would stop calling their 20s weddings Gatsby-themed. I get that it’s a good way for people to instantly know what you’re talking about, but for anyone who’s read The Great Gatsby, it’s all about superficialism, betrayal, adultery, etc…. not really how you want your wedding to be!

My theme is old hollywood glam with bling! My dress and the flowers are blingy. I plan to walk down a red carpet, the decorations will have some sparkle, too. I also have incorporated butterflies into my theme. My colors are all kinds of green and blue, with some black and white… Simple, but pretty! The venue has a vintage feel as well…. I have not been on Pininterest, I guess I am a weirdo…

Hmm I don’t really have a theme but my colours are becoming pretty popular. We’ve gone for a gold & glitz wedding , with gold sequin table runners,  gold vases and ivory roses/flowers with touches of blush pink. Here in the UK we have a lot of shabby chic weddings or a hot pink wedding is so popular in my circle with receptions with balloon centrepieces. 

Im hoping my wedding will be a little different as it’s at Christmas time & it really reflect’s us as a couple! X

I’m not getting married in 2014…but in 2015 we will not be having a rustic wedding, either 🙂

 

Our wedding will be very classic, romantic, and elegant.

Mine doesn’t have a theme, but if I really have to call it something, it would be Simple & Elegant with Art Deco touches. Our colors are white, silver and blue, which just seemed appropriate for our winter wedding. I’m so happy to see others here that are doing this by feel and are not limiting themselves to a “theme.”

  • Wedding: October 2014 - Church

GretaMae316:  I don’t think there is anything wrong with pinterest, per se … I like posting my ideas so I don’t forget them (on my secret wedding boards hehe). However, we are not having rustic. Our venue is very modern with a lot of windows and beautiful sleet grey tile floor. The BMs are in long satin gowns and the guys are in morning suits. The Church, that happens to be our parish, is a beautiful dark wood inside and really reminds me of Noah’s Ark. Nothing about our wedding screams vintage or rustic. I like to think of it as a modern yet traditional and simple elegance.

 I personally do not know anyone who actually did a rustic wedding. No barns. No farms. Nothing like that.

We’re having an outdoor, lakeside wedding in Northern Italy and keeping the decor very simple so we haven’t really got a ‘theme’ as such, it’s just things we like that won’t detract too much from the beautiful setting/views.

I love the 1930’s so there will be an element of Art Deco in some things but it’ll also be pretty casual with potted plants as centre pieces and lots of candles which I guess could be considered as rustic! No burlap or mason jars but I love the soft romance of lace 🙂

I guess ours has some rustic parts, but not really. For example we are actually using burlap for runners. However it will be extra wide, hemmed and lined And it’s charcoal color. I wanted a natural fabric and this was cheap! My mom is making thme and I don’t think you will actually notice they are burlap. The rest I would say is romantic. Gold and silver mercury glass vases of all shapes and sizes for the centerpeicea and lots of candles. Some tables will have branches with hanging votives. The hall is very open and has a balcony that goes around it so we are hanging lights across it so they hang over the tables and dance floor. I don’t have a theme per se, just want an overall elegant and romantic feeling:)
