  • Wedding: August 2009

We have the underlying theme of how sweet marriage is.  We’re having photos of our married friends and relatives all around the reception area, different homages to love and committment and of course, TONS of sweets 🙂

We have a loose 1940’s – 1950’s theme.  It’s fun as we’re both into those eras and we both love dressing up.  Our familys all plan on getting in on the action too!

Our theme is vintage modern.  My Mom has no clue what this means, which constantly cracks me up.  Lots of elements of our wedding are vintage inspired.  Our venue is at the beach, but we are not having a beach themed wedding, no seashells, beach grass, ect.  However my mom keeps suggesting starfish for everything.  Again, this cracks me up.

Our theme is Tommy Bahama meets wedding.  We are using neutral colors and textures (ie raffia, sand and rocks).  It will be on grass near sand, so we have a lot of flexibility with a beachy, but not to beachy feel.  The problem is that I don’t want it to look like a luau, so I’m focusing on neutral colors.

Good luck!

We had a winter wedding, so we had an underlying theme of snowflakes…we found subtle ways to incorporate them into everything!

Ours is a crazy bright colored spring wedding, so we’re going with daisies and butterflies. And tons of color everywhere! It’ll be fun, albeit somewhat dizzying if I don’t keep the decorator under control. =D

Ours is kind of an outdoors adventure/rustic/summer theme at a ski resort.  We love to mountain bike together, so our arrival at the cocktail hour will be on a tandem cruiser bike and I’ve been loosely tying in bikes to some of our stationary. We’re also planning on some pinwheel details for a fun touch (programs and napkin folds hopefully). Not a very wedding-y theme, but very "us".

Our wedding had a southwestern theme. It included fetish bears, pottery and native american woven baskets.  Good Luck!

We got married at a big lake, but did not want to go too nautical for fear of looking "theme-y". Instead, we just used a lot of navy and white with some green pops, and used a very simple anchor motif on all of our paper goods. We did have an old row boat holding drinks, too.

My colors are black and white with a green pop.  So pretty similar!  For a theme I am going with kind of a natural feel.  We are using a wish tree instead of a guest book.  And planning on using  lots of fruit with our centerpieces.  As our favors we are either going to use small potted herbs, sapplings, or a donation.  The first two go along with the theme, but the third is easier… maybe the donation could be to a green cause.  And I want to use lots of flower / leaf patterns in my black and white to pull the nature look in.  For my bm gifts I might get them something from www.TheRainforestSite.com.  All of the proceeds go towards saving the rainforrest

I also think I’m going to be incorporating the infinity sign into our wedding.  The symbol has always seemed so romantic to me.  It signifies that our relationship will last forever… *smile*

PrettyKitty my theme is what im calling vintage modern also. Sometimes I also say its elegant chic! Everybody seems to scratch their head when I say vintage/modern though!

My theme is really more of an inspiration or motif. It’s based off of a pysanka Ukrainian easter egg that my fiance gave me when we were engaged in New York last year.

I guess I’m another "vintage modern" bride, but specifically I’m trying to tie in some Art Nouveau/Art Deco elements while still keeping things feeling streamlined and uncluttered. I found some great free nouveau-inspired fonts to use on our stationery and the graphics have the same vibe. Our venue is a turn-of-the-century manor house with beautiful gardens and I’m hoping to play up some of the natural elements. Also, my colors fit in with the jewel tones that were popular in that era. I don’t think I’ll do anything too specific, like having Mucha or Toulouse Lautrec prints as table numbers, since I’m mostly going for the feel.

I’m going for a kind of "walk in the woods" theme… basically the elements of our wedding have this really natural, organic feel to them…
