Of course, a great way to know just what you’re looking for and the colors you need, is to pick a theme. Pick your wedding colors too, but it’s easier if you just pick a theme and stick to it. Here are some popular themes:
- Rustic Chic
- English Garden
You can look at images on google or pintrest for ideas as to what you’d like your wedding theme to be. Gay couples may like a rainbow-themed wedding. An idea that I had for a cake-and-punch reception wedding, is a tea party theme. At tea parties, you usually serve tea, ice tea, coffee and a variety of desserts. This is a great idea if you’re looking to save money on a main course, appetizers, etc. You can also have it alcohol-free, which also saves big bucks. Another option is to have a carnival theme wedding. You can have low-cost food such as hot dogs, burgers, cotton candy, popcorn, etc. You can also have a casual barbecue for a meal.
Also, your theme can just be your wedding color(s). Examples are, black and white, pink and green, rainbow, gold and silver, blue, etc. You can also theme it according to the season. If it’s a winter wedding, you can hang up paper snowflakes, snowmen designs, Christmas decorations, etc. For a spring wedding, you can have pastel colors and flowers. For a summer wedding, you can have bright colors and bright flowers, sun-shaped decor, and in a scenic outdoor area. For an autumn wedding, you can have warm colors, leafy decorations, pumpkins, scarecrows, etc. There is so much that you can play with when it comes to themes!
Take your time, mix and match, and pick your theme!
