Start thinking of the style and mood which you want on your wedding day! Do you prefer a casual, sophisticated or romantic wedding? Have you ever thought of a traditional wedding ceremony and yet, have fun at the reception? Do you consider the atmosphere of a garden, romantic or relaxed wedding compared to a Fifties-style wedding held at a local night club.
Second, set your budget. This gives you an idea of how many themes you can reasonably incorporate. You may want to choose a reception site to match your theme or vice versa. Either way, careful planning is necessary to avoid costly mistakes. If budget is a major issue, choose two or three ideas from a theme that really adds visual impact.
Themes can incorporate any or all of the following areas:
- Colour Scheme
- Family Traditions
- Time of Year
- Gift/Cake Tables
The secret to a beautiful wedding is to decide what will make you both happy. By selecting a theme, you will be surprised how easy it is to celebrate a unique day that you will both remember for a lifetime.
