When it comes to deciding on a theme for a wedding there are many deciding factors. See below:
Likes and Dislikes – The most important deciding factor on a couples theme for a wedding is narrowing down exactly what their likes and dislikes are. Once this has been done the theme can be created around what the couples likes are.
Time of Year – The time of year can play a huge part when deciding on the overall theme for a wedding. Popular wedding themes are as follows: -
- Spring/Summer: Vintage, English Country Garden, Sparkle, and Versailles
- Autumn/Winter: Winter Wonderland, Gatsby, Rustic, Black and White, Fairy-tale
Venue and Location – The style of venue chosen for a couple’s big day can influence the theme. Some brides and grooms come up with a theme first and then look for a suitable venue/location whilst others decide on the venue/location and base the theme around the venue. It all depends on what is more important to the couple.
Budget - Not all brides are fortunate enough to have an endless money pot for their wedding so it important that they are able to have the wedding of their dreams within the budget set aside. Therefore it is important to allocate some of your budget on theming but not all of it. Think about what will make the theme stand out for instance flowers, lighting and furniture.
Age – The age group of the bride and groom as well as their guests should be considered when deciding the theme. As some younger couples may want to go with a trend whilst others may want to keep it very classic and elegant.
