Choosing the Perfect Wedding Theme

Aug 12, 2008
It's possible to have a non-themed wedding, but by selecting a wedding theme, you'll find that it is far easier to plan. Everything will revolve around the common topic and this limits the number of choices you have, making it easier to select everything from the flowers to the cake and bridesmaid dresses.

Many Toronto weddings have traditional themes, but you can certainly expand on these and take it in any direction you want. The trick is to choose something that you are passionate about and that reflects the interests of both the bride and the groom.

Wedding Themes with Color

One fun way to pick a wedding theme that isn't too out there is to simply go with colors. If you have a red wedding, for example, the bridesmaids can wear red dresses, the bouquet can be made up of red roses, etc. The color theme can even be taken on to the reception, with the cake being iced in white with red decorations, red tablecloths, etc.
Traditional color wedding themes include colors like pink, yellow, and silver, among others. In general, wedding colors tend to be fairly soft, since it's the bride that chooses them. There are plenty of people who have gone against that, however and opted for bolder purples, teals and even black!

Romantic Wedding Themes

For those who conjure up gossamer dreams for their wedding, only a romantic theme will do. There are plenty of these, from the more exotic Hawaiian wedding or a fairy tale wedding theme to the simpler beach theme . . . even if you don't actually have the wedding on the beach.

Part of creating a romantic wedding is giving the impression of escape, but if you can't hit the actual beach for your Toronto wedding or fly everyone to Hawaii, just get creative . . . sprinkle some sand on the reception floor, toss some shells on the tables, etc. If you can't go to the location, just make your theme come to you!

Extreme Wedding Themes

Looking for a wedding that will jump start your heart? How about a bungee jumping or skydiving? The perfect thing for adrenaline junkies! While you might have the actual ceremony performed while jumping off a bridge, don't forget to turn the reception into an extreme theme, too!

A cake with the figurines plummeting off the side makes a nice addition to an extreme wedding theme and you can also drape parachutes from the ceiling. There are plenty of ways to bring the extreme into your wedding reception, even if your actual ceremony is on location.

Wedding Themes Based on Hobbies

Another way to go is to take a passion that is mutual (or combine two different ones) and turn it into a wedding theme. A good example of this would be a cowboy themed wedding or one that revolves around race cars.

Many people use their passions or hobbies or even their jobs to some extent in their wedding themes. You can incorporate your theme as much as you want into the wedding, or keep it fairly simple. It's completely up to you.

Wedding themes should be chosen according to what works for you. If you are a more traditional person, don't let anyone pressure you into a more extreme wedding theme. Likewise, it's important to find a theme that both the bride and the groom will be comfortable with. This is a good area to plan together, even if the bride makes most of the decisions for the rest of the wedding, the theme should be mutually enjoyable.
