Ideas for Unique Wedding Themes

Aug 17, 2007
The idea of using a wedding theme is increasingly popular today for many reasons. For many the reason is that the traditional wedding is simply pricing them out. For others it is the desire to be different, bigger, and grander than the nuptial event before it. Fortunately, today's bride can have both or either because with a wedding theme the young couple can chose to include or omit each individual element of the wedding and since each celebration is different, who is to say that anything is missing as long as you have a bride and groom committing themselves to each other for a lifetime of love and support.

No longer does your wedding have to be basically the same as everyone else's, you can make it as simple, elaborate, and / or unique as you're your imagination will allow. With a wedding theme, each couple's wedding is all their own as they take from these (and an infinite number of other) possible unique wedding themes and mold them to reflect themselves and their own community.

Western Wedding Theme:

Have the bridal party dress with a western flavor and hold this type of wedding outdoors with all western decorations. Do it up right and transform the center of a big barn by draping the sides with organza (or another fabric) in your choice of colors to create your own rough hewn cathedral. Have a barbeque reception with a bluegrass band playing in the background as the sun sets over the hills. Perhaps you will even want to acquire a wagon and some horses for your arrival or departure.

Marina Wedding Theme:

Freshen up the typical beach themed wedding with one of the many possible variations that make another beach wedding turn into an event that won't be soon forgotten. A Marina themed wedding is one of many ways you can make a wedding by the sea fresh without abandoning the beach all together. Take advantage of the graceful elegance of sailboats gliding across the water in your decor and a harbor view location for your ceremony, reception, or both!

The Butterfly Wedding:

Use butterflies in everything - Have your florist put ornamental butterflies in your flowers. Use cake jewelry to add butterflies to the cake, or have the pastry chef design your cake around a butterfly theme. You can even release butterflies after the ceremony, and at the reception - use butterfly themed favors and decorations

Renaissance Wedding Theme:

The entire bridal party should dress up in 16th century costumes, including the minister! Use period music and remember all the interests and accomplishments of the period as you search and develop your decoration ideas. Encourage your guests to join in the fun with your renaissance theme.

Mariner Wedding Theme:

This is as different from the Marina theme as possible and at the same time being so very similar! Honor the hard working men and women of the sea by designing a wedding around the rugged lives they live. Use old anchors and fishing nets in your decor along with raincoats and rough hewn table. No, this might not be the most elegant theme but a wedding is not primarily about elegance - it's about celebrating your new life together.

Ancient Greek Wedding Theme:

Take advantage of the thriving Greek culture to be found in many pockets around America today to build a wedding that is as full of tradition as it is fun and unique. Go for a look reminiscent of Ancient Athens with your Ancient Greek Wedding Theme, the original Olympiad, or have fun with the tales of Hercules, Athena, and Zeus!

Obviously, these are just a few of the multitude of ideas for ways to make your wedding a unique and memorable experience. Remember, your wedding doesn't have to be expensive, but it does have to be memorable. Fortunately, with a little imagination you can make your wedding something a little different and very spectacular by simply using a unique wedding theme.
