Selecting Your Wedding Theme - Some Tips

Oct 25, 2007
Before you make you decision on the choice of wedding items such as favors, invitations and dress, you need to choose or make a decision on the wedding theme. In fact, the theme is the first thing you need to consider when you are planning for your wedding. However, there can be too many different themes for you to think of and you may feel lost at some point. In order to make your life easier, you may consider the following points when you are selecting your wedding theme.

The first thing you need to think of is the season and the time of the year you will going to have your big day. If you are going to have that in summer, your theme will never be a winter one and vice versa. If you are planning to have your big day during a festival, you may make your wedding relating to the festival. For example, you can make your reception like a Christmas party if you are going to have your wedding in late December.

You may also select your theme based on some cultural experiences. If both of you and your spouse are big fans of Asian culture, you may try to arrange an Asian theme, or even Chinese theme wedding. This wedding will certainly be special and your guests will be amazed by what you have prepared for your big day.

Another thing you need to consider is the style of your wedding. You need to think whether you would like a formal or an informal one. If you are someone who think wedding is all about etiquette, you may choose to have a more formal wedding. On the contrary, you will probably choose the latter if you believe wedding is meant to be fun. Usually a wedding in a church will be considered a formal one while some other choices such as beach weddings will be regarded as an informal one. Your choice will affect how you select your other wedding items such as venue and music. It will be quite impossible to change your mind in the middle of your wedding planning. As a result you should make think clearly before you make your decision.

Besides the style, the form of your wedding should also be considered. Here the form refers to whether you would like a more traditional wedding. A traditional one can be a good choice if you do not want to put too much effort on your big day. However, I believe that most couples would like to make their wedding as special as possible and they will try to put as much effort as they can to make their wedding unique. In this case you may go for a more modern choice.

Although your choice of wedding theme will affect your choices of other wedding items, there are some cases that some items are preset and you have to make your theme somehow in line with them. For example, if you are going to use the wedding dress of your mother, or even grand mother, you may not choose a beach wedding theme. The key is that every little detail should match one another so that your wedding will be more unique.
