Everybody thinks himself or herself to be different from the rest, but some try to prove it, too. And what better time than your wedding to state your proof?
Your wedding day is absolutely your own day; it's up to you to decide how to make it unforgettable. Your wedding theme reflects your attitude towards the event. If it's your first wedding, then lots of color and decoration shall be in order. However, subsequent weddings are usually quieter affairs, with somewhat low-key and subdued themes. Using the appropriate theme for your wedding will not only reflect your good taste, but also liven up the event for your guests, and put them in the right sort of mood.
? Plan the background theme of the moment of union in such a way, so that the color and fragrance of it remain awakened in your mind forever. You need to choose the theme very carefully, so give it some careful consideration while there's time.
There can be numerous kinds of theme:
? Butterfly theme: If you are a bride, you can release butterflies instead of rice. If you are a groom, then too you can fill your hall with thousands of colorful butterflies. They will add color and charm to the ceremony. The same effect can be produced with birds, too. Create the ambience of a passionate summer evening or treat your guests to an untimely blissful spring.
? The oriental theme: Use an oriental theme to contrast with the crowd of occidental guests. You may want to adopt some Asian wedding rituals to reproduce the essence of the mysterious far east. You can create a small tropical forest, with pictures and plants. Add an uncanny and adventurous color to the atmosphere through the use of tribal attires and statuettes of wild animals.
? Irish theme: If you're looking for a calm, pastoral mood, Irish themes are an excellent choice, specially if laced with old celtic motifs.
? Color theme: You could want to accentuate a particular color by using it in flowers, fruits, dresses, lights and even foods. Try to find out what color your future partner likes best.
? English garden theme: Marry in the lap of nature, or better still, bring the elements of the nature within your four walls. If you are fond of the ocean, decorate the hall with nautical elements like starfish, pearls, or an image of the setting sun against a backdrop of sea. Use a matching décor tinged with blue, the color of the sea.
? Seasonal theme: Invite an untimely season to your party. Create a springtime Paris or Las Vegas in the hall. Even winter can be an appropriate wedding theme if used judiciously. Use themes of snow, cherry blossom and Christmas to evoke a cheery atmosphere.
? Classic theme: Evoke a historical moment with period pieces that bring to mind thoughts of ancient Greece and Rome, or medieval or renaissance culture. Augment the scene with matching attire and a suitable backdrop.
