How to Choose the Perfect Wedding Scheme for the Big Day

By Charles Hopkins Published 05/26/2007 | Marriage

Since a wedding is considered by the majority as the biggest occasion in human existence, people strive to create special memories of it. Having a wedding theme has become the most popular way to celebrate the union of couples. In the past, couples have turned to different styles in order to experience the magic that comes along with each theme. There are several ways to plan a wedding, and a lot of schemes to carry them out.

Nowadays, weddings are planned according to a specific theme. Whether the couple wants it formal, traditional, or totally unorthodox, preparing the wedding entails planning its every phase. Even if it's quite a hassle to have to live up to certain specifics, there are a lot of resources to help us accomplish the right schemes and style needed for the big day.

Choosing a Wedding Theme

The choice of wedding theme will influence the mood or atmosphere on your wedding day. Thus, selecting a particular theme is one of the most crucial decisions you will ever have to make.

Tip 1: Daydream

One essential tip in choosing the perfect style of wedding is to daydream about it. We may not admit it, but most weddings are realizations of how we would want the occasion to be. So dream all you want and let your fantasies come to life.

Tip 2: Write Them Down

Since choosing the wedding theme is a huge decision to make, the couple should share ideas and personal interests. Write each of your choices on paper, from wedding colors, to locations, and down to the very minute details. Check common interests and take it from there. You can get hints for the right theme from your color choices. For example, if you both like blue then you can opt to have a beach-inspired wedding.

Tip 3: Check Availability

Make sure that you choose a theme that won't give you a hard time. Popular themes are not a problem since most supply stores carry several items that will help you in the preparation. But if you want a rather unconventional theme, check if you will be able to find resources for the things that you will need before you really decide on it. Because chances are, you will have one theme too many during your big day.

The Perfect Theme

All themes are perfect as long as you both wanted and are comfortable with it. Since it involves a lot of thought, research, and probably debate, the theme that you come up with should really be how you want your special day to turn out.

Before you finalize your decision, ensure that your partner is agreeable to it. Make sure that you stick with it and that you choose it not because it is the most "sough-after" in society right now.

Having the perfect wedding theme can still come true even if you are tied to a budget. Especially if you have plenty of time to prepare for it, you will be able to achieve your dream wedding.

The right theme should be a reflection of both your personalities. Like, why would you choose a beach-themed wedding if you both hate the sea? And why would a nature theme be your choice if you're not the outdoorsy types? People should be reminded of who both of you are even for years to come. They will probably forget every detail of the wedding but they will certainly remember the atmosphere on that one special day.
