Talk of wedding themes can be very hit or miss with a lot of couples. Some couples jump on the idea while others are bit gun-shy. It’s quite understandable why one would go against the idea of a theme wedding. After all, if you’re looking for classic and timeless, a theme wedding might put you in a tough spot. Choose a theme that is trendy at the time and you’ll end up with wedding pictures that no one understands. Of course, if you’re crazy, fun and carefree, a themed wedding might just be the perfect way for the two of you to begin your marriage. So here are a few fun ones we’ve found with a little digging:
1.) Scary theme. We’re talking Halloween or Zombie theme. You can either go all out, with the bride and groom painted to look like real, scary zombies, or if you can add little touches in to a still very elegant and classy wedding. Think orange and black cocktail drinks or skeleton pieces of art as table settings. Plus, we guarantee you your wedding will be the talk of everyone in both of your families, forever.
2.) Movie theme. This one is quite broad, so we’re leaving the gist of it up to you. Basically, you both choose a movie to plan your wedding around. Have the two of you always wanted to be secret agents? How about a James Bond theme. Your man gets to wear his amazing tux, while all your guests can dress up in their dressiest outfits. It would be sophisticated and fun. Or maybe you guys could go a different direction, and choose something whimsical like Alice in Wonderland. With all the movies out there your options really are endless!
3.) Geek/Nerd theme. Have an obsession with video games? Legos? Anything that could be considered just a tad bit nerdy? Run with it! People are owning their geekiness like no other these days, so why stop there? A lego-themed wedding would not only be the talk of the town, but everyone would undoubtedly feel like a 7-year old again. Just imagine the nostalgia! Plus, if you think about it, your friends are probably all somewhat nerdy or geeky as well (we tend to be friends with people similar to ourselves) so they would probably love it!
4.) Superhero theme. There’s nothing wrong with letting your “secret identities” show for a day! You can go all out, or just have the groom wear his Superman shirt under his tux while you keep your Wonder Woman undies under wraps until later that night.
5.) Fantasy theme. The fantasy theme can come from a number of places, from Fantasia to Lord of the Rings. You can wear fairy wings down the aisle, or you can choose a more subtle approach, like having vines twist through the Arbor you’ll be standing under. Just imagine how beautiful it could be!
