September 5, 2017 / Shuttering Hearts

There are countless different types of wedding themes and most of them tend to leave people in awe. If you are looking to establish a real and intimate wedding style that will suit your taste but can’t seem to find a suitable one for you, don’t give up! You’ll find something that will definitely suit you sooner or later. Let us share with you a few tips on planning your desired wedding theme step by step!

1. WHO are you

Before picking a wedding theme, you must first understand yourself:

" Who are you? "

" What do you want to achieve? "

Once you have figured that out, it will be easier for you to decide on your wedding theme. Pick a wedding theme that will not only impress others but at the same time, also speaks on your behalf. Think of various different wedding themes that you think will suit you and list it all down. From there, narrow down the options by seeing which one suits you best. If you are stuck in a dilemma, do consider asking your close friend or relatives to help you on this.

2. WHAT mood/vibe are you going for

One way you can speed up in picking your wedding theme would be to know what it is you are already looking for. How does one do just that? Try thinking what kind of mood or vibe you want to implement on your wedding. Everybody has their own individual preference. Some who has a more laid back personality perhaps prefer a more relaxing vibe.

Brides who are rather demure may implement lovely sentimental session such as slow dance in the end which can lead to a classic romantic wedding theme. Weddings are more than just a mere event as it is one of the ways for the couple to pass down a message. 

3. WHEN will your wedding be held

This is one of the most crucial factors in choosing your wedding theme. The trick for this is to plan ahead. Estimate what kind of weather will it be on that day. If it is monsoon season, then it will be raining quite frequently. One of the steps in choosing your ideal wedding theme is to make sure that your selection won’t be something that is nearly impossible to achieve.

Well, it’s no doubt that by planning ahead you will have more time to finalize the wedding plans. By doing so, you will have a more flexible schedule to focus on other parts of the wedding preparations such as brainstorming creative wedding props ideas. Since the weather is unpredictable and can change any second, make sure to always think of a plan B just in case something were to happen.

4. WHERE is the venue of your wedding

Choosing venues can indirectly influence your decision-making on deciding which wedding theme are suitable for you. Make sure that the expectations that you set are realistic and reachable. Upon picking the venue, you must also consider your guests who will be attending your wedding. You wouldn’t want your guests to drive for hours, crossing more than extra miles just to reach your wedding venue. (It's exhausting!)

5. WHY this colour

Time for picking all your favourite colours and transform them into your very own personal event! This is the time where you can greedily fill your wedding full of your favourite shades of colours. However, do keep in mind that different colours will have different outcomes to the wedding theme. For example, blue colour will make the theme look a bit more calming while green colour conveys a softer nature appearance.

Picking colours might not be as simple as it sounds. Since every colour represents a different something, you would want to choose the best suitable colour. Before deciding on a particular colour to use on your wedding day, make sure that you get approval from your other half too. After all, the wedding is for the both of you.

6. HOW is your attire

Yes, attire can affect on deciding your final wedding theme decision either. It is important that your attire fits the theme. Otherwise, you will look like a sore thumb and you don’t want that to happen to you and your other half on your very special once in a lifetime day. Being the bride and groom, you and your other half will definitely be the constant spotlight during the wedding. You would want your guests to be awed when the both of you walk down the aisle together.

Brides who have a quirky side may try on a short and tea length wedding dress, which can be a plus point to the mystical wedding theme. People who attended the wedding will then remember the bride for dressing like a mythical fairy. Keep in mind that the colours play a big part in choosing the final wedding theme too.

Planning your own wedding might be fun yet stressful at the same time. That is why wedding planners exist. After answering these 6Ws, you may start to have a rough idea on how to select wedding themes that you like the most from a thousand ideas you found online or through Pinterest. Starting finding wedding colours, dress and pin them on your wedding board. Always remember to stick to your final wedding theme once you have selected.
