Choosing a theme
I have said it before and I will say it again…. Weddings should be personal. One of the best ways to personalize your wedding is to choose a theme that represents the both of you.
This can literally be anything…. A favourite band, a favourite tv show, favourite author. Once you come up with a theme… get your pen and paper (or your word document if you are anything like my husband) ready.
One of the best ways to personalise your wedding is to choose a theme that represents the both of you.
Name the tables
after your favourite songs or albums. Maybe have artwork from their albums as a background on your design. Lets use Arctic Monkeys as an example…. I could name the tables after the band members, have the tables designs with an image of that band member and on the seating plan I could use a lyric and start with “I bet you look good on the dance floor
… eat up first and when the sun goes down
we will dance the night away”
FAVOURITE TV SHOW
There is so much you can do if you are theming after a TV show. Welcome signs, music, quotes… so so so much. Let’s use Friends as an example…. Have a welcome sign with the Friends logo and colour, maybe have “The one where “name” marries “name”. If it is a hot day, you can have fans laid out on the table with a sign saying “We are huge fans of Friends… here are some fans to keep you cool” – in terms of tables, you can name them after characters, episodes or even favourite saying (if you do choose this one…. Please put “He is her lobster” for the top table!
I love this theme and in fact used this theme for my wedding. love Shakespeare so me being me… I went all out. My friend sung the song “Kissing you” from the Romeo and Juliet movie. Every table was named after a play and on the place cards were my guest’s name as well as the character of the play – Had to not put Macbeth as no one wants to be Lady Macbeth. The centre pieces were old scroll with a feather and ink well and my wedding cake was the balcony with Romeo climbing up to his Juliet.
Marrying abroad is amazing and a great choice, however, sometimes it is nice to bring a bit of home to your wedding. Whether it is adding some tartan to your design or even put your football teams logo on the welcome sign
… I have even named tables after different types of potatoes as the Groom was a potato farmer (I loved this original theme and know for a fact the guests would have found this very amusing)
Have a think, come up with a theme and if you need some inspiration, message me…. I love themes and tend to go a bit overboard (so you may need to reign me in)
