The Growing Interest of Themed Weddings
There is a growing trend in weddings lately. These are themed weddings. What exactly is a themed wedding? That’s simple to answer. Just like any event, a themed wedding is merely a wedding with a whole uniting theme. It isn’t your typical, classical wedding. It can be quite different and unique.
There is a large variety of wedding themes out there. It really depends on your own creativity and preference. Here are just a look at a few examples.
There are seasonal wedding themes. This may seem obvious in some cases, or may seem that it happens a lot already when people pick certain aspects of the season to amplify, like beautiful flowers or a nice winter or summer setting. But it goes beyond just that. Autumn can be about a beautiful display of reds and oranges, while Winter would be a much more serene, wonderland of snow and ice.
There are nature themes. Like seasonal themes in a way, these focus on more direct aspects. Maybe a particular flower, or animal, or insect. A wedding focused around your favorite animal or butterfly or flower. It could also be a certain location or scenery. Maybe you have a soft spot for waterfalls, or rivers, or water in general. You could also love a certain type of tree, or gemstone and rock, or even a certain time of day like dawn or dusk or night.
There are cultural themes. These can be very old custom and tradition filled weddings for your heritage. It’s all about embracing where your ancestors came from and who you are inside. Even if you can’t afford to have the wedding in the country your parents, grandparents, or other ancestors were born, you can create your own little Japan, or China, or England, or France, or whatever country it is in your hometown or city. Bring in unique decorations, wardrobe, food and music to make the wedding more personal.
There are historic themes. Did you grow up loving the times long ago? Maybe the glamorous 20s, or the imperial ages of exploration, or medieval times, or even ancient times. Whatever the period is, you can revive it in your wedding and bring more creativity to an important personal day.
There are hobby/interest themes. If you are an artist like me, then an artistic theme may be your preference. Liven the place up with colors, paintings, elaborations of creativity. You may be more into writing, going with a poetry theme, or maybe even music, spicing not just the hearing sense with wonderful sounds but filling the visual with sights of instruments, music notes, and other creative items. There are also activity themes like going horseback riding, or kayaking, or other outdoor things like this. It may also be a sports theme.
The important thing is to pick a wedding theme that fits your personality and interests. Don’t pick something just to be different. Pick something to express yourself in a different and more personal way.
You don’t want to go overboard either. This is still your wedding. You want the theme to compliment the unity of two people, not overshadow it. It’s not about seeing how many objects or items about the theme you can jam into the wedding. It’s about creating a balance to really express yourself in a more unique way to your friends and family.
Have fun, make it personal and romantic, and your wedding theme will be a hit. Just enjoy yourself. It is your special day after all.
