Today an emerging and very popular trend in weddings is the theme wedding. The theme wedding allows you to express your own individuality while having the traditional element in your wedding. The theme wedding can be just about anything you can imagine, and though they may take a little more work and a great deal of thought, they are well worth it.
One popular theme wedding is the Renaissance wedding. This takes a little more work, but many of the materials you will need are not too hard to find. The very first step in creating the Renaissance wedding theme is the wedding party's attire. For the bride there are wedding gowns readily available in the Renaissance style, and you may even find gowns for your attendants in the same style. If this is too difficult, it is recommended that you have your wedding gown tailor made along with those of your bride's maids. Another important aspect of this wedding theme is picking the appropriate setting, decorations and colors. When you are deciding on this part of your wedding, keep in mind what colors and décor dominated that time era.
Another very popular wedding theme is the fairytale wedding.
This often involves the notorious Cinderella. With this theme, of course you will want a wedding gown that resembles that of the famous Cinderella gown, and your decorations will closely match this. It is very easy to find the pumpkin carriage drawn by white horses for table centerpieces, and little glass slippers are nice to offer to your guests filled with candy. If you really want to put the icing on the cake, you may be able to hire a carriage with horses for the bride to arrive in and the couple to depart in. Some people find that it is much easier to create this theme by having their wedding and reception at one of the Disney resorts. When you choose to hold your wedding at one of their resorts, Disney has available a real Cinderella Carriage for the bride and groom.
Another wonderful theme, is the winter fantasy theme. Often the colors for this wedding are silver, blue and white, which look striking when put together. For this theme you will want to have several ice sculptures created as centerpieces and decorate the chapel and reception room with artificial evergreens that have had a light dusting of snow sprayed on them. Decorate these evergreens with clear white Christmas lights. Silver and white snowflakes hanging from the ceiling top of the atmosphere for the winter theme. With a little imagination, this theme wedding can truly dazzling anyone.
A couple themed wedding ideas for summer include the seaside wedding, or the Hawaiian themed wedding. For the Hawaiian themed wedding you will want to pick very bright, tropical colors, and maybe lots of South Sea items. For the seaside wedding, try keeping your colors softer; maybe some pale pinks, tans and blues. Seashells will of course play a big role in this themed wedding.
With a little imagination, it is easy to make your special day, the fantasy you have always dreamed of.
