Everything You Need to Know About Picking Out a Wedding Theme

Nowadays, planning a wedding starts with choosing a theme. No matter how much your budget is, you can easily work around with it as long as you have already chosen your wedding theme. Since themes are a great way to get ideas for your wedding decoration, you can easily go online and start looking for something that will inspire you. 

A wedding theme, in a nutshell, is simply a style that you have chosen to use for your wedding day, from your wedding decorations to invitations, dress, and even your menu. You can easily choose a theme by simply picking out a specific color or following a motif out of something you enjoy: a particular era, book, movie, or anything else that matters to you.

The question here is: do you really need a wedding theme and how do you pick one out that’s best suited for you. Here are some of the commonly used wedding themes that you may opt for: 

Beach Wedding

If you would like to have a laidback and peaceful wedding, you can opt for a beach wedding. Plenty of couples use this option, especially if they would like to go on a destination wedding. The Philippines is a popular destination for the number of beautiful beaches where you can get married in. You can have a sunset or sunrise beach wedding, depending on your preference. 


Lately, there has been a huge craze over vintage wedding themes. Perfect for a garden wedding, you can serve tea, crumpets, and other ideas on pieces of whimsical plates and cups. This will add a dainty appeal that will be perfect for your chosen wedding theme.


Another popular wedding theme that you can go for is a rustic/country wedding, inspired by the natural beauty of the fields and barnyards. This is also a good idea if you would like to have a simple yet beautifully decorated wedding. At the same time, there are a number of DIY projects that you can easily follow for your wedding details. These will save you a lot of money when planning your rustic wedding. 

Winter Wonderland

If you’ve always been a fan of snow, you can opt for a winter wonderland theme for your wedding. The good thing about this theme is that you do not need to spend too much money on your wedding decorations because the snow alone will be something that you can take advantage of. Other than that, your wedding colors will mostly include whites, blues, and silvers; some of the easy to find products available in the market.

Because of how easy it is to establish a theme for a wedding, you can easily plan one out by simply choosing a particular color you would like to use for your big day. This choice alone can already be used as a theme because you get to go for other wedding accessories that match it. In doing so, you have already created a theme for your wedding without any difficulty.

Finding out what theme to use for your wedding largely depends on what you and your fiancé are interested in. If you both like literature, particularly Jane Austen books, you may use ‘Pride and Prejudice’ as the theme for your wedding and have everything prepared with that era in mind. Another wedding theme that you can pick out is if you are fond of celebrating Halloween, you can arrange that easily.

No matter what wedding theme you pick, you have to ensure that it is something you and your fiancé are both interested in. It’s what makes your relationship special so make sure that you pick one out carefully. You do not need to follow the bandwagon or current trend in picking out a theme for your wedding day. All you need to do is decide what you both are interested in and use that as a theme; whether it’s a Star Wars wedding or a rustic theme.
