Weddings have evolved over the past decades, stemming from simple ceremonial rituals that have blossomed today into a whole-day event complete with pre-nuptial, post-nuptial, and celebratory reception parts. In the 21st century, weddings have a theme – a particular setting or style that is to be adapted in all aspects of the said celebration.
Wedding themes have come a long way, from getting coordinating colors for all dresses, decorations, and elements up to today’s elaborately themed weddings starting from the stationery font to the reception hall decorations, and up to the reception entertainer’s song choices. These carefully planned themes become the wedding’s own recognizable mark, a symbol of the couple’s unique thumbprint.
If you and your fiance are thinking of taking a pass on wedding themes, then you are definitely missing out on a spectacular treat. Wedding themes might seem like such an extra expense to the entire budget, given that weddings are expensive on their own, adding a theme might just balloon those numbers exponentially. On the other hand, here’s our take on why you should have a wedding theme!
Wedding themes make the day unique.
Two different individuals come together to form a union so entirely different that it becomes its own being – this is marriage. With the bride and the groom’s personality mixed in, getting a wedding theme adds to the day’s uniqueness. It may represent the couple’s own identity or it may be the bride and groom’s own tastes blended together, like putting a customized seal or stamp onto everything related to the wedding day.
Wedding themes make the day cohesive.
Especially for the wedding planner, suppliers, and vendors, wedding themes serve as a compass for them to properly understand what you and your partner want to achieve and for them to also be guided as to how everything is to come together during the day itself. From the save-the-dates up to the wedding favors, wedding themes help make everything look uniform, connected, and united.
Wedding themes are pro-season.
Of course, planning a garden wedding during the rainy months would be absurd but then wedding themes help direct us to what is in and what is out for any specific season. Being season-appropriate would make it easy to source your blooms for the centerpieces, your produce for the menu, and all other elements needed for the wedding day. Hence, getting the right wedding theme during the perfect season would aid in making planning easier and smoother.
Wedding themes are fun.
Simply put, these themes make the wedding interesting not only for the couples but for the guests as well. With creativity as your only limit, getting to build your own little paradise through your wedding theme – be it building a magical forest indoors for the ceremony, designing a fairytale light installation for the reception, or reconstructing your engagement night in Paris right here in the USA for everyone else to experience. These enchanting themes add personality, identity, and charm to your very own wedding day, which makes it absolutely unforgettable for everyone present as well.
