Last post I went over some tips to help decide an event style. Your wedding doesn’t have to have a theme, but many couples today are opting for one as a way of showing guests a side to their unique personalities.
Check out some of the hottest themes of the moment.
1) Vintage 1920’s
You can keep it modern and incorporate touches of the 1920s with art deco design, feathers, pearls, a bird cage veil, etc. Or go full out 1920s and dress your bridesmaids as flappers, hire a jazz band, use antique dishes. Have parasols, fedora hats and boas for your guests to include them in the theme. Find inspiration in The Great Gatsby, look for art by Erte, and fashion by Jean Patou and Coco Chanel.
You don’t need to be a die hard Twilight fan in order to fall in love with Edward and Bella’s wedding from Breaking Dawn – Part One. Many couples are now looking to recreate the enchanted forest theme for their own special day. You can go authentic and hold the ceremony in the woods or you can use lighting and floral arrangements to create the magical forest indoors.
3) Elegant Country
Country themed weddings don’t have to appear homespun. You can use china, crystal, and white linens on their wood tables and have an electric bucking bull, square dancing, and a fiddler or country band as entertainment.
4) Jewel Tones
Many weddings today are influenced by the rich jewel tones found in countries such as India and Morocco. These colors can be incorporated in the flowers, linens and overall decor. Think emerald, deep purple, blue, red. You can combine colors to create a color palate for the wedding style or just stick to one color. Peacock feathers and colors are very in right now.
Neon fashion is trending everywhere and it has officially entered the wedding scene! If you want a bright, bold and fun aspect to your big day, think about adding some neon elements. Try pairing a POC (pop of color) with a neutral color to make it easier on the eyes.
