When you begin your wedding planning, one of the first tasks is to choose a wedding style or even a wedding theme. This is one of the first tasks because without a style or theme you will find it difficult to make decisions on things like venue location, transport, your wedding dress & even your wedding favors.

Planning a wedding can be a minefield of decision making & endless discussions about colors, fabrics, accessories & decorations, but by choosing a theme you can make all of that a bit easier & help to narrow down the list of choices available when it comes to making those all important decisions.

Some of the most popular wedding themes are beach weddings & those centered on romance. Both of these easily lend themselves to weddings & make your decision making process a whole lot easier. For beach weddings colors tend to be blues & sea greens teamed with white, sea shells, sand & pebbles provide coordinating decorations, motifs & even wedding favors, whilst the bride can choose a simple flowing gown for her wedding dress. A romantic theme will most likely include the colors red or pink. Roses, candles & hearts are the order of the day & will feature everywhere from the table centers to the wedding programs.

As an alternative many brides are choosing the season of the wedding for their wedding theme. A fall wedding will include fall colors of orange, brown & muted gold's, pumpkins filled with seasonal flowers & foliage dress the tables & the guests are given leaf shaped bookmarks as wedding favors. Summer weddings call for outdoor ceremonies & likewise receptions, with seasonal blooms such as roses & peonies, a light wedding breakfast menu or seasonal buffet on the lawns of a grand country house keeps the guests happy, whilst at dusk, the dance floor is subtly lit by paper lanterns & live music keeps everyone dancing into the night.
Your choice of wedding theme is really only limited by your imagination & creativity (& perhaps your budget!). Anything is possible, be it a casino/James Bond theme or an elegant 1920's soiree, it really is easier to plan your wedding if you have a theme in mind.

Coming up with a theme may take some discussion though. Sit down with your fiancé & talk about what you would like, this is also a good opportunity to prioritize those elements of your wedding that are the most important to you. Doing this will help you assign your budget much easier. Make sure that the theme you pick is one that appeals to you both or if you cannot agree on one, try combining two themes for something new & unique. After all your wedding should be about your tastes & personalities.
Take some inspiration from celebrity weddings, internet resources & bridal magazines. Ask around your family & friends about weddings they have been to or even their own. They will be able to give you lots of advice about choosing venues, decorations & creating an air of authenticity within your theme.

You will find a wide choice of themes which could be applied to your wedding. Choosing the perfect one for your wedding is all about choosing one that is all about your tastes, style & personalities. This helps to make it unique & personal to you both & will leave your guests talking about it long after the day is over.
