3 Foolproof Ways to Pick Your Wedding Theme

Collage of Pictures Using Oranges and the Color Orange as a Wedding ThemeBefore you turn your nose up at the idea of a theme wedding, understand that we’re not talking exclusively about an “Under the Sea” themed affair or 40s Swing themed nuptials. Just as we talk about themes in books and film, a theme for your wedding is simply a unifying factor that can be found in just about every aspect of the event, from the décor to the cake to attire worn by the wedding party. Deciding on a theme is an important first step to planning a wedding, but the task can often feel overwhelming. Today, we’ve got three simple, foolproof techniques you and your partner-to-be can use to make this important decision.

1. Brainstorm

Grab a notebook, a pen, and your fiancé and just start reminiscing. Think about your first few dates or those activities, pastimes, or hobbies that you share that first attracted you to each other. Did you both enjoy hiking or playing video games, watching old detective films or blowing off steam over a few rounds of darts at the tavern down the street? Did you both come from the same small town or have the same favorite local band? No matter how small or silly they may seem, these little shared moments can bloom into a full-blown theme.

2. Let the Pictures Tell a Story

Open up your Facebook or Instagram account (and have your partner open up theirs) and start scrolling through pics of you and your fiancé together. Are there pictures of you traveling together or enjoying some leisure activity together?

3. Find the Pattern in Your Pinning

Pinterest is an amazing resource for finding ideas for your wedding and, seriously, you should pin to heart’s content. But making sense of all that pinning means you need to take a step back, look at your boards and pins, and try to see if any pattern emerge. Do you tend to re-pin more rustic-looking or country chic-inspired decorating ideas? Do your tastes lean more toward a colorful, exotic esthetic or are you nerd-chic through and through? Look at where your tastes lie and plan your theme around what pleases you.
