The saying goes, “something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue” and it’s an age-old tradition that most brides follow. But taking this tradition to the next level and creating an entire wedding theme out of something blue is creative, cute, and an easy way to choose your wedding colors.
This theme is simple. Incorporate blue into everything! Blue shoes, sapphire jewels, navy accent décor, and of course blue suites! Anywhere you can add a touch of something blue – go for it! You can range your blues from aqua, sky, baby, cornflower, steel, royal, and more.
Barnyard barbeque themed weddings can mean something a bit different to every couple. With that said, the overall theme here is going to be rustic, outdoors, and of course a menu full of everyone’s favorite BBQ.
Since this is a broad theme feel free to adjust throughout the process. For instance, you can send out a barn wedding invitation featuring a cute illustration so your guests get the vibes, but when it comes to your wedding day you can focus more on the rustic venue and whimsical farmhouse vibes as opposed to being so literal. Burlap accents, burgundy floral arrangements, and a naked cake are all staples of this theme.
Modern Art Deco
Think upscale, luxury, and contemporary. Throwing a modern art deco wedding works best if you splurge on the wedding venue. An art museum, state-of-the-art hotel, or an avant-garde rooftop lounge are all perfect settings for your modernized wedding.
A black and white color scheme is the best choice, but adding touches of metallic like copper, rose gold, or silver accents will give pop to your design.
A timeless choice is a classic, traditional wedding. Red rose bouquets, a delicate white iced cake, and a bridal gown for the books! A classic bridal wedding is perfect for a traditional couple or a bride whose groom understands what it means when everyone says it’s her day.
Another option for a classic theme is pretty in pink. We’re talking white and pink peonies, a princess dress, and diamonds galore! A nice sit-down dinner is vital for a traditional wedding reception and a church wedding is ideal.
Whatever theme you go with, incorporating old traditions with new age design ideas will give you the perfect balance of classic and fun sending you off with a wedding you’ll always remember.
