Creating a theme, or even thinking about what sort of theme you want for your wedding is tough. Knowing what you and your partner want is one thing, but creating something that your guests will understand is another. Me and my partner are quite similar in what we like/want which is very handy when it comes to planning things, but not all couples are the same – something I find very exciting.
Many people think that a theme for a wedding should be a solidified agreement between the Bride and Groom, settling for middle ground – I think not. There should be parts of both of them, it’s a special day for both the Bride and the Groom, so they should have aspects of the wedding that reflect their personalities. I have recently been in contact with a photographer who specialises in alternative weddings and there are so many ways in which you can reflect the Bride and Groom through visionary tools. Thinking outside of the box is key to bringing both parties together as a unit, no matter how quirky you are. I love the idea of bringing fun and exciting ideas into one, something that intrigued me into the wedding business in the first place.
Like I said at the start, finding something your guests will understand is something that definitely needs to be considered. Your guests having a good time is a key way to making your day fun, vibrant and memorable. Make sure to incorporate a general idea of excitement for your wedding guests; karaoke, barn dancing or even a cocktail making lesson. Things like this will help your guests remember what a wonderful wedding it was.
It is incredibly important to mix the Brides and Grooms ideas together to show them as one, something marriage symbolises after all. But always include your guests, create that party atmosphere that they will always remember!
