What better opportunity is there for you to express yourselves as a couple than your wedding day? The theme you choose is an excellent way to showcase the things you both love, whether it’s travelling the world, hitting the festival circuit every summer or you both share you share a passion for the 1950s. The world of wedding themes is diverse, which is exciting, but can also leave you feeling overwhelmed. Here’s some inspiration to help you choose the right wedding theme for your big day.

Vintage wedding theme

Vintage is one of the most popular wedding themes, and it’s not too hard to see why. This theme is very versatile, and the options are endless. You could opt for vintage décor completely inspired by a certain era, or just a few pastel touches here and there, along with some bunting. Whatever you opt for, you can rest assured a vintage themed wedding will make for some fantastic photos.

Travel wedding theme

If you and your other half always seem to be packing your suitcases for somewhere new, a travel wedding theme could be perfect. Choose travel-inspired touches for your big day to make your guests feel like they’re being whisked away to a far away place, including boarding pass save the dates, luggage tag invitations, centrepiece alternatives such as mini globes or flags, and instead of a guestbook, have guests leave messages on postcards from around the world.

Festival wedding theme

Festival wedding themes are all the rage, with lots of couples choosing laidback celebrations full of music and fun. Often, weddings with a festival theme stretch out over the whole weekend, with guests staying in tepees. Think wellies, bunting and lots and lots of fairy lights, and you could even give people wristbands to gain access to your big day!

Fairytale wedding theme

If you’re a bride who’s always dreamed of the perfect fairytale wedding, this one’s for you. This theme is no longer about big, frothy white gowns and pretty pink décor, but it’s now being reimagined with seriously stylish dresses and modern details. You could add a sprinkle of opulent magic to the event with sparkly tablecloths, candelabras and antique photo frames.

Harry Potter wedding theme

If you and your other half are self-confessed Potterheads, why not give into your passion and have a Harry Potter themed wedding? The bouquets could be made from Harry Potter novels and you could serve up Goblet of Fire-themed signature cocktails to your guests. A sorting hat wedding cake will stand out at your reception, and you could use vessels of potion as décor on the tables to add colour and thematic interest.

There’s an abundance of themes to choose from for your big day, so take some time to consider which one is right for you as a couple. It should mirror your interests, but it should also be practical! For example, it’s probably not the best idea to have a festival themed wedding in the heart of winter!
