Keep it simple and classic and everyone will remember YOUR Theme Wedding. They are still alive. My last couple had a Peacock Theme Wedding...blues, greens, the dresses were gorgeous and so was the deco with the feather was the added touch throughout the design.

Great theme. I think that if your going to do a theme, keep it simple and pick one your not going to regret when you look back through your wedding album years from now. Theme weddings are fun.

Themes are fun and I recommend them to my clients often. The roaring 20's is a great idea and if its glammed up with a twist of bling it will be unforgettable so go for it.

I think it sounds great, I am getting married in September and my fiancee' wants to do a fishing theme. However, not just any has to be saltwater fish.

I want to do a fairy tale theme wedding? I have not decided yet. I want each of my bridemaids to try on the glass slipper. none of them will fit it of course!!! then I come down the isle and try on the shoe. It fits perfectly and we get married.... any suggestions???
Guest March 30, 2010
Rare Beauty: That sounds like a really sweet idea! Check out your rental places for a vehicle to leave the church in. We're using a Model T Ford. I know I live in a smaller town but we actually have a place that rents a white wrought iron pumpkin shaped carriage. Also maybe fountains, otherwise I dunno maybe watch Cinderella and other princess movies you might find something you never noticed before and want to incorporate into your ceremony.
Guest doing the Saltwater Fish Theme: Again a super cool idea. I actually did a saltwater fish and island theme for my high school graduation party. My dad goofy as he is (trust me) had a large blue tarp laid over the backyard (because we are no where near a body of water in Nebraska) and had a truck load of sand dumped. He found a net at Hobby Lobby strung it over the house surrounded it with tiki torches and affixed shells, dried coral, and other saltwater things to it. It looked extreme with the hammock we set up for gifts instead of a gift table. Go crazy, you're lucky because you can basically do any bright color which is cool. My fiance likes gangsters and camoflouge lol thats how we ended up with the 20's cuz I'm not doing a camo theme. Guess the gangster thing kinda fit with me to cuz I'm a criminal justice major.

I am an Officiant with Your Special Day Wedding Services and I have performed many Theme Weddings. From the Old West where I was asked to dress up as a Parson (That's a Minister in the Cowboy Days)
A Pirate Wedding,Knights of the Round Table,Life on the Farm Wedding and many more. Themes are fun and allow
your guests and family to step into another world even if it is for just one day. Something they can remember and compare your Wedding to all other "Regular" Weddings and "Hands Down" the most fun.

I big day is set for July 10Th 2010, we have both been married before, but with our last go around he had a big wedding and I had the JP and then phoned everyone and said guess what I am married!! lol So the most important things for us is to have our family and friend with us, something small, fun and yet memorable. We both ride Harley's and have decided on a Harley theme! I guess just some ideas from some of you would help! like I said fun, nothing fancy but memorable

I once photographed a wedding that was held in a horse pasture. The horse actually was the ringbearer, with the rings tied to its saddle. The bride wore a simple white cotton long dress, and carried wildflowers that she picked herself that morning. The groom wore brand new cowboy boots (he was very proud of them!), dark jeans, and a comfortable black shirt with a bolo tie, with turquoise. The pictures came out lovely, and for an album, we designed a more casual scrapbook style with a denim cover. Contact me at I have great affordable photography packages, starting at just $175 for up to two hours of photography.

No, theme weddings are the biggest trends now. I recently shot a wedding with a "shrek" theme. They did their vows in the park, dressed as glamourous ogres and had horns and green make up to boot. There is something adorable about having a sense of humor about things and enjoying yourself, to be truly yourself. Your theme is quite normal, but I would do the theme for the reception only. Have a nice traditional, simple cermoney with a creme or ivory dress (short or long, it doesn't matter) and then for the reception, dress in costume for the roaring 20's and get lots of party decor and backdrops. Do your linen for the tables in creme, silver and black with touches of hot pink and a small, mixed flower arrangement with a feather. Good luck!

Having a Theme is a wonderful idea. I make Kustom Invitations. Please contact me if you would like more information.

It is your "Special Day", in this day and time, it is not tacky to have unique, unusual and non-traditional weddings! I recently planned a "mad hatter" reception for a person who chose to have an "Alice in Wonderland Theme. Do not know where you are located, if your in the tulsa oklahoma area, we would be honored to assist you with all your planning. Thanks! The Trendy Shoppe

You might consider dressing up for your engagement picture to be a part of your save the date cards to get people excited about the theme. It's a good time to let them know what you have in mind. If it's a very unusual theme, perhaps you can refer them to a website that shows what your theme is all about and where they can find clothing that is styled after that era. My company is called Greatest of Days and I'm speaking from an event planner's perspective and just barely touching on this subject. I think that you truly will have one of your greatest of days. Also check out some costume rental places or places that rent out things for theatrical performances.

We are doing a Halloween-themed wedding and allowing everyone to dress in costumes ( well except for the bridesmaids and groomsman ).

Yours sounds like it will be a blast! My daughter is having a Celtic/Wiccan Handfasting ceremony in San Diego. It's much harder to find items for (invitations, officiants). Themes are great as long as they don't require very specific things.

Roaring 20's theme wedding is a great idea, just keep it classy and not tacky.

I'm a wedding planner, designer, coordinator and I love doing themed weddings. I think there is so much that you can do with themes and a "roaring 20's" is great! Good luck and have fun.

Not a lot of people even attempt them...I say go for it. It shows the ability to have fun and now days with all that the world is going thru, why not? I think it is great to see and tons of it up!!!

I think themed weddings are so much fun as long as its not tacky and way over the top. I am thinking about doing a "Carnavale" themed wedding..any ideas?
hocke447334hocke447334Posts: 9 June 2, 2010
I am all about themes actually. I think it makes it a little different and most definitely unique and more memorable, =).

Wedding themes are great! We are doing a beach theme wedding. It helps out with the dress ideas and the favors. Besides, it is the bride and grooms decision! Who cares what others say about your themed wedding. That is pretting cool.
perfe454181perfe454181Posts: 2 June 11, 2010
I'm an wedding and event planner in Pittsburgh, PA. Wedding themes are always great because it can really reflect the bride & groom's personality and also give you the opportunity to kick it up a few notches. For example, maybe you want to recreate where you and your fiance got engaged. It could be neat, let's say, if you got engaged in Paris....have an American in Paris theme or maybe you're in love with the tropics but live no where near the tropics....what a way to take you and your guests to paradise by following a theme like that! The bottom's YOUR day and one you'll remember forever. You do what is right for you!

Help my wedding is Oct 2nd. Its country, western theme, good ole bar-b-q, inside historical round barn. Groom is wearing jeans, boots, hat, white shirt, black vest. Both of us are over 40, so age appropriate needs to be considered as well. I am having an issue on what the bride should wear. Any ideals are greatly appreciated. Thanks.
shann454740shann454740Posts: 3 June 15, 2010
Maybe look at some old western movies where theres a wedding! I def think you should stick with the simple white dress but with a full skirt and maybe some flowers in your hair. It will add color. This picture might give you an idea

Themed weddings are becoming extremely popular. Think outside the box and give your guests something to remember!
