I think all weddings today should have a theme.
You could do a cocktail wedding,Island theme etc.Weddings need to be jazzed up,it's the same old thing every weekend.
is a Dirty South theme ok if you are going to be playing al different types of hiphop/rap songs!
Amethyst is more of a color than a theme. You can do this with picking the right flowers, table cloths and accessories. You can even buy pieces of amethyst and sprinkle them around your flowers. Flowers with purple shades like iris, hydrangea will look lovely. You can have your bridesmaids where a gown with these colors and matching bouquets and have your room lighted in hues of the same color. You can have your escort cards printed with these colors as well as your menu cards, thank you cards and favors. If you'd like a free consultation, drop me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org

I am the owner of Studio Brides & Events. We have done many, Many, MANY theme weddings - I LOVE designing theme weddings! I need more information about you and your fiance to give you ideas/advice. This is FREE so don't worry.
I am glad to try to help!
I want my wedding colors to be Amethyst and White. but I just cant find a (theme) any one have any wedding theme ideas????? I'm in need of help!!!!
Your idea sounds absolutely lovely. If you are planning to go all out, you could have invitations that are scrolls or ones that read "Hear Ye Hear Ye...".
I'd love to see what else you come up with.
Go for it. Your event will definately be memorable. Enjoy yourself and have fun.
How fun .You two should go for it .It is your day and I think roaring 20's would be so so much fun for you and your guests
As an officiant, I absolutely adore themed weddings. They can really capture the personalities of the couple and make the event truly their own. They are definitely the weddings that stand out in my memory. This coming Saturday I am officiating a 50s themed wedding in a bowling alley. I can't wait! Any wedding can be tacky or classy whether it has a theme or not. It's all in how you pull it off. Besides, I think they can be much more fun to plan. They force you to be a little more creative and I think we get inherent pleasure from that. Best Wishes! Rev. Ann Fuller, Melbourne, FL
I want to have a cool, funky, fun 40th and thought 70's theme..suggestions?? I thought fuzzy dice as invites, disco ball and full on dress-up required (jump suits and all), dj playing the greats and what else??
My daugher is getting married Oct. 31, 2010. Her theme is, of course, Halloween. Guests are encourage to come in costume. The bride will wear an ivory dress (probably carry calla lillies, too.) The groom will dress in a black tux with a red-lined black cape. They won't wear a lot of make-up and go overboard, but they will do some. At the reception there will be a "candy bar" where we'll have containers with different kinds of candy, then treat bags that the guests can fill up themselves. I plan on using fake skulls with a hole cut in the top to do floral designs, and put a variety of clear votive candles around it. There'll be Halloween type decorations. Any other suggestions?
Theme are very fun! I think that having themes makes it fun memoriable!!!!!
you can actually go to school for it....though it's not "interning" it is a lot for hands on. you should look online at the things available in your area. i'm pretty sure you'll be able to find someone teaching the basics of planning weddings. the just help you understand the ins and outs of the trade.
i like when weddings have themes. but i agree with some of the others that you just shouldn't take it overboard. if both you really like the 20s then keep that theme in mind when picking out your gown and the bridesmaid dresses, flowers, centerpieces, colors, etc. but that doesn't mean you have to go all out and have all music from the 20s or have flapper girls and boas. but that's just my two cents.
Your wedding should speak of you and your spouse. Personalize the theme to something that the 2 of you enjoy, like or are fans of.

I found a site called The Camera Depot and they have all kinds of themes in wedding cameras and personalized wedding favors- adorable stuff! I just bought a white satin guest book for $12 and free shipping.
Any ideas for a Carnavale/Mardi Gras themed wedding?
Themed weddings are becoming extremely popular. Think outside the box and give your guests something to remember!
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.
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 line....it's YOUR day and one you'll remember forever. You do what is right for you!
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.

I am an event planner / coordinator and themes are great. A theme really lets your unique style come out and can be lots of fun for the guest.
I am all about themes actually. I think it makes it a little different and most definitely unique and more memorable, =).
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?
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 fun...live it up!!!
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.
Roaring 20's theme wedding is a great idea, just keep it classy and not tacky.
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.
We are doing a Halloween-themed wedding and allowing everyone to dress in costumes ( well except for the bridesmaids and groomsman ).
My mother is turning 50, and need some help with themes. Please help me out with any ideas you may have.
We are also doing a 20s/30s themed speakeasy wedding...i have tons of ideas...our is april 2011...when is yours...contact me...we could exchange things we wont use again and both save money! i m @aol.com
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.
looking to have a party for my new production company and an album release part for my new artist and he will perform live
Having a theme is an awesome idea! I am with En-sight...An Event Planning Firm and having a themes brings in the unique elements of your and your soon-to-be spouse's personalities. If you have any questions...email us at email@example.com or check us out on the web www.en-sight.org.
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

Having a Theme is a wonderful idea. I make Kustom Invitations. Please contact me if you would like more information.
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!
Oooo... That would be so Fun!! hey if they're tacky I take the cake.. mine's Alice in Wonderland.. vintage style!
