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 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.
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.
Theme are very fun! I think that having themes makes it fun memoriable!!!!!
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?
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??
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
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
Go for it. Your event will definately be memorable. Enjoy yourself and have fun.
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.

jayeboo, call my cell 317-490-7894 (Suz)
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!
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
is a Dirty South theme ok if you are going to be playing al different types of hiphop/rap songs!
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.

Set up a queen-like chair in the middle of the dance floor. as each bridesmaid walks in, she sits in the chair (have them barefoot). Your father or the father of the groom tries to fit each girl. Then you walk in and sit, he puts on the shoe. You stand, and your king arrives, the father takes your hands and and the grooms hand together, who in turn escorts you to the dance floor for the first dance.
I think it would be great.. it is your event.. plan it your way.. it is a day your remeber enjoy your day.
I am working on my wedding that is June 18,2011 and I still dont know if I should have a theme for my wedding or just put a bunch of things together. I am at a point of what to do? what to do?

you need to figure out the following:
*# of guests]
*budget (what do you want to spend on your wedding? $5,000, $10,000, $15,000 or more?)
*style of wedding: traditional? modern? art deco? princess? african queen? caribbean?
*what season? June is a summer month. You may want a beach theme or a beach wedding.
*venue: hotel? nightclub? gallery? open space like a rooftop? country? downtown cityscape?
*colors: summer colors are pretty unlimited because you can get mostly any flower you like. Talk to your fiance about what colors you both like. I just did a wedding with purples, lavendar, light blue and white. We had Iris and hydrangea florals and royal blue dresses. Since there was a lot of mirrors at the bride's reception room, we opted for white linen with the purple and blue florals and her menu cards, mass cards, and welcome banner were royal blue and white. So, you see, you may want to pick one or two colors and match everything for a nice, elegant look.
I give initial free consultations via phone & email, so drop me a line if you need more advice.
I also do photography and design services, so keep this in mind. I can help you with that.
All the best and good luck!

If you can't do a photo booth, do get two large Hollywood posters and a polaroid camera. Set them up on easels or attach the posters to the wall. This is a good photo op. You guests can take photos along with two classic movies/stars such as Bogart, Tracy, Hepburn, or a silent star.
my theme is a fairy tale wedding in december the snow falling as i walk down to meet my groom an my flower girls with the angle wings on 2 walking in front of me an 2 behind me to represent his angle been sent to him my colors are pool blue,silver,ivory to give a soft look for my theme

Great themes!!!! It is stunning I will also try this theme in my wedding...
A Roaring 20's party can be elegant and fun. Tall vases with black or white feathers, lots of "pearls" on the tables or as napkin wrap, boas and top hats as party favors for your guests to take part in the theme. Live music with lots of horns and jazz. As long as you are marrying "the right one", the rest is all icing on the cake! Best wishes.

We married 12-2-2009 with no formal ceremony. We want to celebrate our union with a family party and celebrate retirement. Any suggestions?
i really want to select a theme for my wedding... im mexican and my fiancee is salvadorean.. and ive searched and searched for some ideas that my family and his family could enjoy.... please any ideas????
where do you live?
if you want to celebrate your cultures (and this is a great way of bringing both sides of the family together) you can do a salvadorean and mexican combination of decor, elegant design work with a crest with your initials and your two flags from your countries; and combine cuisine from both cultures and use the colors from your flags in your flowers, for example, red, green, white and blue.
you can get a someone who sews to make accessories for your bridal party, let's say, pocket scarfs for the men and sashes for the bridesmaids dresses in the colors of your countries flags as well.
The bride and groom should dress tradtional, but have touches of the colors in flowers and accessories. I would also have favors, one that represents mexico and one that represents el salvador (you could do this with trinkets, candy, or order small flags, along with a tradtional wedding favor).
Hope I am not too late. I did the country western theme and the cutest thing was the horseshoe that I had a handle welded to and used that for my flowers - the florist created a wonderful arrangement on it.
my wedding colors are pink an white an our wedding is set for april 2,2011. anyone have any ideas for a them PLZ. let me know
I think themes are great - if they have a meaning to the couple and can be translated throughout the festivities... my partner loves to travel, and we've adopted a "journey" and travel theme - but it's about us and not just a prom decorating idea. Cheers!
I believe that it's your day and as long as you're happy and satisfied who cares what someone else thinks. I think the roaring 20's is an excellent idea!

For a Roaring twenties theme, I suggest looking into the art deco style. Art deco can be very classy & sophisticated, considered "ultra modern" at the time. You can Google "Art Deco weddings" to find lots of ideas, but going to www.art-deco-style.com/index.html is a good starting point.
I am a graphic artist whose specialty is offering custom wedding invitations for theme weddings. You can see my work at: www.calligraphicstudio.com . Theme weddings are the most fun, and are the ones that your guests will remember the longest!
I am planning a Tiffany Blue/Chocolate Brown wedding. I haven't decided on all the specifics, but I have an idea.
