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.

Rare Beauty -
I love it too. You may also consider have two youngsters in costume and costumed royalty announce you and your husband as you enter the reception room. They can have trumpets, scrolls and pillows with "glass" slippers.

Jayeboo:
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 liseramos@msn.com

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.

@ RareBeauty
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.

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

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?

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.
congrats!!

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.

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 http://favoride-sitepics.favorideas.com/rustic-wedding-mon1l.jpg

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'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.

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.

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.

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

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!
