Are themed weddings tacky? We're considering doing a Roaring 20's theme will value taking any opinion on this.
Theme wedding idea is the really great idea and Roaring 20's theme wedding is a really very great idea, just keep it classy.
Themes, can be anything, it does not actually have to be around a saying. Using shades through out or a experience can be a concept... make it beautiful.
I think wedding planner have excellent collections of themes. Themes make your function more memorable and unique.

Themes, can be anything, it does not necessarily have to be around a saying. Using colors through out or a feel can be a theme... Making the theme about you and your future spouse is always a great idea and makes it personal.
I would recommend also thinking of your guest list as far as themes goes. Yes, a Vegas or a Roaring 20s theme can transcend generations and families, but I'm not sure a Dirty South, Krunk, Death Metal or Goth theme would really work if you are inviting people that are not familiar with it.
Naturally, it's your night, but if your theme is obscure it can turn people off.
I have a friend that's REALLY big into the metal band Ghost. And she's mentioned that her boyfriend and she wanted to do a Ghost theme wedding. Again, it's all well and good, but if the guest list included half metal fans and half none metal, it might be a little uncomfortable for those people to hear the lyrics and see the black pope and monk outfits.
Looking to rent a small sized warehouse, bricks and windows style loft in Brooklyn, NYC or NJ for a celebration. Any suggestions?

That sounds like a great idea thanks!!

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 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!
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!
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
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.
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).
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????
We married 12-2-2009 with no formal ceremony. We want to celebrate our union with a family party and celebrate retirement. Any suggestions?
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.

Great themes!!!! It is stunning I will also try this theme in my wedding...
i am doing a winter wonderland theme. white,silver and light blue. snowflakes and crystal. simple and classy. flower girls are wearing tutu style dresses. i like your idea as well.
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
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.
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!
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?
I think it would be great.. it is your event.. plan it your way.. it is a day your remeber enjoy your day.
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.
