May and June herald the beginning of the wedding season. If you and your fiancé are planning a wedding this year, congratulations! You probably have many questions regarding the big day, such as what the theme should be. Ideally, the theme should reflect you and your spouse and your love for each other. Here are some creative, unique themes you can make your own.
Book Series Themes
Many engaged couples turn to their favorite book settings to plan their wedding days. Harry Potter and The Hunger Games are two highly popular choices, but almost any book series can work. For instance, if you and your spouse are Lord of the Rings fans, you could have an outdoor wedding reminiscent of Middle Earth. For a Harry Potter wedding, add touches like Hogwarts house-themed place cards or a cake shaped like a cauldron or the Sorting Hat.
If you’ve always wanted a winter wedding, consider a Christmas theme. December is the “off season” for most wedding coordinators and suppliers, so you should be able to book services and buy decorations for reasonable prices. If you want your theme to be a bit less traditional than Christmas suggests, center it around a work like How the Grinch Stole Christmas or A Christmas Carol.
Most brides want to feel like they’re in a fairytale on their wedding day. If your groom loves fairytales too or if your appreciation of them is a big part of your relationship, consider a Disney theme. A rented horse-drawn carriage can evoke Cinderella, while rose centerpieces under glass are a memorable icon of Beauty and the Beast.
