Planning your big day is so much easier if you have a wedding theme in place. It will tie your whole look together and give you a starting point from which to work and the details will fall into place. Need some inspiration? Here are five fabulous wedding themes that are hot in 2013.
An English garden wedding sounds just like a dream, doesn’t it? Something out of a fairy tale or a Jane Austen novel. Imagine vintage gardens and the bride wearing long, billowy sleeves, intricate lace back bridal gowns with illusion necklines accompanied by long, traditional veils, cloche veils and even pretty braided headbands. For decor, think English-flower-garden-themed centerpieces, sophisticated, low and lush displays and carefully arranged, gold candelabras and lots of ornate plates and overlay linens to finish the look.
-Great Gatsby Glamour-
The 20′s era was a time when culture celebrated innovation in technological progress, art, music, fashion, dance, movies and theater. With the coming of the movie The Great Gatsby, along came the renewed excitement for the glitz and glamour of the 1920′s to fashion and weddings. To incorporate this theme, use the deco colors of that time which was cream, gold, silver, mint green, charcoal, gold and coral. Use your good taste and creative talent to incorporate the generous use of pearls and rhinestones.
‘Ombre’ is a French term for ‘shaded or graduated in tone. It is the effect you see when colors gradually fade into each other from dark colors into very light simple shades. It’s a perfect choice for couples who want to use a lot of different colors in their wedding in a sophisticated way with that added flair of uniqueness that will truly stand out to your guests. Ombre can be used everywhere from their gowns and accessories to using the color effect in flowers, decor and cakes.
Emerald is a lively hue just begging to be part of a vibrant wedding celebration. I think it’s a brilliant choice for a stunning color scheme. It embodies glamour, positivity, radiance, harmony and sophistication. From jaw-dropping emerald wedding dresses and shoes to wedding cakes and patterned napkins, it’s easy to incorporate this exciting color into the wedding day design and decor.
Birds continue to fly high in 2013 as they are often associated with romance and love. They have been added to decorations, invitations, cake toppers, and centerpieces from feathers, bird insignias, bird cages and more. These aviary accents add that touch of sweetness and personality to almost any wedding decor.
