Picking a wedding theme can be extremely difficult, but, if you can narrow the options down, negotiations with your fiancé on what would be the perfect theme. There are several things to consider when picking the perfect theme for your wedding and each should be considered carefully between you and your fiancé. Finding something that inspires both of you to the right theme can be just what your wedding needs to run smoothly and be perfect for you.
Consider how you met
Do you have a really cute how you met story? Or maybe a particularly memorable first date? The memory of these events can serve as the perfect inspiration for your wedding theme. Not only is it sweet and romantic, but also it is very personal and your guests will love feeling like they were in on your first date or the night you met. Depending on how in-depth you want to go with your decorations, this could also make for a really cheap wedding theme option.
Consider what you love to do together
The best way to start on the right foot with compromising on a theme is to start with what you have in common. Think about what you love doing together, common hobbies, etc. and try to incorporate this common ground. Do you both love hunting? Have a camo-themed outdoor wedding. Do you both love to read? Maybe do a book-themed wedding at a library. Are you both really into cars? Maybe do a car-themed wedding. The absolute best way to assure you’ll agree is by picking something you both love to begin with.
Classic themes and color schemes are timeless
It’s hard to go wrong with a classic. If you two are having trouble agreeing or deciding on colors or a theme, consider just going with a classic. There’s a myriad of ways to personalize these and they are a failsafe crowd-pleaser. Classics are considered classics for a reason; why fix it if it isn’t broken? Plus, it’s easier to find decorations or how-tos based on the popularity of theme. Because they’re still so widely popular, decorations and favors are pretty easy to come by, making them cheaper, too.
There are lots of things to consider when choosing a wedding thing but the two most important things to keep in mind are 1) yours and your fiancé’s wishes and 2) your budget. Beyond that, this list gives you a good overview of ways to narrow down the many options floating around out there to find out what’s best for you. Once you have chosen a theme, you can find many different ways to personalize it and make it unique on any budget.
