Popular Wedding Themes
Let’s look at some of the most popular wedding themes for today’s soon-to-wed couples before diving into all the options available, whether you’re classic or innovative, glam or retro, alternative or boho-inspired:
Formal modern, first: With this elegant wedding theme that incorporates contemporary design elements, stick to the fundamentals.
Tall centrepieces, crystal chandeliers, and draped textiles will complete this elegant appearance.
Classic glam: A classic glam celebration is brilliant and extravagant, with opulent touches throughout, including the location and décor.
Metallics are frequently added to monochromatic colour schemes to give sparkle and elegance.
Natural: To celebrate the splendour of nature throughout your wedding day, think about having it in an outdoor courtyard.
Eco-friendly wedding accents like edible favours and a sustainable exit help give your natural wedding atmosphere some sustenance.
Conventional Wedding Themes
You probably go towards conventional, classic wedding themes if you’re a traditional, classic person.
Yet “classic” and “traditional” don’t necessarily mean “boring”!
There are many wedding themes that will offer you the traditional appearance and feel you desire while still feeling thrilling and one-of-a-kind, including:
Winter wonderland: A winter wonderland theme can make your winter wedding reception sparkle like snow.
To create this enchanting look, use seasonal decorations, snowflakes, and glitter.
Autumn foliage: Think burgundy, gold, and forest green when choosing colours for your wedding.
Modern Classic Wedding Themes
Modern minimalism: Focus on the happy couple rather than excessive decoration to cut down on distractions.
With this straightforward theme, less is more as it employs forms, geometry, and little bursts of colour to come to life.
Mid-century modern: Incorporate this retro (but still modern) design style in your wedding decor with retro tablescapes and burnt orange furnishings.
Enjoy Art Deco with gold decorations, glistening sequins, feathers, and plenty of bubbly. Art Deco is a style that never goes out of style.
For a chic art deco style, use a wedding colour palette of white, gold, and black.

Traditional Rustic Wedding Ideas
Rustic: Play up natural features or homey decor for a rustic theme, which is popular for outdoor weddings (like plenty of greenery and mason jar floral arrangements).
Country: Have a ranch-style wedding with cowboy boots and country music.
If your venue permits it, you can even include ranch activities like hayrides and horseback riding.

Consider using an earthy colour scheme and fruit and vegetable-centered centrepieces.
