Collaborative Post – This post is a guest post which means I have received a small commission for sharing this article. Although I did not write the majority of this content, it is something that fits in with the niche of this blog and I have added my own twist to it.
Does anyone have a wedding coming up? I keep hearing about weddings happening from people I used to know and it got me thinking. I wouldn’t want a traditional wedding; something that will be like every other wedding that happens. I’d want to do something awesome. It wouldn’t have to be something big, but I would definitely be thinking about unique wedding themes to be a little bit different.
Your wedding is supposed to be the most memorable day of your life! To make it even more memorable (for all the right reasons), get your guests talking by organising a wedding theme that is a little off-beat, or so totally traditional that it is unusual – such as a Victorian theme. The quirkier the better! If your wedding is well executed it could even rival that of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry in May this year. You never know you could have Hello magazine knocking on your door!
If you are going to go for a specific theme for your wedding, it will be important to get every aspect “just right”. To set the scene ensure that your wedding invitations are bespoke such as those created by Pure Invitation wedding invites. Your guests will want to know what to wear if your theme is a little “off the wall”.
Here are some wedding themes for you to consider:
Having a beach wedding throws up many ideas for themes. Firstly you will need to decide which beach! Will your beach be somewhere hot and sunny, or is there a beach close to where you live? Consider your guests if you are travelling far afield. Close family will most likely want to be with you, whereas friends may struggle to get the time off.
Clothing for a beach wedding can be as formal or casual as you like, you may even be able to get married in your bikini, but check local laws and customs first. Whatever the dress, your shoes should definitely be casual or consider going barefoot with attractive foot jewellry – you will want to feel the sand between your toes.
The decor for a beach wedding depends on where the beach is. A tropical paradise lends itself to flowers and plants from the topics, bright colours and shells from faraway seas. If your wedding is taking place in a more traditional seaside resort deckchairs, stripy bunting, candyfloss and nautical accessories would look fab. You could even provide buckets and spades! For wedding favours you could give each guest a message in a bottle, for a quirky keepsake. How cool would that be?
A vintage styled wedding never goes out of fashion, people love the romance of a bygone era. You could simply opt for a few vintage touches such as sourcing a vintage wedding dress, or you could go the whole hog and create your wedding as if out of a scene on Downton Abbey!
Decide on which era your wedding is trying to re-enact and research what would have been traditionally done at the time. A victorian wedding would always include flower wreaths worn in the hair. Poetry and rhymes were extremely important, you could consider writing your own – what could be more romantic!
“Roll up, roll up. It’s all the fun of the fair”!
If you love fairgrounds why not incorporate the theme of the fun fair into your wedding day? Your wedding will certainly be memorable and think of the photo opportunities!
Your main consideration will be your wedding venue, it’s unlikely that you will find an up and running fun fair that will host weddings, although not impossible. A better option would be to hire fairground attractions for your venue. Be realistic about space, you will need a large amount of space if you want to include large attractions such as a ferris wheel and carousel.
Don’t forget to include the ever popular “hook a duck” and provide traditional fairground food such as popcorn, hotdogs and candy floss. Have fun! I would actually seriously consider doing this if I ever married. This is by far one of the most exciting and unique wedding themes that I can think of!!
Medieval – Game Of Thrones
The popular series, Game Of Thrones is a fantasy epic, situated in the wilds of Ireland and Scotland. You can really let your imagination run wild with this theme, as there are really no limits. Good venues would be large wooded areas, lofty barns and great halls. Ensure all touches of “the modern” world are hidden as your aim is to create a bygone era.

Clothing can be as dramatic and wild as you like. Decor should be sumptuous faux furs and silks combined with the rusticness of the surroundings.
Floral bouquets should be wild and dramatic with a combination of flowers and foliage that would be traditionally found in such surroundings. Roses and Ivy would be a good bet.
This is just a small snapshot of the many wedding themes you could consider. You could choose whatever theme you like. With a bit of research and planning your wedding will be remembered for years to come!
Let your individual style shine through! This is YOUR big day!!
