After getting hiring a wedding planner, the next thing is to pick a suitable wedding venue. If you’ve already chosen a venue, take a look at its surroundings and use it as a springboard for inspiration. Pay attention to its features and ambiance, also consider what colors will suit it.  Whether you plan on having a garden wedding or a beach wedding, this is the first step in choosing the perfect wedding theme. That is because each wedding venue has its vibe. For instance, you are not going to have a country or beach themed wedding in a grand wedding hall.

 

Wedding Season

After making a decision on ‘Where your wedding would take place’  it’s time to conclude on  ‘When your wedding would take place’. Are you having a summer, autumn, winter, or spring wedding? It is important you put this into consideration especially if you are planning an outdoor wedding. Apart from the fact that different seasons offer different atmospheres, it also sets the theme and colour for your wedding. For example, if you are having a winter wedding, typically, your theme would include darker and warmer colours – blue, emerald green, white, are ideal wedding colour palettes for a winter wedding. A winter wedding can as well be a theme itself. 

Due to the present pandemic, your wedding is likely to fall on a different season. Your spring wedding might be forced into the autumn and winter. That’s why you should ask your wedding planner and decorator these questions. 

 

Colour

Picking a wedding theme colour plays a vital role in choosing an overall wedding theme. As mentioned earlier, your wedding season has a part to play in selecting a colour palette. However, your wedding season shouldn’t be the only factor to consider; what about what you want? Your wedding should reflect you and your partner’s personality.  Identify your favourite colours and if you don’t have one, go through your wardrobe and note the colour you wear the most. Different colours are used for different styles of wedding. For instance, if your options are dusty pink and sage green, then you are leaning towards a rustic wedding. For a luxe wedding, colours such as gold and black are perfect.

When deciding on a wedding theme, you need to stay true to yourself and choose what feels right. Your wedding theme would be a reflection of you and your partner’s personalities. That’s why you should pick a wedding theme based on your taste and preference, and not what’s trending. The best trend is doing what makes you and your partner happy. Take a cue from Joia and Giovanni modern-day fairytale wedding, their wedding was everything they ever dreamt of and more. Are you and your partner quite laid back?
