Most Popular Wedding Themes

The best of modern trend in weddings decor is that couples go with a theme. It is no longer a simple affair, choosing a colour that you like and putting up flowers around the reception hall. Choosing a theme makes your ceremony exciting and fun. So here are some of the most popular themes this season that you could choose from, or simply go with any idea of your preference.


Vintage has been one of the most loved themes forever. There is always something magical and romantic about vintage cars, old books, suitcases, candles etc. An easy antique and candelabra hire could help you arrange all these vintage decorations. Lace should be a compulsory element in your dress. A beautiful long train with a dab of pearls would make an extremely elegant gown. You could also use old pictures of your family and display family heirlooms for a personal touch. For example, if your family has owned an iconic chandelier, you could base your entire theme on it and make it the centre of attention.

Pure romance

It’s all about the flowers, rose petals, candles and fairy lights. Your ceremony would look like a scene of a romantic movie, the perfect subtle pinks and purples, fairy light curtains and floating candles. You’d be dressed in a fitted chic dress and your groom and groomsmen in black tuxedos and your bridesmaids in pale pink gowns. A romance theme would fit well for a winter ceremony too.

Rustic chic

These showcase a beautiful natural landscape and plenty of woodwork pairing them up with more natural elements such as twigs, pinecones and flowers. For those of you nature lovers who love garden parties, vineyards or barns, this is a great choice. Using wine barrels for décor will greatly showcase country side. A wedding centrepiece hire would easily provide you with such barrels that could be the start element of the evening.

Seaside celebration

A sea themed ceremony would be more relaxed and fun than formal receptions. You could use seashells, pearls, a touch of light blue with white flowers etc. You and your bridal party can dress in flared and relaxing dresses while a linen shirt and pant would go for the groom and groomsmen. Base your food and beverages on seafood. Sea themed ceremonies are great for destination weddings where only your closest family and friends will join you to spend a weekend away with you. However, keep in mind that the sea breeze might come in your way with the décor so arrange for strong decorations.
