Finding The Perfect Wedding Theme

Finding inspiration to create a wedding theme can be the hardest task or the simplest one. Having a wedding theme provides the couple a foundation to build the rest of their wedding around. Themed weddings are fun and exciting! Divulging in interests that are unique to the bride and groom and planning a wedding day around a specific theme typically leads to an unforgettable experience for everyone.

There are a variety of ways to decorate for a specific wedding theme. It is a great way to showcase the couple’s unique style with invitations, table centerpieces, wedding cake, décor, and more.


Motion Pictures Presents: Movie Themed Weddings

Centering your wedding on a theme based off a movie could be easy or hard. Some popular movies turned wedding inspiration would include: Harry Potter, Star Wars, Alice in Wonderland, and The Wizard of Oz. Determining how much detail you want to attribute to the theme is completely up to you and your partner.

Disney and Fairy Tale Weddings

It was bound to happen! Inspiration coming from the fairy tales you grew up on. The classic stories such as Cinderella or Beauty and The Beast provided many young girls, some boys, to dream of being in a fairy tale. When you get older you start to imagine what your wedding would look like and the feeling you want from that special day. Creating a fairy tale theme could create that whimsical feeling you dreamt of when you were younger.

Geek Chic Weddings

Everyone has a little geek within themselves. Finding inspiration from Sci-Fi, video game, or superheroes could make for a fun and creative wedding theme. Explore the geeky side of you and your partner’s personalities for a very special day. Go big with superhero capes and masks or go small with Ms. Pac Man cupcakes and arcade games. Whatever brings a smile to you and your partner’s face is all that matters. You want to create memories and have a great time. Playing with your inner childhood will spark creativity when developing your wedding theme.
