A wedding theme can be as simple as a colour scheme to something as elaborate as the place you met or where the proposal happened. But most of all, a theme for a wedding needs to mean something to the bride & groom and be a part of them and their relationship. A theme helps a great deal in all aspects of a wedding and its planning. Here’s some way a theme can make your life easier:

Invites – Invitation cards are usually the birth place of any theme. The invites set the tone of the wedding. Be careful not to choose colours that are difficult to replicate in flowers or fabric as they will be key in your in various aspect of your wedding.

Decor - You have something to fall back on when you are in doubt about décor. Something as simple as a colour palette can help you build your décor as opposed to not knowing where to start from. Remember, shades of a particular colour are still within theme. Do not stress out if you cannot find an exact match.

Flowers – The flowers you use during a wedding can reflect the theme in terms of colours & feel. In nature we find all sorts of colours in a variety of shades. Once you have a theme in mind, finding similar coloured flowers to match is easier. Some flowers are seasonal so keep that in mind while choosing a theme or color palette.

Food – An elaborate theme can also help set the menu at your wedding. For example, if your theme is ‘Royalty’ then your food can have dishes made for the royals of a particular era/place. Or if your theme is Moroccan then your food would rely on a lot of kababs, shawarmas, etc…

Wrap me up – Gifts, welcome baskets, wedding stationery all can have the theme running through them and hence tying the whole wedding together in terms of aesthetics.

Bridesmaids/Groomsmen – Yes, a lot of couples tend to have bridesmaids & groomsmen during their wedding now. And to identify them, they are given outfits in a particular colour (or a combination) which is usually derived from the overall theme of the wedding. 

A theme really helps put things in perspective. But a theme can be overdone and that is something that should avoided as it looks like you are trying too hard. A theme needs to flow and be simple.
