One of the most exciting parts of planning a wedding is deciding on your theme. This is what decides what you’ll wear, how the venue will be decorated, and even what kind of food you will have. Having a theme makes it easier for you to narrow down some of the bigger decisions of your wedding day. To make deciding on a wedding theme a little easier for you, we have come up with four timeless wedding themes to draw inspiration from.
Here in the South, and especially in Texas, a rustic-themed wedding is very popular! Many venues here in Houston, Texas, are in barns or on farmland and have many rustic features already incorporated. Farm animals like cows, goats, or horses can really set the tone and provide photo ops or entertainment for your guests. We have even seen fun ideas such as shot donkeys that can can “serve” drinks to your guests during a cocktail hour! Popular decor includes wooden or farm-style furniture and wall pieces and textures that include burlap or other similar fabrics.
One of the most popular wedding themes is vintage. This is a classic choice because of its timeless aspects. From suspenders and bowties to old Hollywood hair and glam makeup. You can even add to this theme by picking decoration pieces that are a little weathered to give them that vintage look. These elements all come together for moments that will never go out of style.
Picture this: You’re walking down a nontraditional aisle lined with oriental rugs, all leading to the love of your life under a macrame altar. If this sounds like your dream wedding, a bohemian style might be for you. Bohemian-themed weddings have gained popularity in recent years. We believe that this is because they tend to combine coziness with being carefree. Although new, we don’t see this wedding theme leaving our minds in the near future.
Thinking of a beach wedding? We’ll do you one better. How about a tropical wedding? The best part about tropical weddings is that you don’t necessarily need to be on a beach to enjoy the aesthetics they have to bring. From bright color palettes to tropical-themed cocktails (hello pina coladas anyone!?). These will surely bring excitement to your day.
If you’re fortunate enough to live near a beach or are able to book a destination wedding, go all out! Galveston is not too far y’all! Get guests excited by having them dress in saturated hues or bold floral prints. You can even have a menu based on local fresh fish. Below are some of our favorite Houston caterers that can help you create your customized menu!
