Timeless Wedding Inspiration


One of the most exciting parts of planning a wedding is deciding on your inspiration. This is what decides what you’ll wear, how the venue will be decorated, and all the little details that will make your day special. Having a solid inspiration makes it easier for you to narrow down some of the bigger decisions of your wedding day. To make deciding on a wedding theme easier for you, we have come up with four timeless wedding themes to draw inspiration from.




One of the most popular wedding inspirations of late 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. If you love Bridgerton and tea parties, this one may be for you.


Picture this: You’re walking down a nontraditional aisle lined with oriental rugs, all leading to the love of your life under a macramé altar. If this sounds like your dream wedding, a bohemian style might be for you. Bohemian-inspiration weddings have gained popularity in recent years. However, they are still very unique. We believe that this is because they tend to combine coziness with being carefree, and there are a lot of interpretations. Although new, we don’t see this eclectic wedding inspiration leaving us soon.


Thinking of a beach wedding but don’t want to travel? How about a tropical wedding! The best part about tropical weddings is that you don’t 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 a destination wedding is what you want without breaking the bank, bringing a tropical inspiration to the Twin Cities might be for you!


Last but CERTAINLY not least, rustic inspiration has taken the Twin Cities by storm. Rustic themes are gorgeous at Minnesota’s many barn venues. Some details that are usually associated with rustic are: lace, burlap, mason jars, and reclaimed wood. Chances are you’ve been to a wedding with this inspiration – you may have taken home a little jar of jam or sat at a picnic table decorated with babies breath. Rustic combines with charms of vintage with the whimsy of bohemian. Also – it is VERY Minnesota.

Whatever wedding inspiration you decide on, your day is bound to be amazing. We suggest to close your eyes and imagine your day. Are you inside or outside? Is it bright or moody? Asking yourself these questions will usually lead you in the right direction!

Completely lost or know your plan to a T? Either way, you will want to work with an experienced Twin Cities vendor who will help you implement your inspiration!
