10 Alternate Wedding Themes To Make You Go WOW

By  | 

Weddings are a great time to express your creativity and personal style. The internet is a great resource to search for images for all kinds of themes, but with so many to choose from, it can be overwhelming. To make things easier, we have listed 10 of our favourite themes that are innovative, breath-taking, and absolutely perfect for the modern couple.

1. Like A Painting – The Lighthouse

Give your wedding the Van Gogh touch with a lighthouse theme. Think of a mysterious and beautiful sea, with a fresh sea breeze, sunset backdrop, and a beautiful landscape. Decorate with sea shells and blue tones.

2. Childhood Memories

Have a nostalgic wedding by recreating the happiest time of your life. Use childhood photos as table centre pieces, have a sweet table with your favourite childhood treats, and play music that you loved listening to when growing up. You could even incorporate some favourite childhood games into your wedding so the little guests have something to keep themselves entertained with – think Connect-4, Guess Who and Operation.

3. Movies and TV Shows

Do you or your partner have an absolutely favourite movie or TV show? Do you both love Harry Potter? Superhero movies? The Walking dead? Bring a sense of adventure to your wedding by incorporating your favourite movie or TV show into the theme of your big day.

4. Greenhouse

While most weddings have some flowers in the form of bouquets, buttonholes and centre pieces, you could go all with an extravagantly floral theme. Create a whimsical soothing and refreshing atmosphere by including multiple types of greenery and floral arrangements in your decor. Be warned though, it isn’t the best idea if any of your guests suffer from hay fever.

5. Bring Fantasies to Life

Add an element of the surreal to your wedding by including visually stunning fantasy elements. Think fairies, unicorns, dragons and wizards, for a wedding that’s truly out of this world.

6. Shine Like A Star

Do you believe that your love story was written in the stars? If you do, why don’t you transfer it to your wedding? Have a celestial-themed wedding and incorporate stunning star and space related decor. From star-studded wedding invitations to a night-sky podium, the sky is the limit.

7. Go Tropical

Tropical doesn’t necessarily mean beach-themed, but you could bring them both together if you like. Go for palm trees, exotic flowers, and fruity cocktails.

8. Sports Fantastic

If you or your partner are a sports fanatic, you could incorporate this passion into your wedding day. From rugby and football to figure skating and tennis, there are ways to include your favourite sport in your big day. Think of including your favourite team’s colours, have sports-related decor or table names, and if you are having entertainment such as a photo booth include sports-related props for guests.

9. Vintage Style

You can never go wrong with vintage decor at a wedding. Think of a classic bouquet, a dress with breathtaking lace, vintage cars, music from the 50’s, a vintage themed bar – sounds great, doesn’t it?

10. Rock n Roll

A rock n roll themed wedding will be fun for you and all of your guests. You could go for a hill-billy style shorter dress and accessorise with red heels and lipstick, include leather jackets as part of the outfits, go all out rock n roll with the decor, and the music options are endless!
