Themed Weddings – Decorating The Venue 

When you have chosen the perfect location for your big day, is essential that you can make some of your own personal adjustments to the space to ensure it works for themed weddings. Whether this means investing in some related decor items online or crafting your own out of unique materials the personal touched really help to pull a theme together.

You can use seat covers that come in hundreds of different styles, an abundance of floral arrangements using whichever species are your favourites, light fittings that suit your theme and so much more. Take some time to search online for inspiration, as there are a wealth of blog posts and mood boards that can help you to make a decision. 

Choosing The Right Outfits For Themed Weddings

One of the best ways that you can represent your wedding day theme is through the outfits that you and your guests wear. Themed weddings mean you can suggest or set a dress code that asks attendees to wear specific clothes without being a bride or groomzilla. When it comes to things like bridesmaids dresses, you can find more colours and designs than you might have ever imagined, so take this opportunity to style them in a way which encourages your theme. Your outfit also matters as the bride or groom, and though you may want to stick with more traditional style choices you can still add a few accessories such as jewellery and outerwear that can channel your theme. 

Themed Weddings Can Be a Lot Of Fun

At the end of the day try to remember why you are choosing a themed wedding. The chances are the theme is something that means something to you and your partner. Whether that’s a location theme or you want a Dungeons and Dragon’s theme, you know what you want. You just need to find fun and creative ways to incorporate it. 

The Our Song Meme

I knew exactly what song I was going to choose when Liz Jarvis tagged me in this musical meme.

When we got married (didn’t we look ridiculously young!), Roy sang this song to me at the wedding reception. Roy is a fantastic singer and guitar player and I’ve always loved to listen to him but it had never occurred to me that he’d choose to sing in front of both of our families on our special day.

Thank goodness for waterproof mascara!

A bit corny? No, I’ve always loved the song and besides, I’m not sure Karma Chameleon which was our Saturday night out karaoke tune of choice at the time, would have had the same impact.

This is definitely a special song for us! Do you have one? I’d love to hear from Nickie (who has such great taste in music!),  the lovely Lisa, gorgeous Claire, and Susan (because I think she’ll kick this meme’s ass).

Does anyone else have a “our song” they want to share?
