Picking out wedding themes can be one of the hardest planning pieces that every couple is faced with. Do you want to go the romantic route, or keep things fresh and modern? Once you pinpoint the theme of your dreams, you can officially move forward with the rest of your wedding plans. But, if you're still on the fence about which direction you want to go, we rounded up the best wedding themes for any style and venue, no matter how unique. Use this as a comparative guide to finally cross this major decision off your planning checklist and set the tone for your big day.

 

1. Romantic

Soft hues, delicate lighting, and plenty of florals typically make up a romantic wedding. For this theme, envision pastels, hanging lights (even chandeliers), calligraphy, and a flower wall.

 

2. Alternative

More of an offbeat couple who's never been one to take the normal route? We get you. Buck tradition with an alternative wedding theme, and roll with it however you see fit. If cool, moody color palettes and creative stand-ins match your style better than bright floral and been-there-done-that wedding décor, then an alternative theme has your name written all over it. Push the boundaries as much as you want.

 

3. Vintage

Draw inspiration from decades past if you want a vintage style for your wedding. One of the easiest ways to channel this is through your wedding outfit and beauty look. As for the ceremony and reception, you can rely on antique-looking décor, like weathered doors and worn-in wood seats, to further exemplify a vintage-inspired wedding. For your last hoorah, finish off the vintage theme by driving away in a classic getaway car, like an old Porsche or Volkswagen.

 

4. Whimsical

For the whimsical couple, your wedding will be one full of bright splashes of color and quirky, bohemian components. Incorporate design elements like multicolored balloons, streamers, punchy floral arrangements, and mismatched chairs.

 

5. Modern

For a modern wedding, think clean lines, geometric shapes, and minimal design. A modern theme knows few bounds, so channel it however you see fit. Put a modern spin on anything, from your wedding dress (take a break from white) to your venue decorations, like sleek seats, a cool structural backdrop, or a bold color scheme. We also asked top wedding planners for their trend predictions, so stay up to date with their ideas, like greenery and cream balloons.

 

6. Rustic

String lights, mason jars, twine, lace, and all wood everything contributes to the simple and homey vibe of this theme. If you're a huge DIY fan, rustic wedding décor will be your cup of tea. Consider a more rural venue, like a chic and intimate barn, if this is your dream wedding style.

 

7. Garden Party/Casual

If you envision a more intimate, casual ceremony, opt for an outdoor-garden-party-themed wedding. This laid-back style is perfect if you have a backyard wedding on the brain and a spring or summer date.

 

8. Bohemian

Calling all boho brides if this matches your own personal style, then say "I do" to the corresponding wedding theme. Just like how your wedding dress will most likely look, a bohemian wedding remains cool and carefree, but still beautiful. Keep your venue decorations simplistically elegant, with oriental rugs lining the aisle and altar, and decorative pillows or hanging macramé decorations. Take a note from actress Troian Bellisario's wedding, which is the stuff of boho dreams.

 

9. Southern Inspired

Can't resist the charm of the South? Whether you're a born-and-raised Southerner or just want to tie the knot at a venue below the Mason-Dixon Line, ensure that your theme aligns with your locale by adding hints of Southern charm. Treat guests to bites of comfort food and bourbon-infused cocktails, show off your monogram, or walk down the aisle in your favorite pair of cowboy boots, if you're so inclined. Decorate with pops of color in pastel hues and rich blues (i.e. your groom's bow tie) to channel more components of the South and don't forget about hospitality.

 

10. Formal/Traditional

Considering a black tie wedding? If you envision you and your guests dressing to the nines, your overall theme will have to match accordingly. For nuptials this grandiose, you'll want to pull out all the stops and include complete table settings (wine glasses and all) with a full sit-down dinner, posh seating, ornate flower arrangements (even on the cake), and an exquisite head table, just to name a few formalities.

 

11. Art Deco

This timeless style features Great Gatsby-era lavishness, including robust fonts, ornate gold and sparkles, and plenty of geometric shapes with sharp lines (similar to the modern theme). If you're all about tasteful glitz and jazz age glam with an ode to vintage allure, then this theme's for you.

 

12. Nautical

Whether you're tying the knot at your childhood lake house or are planning a destination wedding, a nautical theme perfectly complements a seaside ceremony. Make waves with blue and white tones (especially stripes) paired with beach motifs like shells, anchors, ropes, and sailboats to exude a maritime style.

 

13. Eco-Friendly/Natural

Just because you want to be mindful of the environment (as we all should be) at your wedding, doesn't mean you have to skimp out on the little things. You can use biodegradable confetti as an alternative to rice for your grand exit, plants instead of flowers as table décor, and invitations printed on recycled paper. If the weather allows, choose an outdoor venue to cut back on energy from lighting.

 

14. Celestial

Your love was written in the stars, so translate that mentality into your wedding theme. Kick off the festivities with star-infused wedding invites, and use your venue to create the ambience of a night sky. Even your dress can channel the ultimate celestial vibes. The sky's the limit (literally) with this theme, so get creative with a galaxy-inspired constellation guest book, cake, and ceremony backdrop.

 

15. Music

March to the beat of your own drum at your wedding if music makes you and your future spouse's world go round. Whether you're members of the music industry or just love a good tune from any genre, incorporate your passion through instrument motif decorations, a vintage mic stand, and plenty of your favorite songs interspersed throughout the ceremony and reception. And, this should be a given, but enlist the help of your favorite local band to keep the rhythm alive.

 

16. Tropical

You don't need a beach locale to pull off a beautiful tropical-inspired wedding one couple even incorporated a tropical vibe into their New York City nuptials. You just need plenty of plants (like palm fronds and neon florals), laid-back décor, and a signature beachy cocktail.

 

17. Preppy

Bright pinks, greens, and navy blues are the name of the preppy game, which can also go hand in hand with nautical or Southern weddings. A preppy theme allows you to blend formality with fun through bold patterns, tasteful bows, dainty fonts, and cheery flowers. Channel your inner Kate Spade or Lilly Pulitzer (pearl earrings and all) if this theme is up your alley.

 

18. Christmas/Holiday

Take your winter wedding to the next level with holiday-infused motifs. From Christmas tree décor and ornament escort cards to warm winter cocktails, the Christmas wedding options are endless. Hope for a little snow the day of, request "All I Want for Christmas Is You" from your DJ, gift candy canes or Santa hats as favors, and you're all set.

 

19. Animals

It's hard not to be an animal lover, and it also makes for a creative wedding theme that hasn't been overdone. If you have your own pet, incorporate it into the wedding (puppy ring bearer, perhaps?) and rely on more wild creature motifs to liven up your table settings and invitations. Take it one step further and make your grand entrance atop a horse, or hop on the llama wedding trend (yes, this is a real thing).

20. Travel

If you're a jet-setting duo or have friends venturing from near and far for your wedding, incorporate a creative travel theme that guests will also love just as much. This couple wanted to honor their heritages (he's from Montreal, she's from Norway) and their array of international guests in their California nuptials. They featured a sign detailing how far their friends and family had traveled, and a freestanding white wall decorated with assorted globes that read "Where to Next?" They also transformed luggage tags into escort cards and used postcards as a guest book.

How to Choose an MC for Your Wedding

Share

article by Babatunde Kujore in

Once you’ve booked a date for your wedding, you’ll need to choose an MC or master of ceremonies. While you’ll both remain the most important people of the day, they’ll also play a vital role in keeping the day running smoothly. Some of their jobs include organizing guests for photos and helping guests find their allocated seats, plus managing the speeches!     1.

Once you’ve booked a date for your wedding, you’ll need to choose an MC or master of ceremonies. While you’ll both remain the most important people of the day, they’ll also play a vital role in keeping the day running smoothly. Some of their jobs include organizing guests for photos and helping guests find their allocated seats, plus managing the speeches!

 

 

1. Look for Confidence – you need a person who is confident speaking to large crowds using a microphone. The trick is to choose an MC who has a strong presence but will not outshine the bride and groom.

 

 

2. Someone You Both Like & Respect – you’re both trusting this person with parts of your wedding day, so you need to like them as a person. As a go-between with suppliers, guests and even staff, they need to be able to follow your directions to the letter. Trusting that they will do this is key for you to have a relaxing and stress-free day.

 

 

3. Humorous – a great sense of humor is important in a master of ceremonies. They need to be able to make guests feel comfortable, break the ice and are someone people enjoy listening to. Be sure to let them know your boundaries when it comes to making jokes though, especially crude ones!

 

 

4. Organised – if they can make a list and stick to it, there’s a good chance they’ll be fine. An organized MC will keep your wedding day on track, ensuring things happen just the way you wanted.

 

 

5. Great Communicator – being able to chat with you both and understand what you both want is vital in an MC. On the day (or even before), they’ll talk with the photographer, guests and the caterer. They’ll need to make quick decisions, follow directions and give instructions too.

Consider the benefits and risks to your business when deciding to exhibit your product or service. These will be different for each event; however, there can be a lot to gain from promoting your product in person within a different environment.

 

 

Benefits

Trade shows are generally targeted at an industry and people involved or interested in that industry. Exhibiting at a trade show can be a great way to advertise to a target market and create brand awareness.

 

Exhibitions are open to a large and sometimes diverse range of audiences (usually the general public). This provides you with a platform to promote your product or service to a broader group that may have little or no knowledge of your products and services.

 

Depending on your type of business, product and market testing can be carried out at trade shows and exhibitions to gain industry or general opinion about your offering.

 

Being involved in a trade show or exhibition can provide you with opportunities to branch out to business-to-business trading and create a customer database from the visitors to your display booth.

 

 

Risks

It is also important to ensure that you have thoroughly researched attending a trade show or exhibition, and if you have a business adviser, discuss it with them.

 

There are risks involved and you need to be aware of those risks in the planning stages, including:

Choosing the wrong trade show to exhibit your business's products or services can result in displaying to the wrong audience. Poor promotion can mean the costs of attending the trade show outweigh any revenue you gain.

 

 

Deciding to attend

You might find attending trade shows is worthwhile if you have:

How to Organize an Art Show and Sale

I had a dream, just a few short months ago; I uttered a statement to Master Alicea, at Alicea's Martial Arts School, about my desire to do an art exhibit/sale. What he said next set the plans in motions for all the planning and execution of my recent art show.

 

Within a few days I had picked a date. A few days after that I came up with a name for the event, with a little help. The poster for the event was designed by another dear friend, paid for, and then it was finally posted in my art page. Upon posting, several other people came forward with a desire to help out in some way to the success of the show.

 

 I thought a lot about the movie called Field of Dreams that I watched several years ago. There were days that I wondered if I could physically get enough work ready for this event. It has been quite a journey over the last year, with illness and other setbacks, but I set out on a course to accomplish a goal.

 

Here are some tips that I can pass on to you that I have learned from the experience. How, Where, When: What All Is Involved? How Do You Reach the Public?

 

When you are an artist, there are always art shows to either put on, participate in, or attend. They are part of surviving as a professional artist. Doing art shows is a part of the artists commitment to their art. The artwork has to reach the public.

 

But the how, what, where, when. What all is involved tends to escape our abilities as artists. After all, we just want to produce our work, right? We don't really want the task of getting the work out there in front of our audience. Well, who else is going to do it for us....if not us?

 

 True, you could hire some technology guy behind a website to, but that takes a lot of money and as artists, we may not necessarily have that kind of dough. Well, maybe you do. I didn't.

 

In this hub, I will try to touch on various things to consider when you want to run your own art show and sale. You will probably have ideas of your own also. It can be done.

 

 

Remember, Remember the Date of the Event

The first thing to do is to establish the dates, allowing time to have some promotion materials printed. Trying to create or organize an art show can be very difficult if you don't know what you're doing. It was a challenge for me. However, I had a lot of help and by following these tips and steps, you'll be putting on an art show in no time!

 

If you take the time to prepare up front your show will come across as slick, well organised and professional, which in turn gives potential buyers of your art confidence.

 

 

Venue: The "Where?"

Event centers are great places to have art shows. Try talking to the owners. If they don't have art on their walls, try introducing them to the idea. Not only will it make them look good (by supporting local art), you will have a place to exhibit your art.

 

Try any place:

 

 

Name of Exhibit

It took me a while to come up with the perfect name, but with some help I managed to find the right one.

 

Choosing a good title for your art is important. It says something about what the drawing or painting means to you as an artist and gives the viewer some clues about approaching the piece. The same can be said about the exhibit as a whole.

 

 

Write up a budget for your art show.

Include in your budget: artists’ fees, project fees, overhead, advertising, printing catalog and invitations, shipping and handling, customs duty, framing, installing, lighting and opening expenses.

 

 

 

Getting your Artwork Ready for the Show

 

 

Guide to Items for Display and Possible Uses

 

 

Press Releases and Announcements

 

 

Announcement Contents Checklist

 

 

Sponsorships

 

 

Food and Entertainment

Music is a good way to add some ambiance to the event. The easiest way is to play music in the background. You can also invite some musicians to play live music, but it’s best that they are acoustic. You want the music to compliment your event, not overshadow it. Also, remember to feed and water your musicians to keep them happy.

 

 

Sales Tips

 

 

Things Not to Do

 

 

Hanging the exhibit

 

 

During the Run of the Show

 

 

Recording the Event

 

 

After the Show

After the exhibition comes the pulling down. Be careful with this process, so you don’t damage the works. This is especially pertinent if you are handling a sold work. Clean and vacuum the gallery and return the keys to the owners once you are done.

 

Send thank you notes to everyone who volunteered.

 

Celebrate!
