When it comes to wedding planning, couples are no longer limited by the parameters of tradition. In recent years, themed weddings have become increasingly popular, with couples able to tailor their big day to convey their personalities and passions and make their wedding truly remarkable.
The wedding party’s clothes, wedding favours and table and room decorations can all be used to develop a theme. For example, for a Moroccan-themed wedding, swathes of fabric in vibrant tones, oversized scatter cushions and latticework metal lanterns will all help to set the scene. A vintage-style may involve heavy white lace table cloths, old tin tea caddies or oil lamps – remove as unable to have flames as centrepieces for the tables and sugared almonds in muslin for favours.
You could also incorporate your theme into your guest entertainment, with a retro band playing or traditional outdoor games like croquet, draughts or chess.
To accommodate your theme you will need to find a dream wedding venue for your big day – one that can cater for all your aspirations.
