Delve a little deeper
When it comes to choosing a wedding theme that's unique and personal, just treading the water won't do you any good. You need to get into the details. If you want to have a vintage-themed wedding, for instance, decide on a specific period, like the 1920s or 1960s. If you like rustic decorations, which kind of rough are you talking about?

Consider the season
Don't forget about the season, especially if you're planning an outdoor wedding. You can't have a garden wedding in the winter, can you? Also, different seasons offer different atmospheres and natural colours. For example, if you've decided to have a fall wedding, autumnal colours such as orange or red will be especially suitable.
We are still obsessed with weddings that add a touch of Copper. It adds just a bit of shimmer, but not as bold as gold. Check out this lovely board of a deep blue with Copper Touches.

Therefore, many people argue that a beginner would have a much easier time with a multipurpose theme like this.

Look into your roots

The event's formality
The formality of your event will also help to determine the wedding theme. Let's go back to the dream wedding you had in mind earlier. What kind of celebration did you imagine? What will your guests wear? Will they come in suits and evening gowns or more relaxed outfits? If you've always dreamed of a formal black-tie occasion, a grand ballroom wedding is an obvious choice. If you want something more laid-back, opt for a garden party or beachside wedding.
Are you planning a fall-time wedding? What is your favourite part of the season you are embracing during your wedding?

Mind your budget
As always, be realistic and stick to your wedding budget. An indoor garden-themed wedding party might not be the best choice if you're on a budget, as filling a ballroom with flowers will be very costly. Instead, why not opt for an actual garden that doesn't need too many extra decorations?

Be true to yourself
There is no better wedding than one that reflects the couple's character, so you need to stay true to yourself when deciding on a wedding theme. Take some cues from nature-loving couple Sari and Frey, who had an eco-friendly wedding in the woods. Their wedding was enjoyable for every single one of their guests, and more importantly, it truly represented their personality.
The bride and groom who choose to embrace this colour will radiate with confidence. We especially love how the colour works so well with Fall's abundant natural hues - from apples to leaves. Plus, a classic red lip will never go out of style!
From napkins to florals, red is a natural colour to make the star of your wedding colour palette or a supporting colour player. Try pairing Aurora Red with gold and neutral browns for the perfect colour punch!
