Things to keep in mind before choosing a wedding theme

Fortunately or unfortunately, there are no hard and fast rules when it comes to choosing wedding themes.

You can make anything your wedding theme–a song, a memory, a meaningful date, etc.

You can also stick to using one theme throughout or combining several wedding theme ideas, it’s up to you!

That said, there’s a reason why some wedding themes are better than others. Thus, before finalising your wedding theme, take note of the following:

Avoid references that are too far out

Don’t choose an obscure wedding theme. Remember, you are sharing the day with your friends and loved ones, so they should understand the look and feel you’re going for.

Give it a personal touch

The goal is to hear your guests commenting ‘this is so you’ to your wedding theme.


You’re only married once, so wouldn’t it be great if you could look back at your wedding day with satisfaction instead of thinking about the ‘what-ifs.’
