Themed weddings awaken our imagination. It’s like playing dress up except all of the tears, smiles and laugher are real!
Each year, we feverishly track wedding theme trends, and are always excited about the latest and greatest ideas that couples craft up. Since we’ve started our journey in the wedding planning business, we’ve noticed that with each new year, wedding themes become more and more popular, almost like a “must-have”. And why not? It’s a chance for the bride and groom to turn their event into something that is both meaningful to them, and enjoyable for their guests. Not to mention, with the overwhelming amount of inspiration on Pinterest, honing in on a specific “vibe” will make the process of pulling together your flowers, invitations, color palette, menu, music and more, so much simpler.
Now, the key to successfully personalizing your “I do’s” is to bring in something that will remind people of you – whether that’s a special song, a color you love to wear or even just a feeling. However, we can’t stress enough that you don’t need to feel pressured to pick a motif out of nowhere, just for the sake of throwing an unbelievable party. Incorporate your wedding theme in very simple and understated ways.
We recently had the pleasure of working with two White Box brides who’s wedding themes were too adorable not to share.
Julie and Ethan’s Woodland Craft Beer Vibe
Saying your “I do’s” with some brews? We can get down with this! Julie and Ethan’s vision for their big day was all about tying together their love of nature and beer. (And the love of beer is precisely the kind of love that should be honored!)
Empty craft beer bottles and growlers filled with lush greenery and pastel florals set the tone early as table centerpieces, followed by a day complete with a DIY olive bar, craft beer “flight” samples, wooden walls decorated with tea lights and draping leaves and a menu oozing of Southern goodness (Think: Chicken & Waffles, Shrimp & Grits, Pumpkin Tartlets and Slow Cooked Pulled Pork). As their wedding will be held on a brisk fall night, we suggested a “Snuggle Station” with flannel blankets to really encompass an intimate setting, ending the night with a make-your-own S’mores package. These subtle additions of both beer and woodland vibes will be sure to get their guests in the spirit!
Beer-loving couples, we’re sure you can gain some inspiration from this unique wedding theme. Check out the rental ideas and inspiration photos we shared for Julie and Ethan below:
Morgan and Ryan’s White Minimalistic with a Pop of Pink
There are some brides that love muted tones and soft pastels, while others crave those bursts of vibrancy incorporated into their day. Morgan and Ryan follow the latter, opting for an up-and-coming popular color palette of white, gold and greens, with a pop of bold pink. Teamed against a simple white wedding cake or pure white wedding dress, pink flowers add a fresh, romantic and feminine contrast into the day.
We suggested the men dress in classic black tuxes, while the ladies strut down in neutral sage gowns. Long vines of greenery with bright pink flowers will be the focal point of the dining tables, while the reception space itself will be bright, crisp and open. Their menu will include mouth-watering favorites such as heirloom tomato and goat cheese tart, fried oyster on lemon slices, pecan crusted chicken and truffle devil eggs. End the night with a coffee and ice cream bar, and of course sparklers to wish the happy couple farewell!
