6 tips on wedding themes

De Vere Venues’ Wedding Co-ordinators give us their tips on what to think about if you’re going to theme your wedding

“A theme ties all the strands of your wedding together. The reception is the main focus – look at your venue first as it can offer you a great backdrop before you even start.” Marsha Stubbs, De Vere Venues Gorse Hill, Woking, Surrey

“Research wedding trends for ideas. Key trends over the past years have been colour themes and vintage themes represented through venue dressing and catering.” Anna Vine, De Vere Venues, Theobalds Park, Cheshunt, Herts

“Choose something that represents the two of you as a couple. Try not to get too carried away with one person’s ideas. Remember it is your day together!" Michelle Moore, De Vere Venues Devonport House, Greenwich, London

“Keep to one theme throughout the day – once you have decided on a theme for your wedding it is nice to keep it running through every aspect to keep everything tied together.” Samantha Keane, De Vere Venues Denham Grove, Uxbridge, Bucks

“Will you love a theme in years to come when you look back on your photos?” Zoe Jones, De Vere Venues Highfield Park, Near Hook, Hampshire

“Pick a theme that’s not too complicated – it can really add a special touch to your day without stressing you out.” Rachel Stead, De Vere Venues Warbrook House and Grange, near Hook, Hampshire

 

5 themes for your wedding

 

  1. Your favourite colour
  2. Vintage – rustic or Gatsby glamour
  3. Travel – places you’ve been to together
  4. A shared love – films, theatre, sport, the list is endless
  5. Flowers – got a favourite flower? Why not use that to theme the day from the bouquets to the colours
