THE THEME IDEAS.
The Theme Dream: Having the Theme Wedding of Your Dreams
It is a good idea to select a theme for your wedding before embarking on the journey of making wedding plans. By having a theme in mind, you will find it easier to make decisions when it comes to making your bookings for your gowns, location and other wedding items.
A well-planned theme wedding also gives you the pleasure of knowing your guests will attend a memorable wedding, where everything has been well thought out & executed for their maximum enjoyment. Your "es-theme" will rise knowing your guests will leave your wedding with sweet memories of how personal & different your wedding was. A theme wedding also offers a good reflection of you & your partners personalities as you incorporate your likes & hobbies into the scheme of themes.... and what better time to do this than at the start of your lives together.
We offer you some suggestions of easy-to-implement themes but do not stop here. Let your imagination run wild as you put together a wedding that is meaningful to you and enjoyable for your guests. Talk to a reputable Wedding Consultant if you need help with the "how-to's", the "where-to's" and the "how-much?"
Having a Theme Wedding will require good planning. Here are some of the things to look out for:
Food. While selecting a menu that suits your theme, be sensitive to the needs of ALL your guests. There may be racial, age-group &/or religious considerations.
Location. Be sure to decide if you want to have an indoor or outdoor wedding. Have an estimate of the number of guests you will be having on-hand before booking a site.
Decoration. Get help from friends or hire a Professional.
Outfits. Inform your designer of the theme you are having and listen to his/her suggestions. Do remember to wear only something you can be move around comfortably in.
Favours. Something in line with the wedding theme so guests have something to take home with them.
Guests. Choose a theme your guests will be comfortable with. You may not be able to please everyone but be sure to have something appropriate. If your theme involves guest participation, give them ample time to get involved. If not, surprise them!

We are having a seaside-themed wedding. At a craft store we found some perfect unpainted wooden boats and lighthouses (flat, about 1 ft high), which we will paint in the wedding colors of ivory and gold. Then, we will paint a number on the sails of the boats and sides of the lighthouses, which will also serve as the dinner table numbers. Around the bottom of the pieces, we will scatter sand, seashells, and sea glass.

I am putting fish bowls in the middle with sand on the bottom and real live fish inside. I am having a beach wedding so I might put floating candles.

Our wedding has a Cinderella theme. We were engaged at Disney World and vacation there often. Our centerpieces are pumpkins with silk ivy draped around them.

Each table will represent something different and specific of the island (tropical flowers in tropical sea shells, fruits bowls, little coconut tree, bananas wrapped into banana leaves, etc.). This basically will cost me a dime. It is all about "creation"

I am having a country theme wedding and my centerpieces are horseshoes made into candle holders. I am also using bails of hay, black felt hats, and bandanas to accent the tables. It is really cute!!
