Choosing a Wedding Theme

When it comes to planning a wedding, for many couples, choosing a theme may be the simplest decision you will make. The most important criteria is to decide upon a wedding theme which best suits your personalities. Choosing a theme first will guide you both in the decisions and selections of the venue, decorations, food and beverage and many other critical details to ensure a perfect and fun-filled day is had by all.

Beach WeddingsA themed wedding should reflect both the bride and groom and your lives together. The process of planning a wedding can be long and meticulous but it is a wonderful experience for a couple to share, strengthening the relationship further to ensure that when the wedding day finally arrives it will be something for everybody to enjoy and remember.

When it comes to choosing a wedding theme there are many. Perhaps you are looking for a formal and sophisticated theme or a romantic, historical or traditional wedding day. Whatever you decide upon, choosing the right theme from the onset of planning will give you a much better understanding and added focus to figure out arrangements that need to be made and will in the long run, save you both time and money.

Beach Weddings
If you are looking for a simple, natural and beautiful wedding a beach theme is the perfect solution. Not everybody wants to get married with sand between their toes but for those who do, beach weddings can be spectacular and memorable, set amongst backdrops of elegant sunrises and mesmerising sunsets and long stretches of natural coastline and glittering oceans. Within the beach theme are endless possibilities for details such as maritime styling, a tropical zone, blue and white or sailboat themes.

There are a variety of accommodation options when it comes to beach weddings, like renting a private home, booking space in a beachfront hotel, or a club house, or reserving the hottest beachside restaurant in town.

Garden Weddings
There are many swoon-worthy popular garden spots to hold weddings throughout Australia, with a variety of style options available. Planning a garden wedding can be a whole lot of fun offering a romantic and striking location to celebrate your special day.

Gardens and unstructured spaces allow you to set the tone to be as elegant or informal as you like, a casual park or a formal English garden that suits your taste. You could even let Mother Nature do the decorating with just a few strategically placed plants and lighting allowing you to personalise the setting. A garden wedding can be themed for every season; autumn could bring a harvest theme, with rustic colours and hearty fare. Winter weddings can be dressed with fairy lights and white branches for an après-ski chic vibe. A garden wedding is a chance to celebrate your love and what better time than in Spring when flirty blooms are bountiful and a gazebo sets the scene. Summer garden weddings are beautiful for exchanging vows in the summer sunshine under a floral draped pergola.

Garden Wedding themes can include floral, English rose, country charm and picnic style.

Church WeddingCastle or Historic Wedding Theme
There’s something magical about marrying in a setting that transports you to another time, providing your wedding with a landmark history which becomes your own.

Historical settings provide colour and intensity on a grand scale, whether it is a stately home, historic house or art gallery.

Many of these locations are well equipped to handle weddings and events and have large open spaces, grand staircases, colonial chandeliers and high ceilings, and candlelit settings perfect for beautiful and dramatic photographs.

Themes could include medieval, avante garde, classic elegance, luxe bohemian and modern gothic.

Vineyard Winery WeddingVinyard Wedding Theme
A vineyard wedding offers a spectacular backdrop for exchanging vows, with plenty of lush greenery and free flowing wines. If you love wine and the beautiful vistas of vineyards there are many wineries in Australia that would make the perfect location for your upcoming nuptials.

To choose your winery it is important to take a visit to the wine country and scour the area for potential wedding venues. Many wineries give special rates and wedding packages so it is important to shop around.

Once you have selected the winery, scout the specific location of your nuptials beforehand. Choices can include gazebos overlooking the vineyards to beautiful indoor settings.

Consider wedding flavours that tie in with the winery theme. Lodging can be booked at many wineries for the wedding party and guests. Find out of you have exclusive use of the property and whether you need to book all the rooms out.
