The look and feel of the wedding decorations that you use are generally influenced by the theme that you have chosen. You can literally name the theme of your wedding, like " A Night in Paris" and decorate everything with a romantic, French flair. On the other hand, the theme can be a more generalized "idea" and pull influence from a color scheme or activity that you enjoy as a couple.
You don't have to name the theme, but there will be something universal throughout your wedding planning that will influence the look and feel of your celebration. Here are a few wonderful ideas from WhereBridesGo.com that might get your creative juices flowing.
This brings to mind a wedding ceremony surrounded by a garden full of beautiful blooms, lots of rose petals everywhere, and aromatic scents. If you have your wedding in an actual garden, very little decoration will be required because nature will provide it for you. In that case, you can concentrate more on other areas, like the table settings and guest favors.
Western-style rustic weddings and country-themed "I do's" have been a popular trend for many years, and they are still popular today. Burlap and lace, lucky horseshoes, and lots of natural elements make this style charming and romantic. It's the perfect theme for a wedding on a ranch or in a barn.
The wind in your hair and the sand under your feet. A beach wedding with the water as your backdrop is always a stunning sight. Make use of nautical elements such as seashells, starfish, rope, and sunshine.
Nearly every little girl dreams of being whisked away by her handsome prince at some point. Make that dream a reality by using a romantic fairy tale theme for your wedding. Take inspiration from your favorite storybooks, and at the end of the evening, drive away to your own happily ever after.
Shimmer & Shine
Metallics and sparkles always make a glamorous statement. A wedding highlighted with shiny golds and silver and glittery accents will put all of your guests in a fun, party mood. Any accent color works beautifully with these, both in brights and pastels.
