31 Days of Weddings-Day 29: Beach Theme

We have so far covered nautical weddings and hawaiian/caribbean themes, but that still leaves us with a Beach Theme.

Beach Theme weddings play more into simple elements-blue water, sand, shells/starfish, messages in a bottle, etc. They tend to not use bold colors like in the caribbean style, and stick to more watery blues and whites with the touches of brown from the sand.

31 Days of Weddings-Day 20: Mardi Gras Themed

This theme is very unique in that you can take it over the top, or keep it simple, and both ways are going to read to your guests as Mardi Gras. 

With making it a true over the top Mardi Gras themed party, use ornate decorations: all the bright colors (purples, greens, golds), heavy draping in those colors, large ornate centerpieces with masks, table cloths and chair covers that stick to those color schemes, etc. Be bold, and it will definitely scream Mardi Gras! ImageImageImageImageImage

Or, you can keep it more sophisticated and classy by using the colors as inspiration. PIck one to be your main color (for table linens let’s say) and use another for uplighting around the space. Having each color represent an area in the room instead of mixing all of them together in every element, will take this theme to the “wedding” level. Keep masks simple and white but still ornate in the design, and use bright florals to depict the colors for you. Very classy.ImageImageImageImage

31 Days of Weddings-Day 17: Caribbean/Hawaiian Theme

Caribbean and tropical themes are great for providing guests with culture and bring pops of color. Being in the midwest, they are most common for destination weddings that want to bring the ceremony experience back to friends and family who could not attend. Tropical weddings consist of bright colors, exotic floral choices, calm and easy decor, and lots of festive music and complete enjoyment!ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

Makes me want to go to hawaii right now. Aloha!

31 Days of Weddings-Day 8: Bollywood Theme

Traditional indian weddings are absolutely beautiful: bright colors, elaborate fabrics, bright gold accents, and a comfy atmosphere with rugs, and couches/chairs instead of traditional folding chairs. 

The attire is bright fabric, in a wrap-very traditional.Image
