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 25: Eco-friendly wedding

Eco-friendly weddings are becoming increasingly poplar. These couples tend to lean towards  recyclable papers for invitations and thank you cards, natural elements in their decor, guest favors that consist of plants or seeds, and anything else that decreases the effect on our planet. These weddings can be just as beautiful and chic as any other theme. ImageImageImageImageImageImage

31 Days of Weddings-Day 23: Spring Wedding

Spring weddings bring gorgeous and bright flowers into every element, from the bouquets, to the reception centerpieces. Popular spring flowers to use are: roses, tulips, daffodils, peonies, and gerber daises, but you can incorporate any other brightly colored floral into the mix, or add touches of classic wedding flowers such as calla lilies to add some white. ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

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
