Theme Wedding For Every Bride

One of the most common questions that comes to the mind of every bride is what would be a suitable theme for her wedding?  You may want to start at the ceremony with your bridesmaid’s dresses and carry it through to the reception.

Defining a wedding theme helps the decision-making process for décor, colors, centerpieces, etc.  Having a beach ceremony, use shells and tiki torches at your reception. Considering a rustic western, or a vintage theme think about arriving at the ceremony or reception in a carriage, wagon or 1940 limousine.

Get back to nature with this organic yet amazing theme for people who love outdoor activities. Having your wedding arranged in the actual forest by setting up large pillar candles, hanging lightweight fabrics and positioning flower arrangements for the ceremony will make the ambiance wild and unique.

If you wish to carry out the ceremony indoors rather than in the forest, bring the woods inside with leaves, stumps, and branches throughout to create a rustic atmosphere.

A menu from Farm to Table would be an added treat.
