Deciding on a cohesive vision for your wedding can be one of the hardest parts of the planning process. Do you stick to classic, traditional elements, or keep things streamlined and contemporary? Do you want rustic and ethereal, or beachy and relaxed? On deciding on your theme you’re free to finally move forward with the specifics of your big day, so for your inspiration, we have rounded up some stunning wedding theme ideas to help find a theme that is perfect for you.
If you’re the kind of bride that is looking for timelessness over trends then a modern classic wedding could be the one for you. Normally on the formal side, think clean-cut, monochrome or whitewashed decor, in an elegant ballroom setting featuring beautiful green and white florals. You can opt for having subtle pastel or metallic hues as long as your palette stays refined, with clean lines and plenty of sophisticated elegance to enhance the classic details of your venue and styling elements.

As you can imagine this theme is all about ramping up the romance with soft pastel shades and an abundance of delicate florals. Slightly more relaxed than the classic theme, but by no means less luxurious, this style embraces colour and soft, feminine touches; warm lighting, scattered rose petals and floaty, ethereal fabrics. Perfect for an outdoor wedding or an interior reception with classic features that can act as a blank canvas.
