will your wedding have a theme

Will your wedding have a theme? If so, you will want to start jotting down ideas early. The items you need to create your wedding theme will need to be purchased and may affect decorations, your dress, the attire for the bridal party and the groom, and the reception.
Before you decide on a theme, you should do some window shopping to see if you can easily find items to fit your theme. Planning your wedding takes a lot of time. You don’t want to wait to decide on a theme because when it comes time to purchase or order items, you may find they are no longer available. What is available may not be what you had in mind. If your wedding is in the spring, you will want to start shopping as soon as spring items are placed on the shelves.
Your dress, shoes, headpiece, and flowers should also fit the theme you have chosen. Your dress will have to be ordered in advance, usually six months. If you do buy a wedding dress already in stock, alterations will be needed to fit exactly as you want. You could set your wedding date as February 14 and choose a Valentine Day theme with roses. Whatever theme you choose should also be reflected in the flowers you choose to carry and for decoration where the ceremony will be held and also the reception venue.
Most brides opt for a traditional ceremony. Others choose different themes such as a beach theme with the wedding held outdoors near a sandy beach. You can write the words for your ceremony which will add to the beauty of your theme or you can use the traditional vows.
Your reception should carry the theme of the wedding forward. The place where the reception is to be held should be decorated according to the theme you have chosen. Your table decorations and wedding favors should be coordinated to the theme you have chosen. You may also want to include music and food that is relevant to your theme.
Themes can be carried through to the honeymoon. If you use a beach theme, you may be going to a beach resort for your honeymoon. If you are planning to have your honeymoon at a later date and will spend the evening or weekend at a hotel, you can decorate the room with your theme to extend the memories of your special day.
The most important aspect of a themed wedding is to make sure you coordinate all the functions of your wedding with the theme you choose. Make it a special day for you and your groom to remember always.
