Trends and fashions change very rapidly but it is true to say that ‘theming’ your wedding is very in vogue at the moment.
One of the simplest themes to incorporate into your wedding at the moment is butterflies, they can be included in many elements of your day, from hair pieces to table confetti.
Butterflies are usual evoke a cheerful feel to the day which is quite whimsical and light hearted.
The inclusion of any themed elements to your day could be quite subtle are far more obvious as with this amazing wedding dress which is printed with large scale multi coloured butterflies, cut with a full skirt to show off this amazing print- just wonderful. And if you had these amazing Aruna Seth shoes hugging your toes you would surely want to show their sparkly butterflies to the world. Brilliantly contemporary.
So a more discreet method of inclusion could come through the choice of subtle pastel colours which are still carrying the butterfly imagery, as with these delicate lacy butterfly cup cake cases or this stylish 3 tier wedding cake adorned with scattered paper butterflies. Elegantly simple
And so to the venue styling and how to get the continuation of your theme flowing to the room decor. Simple really, with this colourful and tropical setting, butterfly table numbers and cut out name place cards fluttering on the edge of the wine glasses. Fantastic fun.
So from a simple ‘theme’ such as butterflies, you can see firstly how you can achieve three very different styles and just how easy it is to run the idea through the entire day.
A more simple approach is to stick with a colour theme that runs through your wedding, which is almost a given, and most commonly stems from the colour of the flowers or bridesmaids dresses. Theming a wedding is not for everyone but for those that feel everything should have a common thread – from those initial invitations to the cutting of the cake. On our travels popping chair covers on we have come across many varied themes, which are quite easy to spot just from the decor of the venue. One of the most fun themes I have come across was a ‘Hawaiian’ themed wedding with cocktail umbrellas and floral leis for all the guests to wear, I wonder if the bride wore a grass skirt?
