Theming your wedding day is a great way to ensure your whole wedding day feels cohesive, flows well, and makes sense. Choosing your own theme puts your personal stamp on the wedding day which helps create a more unique, special and memorable experience for both you and your guests. It can be as simple as choosing a colour scheme or as out there as a compulsory fancy dress code.

What will my guests think?

By setting a theme for your wedding day you give your guests an idea of what to expect and create a buzz of anticipation and suspense. Everyone will be counting down the days to see what’s in store for your big day! Even if you don’t state a dress code, your theme will help your guests decide what to wear to your wedding– and they’ll thank you for it!

What theme should I choose for my wedding?

Think about what’s important to you as a couple, what you enjoy doing together and what makes you two special. You could theme your wedding day based on your favourite movie, book, song, colour, sports team, or anything else that represents you and your relationship. Talk to your wedding planner or celebrant for ideas and advice.

How do I theme my wedding day and wedding ceremony?

From your invites to the venue, the dress to the ceremony, the flowers to the music and everything in between. Search online and consult with your wedding planner and celebrant for inspiration and practical advice.
