Trying to choose your wedding is one of the most challenging tasks when it comes to planning and organising of your big day. there are so many factors to consider. It needs to convey who you are while also representing that special something that binds your relationship together. Other considerations include the weather, the location and of course the people who will be in attendance. I’ve been to beautiful weddings n Majorca with a tropical feel. They had a pool party, a calypso band and some mambo dancing at the reception. There have also been more refined events in the searing beauty of the Santorini. There are so many options to choose from so hopefully, these tips can help guide you in the right direction.
- Look inside yourself!
This about you and your soul mate. Your interests, experiences, your history and your life so let the theme reflect that. Think about when you first met your partner and the things that you most enjoy doing together. It could include adventure travel, Indian food or anything else that falls under the broad nomenclature that is culture. Do that and the decision will become much easier, I promise!
2. Location! Location! Location!
The location where you decide to have your wedding will obviously have a major impact on the theme that you choose. Think about this carefully. Be it a lush vineyard in the south of France or a cool, snowy setting in The Alps you’ve got to be sure it will compliment the theme and vice versa. That said any wedding in the places I’ve just mentioned will be sure to be a hit!
3. Ask Family & Friends For Advice
It’s important to include family and friends in the preparation of the big day because they know you best and this is especially the case when it comes to picking your theme. Let them contribute to the school of ideas that will inspire your theme. Ask them about their personal experiences of you as a child and when you were a teen. You never know you might get some pearls of inspiration!
