Choosing the right Wedding Theme is not as easy as picking the right dress for a prom night. It could be challenging and a little help doesn’t hurt anyone.
So what are the most important things to consider?
The venue in terms of ambience is very important. If you find a venue that you love but it doesn’t work with your colors and theme, you will end with a mismatch that will affect not only the feel but also the videography done on the day.
Go with the season
The theme of your wedding is also affected by the month of the year. The summer season has its own colors and so does autumn and winter. Shades of pink, yellow and orange are good for a spring wedding while whites and pastel blues should be used for summer. Keep colors mostly dark and dory for the winter. Colors have a lot to do with culture. I perform as an Indian Dj, Pakistani Dj and Punjabi Dj in Montreal and have seen a variety of color themes. Unfortunately, not all themes match and lack of preparation is usually the reason.
Research is the key
So here comes the important part, research. The best way to come up with a good choice of the right wedding theme is research. Whilst researching it is also important to keep the cultural backgrounds in check. What may be a very good theme for an Italian wedding might not be suitable for an Indian wedding where color themes are more vibrant traditionally.
Take help of the color wheel
In order to understand colors, you don’t really have to be an art school graduate. On a color wheel, typically colors that go well together are ones that are opposites because they pair a cool and warm shade together like orange and sky blue. Other color pairings that work are ‘neighbours’. They’re similar to each other and share a primary color (yellow and orange). So in other words, both matching and contrast work as long as colors are paired together smartly.
Budget & Cost
Options and choices are endless but eventually, all comes down to budget and cost. Some themes and colors will be more expensive. An exotic theme will be costlier than a regular formal theme. So choose your theme wisely!
Now, this is a no-brainer. A lot of times some people tend to overdo the whole décor and theme. They will try to infuse themes and and settings that belong more to an amusement park. Don’t be that guy or gal. It is always better to be simple, authentic and your very own self.
