The things I do for love.
Even since I’ve met my husband and said “I do!”, I knew our wedding was going to be representative of what brought us together… our shared passions! Needless to say, being a mental health warrior made the planning more difficult, but at the end of the day I had the support of a beautiful soul and we went through all the highs and lows together, never letting go of each other’s hand.
Here is some tips&tricks from my side to you, dear reader, regarding planning a thematic wedding…
It’s all in the details…
Whether your theme is Marvel or Disney-inspired, a dark or princess theme, it is all in the details. Needless to say you will most likely will not find all the products in the same location, so be prepared to browse, browse, browse.
The more unknown or unpopular the theme is, the harder it is to find the appropriate decoration and clothes. You might need to go solo on this one, so be prepared. Most of the decorations at my wedding were hand made, which was a time consuming activity. But, at the end of the day, it you enjoy it then… why not?
Picking up a theme
Picking out wedding themes can be one of the hardest planning pieces that every couple is faced with. Do you want to go the romantic route, or keep things fresh and modern? Once you pinpoint the theme of your dreams, you can officially move forward with the rest of your wedding plans.
What’s Your Vibe?
If you’re movie lovers, choose an old Hollywood or cinema style! Love all things country and fun? Go for a summer fete or garden party theme. Prefer to keep things traditional? White weddings can still have plenty of wow-factor.
Time, time, time!
As mentioned above, it is all about taking the time for the planning. While love has nothing to do with planning a wedding and you can decide to have a simple ceremony, be aware that as soon as you promise people a thematic party, stakes will be high.
And lastly, have fun.
Remember that it is all about love, regardless of what goes right and what goes wrong, or, as we say in programming, it is not a bug… it is a feature!
A marriage is a moving process, a living thing, and if it stops being fed with these existential nutrients, it will finally expire. Complacency and laziness is what kills marriage, far more than lack of love, and that is why it is often described as hard work. But no work is ultimately more rewarding.
So, what is your idea of a perfect wedding? Looking forward to hearing your ideas!
