A wedding has always been a joyous occasion in which friends and families come together to celebrate the joining of two lives into one. For ages, the wedding itself was the event. All weddings followed the same path, for the most part: white dress, church, the throwing of rice, etc., but recent years have brought loads of change. Today, the “traditional” church wedding is no longer the norm.
Theme weddings are taking place every weekend of the year all throughout the world. A wedding without a theme is like a bride without something blue…wait, does that belong in a theme wedding that isn’t the “Traditional” theme? In addition to going traditional, happy couples can now plan theme weddings around a favorite destination, flower, or even their pet! Theme weddings can whisk you back into a historical period of time, or into the presence of the gods themselves. It doesn’t seem to matter what interests you, a wedding theme can be created around it.
If you have chosen a theme for your wedding, it means that every part of the celebration should branch out from the tree that is your theme. There is a branch for decorations, a branch for apparel, and a branch for invitations.
