ideas & inspiration
There’s having a wedding theme. And then there’s having a themed wedding. Whether you’re planning a nod to your favourite films or going the full hog and asking your guests to dress up as characters from the silver screen, here are some of our favourite ideas…
If you’re a bit of a book worm, then a literary themed wedding could be very you. Whether it’s taking inspiration from Jane Austen for your wedding dress or naming your tables after Penguin Classics, there are so many beautiful and fun ways you can reference your love of books throughout the day.
Film fans can celebrate their hen party with a Dirty Dancing masterclass. Or perhaps a spot of zombie paintball for the horror-loving groom and his mates. For the big day itself you could recreate the posters from films you love for your tablenames, keep your guests entertained between courses with a movie themed quiz and take a twirl around the dancefloor to your favourite theme tune.
Or you could draw inspiration from your favourite film of all time. How about a beautiful winter wedding based on the Chronicles of Narnia (pictured) or a chic vintage affair inspired by Breakfast at Tiffany’s? Or why not go all out with a Labyrinth themed wedding (and if you do, please send us the photos!)?
If you share a love of travel or hail from different corners of the globe and have been clocking up the air-miles, then bringing this into your wedding will be a great talking point. From airline ticket Save the Dates to map-of-the-world tableplans, there’s so much scope here.
Maybe you’re both gamers. Or perhaps you love music/photography/food/the circus/Star Wars. A shared hobby or passion is another great starting point to develop a wedding theme from. Just avoid Breaking Bad, unless you really have a thing for hazmat suits…
Songs, the Sixties, something else entirely? We’d love to hear what has inspired your wedding theme. Christina x
