Getting married is the dream of many. The wedding day is a magical moment for lovers, where they swear eternal love and, with it, a new cycle begins in their lives. However, there are those who opt for a classic wedding in a church or court and those who take the opportunity to make a difference by thinking about how to make a different wedding, hence many resorts to themed weddings. What is a themed wedding? Very simple: they are weddings where all the details are set and related to a specific theme. This, which began a few years ago as a trend, has become much more than that: now it is a playful custom for everyone to remember the wedding, not only emotionally, but also fun. If you are thinking of organizing an original wedding, in this article we give you ideas to make a themed wedding.
Travel themed weddings
This is one of the themes that the couple most often choose, either because they are passionate about traveling the world because their origins are in another country, or because, for whatever reason, that other place is in their hearts. A clear example of travel-themed weddings would be:
Mexican themed wedding
To have a wedding set in Mexico, it is essential that you have the essential elements that identify that country: hats, mustaches, and mariachis.
Background music: You can choose to have the mariachis play after you say “I do,” while you walk down the aisle, or both. A Mexican-themed wedding is not if there are no mariachis.
Sombreros: you can distribute Mexican hats among your guests, and even reserve special ones for you. You can also distribute false mustaches among the attendees, even form a game with it.
Decorations: if there is a garden, you can decorate it with cacti, very typical of the Latin country. Of course, they can be fake, or carefully remove the spikes so that no one gets hurt.
The food: this is the most important thing if you want your wedding to scream that it is set in Mexico. It brings to the menu lots of tacos and burritos with extra avocado and, above all, lots of spicy food.
Dress: one option is to ask attendees to dress in classic Mexican clothing to make everything even more authentic, or you can ask your youngest relatives (if they are the ones who bring the rings) to dress like that.
Movie themed weddings
Cinema or series is another of the options that are most popular today. An example of each would be:
Harry Potter-themed wedding
All Harry Potter fans know that there are things that should be present at a wedding, such as:
The drinks: here you have several options, for example, the drinks can be named after magic potions or simply distribute the drinks in containers like those that appear in the mythical movie.
The food: we cannot forget the dragées of all flavors. There are several ways to get them online and you can distribute them among attendees as if they were trinkets. Would anyone find one that tasted like vomit?
Decoration: of course, in the decoration, you cannot miss brooms, owls, and wands. And if you also want to give a more fun touch to the wedding, you can add a sorting hat so that it tells you which Hogwarts house you belong to and, as a result, sit at the tables to eat with the house that has touched you.
Clothing: if all of the above is not enough, you can look for magician costumes to spend the day in the most fun way possible.
Themed wedding based on Game of Thrones
For fans of the Game of Thrones series, you cannot miss these ideas:
Invitations: they can be written with the mythical phrase, but retouched, Wedding is coming, a detail that the guests will not go unnoticed.
Game of Thrones Font – It’s very easy to find on the internet by searching for it by the same name. Introducing it both in the invitations and in the cards to indicate where the attendees sit at the wedding banquet will be a fun detail that no one will forget.
Decoration: you can not miss swords, emblems with the different houses, decorations with dragon eggs, or even horses (if possible).
Clothing: without a doubt, the best setting is to dress up as the characters of this famous series, including the bride and groom.
Vintage themed weddings
Vintage weddings are another favorite when it comes to making a themed wedding. The most common of all is:
The 1920s themed wedding
When doing a 1920s wedding, there are some elements that cannot be missing:
Wedding dress: the dresses of that time were long and with simple lines, and if you add a hairstyle with waves and a lace band or a hair clip with white feathers on the head, it will look much better.
Tables for the banquet: essential that they be made of glass and with slender shapes. So they were and so they should be.
Flowers: Flowers are another of the classic elements of the 20s, but not just any type of flower, they must be light and soft colors, as in the past.
Exterior decoration: some old logs, wooden lamps, covered with lace, or garlands of satin ribbons with pearls are all that is needed for an authentic setting.
Invitations: one idea is that the invitations have drawings from the 20s and in pastel colors.
And of course, you can’t forget about: feathers, pearls, and period hairstyles everywhere!
Music themed weddings
If it’s a music-themed wedding you’re looking for, there are plenty of examples to choose from, including:
Grease themed wedding
In Grease there are some details that are key and cannot be missing from your wedding, let’s see some:
Car: the car is essential. If you get a Grease-style car where you can hang a Just married, it will be a moment that no one will ever forget.
The toupees: men, you already know what you have to do.
The Bride and Groom: If you want to show that you are true fan, you must transform into the doubles of John Travolta and Olivia Newton.
The music: and of course, the songs and choreography cannot be missing to make it a true musical wedding in this film.
Mamma Mia-themed wedding!
Wedding in the purest Greek style for fans of this famous musical. Here are some ideas about what you could do:
Scenario: this, whether we like it or not, is the most important thing. Mamma Mia! it was shot on an island, so if you don’t want to travel to the island of Skopelos, which is where the movie was shot, you can go to any other island or even to a beach.
Colors: white and blue were the most characteristic colors of the musical due to the fact that they were on the Greek islands. Using these colors intelligently will make all your guests feel like they are in the movie.
Flower crown: in the film, the bride was wearing a flower crown on her head. This is an important detail if you want everyone to relate to it.
Music: of course, Abba’s songs are a must, as well as the choreography for the bravest.
In fact, there are companies like Mamma-Mia Weddings that organize weddings in Greece in the style of this famous musical.
You can also choose to simply have a music-inspired wedding, which can include:
A concert: although hiring your favorite group would be a bit expensive, you can instead hire a tribute band.
Wedding invitations with musical notes: musical notes must appear, it is a rule, just like the sun must rise every morning.
Musical photocall: perfect for those who want to take photos in an original and fun way. If you base the wedding on a specific musical group, the photocall can have their logo or the image of one of their albums.
Instrument-shaped wedding cake: the most important detail of all. What music lover would not want to taste a delicious violin, for example?Tags: Ideas for a themed wedding, Themed Wedding
