When most of us think about a wedding theme, we tend to gravitate toward a color grouping or style. However, a wedding is a great event to tie in a theme or a distinct personality! Sometimes it’s can subtly influence the design & overall day, while others it can define it! Here are a three wedding “themes” that are fantastic for your Vermont Wedding.
To us, a brunch wedding is one of the most enjoyable themes to bring to life for your wedding day. It’s especially fitting if you both love going to breakfast together and with friends and family or simply love to create breakfast or brunch menus at home.
Consider incorporating a create your own mimosa bar or ask your bartending team to concoct a mimosa themed specialty cocktail. Review brunch menu options with your caterer, and don’t hesitate to opt for a complete variety of your favorite classics. In terms of palettes, bright colors are wonderful to see during daytime weddings because they match the overall feel of the celebration. Yellow always feels particularly appropriate! And, think about opting for dancing and backyard games.
If you frequently travel together and are always planning your next trip, incorporating a hobby you both share into your wedding theme is a wonderful idea. And, travel offers plenty of inspiration!
Let’s start with stationery! Consult with a stationery designer about a plane ticket inspired save the date, and carry the theme through to your wedding invitation. You could also opt for maps, globes, or a color palette that reminds you of a favorite trip.
Next, pull inspiration from your most enjoyable destinations into your reception design. Things like bouquets, centerpieces, and signage all beckon to be customized. Some couples even opt to name tables after favorite locations they’ve visited in lieu of table numbers. You could use the table numbers as a guide to the first (Table 1), second (Table 2), third (Table 3), and so on trips you have taken together.
Lastly, have guests to weigh in! Ask them to sign a map instead of a traditional guest book, or think about asking them to offer their insight into future trips and must-see sights you need to see throughout your marriage.
If you and your partner love experiencing new foods and restaurants together, take that inspiration and allow it to guide the choices you make for your wedding day. A farm-to-table or foodie wedding is a welcome choice for many wedding styles, especially those with a rustic or backyard feel.
Consider working with your florist to incorporate fruit or vegetables into your wedding day arrangements. And, of course, knock your wedding menu out of the park! Introducing guests to foods you’ve tried throughout your relationship would be a fun twist on this theme. Plus, you could also opt to create a farm-to-table menu with seasonal options.
Another idea is to incorporate food trucks! Food trucks are welcomed during cocktail hour when guests are looking to try many options, and they always feel like a celebratory indulgence after a ceremony. They’re also a popular option for dinner because they allow guests to experience different foods from different locales.
Everyone will definitely remember what they ate at your celebration!
