Should I choose a theme for my wedding?

Stewart Tuesday, 6th of September 2011

I am considering a 1960's retro theme for my wedding. Is this a good idea?

It is a fantastic idea to have a theme or at least a colour scheme for your wedding. A theme gives your suppliers a foundation to work with to create the wedding of your dreams. Invitations, flowers, reception decor, wedding cake, wedding dress, suit hire etc. - everything can be tied in with your theme and colour scheme.
A retro wedding invitation could include groovy tie dye colours, cupcakes can easily be decorated in day-glo icing colors for your 1960's look or with silvery accents for a Deco finish. For a great retro style wedding favour idea how about treating your guests to some love beads or peace sign jewellery or putting together a custom-made CD of classic rock tunes?
The skys the limit with this fun and inspiring theme. Good luck!
