30 Wedding Themes to Inspire you

A list of 30 unique and unusual wedding themes to consider.

Your wedding doesn't have to follow a specific theme, but more often than not, couples hosting weddings across our collection of unique wedding venues will choose a theme equally as unique to display throughout their day. Whether it be a wedding theme specific to you as a couple or quite simply a specific colour scheme, you can have plenty of fun picking and choosing accessories to support it; from your invitations to the cake and beyond. We're always excited to see how creative our couples can get with their wedding theme ideas. Which wedding theme will you choose? 

30 Wedding Theme Ideas

We’ve come up with 30 wedding theme ideas to inspire you…

1. Floral wedding theme

We don't just mean flowers when we talk about a floral wedding theme. Introduce floral detailing on your wedding stationery or buy a wedding dress covered top to toe in stunning floral lace. A floral wedding theme works well during any month of the year.

2. Monochrome wedding theme

If you’re a huge fan of monochrome then a black and white theme throughout your wedding day could look truly striking. Consider having your bridesmaids wear all black, a stylish black and white striped cake or mix match black and white tablecloths to complete your monochrome wedding style.

3. British Wedding theme 

If you’ve loved watching the Royal family celebrate various occasions over the past several years then a British wedding theme could be for you! From a red, white and blue colour scheme to a proper English tea party and a Union Jack wedding cake, your Regal wedding theme could come together in no time.

4. Country Garden wedding theme

If you’re getting married during the summer months then a country garden wedding theme could be ideal. Consider giant garden games outside, Pimms on the lawn in front of a string quartet or jam jars filled with home grown flowers.
