Are you in the early stages of planning your wedding and don’t like the idea of a traditional event? Maybe the big typical wedding just isn’t your couple style. Instead of conforming to what you think a wedding should look like, there are plenty of unique wedding themes to choose from that will make you excited about your big day. There are no rules when it comes to weddings, you are free to create any kind of event that suits you.
Here’s a look at three unique wedding themes that could be perfect for your big day.
Embrace Hollywood and Recreate Your Favorite Movie
Do you have a favorite movie or movie series that the two of you have enjoyed together? This can be the perfect theme for your big day, even allowing you to recreate a scene straight from the film. Depending on what the movie is, you may wish to turn your wedding into a costume event, asking guests to dress from characters in the movie.
Some great movies or franchises to use as inspiration include:
- Marvel Superheroes
- Indiana Jones
- Harry Potter
- Star Wars
Don’t forget to complete the full effect with music straight from the movie.
Create a Roar with a Dinosaur-Themed Wedding
If you like the idea of something unique and unexpected you may want to choose a dinosaur theme wedding. This will certainly be a wedding to remember, not just for the two of you, but for all your guests as well. You can go all out and look into purchasing or renting dinosaur animatronics that look and sound realistic. Why not set up a photo booth or section where guests can pose with dinosaurs? You can even hire people to walk around in dinosaur costumes.
Let the dinosaur theme also guide your color palette when it comes to bridesmaid’s dresses, table linens, table décor, etc.
The Ultimate Tiki Party – Ensure Your Guests Have a Fabulous Time
For couples that are focused on fun and creating a high-energy experience for guests, a Tiki-themed wedding is perfect. This one screams a casual good time, which can be reflected in all the details. Start with the dress code, asking guests to dress for a casual beach party, and weave Tiki-themed décor throughout the entire event space.
A cool feature would be to serve up customized Tiki-inspired drinks and beach-party-approved appetizers. You can even skip the sit-down meal and keep things ultra-casual. This is perfect for afternoon weddings that don’t stretch into the evening.
Be sure to pick floral arrangements that would be found at an authentic Tiki party and use things such as pineapples and palm leaves as your centerpieces. Tiki torches will help set the mood, and you can find flameless varieties that offer the right vibe without any danger.
The lesson to be learned is that you don’t need to feel boxed in by the traditional and expected wedding theme. You can get as creative as you like — this is your day and it needs to be perfect for the two of you.
