Some people don’t have a single creative bone in their body and this serves them ill when it comes time to plan a wedding, especially since no wedding today is devoid of a theme. Even when the bride and groom are the simplest folk in the world, the wedding somehow adopts at least a colour as a theme. So if you’re stuck for ideas and need them fast, here are some inspirational sources that won’t disappoint:
Information Mecca: The Internet
The internet is our answer to pretty much everything. Need ideas for a prom dress? Search online. Need ideas for a wedding dress? Search online. In fact, all you need to do is google some key phrases like “wedding theme inspiration” or “wedding theme ideas” and you will receive page after page of results ranging from the traditional and safe to weird and kooky. The internet can also help you test the waters by showing you what is realistically possible to do and what isn’t, as well as giving you ideas that you can adapt to suit your personal style. If you want to do a book themed wedding, there are sites dedicated to which book you need to go with and how. Take your pick.
Wedding Industry Personnel
This is their job and they’ve been doing this their whole lives, so a wedding planner, a wedding florist, a wedding cake maker, a wedding stylist or photographer etc. are excellent people to turn to for inspiration. You can ask one or two of those you are most familiar to, or ask everyone for ideas and then pick one. Check this link http://www.gormanscanberraflorist.com.au/wedding-flowers/ if your looking for the best wedding florist.
Some of the more practical ones to ask would be Gorman’s Florist and wedding stylist (if you don’t have a planner) because they will tell you what is achievable in the time you have and for the time you’ll be getting married. A Halloween themed wedding is cute, but in poor taste during Christmas time. These things won’t slip by the consummate professional, so you can safely turn to them for help.
The Creative Genius Family Member/ Friend
Yet another source of inspiration, be wary of taking on this option however as they will take it as a license to plan the entire wedding. Being much more than a mere interested party, a friend or family member will take over the wedding if you’re not careful (remember Monica with Phoebe’s wedding in Friends?). The creative genius however, is a good source. They will know your personal taste and they will use their own brilliant ideas to conjure up a theme that is just right. Take some time to sit down and brainstorm ideas with them and stop them if they get too carried away; it will be worth the time.
