Do you want to walk down the aisle to the traditional bridal march or find something meaningful to you and your partner?
Did your color choice influence the theme of your wedding, or vice-versa? Does the time of year you're getting married make any difference with your choices?
There are so many decisions that you're expected to make when planning a wedding, but, in my opinion, these three can have the most impact on your wedding. Let's take a look at how...
There are certain color combinations that could have your guests wondering what you were thinking. For instance, unless you're having a John Deere themed wedding, I'd avoid putting green and yellow together. If you want a pastel wedding in the winter, I'd suggest using soft, muted shades instead of bright, spring-like colors. However, it's your wedding, do what you want.
See the difference? (Your wedding planner is an excellent resource to help determine the exact shades that are perfect for you.)
As far as theme goes, I say if you want it, it should be yours. Whether it's an elegant black and white affair or a carnival themed extravaganza, let your imagination runaway with you. There will always be at least one guest - usually an older relative - that doesn't 'get' the theme, just tell yourself you are expanding their life experiences and shut out any complaints. My only suggestion would be to make the theme meaningful to you and your partner, make it about the two of you.
Same thing goes with music. Choose the music that reflects your personalities and means something to you as a couple. When my daughter and son-in-law got married last year, they chose the acoustic version of Hanging By A Moment by Lifehouse for her to walk down the aisle. The recessional was Everything by Michael Buble, complete with the groom spinning the bride halfway down the aisle! It was very them.
Have you figured out the theme of this blog post yet? Who am I kidding, you probably figured it out before I did! If your wedding reflects your personality as a couple, that's all that is important. The theme, the colors, the music...choose them because you love them and not because this is what you're 'supposed' to have at a wedding.
