As the fall wedding season approaches, I tend to think about all the wonderful colors of the fall. Browns, and Reds, and Oranges. Yellows, and even Black and Purple. Fall is also the time when most people use more vibrant colors instead of pastels. I've seen deep Fushias, vital Greens and striking Golds. There are so many choices, and endless combinations! You also see a lot of themed weddings this time of year. Renn Faires are in full swing, so why not have a medieval themed wedding? Or the obvious but always fun, Halloween Wedding? Themes can add flair, but they also a great tool for keeping things looking consistant. A non- themed wedding might find it difficult to keep a consistant look, since there is nothing in place to govern the look. The Bride says "elegant," but that could be different for everyone. If the Bride were to say something more specific, like Victorian Elegance, now you have theme, and it will be much easier to maintain that consistancy. Not all themes needs to be as restrictive as Halloween, or Pirate. Victorian Elegance is a perfectly acceptable theme, but still allows for a lot of freedom. I hope this has helped shed just a glimmer of light on themes. If you'd like to to hear more on the subject, leave me a comment! Thanks!
