Happy #WeddingWednesday! This week, we’re all about themes – a MUST HAVE for any wedding. As a bride, you’ll want to decide your theme well before you pick your venue – your theme will help you determine things like your ideal location/scenery, floral types, and stationery style (our gal Jessica at Whimsy B. Paperie is the best!). And if you’re lucky enough to have an awesome wedding planner (ahem… us!), you’ll even think about the nitty gritty details like silverware style, napkin folding techniques and custom glassware options for your tablescape… all of which will complement your overall theme.
Here we have a few of our favorite themes, and venues too! Think of these as free inspiration boards for all of you brides to be!
Think luxury, glamour, dreamy. Castle weddings are truly one of a kind. Every detail needs to be perfectly planned to ensure the true beauty of the location and of the day stand out. Places like Oheka Castle, Pleasantdale Chateau and Sands Point Preserve are the creme de la creme of Castle weddings.
A laid back, rustic garden wedding can be one of the most beautiful (and not to mention fun) weddings! The great thing about a wedding of this theme is that you can really get imaginative and go above and beyond with planning the small details – and your guests will be sure to remember them! This wedding season we’re loving venues like Martha Clara Vineyard, NY Botanical Gardens and Chelsea Mansion. They all offer very different “garden-like” atmospheres, and are pretty much a clean slate in creating a gorgeous and rustic wedding event!
We love nothing more than getting dressed to the nines for a beautiful evening out. And that’s what guests that attend an elegant ballroom wedding expect – glitz, glam and elaborate decor. NYC is famous for it’s stunning ballroom venues like Capitale and The Pierre, two breathtaking venues that are out-of-this-world gorgeous. And NJ is home to some spectacular elegant ballrooms like The Rockleigh and The Venetian, both of which boast ornate ceilings and decor that help create a glamorous ballroom affair.
From decor like ghost chairs, to gorgeous floral designs draped with colorful orchids, the modern chic wedding is trendy on the outside but traditional on the inside. Many of today’s modern chic weddings have a little of every theme rolled up into one – they rely heavily on over-the-top floral arrangements, and beautiful venues that emit every bit of glam. Most modern venues can be found in major cities – and since NYC is our playground, we’re extremely found of venues like the Tribeca Rooftop and Glass Houses. What we love about these venues is that you can create a breathtaking wedding event from the ground, up.
We hope these themes have inspired you a little to think outside the box and explore your inner wedding goddess! And remember, using a wedding planner (like us!) will help you create the wedding of your dreams, no matter what your theme is!
