DIY Centerpieces for Trending Wedding Themes
Vintage weddings are elegant events that tend to pair pastel colors with classic white china. Like vintage stores, vintage weddings are a throwback to an earlier time–namely the lavish, carefree dinner parties associated with that of Marie Antoinette in the late 18th century.
Rustic themed weddings are characterized by nature themes and earth tones. Find inspiration from the great outdoors or tasteful symbols of agriculture like hay, wheat, and wood–barnyard weddings are more popular than ever and often feature a rustic theme with burlap tablescapes.
What is a whimsical themed wedding? Definitions vary, but whimsy is defined as extravagant, fanciful, and playful. Everything from brightly colored carnival to pixy, dream like themed weddings are grouped as whimsical weddings. These next two pictures show the best of both whimsical worlds!
Romantic weddings are as if the bride and groom are sharing the intimate setting of a first date. Think of this theme like a romantic dinner setting that is dimly lit with lots of candles. The keyword for a romantic wedding is intimate.
