By Jen Carter

Hopefully they will lead you to selecting a memorable wedding that will keep your family members and friends laughing and smiling for years to come.
How Do I Select a Wedding Theme?
Choose something that you and your partner thing is going to go over well with your guests. The idea should capture fun and romance.
Make sure that the theme is something that enraptures both of your personalities.
Make sure that your wedding theme idea can coincide with decorations.
Make sure that your theme is not in poor taste. You most definitely do not want to insult or disgust your guests
Select Invitations for Your Themed Wedding:
Your wedding invitation should explain your wedding theme to your guests
Explain why you chose the theme to your guests
If you wish for guests to come arrive in ‘theme’ attire, this is the time to inform them
If you will be serving ‘theme foods’ inform guests in the invitation
Your wedding invitations should fit your wedding theme so there’s not any confusion
Provide contact information so you can clarify things if your guests are confused
Provide a map and written directions to the reception area so that your guests can find the location with ease.
Some Things to Consider About a Themed Wedding:
Etiquette shouldn’t be stressed, as a themed wedding is supposed to be relaxing and fun.
Many traditional rules (etiquette) that apply to traditional weddings should be disregarded as many modern themed weddings are non-traditional wedding, except in the case of the formal themed wedding.
Take the season and weather into consideration when planning your theme. It would be ridiculous to invite guests to a Beach Wedding party in January and request for them to wear bathing suit attire
Inform your vendors of your theme and any attire you may be asking guests to wear.
If you have a specific theme in mind, but you don’t know how to pull it off, hire a coordinator to handle it for you. As professionals, they know exactly how to make your themed wedding a success.
If your wedding theme is a specific ear, and you’re not sure how to decorate or dress, do some research. The internet and the public library are excellent research tools to help make your dream wedding theme become a wedding theme reality.
