Whimsical wildflower bouquets, mismatched bridesmaid dresses, hair wreaths, halo headbands, and folk music are just a few parts of a bohemian-style wedding theme.



wedding color palettes

If you crave color palettes and brilliantly paired hues, a color wedding theme is right for you!




Leaves on the ground, wedding boots, an apple cider bar, pumpkin-style place cards, and pumpkin spice donut dessert bar are just a few touches for a fall wedding.




Rooftop parties, succulent bouquets and unique venue options such as museums and art galleries are a few modern touches for the city-loving bride.


Off the cuff, non-conventional, quirky, eccentric ideas fall into an offbeat wedding. We love ’em… and you’ll love the ideas we’ve found!


also includes farmhouse / woodland / country

Barn weddings. Rustic weddings. Woodland weddings. All the branch-filled, boot-wearing, hay-bale-loving, mason-jar-sipping madness is all over these parts!


If your style is classic, elegant, and totally traditional, this is the theme for you.

Women's Dresses




This theme is chock-full of romantic details, from its lacy dresses to milk bottle decor, not to mention candles, gorgeous knockout roses and cabbage rose bouquets, and delightful table settings! Check out vintage wedding ideas.


Snow-filled nights, warm cozy fires, a help-yourself coffee bar, warm fur shrugs for the bride, delightful decor, and tasty hot cocoa treats are this way!
