Wedding theme? Concept and Planning


Every wedding is a unique love story, and what makes it special is the choice of the wedding theme. In recent years, themed weddings have gained popularity among grooms seeking creativity and originality, basing their big day on a specific theme that influences the style and color palette. The possibilities are endless when it comes to creating a custom theme for your wedding.

If you’re looking for guidance on how to start planning your wedding theme, I’ll walk you through the basic steps.


Be authentic Start by imagining your wedding and ask yourself some questions: what atmosphere do you want to create? What emotions do you want to convey? The theme you choose should reflect your personality and love story. A delicate soul might opt ​​for a romantic theme linked to literature or music, or that tells their love story. Conversely, a strong and exuberant personality might prefer a theme that reflects their passion, interests or origins. If the bride’s personality is different from that of the groom, the key is to find a compromise that represents both, because love is also this: uniting differences.


Moodboard and Palette  


After defining the theme, create a mood board. This collage of inspirational images will help you visualize and plan every aspect of your theme, from color choices to overall wedding style, from wedding stationery to setup.


The Color Palette


The choice of color palette should be in harmony with the location and season of the wedding. It is therefore advisable to decide where and when to get married before defining the palette. For example, weddings in historic settings might call for warm colors or pastel tones, while nature weddings might suit cool colors or rich tones.


The Moodboard


The mood board will give you a clear idea of ​​how to design the entire setup and will help you identify the suppliers you will need. Select the suppliers who are closest to the style of the images that inspire you and share your mood board with them. This way, you will obtain detailed quotes and have a solid basis for developing a coherent project with your suppliers.

After the moodboard, move on to a real large-scale graphic project to visualize what your wedding setup will look like. If you have graphic skills, you can try your hand at creating this project yourself, otherwise you might consider getting help from a professional.

Personally, I recommend using a Wedding Planner & Designer, who will start from the mood board and then create a detailed design of every aspect of the wedding: from the nave of the church to the arrangement of the tables, from the dessert table to the cake. Every detail must be carefully designed.


Details that Make the Difference 


To add a touch of originality, you can personalize your wedding theme through decorative details. These elements, such as handcrafted products, custom-made items or paper work, will help give a unique identity to your wedding. You can personalize the wedding rings, guest bags, place cards, tableau and wedding favors.

Details are essential and their choice should reflect the degree of formality and style of the wedding. An informal beach wedding will require few decorative elements, while a wedding in a historic castle will require meticulous attention to detail, such as high-quality materials for the decoration.

If you can’t find a theme you like, don’t worry. You can always opt for a trendy style that suits your personality, making sure to match the colors to the setting and season of the wedding.


Choosing a wedding theme is an opportunity to express your individuality and create an unforgettable wedding that reflects your unique love story. Be true to yourself and enjoy every moment of planning.
