How to Choose Your Wedding Theme & Style

Are you in the early stages of planning your wedding and eagerly seeking Pinterest for the perfect color palette or theme? Whether you have a general idea already in mind or you are starting your research with a broad search, there are a few key ways to narrow your wedding day style.

Look for Inspiration Around You

Some of the best wedding designers out there today suggest exploring ideas beyond other weddings. You might be surprised to find a bit of inspiration from a movie, show, favorite place, time period or book. Pay more attention to other things, too, like advertisements, restaurants/bars, stores or hotels. Try to find something that speaks to you personally and catches your eye.

Keep Track of Your Ideas

As you start to explore your options, be sure you won’t lose track of them! Whether you keep notes in your wedding to-do list planner or book, create a photo album on your phone, or start pinning away ideas to your wedding Pinterest board, have a place where all your ideas come together so you can compare them side by side.

Consider Traditional Wedding Themes

Not looking for something too far out from what others have done before? Or want a style to begin with and adjust to be your own? Take a look at samples for weddings in the following themes to get you started: vintage, antique, rustic, urban, boho, tropical, dark and moody, earthy or elegant.

Take a Quiz

Still in doubt? Try the Knot’s “What Should Your Wedding Theme Be?” Quiz! Once you get the results, use this as a basis for fine-tuning your ideas.

Ask Yourself a Few Questions

No matter what your theme or style is, there are a few other factors you need to remember before you make the final decision. Be sure to ask yourself (or your soon-to-be spouse) the following questions to help guide you:

  • When you think about your big day, are you envisioning something outside or inside?
  • If you’ve been to other weddings before, which ones did you enjoy the most?
  • Where might you have your wedding celebration? Is your ideal venue nearby, in another city or in another state? What type of setting does it offer?

When in Doubt: Hire a Wedding Planner

Although the final decision of a specific color palette, theme and style should ultimately be your decision, hiring a wedding planner, coordinator or designer can significantly help you narrow your focus and stick to your theme.

Highly recommend Roots Floral Design - absolutely beautiful!

“Kaytee is an absolute GEM! She has so much passion and care for what she does, that you feel like she's a friend more than a vendor. She walks you through each step of the floral process with organization, examples, cost, and detail -- all things that make my detail-oriented heart happy. The end result far exceeded anything we could have hoped for or imagined. ALL. THE. GREENERY. Future brides, run, don't walk to Roots for your wedding. From start to finish, she took care of every single floral need to make our day positively beautiful.”

-Laura, Summer 2019 Wedding


"Kaytee became so much more than a vendor for us. The first time I met her I felt as though I met a long lost friend. She was the very first vendor I chose for the wedding (even before the venue) and she lived up to all my expectations and went above and beyond.  Each time I met with her I felt confident that she completely comprehended my wants and would fashion them into something that looks put together, yet natural. The day-of she silently transformed a bland rustic space into an enchanting, romantic barn. I couldn't have asked for anything more beautiful or unique."

-Grace, Spring 2019 Wedding


"Kaytee was so great to work with!!! I provided her with some floral inspirations from Pinterest and Instagram but gave her a lot of free rein coming up with the flowers for our wedding and she went above and beyond expectations. Our photographer was obsessed with all the bouquets and we got so many great pictures of them! She did such a good job making my smaller budget work to make high impact arrangements. She's also the sweetest person to be around!"
