Inspiration for a Themed Wedding

Inspiration for a Themed Wedding

Some Themed wedding ideas from Fairytale Bride

A themed wedding is as popular as ever and very on trend! What’s old is now new again with a wedding that captures the all the glitz and glamour of the ‘20’s, the rock ‘n’ roll energy of the 50’s, or the Hippie, free-spirited vibe of the ‘70’s. Here are a few ideas to help you decide on a themed wedding.

Roaring 20’s

If it’s the roaring 20’s you’re after, then a Gatsby inspired gown like this will certainly ‘wow’ them as you walk down the aisle! This very glamourous wedding dress has a flattering slim silhouette with a sheer neckline and is encrusted with vintage style crystals. You will feel like you have just walked out of a scene from ‘Downton Abbey’.

Vintage Glamour

A wedding dress in lace with beautiful beading exudes vintage glamour. Here is a perfect example by True Bride W225, the fit and flare wedding gown ticks all the boxes for a vintage wedding. The blouson style bodice is made with delicate tulle with pearls and beading on the sleeves. So feminine.

Vintage Car

To bring the whole vintage theme together, you could arrive at your venue in this Gatsby-esque wedding car. It would guarantee a jaw dropping arrival as you step out of the car.

Say it with flowers

For the bride wearing a vintage wedding dress will need a beautiful bouquet to match. A bouquet of classic roses and peonies is a must. For a truly romantic feel add the cascading greenery. Using ivory, dusky pink roses and the trailing greenery is sure to give the bouquet sophisticated glamour.


Fake It!

Many brides prefer to have fabric flowers instead. By doing this, you can keep your bouquet for ever and every time you look at it, the memories of your beautiful wedding day stay fresh. If you have decided to keep your bouquet try to remember not to throw it after the ceremony! If you want to make your bouquet more personal, try adding pearls, antique brooches and lace. It will definitely look the part.

50’s style wedding

Are you a vintage bride who loves a ‘50’s themed wedding?  Try a sassy tea length wedding dress. A cute wedding dress by True Bride W236, features a pretty beaded lace appliqued onto a 1950’s inspired polka dot tulle and also has a statement keyhole ’heart’ back.

Or the stylish tea length wedding dress also by True Bride W235 which will ‘wow’ the dancefloor with its full 50’s style skirt and lace sleeves.

The Boho style

A very popular theme is a boho wedding  and the trend isn’t going anywhere! Styling for this theme, combines elements of nature, romanticism and individuality. Also known as boho-chic, the bride can embrace the theme from everything from, floaty dresses, to flower crowns or subtly by selecting simply touches here and there with flowers and candles.

Boho Wedding Dress

The Boho chic ultra-trending wedding dress below, Burghley by Nicola Anne, gives the floaty appearance that all brides love about the boho styling.  A gorgeous strapless blush pink design with a delicate lace top. The soft chiffon gathers at the waist and is finished with feminine flowers for extra detail.

What about this stunning wedding dress? Blenheim by Nicola Anne is a V neckline and a low back in soft mocha satin, bringing in the earthy tones for the Boho style wedding. Again this wedding dress is a light and comfortable dress to wear for a laid back and care-free Boho themed wedding day.

Boho and Flowers

Flowers play a big part in the Boho theme. You can decorate the tables with vibrate coloured flowers in vases, or have them trailing across the table.  A beautiful flower crown is perfect for that ‘Boho’ look. They are a beautiful addition to any wedding, but our Boho brides just love them. Flower crowns can be worn by the bridesmaids and flower girls too. They can be small and delicate or huge with big flowers. They can be one colour of a mixture of colours.

They can tie in with the bride’s bouquet and table decorations, or you can add in your own style …. The possibilities are endless.

Whichever theme you choose, just remember, planning a wedding should be fun and enjoyable for all concerned. When you find a theme you really like, the ideas will flow and once you’ve put them all together, I’m sure your wedding day will be fantastic!
