BRIDAL ALERT: Here Are 2017’s Top Trending Wedding Themes!
With summer 2017 fast approaching and all of you lovebirds planning on tying the knot, here are a few of my favourite trending wedding themes to inspire your perfect day.
The Pastel Wedding Theme
Creating a playful, yet stylish atmosphere is no problem for this wedding theme. It takes you on a journey to a diverse and quirky place. In a way it maybe gives you too many options to choose from.
Be inspired (main picture) by your childhood memories of tangy sherbet flying saucers. Which one did you prefer, the soft minty greens, lemon meringue yellows, warming apricot tones, muted lavenders or dusty rose pinks?
Effortlessly match your save the date cards to the cake knife and even the bridesmaids dresses; it’s the perfect wedding theme to pick’n’mix from and allowing you to create a chalky yet sweet, sorbet pastel and light-hearted romantic space!
The Grecian Wedding Theme
If you are thinking rustic like the main picture, why not go one step further and refine it to transport you and your guests directly into the beautifully picturesque world that is ancient Greece! Become a Grecian Goddess with golds, neutrals, grey, whites and a few metallic tones topped of with carefully placed laurel leaves surrounded by olive trees.
A playful theme with a romantic touch, making it easy to perfect the even the tiniest of details simply by putting flower crowns in every bridesmaids hair, having laurel leaf prints on the menu and golden olives hanging from your table numbers.
The Grecian wedding theme truly is a wedding fit for the gods!
The Botanical Wedding Theme
Let’s get back to the roots and stay down to earth (#SorryNotSorry about the puns). Floral wedding themes have always been and always should be a big part of weddings, their delicate natural beauty effortlessly represents the poetic picture of love.
Keeping things contemporary, lush ferns teamed with eucalyptus and succulents will not only keep you on trend but automatically make the space feel fresh and springy no matter the season.
This wedding theme will really transform any venue into a seductive secret forest, and it can be easily achieved just by having flower garlands and twig arrangements hanging from the ceiling. A world to get lost in!
The Golden Wedding Theme
If all the above fail to cut the mustard, go all out with this bold wedding theme! Using a metallic colour like gold as a statement sets a strong, extroverted and memorable tone.
However, be careful and make sure to tone down on other colours to complement the gold, use simple yet classic ivory tones which will allow small, elegant, personal touches like your bridesmaids and groomsmen accessories to really shimmer.
Sprinkling a light dust of gold over the tables and each dinner plate, evokes that extra touch of luxury to the delicious meal your guests can’t wait to enjoy.
Lastly, for that perfect romantic feel, just imagine hundreds of long tapered ivory candles, reflecting off of all those golden tones…if that is not decadent glamour, I don’t know what is!
Oi! Stop Breaking Your Own Damn Heart!
Stop telling yourself you’re not good enough. Stop thinking you’re less. Stop walking around with your head to the ground, picking at every flaw, focusing on every deficiency, making a list of wrongs just to tape it to your chest and label yourself as unworthy.

Does Productivity Have a Set Time and Place?

My Open Letter to a Friend Who Needs to Realise Their Self-Worth
We’ve been taught to cover up the ugly parts, mask the pain, and respond with routine answers of “Things are good,” and “I’m fine,” whenever someone asks how we are. We keep silent about too many things, at the risk of misinterpretation or judgment for the irrational fears and self-doubt we all share.
