Wedding Theme Ideas To Consider

When it comes to planning your big day, it’s hard to know where to start. From bridesmaid dresses, to hiring bar staff, finding a place to start can be really overwhelming.

Choosing a wedding theme is a fantastic place to start. Once you have chosen a wedding theme, aspects such as decor, entertainment and venue will be inevitably easier to plan.

Read on for some wedding theme ideas that may be perfect for your big day…

Vintage Wedding Theme

A vintage wedding theme is fantastic for anyone who wants a classic wedding, with a quirky, feminine edge.

Antique decorations, lace and an abundance of red roses are key elements of the vintage wedding theme.

Vintage themed weddings can range from Marie Antoinette inspired opulence, to art deco influences taken from the 1920s.

Venue Ideas

If you have chosen a vintage wedding theme, opt for a venue that isn’t too modern or brand new.

Fantastic venue ideas include:

  • Old manors/ country homes
  • Ballrooms
  • Old hotels
  • Rustic barns
  • Marques in forests/country settings
  • Garden party

Dress Ideas

If you have a certain era in mind, choose a dress that reflects that! If you are just aiming for a romantic vintage theme, opt for classic necklines and an abundance of lace.

Don’t forget: your perfect dress may be found in a vintage shop, vintage fair or charity shop!

Bohemian Wedding Theme

If you’ve dreamed of saying your vows barefoot or feel at one with nature, a bohemian themed wedding is perfect for you!

A bohemian wedding is a fantastic option for any bride hoping to have a less formal celebration.

Venue Ideas

Bohemian weddings are well suited for areas outdoor in nature. Fantastic venue ideas include:

  • Beach
  • Parks
  • Forests
  • Farmhouses
  • Tropical jungles
  • Islands

Dress Ideas

Shorter dresses are a fantastic option for bohemian weddings. However, long flowing dresses are also made for brides who wish to wear flowers in their hair.

The general rule of thumb is: keep is dreamy, flowy and un-fitted.

Decor

One word: greenery! Flowers and nature are a vital part of nailing bohemian wedding decor.

A rainbow of color is welcome. However, demure and minimal palettes can look just as stunning too. The general rule of thumb is to keep it textured and detailed.

Ethnic Wedding Theme

Whether you are planning a multicultural wedding, or just want to add an air of the exotic, an ethnic wedding theme is a fantastic way to make your big day stand apart from the rest!

Exotic, bright hues, rich fabrics and strong lighting are central elements of this theme.

Venue Ideas

When it comes to Indian-themed, or ethnic weddings, it’s all about how you decorate the venue! Despite this, the following venue ideas may lend themselves quite well to the theme:

  • Hotel
  • Ballroom
  • Manor
  • Castles
  • Convention centers/ function rooms

Dress Ideas

Two piece dresses are popular for ethnic or Indian themed weddings.

If you wish to go for the classic white dress, add an air of the exotic with hand-beaded details or pops of color.

10 Ways To Makeover An Old Table

An old table is a little bit like an abandoned house: the foundations are there, it has potential use, but it looks a little worse for wear.

Tables have been around since the Ancient Chinese times, and were even used by our Ancient Greek and Roman predecessors. However, as useful as tables may be, buying a new, good quality table could set you back a lot of money! Bet Caesar didn’t fork out an arm and a leg for his tables!

Rather than spending your precious earnings, why not makeover your old table?

Whether it’s your kitchen table that needs sprucing up, or your bedside table is looking like Shrek with a hangover, it’s time to get your DIY game on!

Here’s 10 ways to makeover an old table

1. Rustic Dining Table

A kitchen table is undoubtedly the most necessary table in any modern household. Nothing is more off-putting than eating your gourmet salad on a cracked and rusty old table. It’s time to change that…

How cute is this rustic, farm house style, dining set? It’s hard to believe that it began life as a beat-up, faded, black set.

Although this makeover may look like it needs a professional, all it takes is paint and wooden boards. Yep: you don’t even need to sand back the black paint!

2. Put A Runner On It

red-white-marble-boho-table-layout

Lazy decor lovers: You’ll be glad to know that transforming your old table doesn’t necessarily have to take 20 hours. As a matter of fact, it can take 10 mins.

If your table is scratched, simply add a printed runner to cover up any worn or market areas. Dot your runner with greenery for a statement and on-trend dining table. We think that our damask style table runner adds a cute, retro vibe to this old table.

Check out more on-trend table layouts with runners here.

3. Stencil It

If you love your wooden table, but it isn’t exactly on trend, why not give it a bit of oomph with a stenciled design?

To ensure that your wood base is clean and tidy, sand back the woods service, stencil on your design with paint and then seal with polish.

See the full tutorial here.

5. The Magic Of Mosaic

This mosaic patio table looks like it has been transported straight from a Mediterranean resort. Nope: it actually started off life as a cheap, plastic nobody.

Mosaic is a great way to completely transform a small patio or bedside table. Craftier folk can break up tiles and create unique designs. However, if this sounds too complicated, mosaic pieces, grout and glue will do the trick!

6. Upholster It

Rather than shopping for a coffee table to match your new sofas, buy matching fabric and upholster your existing one!

Check out this tutorial on how to upholster a table.

7. Gold Chevron

Now this is DIY at it’s best! We recommend that you read the full tutorial, but all it took was masking tape and spray paint (yes, really!)

This gold chevron print is a big fat tick for so many of the latest home decor trends.

8. Poster Table
