A theme sets the tone for your wedding. Everything from your dress, to the décor, to the invitations need to match the theme you are trying to achieve. Wedding themes come and go, and every bride wants her wedding day to be on trend--and her wedding photos to look timeless. Some of the popular wedding themes for 2015 have been around for a few years, and other themes are brand new. Try some of these old, but trusty ideas or a new theme for a wedding that will impress your guests! To make your wedding plans easier, I even have some great wedding venues to match some of your wedding themes!
Rustic weddings have been around for several years now--but they are still very much on trend. Lace wedding gowns, burlap, DIY décor , and baby’s breath will definitely be seen with the rustic wedding theme. Pick a cozy barn or farm venue to match your theme. Rustic weddings will be a popular theme throughout many years to come. Perhaps it is because of the uniqueness, DIY designs, and charm that a rustic wedding has to offer a bride.
If you’re looking for a barn wedding to fit your rustic theme, make sure to check out Applewood Farm, formerly known as Sweet Apple Farm. Click*here*to read about my previous post on the gorgeous venue, Applewood Farm.
Bohemian weddings are so glamorous and different! Designers are bringing the bohemian glam to a whole new level! Think ruffles, lace, florals and a whole lot of glam to pull this theme off! This free-spirited wedding theme would go great with an outdoor wedding with a casual and relaxed feel! Try using a floral headpiece instead of a veil to really make your boho-chic flair shine.
Ahh, vintage! I love vintage! Vintage covers so many eras from the roaring 1920’s to the flower-power, hippy 1970’s. Many people choose their vintage themes around popular movies and books. There are so many ways you can incorporate your vintage style into your wedding. Pick the era you love, and stay true to it’s style. The best part of a vintage wedding is that you can use décor you find at thrift stores, flea markets, and antique stores that you can buy fairly cheap! Budget friendly--yet elegant! Now that is a beautiful theme in itself! Be sure to incorporate lace and jewels for an elegant vintage wedding.
If you’re planning a vintage wedding, check out the beautiful Historic Rucker Place. Historic Rucker Place was built in 1900 by a Civil War veteran, which he gave as a wedding gift to his daughter. Bring a little history to your wedding venue, as this may be the only shingle-style architectural style house ever built in Birmingham! Historic Rucker Place is a magnificent gem located in the heart of Five Points South.
Garden weddings make me think about spring and summer weddings. Think about large, vibrant, gorgeous flowers and greenery for this theme. Throw in some eco-friendly décor and accents and you’ve created a beautiful garden wedding!

Do you like to travel? Then this new trend may be the perfect theme for you! More couples that love to travel are planning destination weddings, and having a celebration reception when they return. In fact, we have booked several brides for their celebration receptions, and we loved hearing about their plans for destination weddings! If you have a love to travel, and still want a wedding with all of your friends and family you could incorporate travel into your wedding plans. Think about incorporating vintage maps with places you have traveled together with pictures, passports, a globe for your wedding guest book, vintage postcards, and old suitcases with travel tags. To make your travel wedding even better, you could serve exotic foods from other countries!
Choose a theme that reflects your style, and try to pick décor items that you can later use in your home for decorations. Stick to your personality, and your theme will follow--you want your guests to think that your wedding theme fit your personality.
