Who Wants Their Wedding Theme To Be “Tacky”?
Whoa. I’ve heard of theme parties, but never theme weddings. Our girl Erin, who’s an Editor over at Shine, posted about the increasing popularity of theme weddings and equated the trend with the prevalence of bad tattoos. But one particular link within her story caught our eye: WedThemes.com. The site has literally hundreds of tickety-tackety wedding theme ideas, from “your favorite creatures such as dolphins, doves, butterflies and other insects, birds, and fish”, to “sorcery and enchantment await your guests when they witness the wedding magic of your wizard’s wedding.” So that got me thinking about what my dream theme wedding would be, were I the type of person who would invest time and money into such a thing. Catherine said, “I would totally do a ’30s or ’40s theme wedding — not a flapper wedding, like from the ’20s, but something very retro. Or, because I have Scottish-blood, maybe I would do a Scottish wedding and wear my family tartan as my wedding dress. Can I do that? I don’t think that white is really a good color for me.” As for me, I think I would do something extraordinarily over the top, like a Marie Antoinette-themed wedding, with powdered wigs and bustles and little mini cakes.
