While a cliche wedding offers you stunning chicness and a traditional essence, it’s not always for everyone. Luckily, by using a theme to add unique touches, colour and entertainment, you can create a memorable wedding that epitomises your style and character.

From rustic and bohemian, festival-style outdoor weddings to stylishly colour-coordinated themes, there are many ways to make your wedding stand out from the crowd. To give you some inspiration, we have pieced together a selection of wedding theme ideas to help you start planning your dream wedding.

Creative, Quirky And Unique Wedding Theme Ideas

If you are looking for a quirky wedding, you have come to the right place! We love being able to create unique and wonderful events for our clients, which is why we offer a wide selection of unique entertainment. From our photo booth hire in London to our tantalisingly tasty chocolate fountains and candy floss machines, there are so many ways we can bring a unique element to your big day.

To start planning your wedding, it is always best to begin with the theme; this will help you find the ideal location and start piecing together your decorations for the perfect day. However, if you’re not a big fan of the traditional crystal white wedding, it can be hard to think of a theme that will be just as, if not more, memorable. So, to begin the journey to the perfect wedding, click on the links below to jump straight to the inspiration you need:

1. Rustic Wedding Theme

A rustic wedding theme is where you combine traditional elements with boho-chic to create a tea party vibe with a twist. This theme utilises neutral colours such as cream and beige, which can make it exceptionally easy for you to find the perfect decorations to match the theme. Hanging up fabric bunting and fairy lights is a great way to create a soft and elegant fairy tale aesthetic. Wooden features are also prominent in rustic weddings, so opting for wooden tables and chairs is a great way to bring your theme a natural palette.

Another key element to consider is that rustic themes tend to take inspiration from untamed countrysides, meaning that it may be best to consider an outdoor wedding in the summer. For outdoor weddings, we recommend choosing a barn to add to the natural tones and wooden features. For more inspiration on locations, Hitched has a great article on the best wedding venues for rustic themes.

2. Vintage Wedding Theme

If you love the idea of a rustic wedding but also enjoy the traditional elements of a classic theme, then choosing a vintage wedding theme is the perfect option. You can combine the muted and off-white aesthetic of a rustic wedding while enjoying the chic flowers and classic wedding veils. Surprisingly, it is fairly easy to create a vintage wedding theme, and by using soft pink, cream, beige and a hint of crystal white with an abundance of detail, you can design a wedding that takes you back in time while maintaining a touch of modern flair.

From the lace wedding dress to the stunning calligraphy on your invitations, there are many ways in which you can create a breathtaking vintage-themed wedding. Take a look at this Brides article for some more hints and tips on how to design a vintage aesthetic for your wedding.

3. Rose Gold Wedding Theme

A popular colour that has certainly come into fashion over the past couple of years is rose gold. This is an excellent way to bring a modern touch to any wedding theme, whether you opt for a traditional or rustic wedding. To create a rose gold wedding theme, you do not have to go all out and have every element of your wedding painted in gold. Instead, select delicate pieces and integrate rose gold in a thoughtful way. For example, rose gold cutlery, rose gold napkin rings and even a touch of rose gold on your wedding cake!

Hobbycraft is a great place to start for some rose gold wedding decorations. From rose gold balloon arches and bunting to rose gold table numbers, wedding planners and a quirky globe guest book, you can find a wide selection of ideas simply by scrolling through their online store.

4. Black and Gold Wedding Theme

If you can’t decide on just one colour for your wedding theme, why not choose two? A black and gold theme is the perfect option if you are looking to create a visually stunning aesthetic that stands out: while black is dark, dramatic and moody, gold is bright and cheerful. The contrast you will create with these two colours will look absolutely stunning! We would suggest using black as your main colour and gold as an accent colour for the best effect. For example, a black wedding cake decorated with gold ribbons and black napkins holding gold cutlery.

If you wish to add a hint of black to your wedding without making it the main feature, then Wedding Wire has a fantastic article on how to bring some black elements into your decor.

5. Pastel Colour Wedding Theme

A pastel colour wedding theme will not only look stunning, but you will also find it to be incredibly versatile. From the bridesmaids’ dresses to your floral arrangements to your cake, all elements of your wedding will look gorgeous in pastel purples, pinks, blues, greens, yellows and oranges. Best of all, these colours work beautifully alongside each other, as well as the traditional crystal wedding white. Take a look at Pinterest for some gorgeous pastel wedding inspiration!

By choosing a pastel colour wedding theme, you can guarantee that your wedding photos will be absolutely stunning. In order to maximise photo opportunities both for you and your partner and your beloved guests in their pastel get-ups, why not hire a photobooth in London? With our bespoke hire package, you can even have a booth customised with pastel colours to beautifully match your wedding aesthetic. What better way to provide your guests with unique entertainment, as well as fun photo keepsakes that they can treasure for years to come?

6. Autumn Theme Wedding

For those that love brightly coloured leaves, warm spiced drinks and pumpkin-everything, an Autumn theme wedding is perfect for you. Naturally, you’ll want to make the event outdoor so that the gorgeous scenery of orange and red leaves decorating the trees and the ground provides a stunning backdrop for your celebration. You could consider serving hot spiced drinks to guests to help them keep warm during the ceremony, should you be concerned about chilly weather.

In terms of decor, use nature as your inspiration! Pinecones, pumpkins and apples, as well as any other seasonal greenery, flowers, or produce, are the perfect things to use in decorative arrangements throughout your venue. Not only are these perfectly on theme and affordable, but they can also be offered to guests to take home as wedding favours. This is an ideal option for those looking to host a sustainable wedding, since you will minimise waste by ensuring that your decorations are not only seasonal and compostable but can be used after your wedding, either as home decor or in a homecooked meal.

7. Festival Themed Wedding

If you and your partner are huge festival lovers, why not opt for a festival-themed wedding? This way, you can enjoy that incredible, stylish boho aesthetic on your big day, alongside all of your favourite music.

In order to pull off this theme, you will, of course, need to hire a DJ and select a venue with plenty of outdoor space. We suggest setting up marquees and plenty of fairy lights to emulate that magical festival aesthetic, along with some wood elements to incorporate a soothing touch of nature into your theme.

Our previous article will provide you with plenty of festival-themed party ideas, which will come in handy when planning your wedding party, should you choose to go with the festival theme.

8. 1920s Themed Wedding

If you’re totally obsessed with the 1920s aesthetic, why not go all out with your wedding theme and replicate the style of this decade at your celebration? Guests will have endless fun putting together a 1920s-inspired outfit and will be left with a completely unique and memorable impression of your wedding. From feathered headpieces to glistening beaded necklaces, you can be sure that your wedding photos will be filled with stunning outfits and stand out from the typical and cliche wedding shots we’ve all seen before.

As for 1920s-inspired decor, bold, geometric patterns and ornate furnishings will help you to achieve your desired aesthetic. If you’re looking for the perfect venue to accommodate this, why not check out Verdict’s list of the best speakeasy bars in the UK? These types of bars were a popular place to socialise in the 1920s, making them the perfect place to consider renting for your period wedding.

9. Christmas Themed Wedding

What better way to add a twist to your white winter wedding than by incorporating a Christmas theme? Get your guests in the holiday spirit with bright, twinkling lights, Christmas trees adorned with sparkling decorations, and mistletoe arrangements, which are naturally right on theme for a wedding! You may choose to keep your colour scheme simple and predominantly white, but you could also incorporate elements of red, such as candles, napkins, and floral arrangements, to add warmth to the aesthetic.

To make your big day one to remember, why not hire a graffiti wall in London? Our digital, interactive graffiti walls can be decorated by guests to pose in front of for photos, which can then be shared on social media. Our bespoke package offers the option for guests to have their masterpieces printed onto mugs, t-shirts and more, leaving them with a keepsake to remind them of your wedding for many years. If you are interested in entertaining your guests in this way at your wedding, be it Christmas-themed or otherwise, please feel free to get in touch with our friendly team.
