So much planning goes into your wedding, and for many brides, the visions they have come together easily with a theme.  But how important is a wedding theme?  Do you want your guests to walk into a winter wonderland, or are you more of a Halloween scream fest couple?

Whether or not you have a theme, you can still have a perfect wedding.  For some people, however, coordinating everything under one umbrella makes it easier to choose things like colors for flowers and bridesmaids, favors, centerpieces, even invitations.  When everything has to “go together”, it can back you into selections based solely on the theme you’ve chosen.  If fall is your theme, you are probably not going to have neon pink gerber daisies in your bouquets.  If you want a literary theme, you can opt for a pile of vintage books as your centerpieces.  It can be easier to wade through the thousands of wedding invitation options if you can hone in on just one type – nautical themed, Disney themed (you knew I was working that in here somewhere), puppy themed, or even just themed around your favorite color.

At the end of the day, however, having a theme isn’t crucial.  It allows you to go with what you love.  If neon pink gerber daisies are your signature flower, use them liberally – even if it is October.  Create your wedding around things you think are beautiful, even if they don’t necessarily go with each other.
