Did you ever go to a fraternity party where the theme was something like Golf Pros and Tennis Gals* (*that not quite appropriate word for women)? CEOs and secretaries? Romans and Goddesses?
Sometimes, I feel like a wedding is just a big theme party. In all of my online puttering about, I’ve seen some fabulous and some not so fabulous themes.
Some themes are all out:
I was thinking of one in particular where the theme was Victorian magicians - there were parlour tricks, and everything was beautifully dark and twisty and elegant - all at the same time! I thought I had seen it on Once Wed or Snippet & Ink, but now I can't find it. Anyone remember this one and can refresh our memories?
Some themes are gorgeously subtle:
Deciding on my theme was difficult. Before we were engaged, I was telling the future Mr. Palindrome that it would be so fun to have a football theme wedding, with my beloved Redskins and his beloved Giants taking each other head on in a story that ends in romance. I pictured it all!
The Redskins Garter:
The football helmet Groom’s cake:
Table number Jerseys of our favorite players:
We could even have the reception during a big game!
Mr. Palindrome thought this was the cheesiest idea I’ve ever had.
In the end, I’m happy with the subtle Victorian verging on Deco vintage theme that I chose. But if anyone has a football theme wedding, will you invite me?
