Am I the only one who doesn't think that a wedding needs a theme? I mean, isn't the theme getting married? Now I guess our wedding has a theme in the sense that it's a woodsy winter wedding. But I feel like that came about really organically and not via any hard soul searching on our parts. I mean, we're getting married in the woods in February. Done.
But seriously. While I think some themes are lovely, I'm just not sure they're necessary. I do think that it's important to narrow down ideas so that your event has some cohesiveness, but the idea of tying everything down to a theme sometimes seems limiting to me. I think that's why I'm resistant whenever anyone asks me what our colors are. Yes, blue and green are the main colors that we're using, but I don't feel the need to focus everything on those two colors. Which is why I might be including burgundy pashminas. And why I want candlelight rather than perfectly coordinated flowers to be our centerpieces.
What's your take on themes? Do you think a wedding needs one? Or can the wedding itself be the theme?
