Your wedding day is a reflection of both you and your partner, and the type of decor you decide on can make a big difference to the overall atmosphere throughout the day.

For our latest post, we take a look at various wedding themes to provide inspiration for your own big day.


The vintage style has made a huge comeback in the last few years and brings with it an air of romance – a perfect atmosphere for any wedding.

The mixture of soft colours and quirky accents combine an air of traditional elegance with a sense of fun and frivolity.

You can work a vintage vibe into your big day through a variety of aspects, including everything from your dress to the table centrepieces and props.

Why not use old suitcases in your reception venue which your guests can fill up with notes for you to read after the big day? Alternatively, you may fill them with items for your guests to use – flip flops are cheap to buy and are a welcome sight to guests dancing the night away. Polaroid cameras are also great to leave out for your guests to use, giving them a perfect memento of the day. It’s these little touches that can make a big difference and perfectly capture the essence of a romantic vintage wedding.

Other ideas include investing in an old typewriter that allows your guests to type out notes to you and your partner that you can later frame. You may decide to add a flower wall, fairy lights and candles on each table to complete the decor.


Modern decor can make a great impact at your wedding. Why not opt for sleek modern chairs and a monochrome appearance? Alternatively, add splashes of bold colours throughout your venue; the striking aesthetics will be sure to make a great backdrop for photographs and you can use these colours throughout things such as your table centerpieces and favours to tie everything together for a uniform appearance.

For the modern wedding, think greenery, glass and minimal design, against bold colours and statement features.


If you’re the type to deviate from the norm, give a firm shake of the head to tradition and run with your own vibe. Think earthy, moody colours, quirky lighting that creates interesting shapes across the room and a statement feature such as a large art wall or stand-out lighting feature. To go a step further you may want to hold your wedding in an unusual venue, maybe a boat, a museum or your favourite outside spot.
