How to Choose a Wedding Theme

 Wedding Theme

Wedding Theme Photos

The first thing to know about selecting a theme for your wedding is that you don’t have to. Many brides are happy to simply decide on a general color palette and then base their decisions about wedding floral arrangements, reception table settings, wedding invitations, and all of the other details on their preferred color scheme.  At our NJ wedding venue, we found this can make choices both easier and more difficult.  The range of options available to you makes it simpler to get what you want and at a cost that is more reasonable, but at the same time, an endless amount of choices can make it difficult to narrow down what you want and keep a cohesive design together. 

When considering a wedding theme, many brides simply start with a basic seasonal concept and go from there–whether it’s a spring wedding theme, summer wedding theme, fall wedding theme, or winter wedding theme. From there we’ve seen brides narrow it even further.  For example, if it’s a spring wedding, they may choose to base their theme on cherry blossoms, incorporating actual cherry blossom branches into their centerpieces, taking wedding photographs with cherry trees as a backdrop, and working with the pink and white cherry blossom colors and images as part of their wedding décor, invitations, wedding favors, wedding cake, and so on.  You can almost picture exactly what the execution of this theme would look like.  Within a seasonal wedding theme, the options are many — from a summer picnic theme to a winter wonderland, and so much more.  Read more…

Wedding band

Wedding entertainment

Music is such an important part of your wedding day, from the first notes of your processional song to the song you choose for your First Dance to the music that keeps your dance floor filled all night long. The big question for you is: do you want a live band or a deejay as the entertainment at your wedding?

It all depends on the style of entertainment you prefer, which many of our wedding couples say they decide during other weddings they’ve attended. If they have been guests at a wedding that had an energetic, talented live band, they may decide that a live band is the style of entertainment for them. If they’ve experienced the hip, clublike energy of a great deejay, they may choose that style of entertainer to fill their wedding venue with fabulous music that sets the tone for each stage of their wedding celebration.
