Want to surprise your chosen wedding guests with an out-of-the-box wedding theme?
Unique wedding themes are taking these events by storm nowadays. The reason being is everyone wants to have a unique memory with their loved ones and they also want to give their guests a ceremony and reception they won’t forget for a long time.
With fewer millennials getting married in recent times, the pressure is on to give your family and friends something worth looking forward to as your special day comes closer. Here are some unique wedding theme ideas to save you the trouble and pressure of coming up with one yourself.
1. Nature Trek Reception
Is your venue close to the lush countryside? If so, then what better wedding to have than a wedding that revolves around nature?
Instead of having your guests stuck inside a closed event hall or something similar, holding the ceremony outside allows them to get a breath of fresh air while celebrating your love. You can also have the reception set up a short walk away from where the ceremony is. A short walk will allow them to appreciate the beauty all around them.
2. Pop-Art Themed Wedding
You can also use popular art as a theme for your wedding. Nowadays, there is a lot of beautiful street art made by various artists like Banksy and the like. What’s great about them is they’re not copyrighted, so you can use them in any way you like.
You can use them as simple backgrounds or décor for the wedding. For the most part, they convey feelings of passion and love, perfect for your wedding day.
3. Pastel Colors
Pastel colors have a soothing and calming effect on whoever sees them. They also have a cooling effect on people, making them perfect for a summer wedding. In fact, people consider them to be the essence of such events.

4. Modern Minimalistic Style

6. Woven and Hand-Crafted Theme
Being an opposite to wedding reception themes with fine art, woven and hand-crafted décor doesn’t offer the glamor fine art does. However, that doesn’t mean it’s a tasteless theme to go for. In fact, these have a unique appeal of their own.
Woven and handmade décor means to have a connection with nature. These are great to mix nature and class together at your wedding.
