Mint green is the latest color trend in weddings at the moment, with bride's maid's dresses being made of chiffon and other soft, flowing fabrics. Cakes are being made mint green and lots of other retro elements, which add a very 1930's feel to the entire wedding. For a more contemporary feel, bride's are even choosing to go for a pale mint green dress, or just a mint green sash. With mint, you can go for the more modern looking designed which can be fitted and have larger skirts, or you can stick to a plain, simple, slim cut dress.


This is one of the top wedding theme ideas that everyone is going for nowadays, with gold or orange hues being used as accent colors. Often the mint green dresses look amazing with peach colored flowers. What's great about this color is that it is soft and romantic, yet also masculine enough for the groom and groomsmen to wear. Grey suits are often paired with a mint green shirt or white shirt with mint green tie.

Vintage is Back!

Vintage is definitely in at the moment in terms of wedding theme ideas, with exquisite wedding gown designs epitomizing the era of the 30's and 40's, with hints of the 20's as well. This is all thanks to new movies like The Great Gatsby and other trends. Vintage means lots of lace and beadwork, straight flowing dresses with billowing lace or chiffon sleeves, low waist lines, and plenty of fringes. The runways at the moment are showing very intricate designs, with elegant lines and pretty cuts. Some offer some interesting additions such as sheer neck and shoulder coverings, sheer and lace backs, and lace capped sleeves.

For wedding theme ideas, going for a relaxed country garden weddings lends itself perfectly to a vintage dress and vintage styling. You could even go for a full on 30's theme where the guests can also dress up. Vintage can also work in a hotel that is designed in the style of that era. Accessories for vintage weddings will include the long, traditional veils, and well as cloche veils, which are very Great Gatsby-esque. Beaded headbands, and lace with netting worn over the face are also popular and can add a hint of glamorous drama.

Rainbow Modern Wedding Theme Ideas


Another interesting wedding theme for this year is that of rainbow colors. Gone are the days of picking a single wedding theme color or perhaps 2. Nowadays brides are opting for every color under the sun. Traditionally bride's maids all wore the same color or perhaps alternating colors, but in 2013 it is perfectly en vogue for the bride to stand out in a white, sleek, modern satin gown, and each bride's maid to wear a different color dress, sticking to bold colors of the rainbow. This makes the theme slightly easier to assemble as you don't have to be overly concerned with matching everything perfectly. You can choose a combination of any flowers you love, decorate with anything you like.

So, there you have it! Three brilliant wedding theme ideas that will give you great décor and wedding dress ideas!
