Choosing Your Wedding Theme: Let Your Love Story Shine
Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!
Now comes the fun part – deciding on the theme for your wedding.
Your wedding theme is a chance to express your unique love story and passions. It can be subtle or extravagant as long as it reflects both of you and creates a memorable experience for your guests.
Finding Common Ground
The key is to ensure both of you are on the same page. Harmony is essential – it won't work if one of you envisions a steampunk extravaganza while the other dreams of a casual beach-themed affair.
So, sit down, discuss your ideas, and find a theme that resonates with your shared vision.

Thinking of Unique Venues
Don't limit yourself to traditional venues. Consider unique locations like a car racing track, where you can make special memories. Its all about bringing your love story to life, being in a space or surrounded with elements which are important to you.
In 2018, I married Tim and Anneke at the International Levels Raceway in Timaru, New Zealand. Tim is a seasoned race car driver and they spend many weekends there, it was perfect for them.
Consider Your Guests
When choosing a theme, think about your guests.
For guests travelling, consider whether they'll have room in their suitcases for dress-up items.
Remember, It's Your Day - Your Way
Ultimately, it's your special day and should reflect your personality and love story. So, don't be afraid to get creative, make it unique, and most importantly, make it yours!
