16 Wedding Themes That Are Hot Right Now

Make your wedding planning a dream with one of these exciting and trendy wedding themes. From familiar concepts such as rustic and wood land to new themes like Boho and wanderlust, there is a style to tease every bride’s taste buds.

Wild West

One of the biggest theme this year is inspired by a lot of leather accents and ranches. Details such as distressed lounges, antler motifs, wildflower bouquets, and cowhide rugs set a fun wild west scene. To contrast the romantic and soft details of the wedding, mix leather accents into the decor. In the reception, serve bourbon cocktails or craft beers in copper mugs.


Beach themes never go out of style and it’s always a nice concept for summer weddings. Even if you can’t have the wedding close to the sea, you can always add a touch of beach vibe to the occasion.

Boho Chic

Have a totally casual and laid-back wedding by incorporating a boho music festival-inspired theme to your celebration. An open-field or large backyard setting would be ideal, complete with picnic-style reception, outdoor cocktail lounges, and striped tepees. Keep the color pallet festive yet earthy like terracotta paired with teal and yellow and drive it home by infusing handwritten and hand-crafted elements into the theme and decor.

Wedding Royal

Royal-themed weddings are all the rage right now. Set the tone of your wedding with the sophisticated Marsala. It is a rich wine red hue that is both versatile and stylish. Have tables adorn with Marsala peonies or dahlias in tall cylinder vases set on top of dusty blue linens or table runners. Pairing Marsala with rose gold would also look as stunning.

Going Green

Want a really unique decor on your wedding? Let your eco-friendliness show in the affair. Play with plants and herbs and come up with bean-framed menus, lemon leaves decorated chairs, and more fancy decor. Rosemary and mint can be beautiful decorations, too.

Relive the '90s

Let the music and fashion trends of the 90’s influence your wedding. This means tons of hip hop music, crop tops dresses, and temporary tattoos. But do not get too carried away. Just incorporate it into the decor, clothing, and ambiance in small doses to keep the affair glamorously classy.

Up, Up and Away

Take guests on a whimsical journey to your nuptials by creating hot air balloon inspired invites, decor, backdrops, food, and favors. Make fun hot air balloon flower centerpieces and place them overhead. For a twist, attach small woven baskets on kissing balls using string or floral wire to create a playful yet stunning decor that you can hang at the reception.


With so many new rustic-inspired ideas circulating the web, this theme will surely be around for quite some time. Rustic weddings have a cool, casual charm which makes this theme an easy and effortless go-to concept for weddings.


The woodland wedding theme looks rustic but with touches of sophistication and glam. Branchy and green centerpieces with lush blooms and a pop of sparkle would be a perfect table decor for weddings like this. For the reception, have a tent lit with hanging twinkling lights. You can even incorporate an animal motif to the affair. Have it printed on the invites, ceremony programs, food and drink labels, and even escort cards.

Character-themed Wedding

Are you such Star Wars or Marvel Superheroes fans? Let the geek in you come out with a character-themed wedding. If you and your man are into graphic novels, have a superhero-themed cake, or have a marvel motif printed on invites, program cards, and more. Be creative and just think outside the box!


Vintage took a step back last year, but not this time. For an incredible vintage theme wedding, decorate the tables with vintage finds like frames, candles, leather boxes or old hardbound books. Purchase them at local thrift shops for a less costly alternative.

Shabby Chic

Who says everything must look the same or be in immaculate condition? If you like doing things on your own but do not pay attention to or mind every minor detail, then this theme would be a perfect fit! A shabby chic wedding is about creating a vibe that everything isn’t 100 percent done but when put together looks lovely and chic anyway. For example, have drinks serve in an assortment of glasses, or place flower centerpieces in narrow-mouthed bottles and vases of different sizes.


Ever thought of having a wedding someplace else? Your wedding day will be one of the biggest day of your life so just take a plunge and have a destination wedding you and your guests will surely remember for years to come. But if you simply like the idea of travel, bring it to your doorstep instead. Come up with exciting and one-of-a-kind novel ideas that will blow your guests away.

70’s Bands

Reintroduce the music of the seventies at your wedding. Look for upbeat seventies music that will get your guests up and dancing. Also, set up a seventies themed photo booth complete with dress-up props to enlighten the party’s mood even more.

Classic Formal

For the past few years, casual weddings have ruled the industry. But this year, grand formal wedding affairs are making a comeback. Bring champagne towers back and add lots and lots of other opulent details into the affair. Go for a dramatic entrance. Take a cue from classic fairy tales like Cinderella and have the wedding at an actual castle for a magical celebration. Think big and think fancy!

Unexpected Venues

Throw an unforgettable wedding at an unusual venue like museums, castles, cliffs, or even caves! What’s great about a unique wedding venue is that you will not need to think about the theme that hard nor will you have to go overboard with the decor because the venue already speaks for itself.
