Three themes for a trendy wedding

Bohemian, chic or vintage: be inspired by our favourite wedding theme ideas for a trendy wedding that will get all the cameras flashing.

The ‘bohemian’ wedding theme

Which materials should you choose?

For a bohemian wedding, opt for a decor based around natural materials. Go for wood, string, cane, linen and green foliage. The bohemian spirit of your wedding will feel even more authentic if you get involved in the decorations: don’t hesitate to pitch in hands-on for a DIY-style wedding decor.

If your wedding celebration will take place outside, in spring or summer, you can design thematic decor that blends in with the natural environment. Why not create a folk-style teepee? You could attach a temporary swing to the branch of a tree. Or weave a wreath of twigs and branches (the symbol of eternity) to make the occasion even more unique.

These original creations will become scenographic elements that will truly personalise your wedding decor. They will be memorable creations that will add to the emotion of the day and offer your guests a unique setting for your wedding photos.

Colour selection and unexpected details

The choice of bohemian decor goes hand in hand with a multicultural, globetrotting spirit. So decorate the reception area with vivid colours that are likely to transport your guests to exotic places. You can develop the travel theme with adorable confetti in the shape of an aeroplane, for example, or by arranging Persian rugs on the ground. You’ll be on top of all the wedding theme trends.

For the table decorations, you can scatter small original features like feathers, potted plants or oh-so-bohemian dreamcatchers. Of course, you can ‘mismatch’ the tableware for an original rock’n’roll wedding decor style.

The ‘chic’ wedding theme

Which materials should you choose?

For a wedding decor that’s chic, elegant and timeless, use sophisticated materials. Wooden tables finished with glossy varnish, thick cotton tablecloths, white marble effect adhesive paper, porcelain dishes and cutlery in metal, glass, satin, silk, etc. The chic wedding decor style goes with a minimalist and refined approach for maximum effect. A ‘less is more’ attitude that is reflected as early as the wedding announcement and the ‘save the date’ cards, which set the tone.

Colour selection and unexpected details

Keeping in line with the idea of a chic wedding decor, put the emphasis on harmony and have confidence in light shades, whites and pastels. These colours will soften the atmosphere and offer harmonious surroundings, which will really brighten up your photos.

Flowers perfectly complement a classic chic wedding decor. Peonies, lilies, light roses, lavender and lily of the valley will enhance a romantic and elegant table.

Play with the transparency of glassware to add a delicate touch to your table decoration. Pearls will add an element of sophistication, bringing radiance to the cutlery and candlesticks. Why go without?

The ‘vintage’ wedding theme

Which materials should you choose?

To fully embrace the vintage wedding theme, play with recyclable materials and upcycle them! Pallets, lightweight crates, wooden planks, glass jars, tea sets, etc. For this trend, there’s one watchword: bargain hunting.

For this wedding decor style that combines vintage flair and romanticism, opt for a dance hall ambiance. Entertain your guests with game stalls that will bring back childhood memories (coconut shy, hook-a-duck, who’s who?, etc.). Activities that promise funny and original wedding photos.

Colour selection and unexpected details

Go for retro and poetic colours that perfectly illustrate the idea of a vintage wedding theme. Bunting, chequered tablecloths and tangy sweets will add sparkling colour.

To enhance the atmosphere and give true character to your wedding decor, don’t hesitate to arrange second-hand objects on the table or place them outside. A typewriter, bicycle, old books, a wheelbarrow filled with flowers, records… and why not a cute vintage Volkswagen Beetle hired especially for the occasion?

Choose the themed decor that suits you best and that will provide the perfect setting for all your wedding memories. All you have to do is say YES.
