Trendy Wedding Themes

Each year brings new trendy wedding themes. Having a wedding theme in mind can help guide every decision you need to make: the type of venue, your wedding dress style, your wedding colors, and the centerpieces or favors.

For example, you’d make very different decisions if you’ve decided on a rustic barn wedding vs a formal ballroom wedding. 

Are you thinking of having a wedding theme, but need some inspiration?

Check out these trendy wedding themes for 2014:
Vintage, Bollywood, Dramatic, Organic (Rustic), and Quirky!

The key is to not overdo it: Use a theme to guide the planning of your day, but don’t feel like every detail needs to match the theme!

Mason Jars with Fun Straws

This fall I went to a barn wedding that featured drinks in mason jars. I have to say I’m a fan of the mason jar trend, and adding these paper straws with a birch tree pattern added a little something extra. It made the woodsy, rustic theme of the wedding come to life!

Here are a couple places that sell them: Anthropologie – Canadian Birch Straws; Amazon – Kikkerland Paper Birch Straws

Also, the mason jars pictured above are 16-oz Ball wide-mouthed mason jars.

By the way, patterned straws could fit any season: you could find ones with candy stripes, polka dots, or a pattern specific to your wedding theme. Here’s some more paper straw inspiration.
