If there's one thing we love, it's a statement! More and more brides are opting for bold, vibrant color palettes for their big day as opposed to more muted neutrals. While neutral girlies definitely hold a special place in our hearts, bold wedding themes are having a moment and we are here for it—after all your wedding day is a party, and bold themes scream that the loudest!
If you're a bride who's ever felt they were born in the wrong era, then a retro theme may be for you! Different decades possess different style elements, and those elements can fit perfectly into your wedding day. Incorporating retro themes into your wedding can be done as subtle as you want while still being bold! You don't have to have a green shag runner down your aisle to embrace the 60s (though if you're into that—do you, boo!). Pulling specific elements from your designated decade and modernizing them seems to be the way to go. For example, a groovy color palette, arches, and disco balls can tastefully represent the 70s! Metallics, blacks, and geometric patterns are classic 20s. Still want to go farther back than that? The popular white and blue toile de jouy patterns you've probably seen date back to the late 18th century—vintage style at its best! Most retro elements are still as beautiful now as they were then, so follow your heart and you can't go wrong!
Ahhh the Wes Anderson style. You might have seen this trend going around on social media—and for good reason! Wes Anderson is known for exaggerated color palettes, centricity, and symmetrical elements. In other words, he's known for portraying a fun, bold style! Many brides are incorporating this exact style into their weddings with vivid color palettes and centric photography angles. Include some eclectic backdrop vignettes for decoration or a fun photo backdrop. Color blocking is a must! Traditional Wes Anderson-esque colors include various shades of orange, yellow, blue, and green; however, this isn't end all be all. It's your wedding, feel free to get creative and tailor the day to you and your partner!
The maximalist approach is taking the wedding industry by storm! Over-the-top details and lots of color are just two key elements of this bold theme. Think various textures, patterns, colors—more is more when it comes to a maximalist mindset. Don't shy away from color! Bold palettes can be seen in dresses, tuxes, florals, food and decor. Mismatched bridesmaids dresses are a fun way to incorporate different colors or patterns. Bright colors aren't your vibe? Don't worry! Bring an element of moodiness to the maximalism theme with a darker color palette. There is no limit when it comes to a maximalist wedding theme, add what you love and keep going until you're happy!
Bold wedding themes exude fun energy and give your guests something different than what's traditionally expected. You'll always remember your wedding day, but these bold themes make a lasting impression that will make it hard for others to forget it as well!
