What are the five top wedding themes for 2012? You may be somewhat surprised at what brides and grooms are choosing this year for backdrops, settings, decorations, and wedding favors. Traditional weddings are still in style, but more and more couples are looking for something different, going against the status quo to put on nuptial celebrations that dazzle the eye and give the guests something to talk about for years to come. If you're planning a wedding this year, you might want to consider one of these.
Fairy Tale themes: Be Snow White or Cinderella to his Prince Charming. The movie industry isn't the only business opening up Grimm's fables these days. Fairy tale themed weddings, complete with costumes, gingerbread men, and pumpkin coach wedding favors, are definitely more popular across the country this year, more so than any of the other themes on this list. Looks like fantasy trumps reality for 2012.
Beach themes: Who doesn't want to get married on a white sandy beach with the sun shining overhead and the waves crashing on the shore for background music? If you're like most folks, you'd prefer to do it in a tropical paradise, but getting guests there would be prohibitively expensive. How about doing a beach theme instead? It's the second most popular setting for a wedding this year.
Las Vegas themes: Gambling and show tunes are alive and well, not just in the City of Sin, but across the nation in wedding reception halls everywhere. Vegas wedding themes have always been popular and this year they seem to be on the rise. Are folks more likely to gamble with the Mayan calendar predicting an early exit? That's one theory. Here's another. Vegas themed weddings are just a lot of fun.
Asian themes: Resurgence in interest in Eastern culture has led to an increase in the number of Asian themed weddings in the United States and abroad. Marriage is a more solemn and celebrated affair in nations where history dates back several millennia. Even non-Asians seem to have taken an interest in these time-honored traditions. You won't be the first to choose an Asian wedding theme if you go this route.
Seasonal themes: Winter, spring, summer, or fall, all you have to do is call - any wedding planner, cake maker, or wedding favors supplier. They all have seasonal options, no doubt the reason why this category is on the list. You can never go wrong with matching the décor and setting with the season of the year. For that matter, if you're truly in love, you can never go wrong no matter what you do with your wedding theme. Congratulations and may you have a long and prosperous life together.
