I'm Tara Wilson, designer with Tara Wilson Events and today we're going to talk about how to choose wedding theme ideas. When you're putting your theme together, think about things that you enjoy. Think about elements that are meaningful for you and your fiance and then how can you incorporate those and make them more of a theme in your wedding. A lot of brides are carrying their theme through their set of date, on into their invitation and even into their centerpieces that they're using. A good way to find out what you like is to have tear sheets. Go through bridal magazines; even magazines in general are really great for picking out ideas that appeal to you. Look for colors that you find enticing. Think about design elements that you find inspiring. Perhaps you want to incorporate something that has to do with the way that you and your fiance got engaged. Figure out how you can use those elements to make your wedding day meaningful and special. When your guests come, you want them to feel that they're a part of the event and that's what themes do. They help make your guests feel as if they have been a part of your engagement from the very beginning. So look at magazines; talk to your florist; work with an event designer. Look at ideas that would be appealing to you as well as to your guests. I'm Tara Wilson; designer with Tara Wilson Events.
