    Top 10 Wedding Theme Ideas for 2017

    Are you recently engaged? Not sure which theme to go with? Allow us to get you started, simply click onto the link to be taken to our Pinterest boards full of fabulous ideas!


    Think chic black and white, beautiful peonies, intricate lace, pretty pearls and lots of romantic details – remember that Paris is the City of Love. Luxurious fabrics used on tables will add to the effect, as will dramatic florals – we love the idea of lots and lots of peonies and roses in a variety of pinks and whites. You could have classic monochrome Chanel bags with peonies as décor around your venue, or as centrepieces and go for pretty coloured French fancies on tables and as favours. Obviously you’ll wear No 5 as you walk up the aisle. Check out lots of inspiration HERE

    Silver and White

    Silver and white works such a treat for weddings, looking elegant, glitzy, fun and classic all at the same time, and compliments a grey, neutral, white or ice blue theme so beautifully. These subdued, cool combinations really allow the silver to shine without being too much. Check out lots of inspiration on our Pinterest board HERE.


    Navy makes such a gorgeous colour theme and can be combined with such a variety of colours. We think it looks lovely and classic with white (read our blog on this colour combo HERE, pretty and contemporary with raspberry and gold and fresh and fun with corals. Check out lots of inspiration HERE.

    Enchanted Forest

    This has got to be one of our favourite themes EVER. Imagine lots of gorgeous mirrors, candles and lanterns lighting up your venue, fairy lights twinkling, soft draping, lots and lots of foliage, blooms and a touch of metallic accents. Find lots of inspiration on our Pinterest board HERE.


    Rainbow themes are fun and playful but can also be very elegant and contemporary. Think lots of pretty colours, against crisp white. In terms of the colours for a rainbow wedding theme, it works best if you pick four or five colours that are somewhat ‘related’. So they could be brights, pastels or jewel colours for example. We have lots of inspiration for you on this colour theme HERE.


    How could we do a wedding theme article and not include Pantone’s Colour of the Year 2017? Greenery is amongst the most perfect of shades for a spring wedding and there are so many ways to use it – from wedding bouquets, bridesmaid dresses and able décor. Personally we think it works exceptionally well when paired with neutrals and an accent of rose gold. Have a look at our Pinterest board HERE.

    Blush and Gold

    Our Ballroom lends itself to so many gorgeous themes – all-whites, pastels, neutrals – but one of our favourites has got to be the ever-elegant peach and gold combination. With our wooden floors, neutral colouring, gilded touches, ornate chandeliers and exquisite windows this is such a classic theme which looks beautiful in our venue. You’ll find some inspiration to get you started HERE.

    Beauty and The Beast

    With being one of the most eagerly anticipated movies of 2017, it’s only expected that it will inspire many a wedding. We think ‘fairy-tale’ touches look beautiful, elegant and absolutely timeless. Think ornate mirrors with quotes, signs and table plans, stunning candelabras, intricate jewellery and classic wedding cakes. The key Is to go for an overall fairy-tale look, rather than honing into Beauty and the Beast, this will ensure your wedding looks absolutely timeless as you look back upon in decades to come. You'll find lots of inspiration on our Pinterest board HERE.


    This is such a fun theme, go for succulent sorbet colours complimented with greenery, pineapples, flamingos and beautiful blooms. Peonies work so well with this theme, especially in corals and pinks. Flamingos add lovely playful touch to this theme, you can use then as cake toppers or work them into your centrepiece. Pineapples filled with flowers also make beautiful centrepieces. Check out lots of inspiration HERE.


    If you’re having a wedding around Halloween, use all of the elements available to you – leaves in a hundred shades of glorious colours, the deep plums and berries of the season, chutneys and jams as wedding favours, seasonal blooms like hydrangeas and dahlias, pumpkins filled with flowers lining the aisle and scented candles creating wonderful aromas from gingerbread to cinnamon. We have lots of inspiration for you on this colour theme HERE.
