Unique Wedding Themes and Ideas

Here’s comes the bride, all dressed in…a Vegas showgirl-inspired wedding dress? We’re all used to the traditional wedding theme− a white dress, religious indoor/secular outdoor ceremony, classically decorated reception venue with your typical cocktail hour, a 3-4 course dinner menu, and entertainment by a band and/or DJ. This route is great, and most of us will choose this option when planning our own nuptials; the key word being most.


The fact is, many couples are turning to unique and innovative ways to celebrate their big day. Never heard of a circus themed wedding before? Maybe you just need to think more outside the box. Putting on an outlandishly themed wedding may be over-the-top for the rest of us, but there are some ideas we can steal borrow from these in-your-face couples to create our own desired wow-factors.


80’s Themed Wedding



80’s Inspired Décor One of the most clever ways to leave a great impression on your guests is to decorate interestingly. If you and your partner at known as the music buffs to your family and friends, then they won’t be surprised to see old records as placemats at your reception. Personalize this idea further by labeling the records some of your favorite songs!


Party Like It’s 1985 Another great way to bring the 80’s to your wedding is by integrating inflatable, neon-colored, rock and roll “toys” into the reception. Neon colors are not something expected to be seen at a traditional wedding, but who says you’re traditional? All this sounding corny to you? Picture your drunken friends singing along and playing inflatable guitar to your favorite Bon Jovi or Journey songs. Now that’s a photo-op!


Circus Themed Wedding


Kiss and Tell If you’re looking for an adventurous x-factor to build into your wedding, this may be the one for you. A kissing booth is a fun and playful way for your guests to interact with one another. You can choose to have the booth during the cocktail hour or during the actual reception. Thinking it may be too vulgar? It doesn’t have to be! Kisses on the cheek will most likely be the way to go. Think of how appreciative the singles will be…


Circus Treats One of the things people most look forward to when going to the circus is all the fun foods. Make this a part of your wedding by feature treats like candy apples, a popcorn machine, hotdogs, hamburgers and peanuts. This is a great option for a day time, outdoor wedding cocktail hour or reception.


Vegas Themed Wedding

Vegas Entertainment Vegas wouldn’t be Vegas without the shows. The most talented performers from around the world strive to perform in Sin City. Bring some of the show time magic home to your wedding by featuring a Vegas-inspired performer!

Creative Cakes If you love Vegas (or just gambling), but want to be more subtle in your approach to showing it at your wedding, have your cake say it for you! Wedding cakes are always more fun when they’re creative. Cake pops can also make a great treat for your guests as they leave the world you just created for them. But don’t just stop at rolled-up cake dipped in chocolate. Enhance your theme with theme-related Cake Pops.


Candy Themed Wedding


Cotton Candy Galore Who wouldn’t want to go to a candy themed wedding? Instead of having your reception look like the Willy Wonka Factory, give your big day a sweet touch with cotton candy. Having someone churning fresh cotton candy is something everyone will enjoy. Or you can get really creative and have the cotton candy spun around glow sticks so people can enjoy their sugar while dancing!

Candy Buffet Of course you’ll be offering your guests a sit-down or buffet dinner option, but why not provide a candy buffet option too? You can make this part of the décor by coordinating the wedding color scheme into the candy you choose. It’s just a simple but enjoyable touch that will make your wedding that much more memorable. Looking for someone to customize a candy buffet at your wedding? Check out Catherine Scerbo events for everything candy!



Sometimes you don’t need to do much to create a theme. Often, your venue may provide it for you. If you plan a wedding at a venue near the water, think about incorporating a nautical theme. If your location has an intimate feel, you may want to transport your guests into a fairy tale wedding with your décor.  Use the natural beauty of you wedding’s atmosphere to your advantage.
