Weddings can be beautiful and fully enjoyed regardless of the colors or themes but including elegant color schemes and personal wedding themes makes the moment more intimate. We have a few great theme ideas to help you decide on the right one for your special day. The following themes and ideas are among the most popular and sure to add a special touch to your wedding no matter which one you choose.
1. Japan Blossoms
Though cherry blossoms are not the official flower of Japan, the Sakura tree is a popular cherry tree in Japan. The beauty of the blossoms is that they appear in a variety of soft colors such as, pale pink, white or dark pink. Select a Japanese or cherry blossom themed wedding and enhance with delicate decor.
2. Trendy Meets Shabby
A shabby but trendy themed wedding exhibits details of antique with slightly trendy accents. Newer items used in the wedding appear worn or distressed to carry out the theme. Sepia finished pastels can be used as linens for tables or pillows, roses.
3. Sandy Beaches
The beach themed wedding is extremely popular due in part to its relaxed and peaceful ambiance. The beach is an inspiring place that is often associated with romance and love and flows perfectly into a wedding theme. Blend colors such as deep-sea blue with emerald green.
4. Royal Vintage
Royal weddings are a popular choice among brides who desire an elegant and elite style wedding. Consider a garden, park or pavilion venue of a historic mansion for the wedding. Long verandas are perfect for a royal wedding and include elegant decor that charms and warms the heart.
5. Rustic Affair
A rustic style wedding can be charming and fun. Elements of country life meet a love affair and presents an experience for all to remember.Rustic weddings are best presented with earth tone palates such as tan, umber, sage, yellow and cinnamon.
6. Romantic Illusion
Create an illusion of romance with candles, bubbly champagne and soft petal roses. Heartfelt music and elegant linen makes the moment delightfully pleasant. Pearl accents, red or white wine, over-sized bows and chiffon are the perfect blend for romance.
7. Outside Tent
This theme crosses the mind of many brides at some point during planning. Fresh outdoors and a touch of freedom are natural decor for any wedding.The challenge of most tent weddings are the associated rental costs. Set-up fees, chair, table and tent rental add up quickly.
8. Summer Wedding
Summer weddings are especially beautiful because of the abundance of colorful flowers that are in season. Consider weather conditions as well to make guests as comfortable as possible.
This is perfect for couples who love sports or perhaps one or both are involved in some type of sports as a career. Include sports insignia on wedding stationary and include it in the decor and cake as well.
10. Back Lawn
This theme means inviting guests to a private residence, which makes it a much more intimate moment. Consider space allowance to accommodate invited guests and use pieces of furniture and elegant fountains to decorate the space.
11. Barn Wedding
Another option for a country style wedding that is extremely beautiful. Incorporate relaxation, rustic and simple elements to make the moment perfect. Oil lamps, lanterns and hay can assist with the decor.
12. Retro Style
Modern styled weddings have made a return with retro gowns, bands and wedding decor. Old is new and new is out with this one and it looks absolutely fabulous. Visit thrift shops and consignment stores to find older items for decor.
This is the same as a travel themed wedding which is really popular and different. Revisit your favorite city, country or perhaps where you and the groom took your first vacation. Design wedding invites and programs to depict the destination as an added hint of the theme.
Do fairies make you happy? Why not include them on your wedding day? Outdoor weddings work well for fairy themes and places such as large backyards, botanical gardens or lakes are perfect. Use lavenders, pastels and gentle whites to accent silver centrepieces and create a fairytale ambiance.
Building an amazing life for yourself and making the most of every opportunity presented to you is an excellent way to make sure you are ready to get married. Being married is a wonderful and fulfilling path for your life, but it’s essential to realize that once you’ve gotten married, your life is not necessarily about your wants and needs anymore. Once you tie the knot, you have to start thinking in terms of “we” instead of “I,” meaning that you may not have the opportunity to do all the things you’ve always dreamed of doing. Before getting married, make sure you’ve done some things for yourself; start with these great, exciting adventures!
A change of scenery can do wonders in changing your perspective. You don’t have to go to some exotic, faraway locale; hop the state line and see someplace new, if only for a day or two. You’ll come back feeling refreshed and renewed by your new experiences and feeling of freedom.
2. Holiday Tryst
The holiday season is a great time for a bit of a fling, but you’d probably better get this one out of the way before you find your future hubby. An intense and passionate holiday tryst can be a huge confidence booster and give you a taste of the wonder and joy of being single.
3. Live Alone
Before getting married, living alone is an essential part of your personal development. Living by yourself means being able to sing in the shower, walk around in your birthday suit and make decisions that only affect you. Living alone can be a huge step in discovering your true self, so make sure you’ve got a little single time under your belt before getting married.
4. Pick Up a Hobby
If there’s something you’ve always wanted to learn, there’s no better time than before getting married. No matter where your interests lie, you can find some kind of hobby to keep you busy and help you learn a few things. If you like reading, find a book club. If you’re more of a collector, check out numismatics or philately (coin and stamp collecting, respectively).
5. Date, Date, Date
Before getting married, it’s important to know that you’re ready for a serious relationship and willing to make a long-term relationship work. One of the most reliable ways to do that is to date several different people with different interests, personalities and qualities. This will help you be more aware of what you want (and don’t) in your marriage partner.
6. Know Yourself
Being married can be an incredible, and incredibly frustrating, experience. Knowing who you are and what you want before getting married is the best way for your marriage to succeed.

So, when’s the last time that you had a bob haircut? If you’re looking for something that is easy to maintain, adorable to look at and doesn’t require a ton of visits to your local hair salon, it’s the cut that we recommend. Hands down.
And what kind of bob would look best? Well, that depends. If you want one that has a bit of movement to it but doesn’t have a lot of extreme “choppiness”, you might want to go with a layered bob.
As you’ll see in a just a moment, there are all sorts of ways to wear it…that there are all kinds of ways to end up feeling like a layered bob is one of the best decisions that you’ve made in a really long time.
Inverted Layered Bob For Thick Hair
Is your hair on the really thick side? If so, you’ll look so amazing with a layered inverted thick bob like this. Especially if you decide to go with an ombre color.
Inverted Layered Bob With A Short Tapered Back
Or how about this cut? It’s very similar to the one we just showed you, but if you look really closely, you’ll see that the neckline is tapered pretty close.
Inverted Layered Bob With Highlights Throughout
Sometimes, when it comes to hairstyles, it’s all about the detailing. This inverted bob is a bit different that the others because most of the blonde highlights are centered around the top and front in order to give it a sun-kissed look.
Inverted Bob With A Side Part
If you want to keep a considerable amount of length in the front of your inverted bob, you can still keep your hair out of your face. Just put a side part in. It will give you an effortless side-swept look.
Chin-Length Bob With Long Layers
Chin-length bobs are super cute and really easy to maintain. And if they have some long layers in them, you can move your head in any direction and you’ll look picture perfect. No matter what.
Wavy Layered Bob
If your hair has a naturally wavy pattern to it, cut it into a bob and add some long layers to it. In fact, get it slightly tapered in the back. That will help to give your waves a bit of extra definition.
Inverted Layered Bob
If you’ve always wondered what an inverted layered bob looks like, here’s a perfect example of one. Super tapered in the back and longer in the front to give your bob a bit of an edge.
Short Wavy Bob With Longer Layers
This is a shorter version of a wavy bob. What makes it look so full is the fact that the layers are pretty long. We like that towards the bottom, they’re longer than the rest. It helps to bring out some of the “personality” in the hair.
Long Layers In The Front Bob
This bob is pretty short too. But there are long layers in the front and top. Do take special notice of the fact that her bangs are a bit shorter though. That helps her from having to push her hair out of her face on a constant basis.
Long Layered Bob
If you’re someone who happens to keep up with hair trends, then you probably already know that the other name for a long bob is a “lob”. That’s what you see here. The color is really nice and it looks like the ends have been cut with a razor rather than scissors. That’s one of our favorite techniques.
Air-Dried Long Layered Bob
This is the kind of long bob for the woman who wants hair that requires less than five minutes each day to do it. Just wash, condition, rinse, towel dry and you’re all set. (Especially if your hair is naturally wavy or curly.)
Sombre Layered Bob
Hairstyles for 2016: And just what is a sombre bob? It’s hair that’s cut into a bob hairstyle with the sombre hair coloring technique added to it. In a nutshell, a sombre is nothing more than the softer version of the ombre style.
Silver Layered Bob
Is silver hair color still in? Yep. Here’s just one way that you can wear it.
Long Layered Two-Tone Inverted Bob
We always like the kind of hairstyles where we’re pretty sure we won’t see our “twin” in a room if we got it. Although a long layered inverted bob is somewhat common, what makes this one stand out is the two-tone coloring. You can try it like this with the dark on the bottom and the light on the top or you can reverse it in order to appear even more distinctive.
Long Bob With Curly Tips
For a cut to still be considered a bob (or even a lob), this is pretty much the longest you can go. The way to get the curls on the ends is to use a curling iron or roller set the very bottom parts.
Layered Bob For Thick Straight Hair
Do you have thick straight hair and you’re not really sure what to do with it? Take this picture to your stylist. We’re pretty sure that they’ll give you the thumbs up when it comes to being a cut that’s great for your hair texture.
Long Layered Bob (That’s Longer In The Front)
Although upon first glace, it looks like her hair is the same length all the way around, it’s actually a bit longer in the front. That, along with the tousled side part makes this a unique kind of lob.
Wavy Layered Bob With Front Highlights
Here’s another wavy lob. What makes it a bit different from the others is not only are there highlights throughout but big chunks of blonde coloring in the front where the hair frames the face.
Red Inverted Bob (With Bangs And Layers In The Back)
Automatically, an inverted bob is considered to be a layered bob. The red hair makes it really dramatic while the bangs help to soften the style—just a bit.
Layered Chin-Length Bob (With Multiple Colors)
Some hairstyles can only be described as a work of art. This is a great example of that. Although the cut is pretty standard, the multiple colors makes it the look to beat. If you’ve fallen in love at first sight but you don’t want to try something that is quite so permanent, there are always temporary or even spray colors that you can apply.
Reverse Ombre Short Layered Bob
Short hairstyle for women age over 50: If you’re an older woman, you can still wear the latest hair color trends. Here’s one way to sport your natural grey hair and still combine it with the reverse ombre coloring technique.
When you’re planning a wedding, it can feel like suddenly a whole new world opens up to you, and this world can be overwhelming without proper support. There are hundreds of choices to make for the invitations alone, and it can be very easy for brides-to-be to find themselves confused and frustrated by how quickly new questions pop up every day.
It is at this point that a majority of women turn to Google for the answers, desperately searching the internet for ideas and hoping that someone out there has an easy answer. We have the statistics on what brides have Googled the most, and have some answers for your most common questions:
1. What Is The Purpose Of A Garter?
Answer: This remnant of the past is used in modern weddings for symbolic purposes, but the actual meaning of this accessory has been lost to time. Garters were originally designed to hold up stockings, and were an essential and functional element of the bride’s outfit.
Answer: Finding the right lingerie for under your dress is important, because you need to navigate around the unusual styles that some dresses have. Strapless and backless bras, or bras featuring plunging necklines, may be needed to complete your look, and gorgeous shape wear can make you feel like a goddess even when the dress has been removed.
3. How To Get Him To Propose
Answer: Although this question is technically asked before the wedding planning process begins, we still feel like we should address this common issue. Our advice: try a little bit of patience – you can’t rush perfection!
4. How Much Does A Wedding Cost?
Answer: This is one of the questions brides have Googled the most, but the resulting answer can be very misleading. While the average cost of a wedding in the US is around $35,000, this number is skewed by a few big spenders – the majority of couples spend less than $10,000 on a wedding.
5. How To Plan A Wedding
Answer: If you’re not planning on hiring a professional, you’ll want to work hard to gather tips and tricks from other brides on how to create the perfect day without stressing yourself to death. Brides have Googled searches for planning applications, and make good use of digital or hard-copy planning boards to collect ideas and organize your thoughts.
If you feel like you’re asking a lot of questions during this process, know that other brides have Goggled the same things, so don’t feel silly for googling things like “What happens at bachelor parties?” or “What should I add to my bridal registry?” In the age of the internet, you can find a million ideas for your “something blue” without ever leaving the house, and there are pre-designed wedding playlists, menus, and designs for every kind of taste. You can use the power of the internet to your advantage, so sit back, relax, and keep searching.
