    I know most people are having beach weddings and so their whole theme/idea is based around the beach, but on top of that, is anyone doing any specific theme such as "An Evening under the Stars" or "Casino Night" or "Pirates of the Caribbean" or any other ideas out there? I'm just trying to decide if it's worth considering or not. TIA!!!

      We're not really doing a "theme," but our inspiration is indie/retro/glam. I know that's kinda vague and maybe doesn't seem to go together, but I think it will all make sense when it comes together. We're keeping everything pretty simple when it comes to decor so the only places you will really see the "theme" are in our guestbook (doing polaroids with a fun "dress up" station to take fun pics), our invites, and any of our paperwork (programs, menu cards etc).

        well for those doing a wedding in the carribean or such, a beach is generally the theme so i think most of us have that theme. But going the etra mile to create a theme on top of that, we opted not to, as we wanted to keep expenses down. So we have beachy themed OOT bags, our invites/RSVP, etc...the general stuff.

          No theme, really, for the wedding...besides being in a tropical paradise of course

          We are, however, having a theme for our AHR. We are having it in a barn type building, with lots of wild flowers, old mason jars, candles everywhere, a country/bluegrass/rock band, low country boil and lemonade, etc... Kind of a southern rustic theme.

            I LOVE that KatyKo! If we were doing an AHR, that's what I'd do! You have to post your pics after!

              KatyKo.. I love that idea! We aren't having an AHR - but since we are getting legally married bf we get to DR and FGIL (Future Grandma In Law) is too elderly to travel and my sister is too btchy to attend in DR - they will be out witnesses. Then we are all headed back to my house for a country themed bbq (bc I am a transplanted country girl in the city) with my bridal party and any other friends that want to hang.

              As far as our wedding goes, our theme is the beach too!!! Casual, relaxed tropical fun vibe!

                Our decor and invitations are centered around our "lime" theme. FI really loves limes (limeade, lime sherbert, lime anything) and since limes are everywhere in Mexico, it made it easy! Our color is green and our centerpieces will have limes in the vase. Not hard and it seems to really pull everything together!
