    Hey Ladies, I need help. Everyone wants to know what my wedding theme is. I have no ideal. I am getting married at the Riu in Ja. So I thought that being in Ja was the theme. I guess I was wrong I can up with Island elegance. But I don't know what the means. So how do I create my theme? At the wedding? Reception? When?

      I always say "Beach Chic." I've had a few people ask me about theme....but mostly they just figure it is naturally going to be beachy.......

        I guess my theme is considered "beachy", like most of the other girls here. Almost everything I am doing has to do with the beach, i.e. starfish, hibiscus flowers, etc.

            I guess mine focuses mostly on "Tropical" as opposed to "Beachy" Using lots of palm trees. Verbally, I say my "theme" (or overall feeling I want to communicate at my wedding) is "Easy, breezy, and beautiful" (like Covergirl!)

            (No stiff hard hair, no tons of wedding traditions, very little formality!)

            we really went with the vineyard idea since we wound up using the colors of grapes and my monograms had a grape vine in them...I don't think you have to have a theme, but if you say Jamaican or beachy I think people will get the idea. Think about your decor and what you are going for and that is your theme, I don't think it has to mean a themed party like a birthday party or anything.

              I think I have embraced the hibiscus flower. I use it for everything. I am even going to get a tattoo of one after the wedding!

                  Which leads to my next point. With this being the theme of my wedding, when I show some of my closest peeps my wedding dress they tell me..."Oh, I thought you would have something more glamourous than that." They are starting to make me feel like I need a "Wow" dress when that's not what I am going for. I want something natural and when I first saw my dress my eyes lit up. When I found out it was on sale and was $150 cheaper than I thought, my eyes lit up even more...lol. But even til this day, I look at the dress on line and I feel it and I am still in love with it... But is it appropriate since it is my BIG DAY

                  Please give me words of wisdom ladies...lol
                  If you love your dress, and its what you envisioned, it doesn't matter what other people think. I can't remember if you posted your dress, but I'm sure its beautiful :) Your vision sounds like a more laid back elegance, and a less formal dress would definitely be appropriate! It will be beautiful - go with what you want!

                    Your dress is beautiful. Ignore your friends. They can do what they want when they get married. You found your perfect dress, and it doesn't matter what they think.
