Choosing a wedding theme may not be something you thought about in the first stages of wedding planning, but we can assure you it’s quite the critical point. It will guide you in terms of decoration, dressing styles, guest attire, and many more pivotal decisions.

1. The Venue

We know we’re kind of stating the obvious here but the venue and the theme goes hand in hand. But as we have a specific city here,you can narrow your brainstorming results. Hamilton is especially known for it’s urban hipster-like surroundings so why not choose a more rustic theme with a side of hipster-Esque decor ,if you like that sort of thing. The city would give you a boost for free!

Now to the city’s other strength: the natural landscapes and the historic antique buildings. Hamilton’s rich history stands to this day.The landmarks have been renovated and the natural greenery has not only been preserved but also well-tended. So go ahead and check out the royal gardens, castles, mansions, and estates by the waterfalls. Get the dreamy wedding experience for much cheaper compared to other big cities, too!

2. Your Terrain

Your environment is as important as your wedding venue when it comes to planning a wedding. Would you like to use one of the picturesque waterfronts of Hamilton for your wedding? Is it a waterfall or a beach, or perhaps Hamilton Lake? 

Do you think you’re on a farm or in Hamilton’s famous art studios with shaved bricks and light bulbs? In choosing your theme, it will be very important for you to take into account all these types. It is also important to keep in mind that the theme and landscape you choose will also affect other aspects of your wedding, so take care when making this important decision.

For example, if you are considering Hamilton outdoor wedding venues, make sure to explore different options that suit your desired theme. By visiting several locations and comparing their features, you’ll be better equipped to find that perfect spot for your big day. 

Imagine your wedding details in your head. Can you imagine the colors, the theme, the decoration, the statement pieces, your outfit, and even the arrangements of flowers? Are all of these aspects compatible with your venue and the type of terrain on which you will hold your event? Don’t be afraid to change things if you feel that they are not fitting your personal taste, it’s your big day, so plan accordingly.

3. The Season

Another important aspect of choosing a theme for your wedding is to take into account the season in which your wedding will be held. There is no point in having a winter wonderland theme in the summer heat, right? Obviously, you are free to do so, but there would be quite a controversy if you did. We are not here to judge you.

4. Attire

The attire you wear at your wedding is actually very important when it comes to choosing a wedding theme. Wearing a princess-style grand gown, for example, might not be the right choice for a nautical style,a woody rustic or an old Hollywood glam-inspired wedding. Start considering your wedding attire long before you choose a theme because you won’t have to settle for an outfit you don’t like because the theme has already been chosen and executed.

Whenever a bohemian lacy gown is placed in front of greenery and mountains, it will always shine like a diamond. Additionally, modern clothing such as a jumpsuit or two-piece modern dress will look more appealing against the industrial walls and streets of Hamilton. 

The terrain’s importance is no joke about how beautiful your wedding attire will shine and how nicely everything will fit together, so take it into account.

5. Dress Code for Your Guests

The other side of wedding attire is your guests’ attire, also called the dress code. What type of appearance do you want your guests to have, especially in pictures you plan to take. Having a casual wedding by the sea, or a relaxed wedding by the ocean, you cannot expect all of your guests to be dressed up and classy. They might take liberties and look a bit too casual for your liking. Therefore, it is important to choose wisely. You may want to consider this if you are a bit more uptight about these kinds of details about keeping up appearances.

Wedding planning is not an easy task. But you can let your wedding theme guide you through all the hard decisions, plus the city’s natural charm and beauty will ease your tension when picking themes for wedding venues in Hamilton. But whatever theme you select, we are sure it will be the wedding you have always dreamed of!
