Starting to plan your 2020 wedding? Before you start booking your caterers and your venues, consider settling on a theme. A themed wedding is fun and whimsical, and can also reduce a lot of the decision-making involved. When you have a theme, things like colours, decor, music, and food come together more easily and you can concentrate on the areas of the wedding that matter most to you.
A lovely wedding at the botanical gardens doesn't have to wait for spring. If you love fresh flowers, green plants, butterflies, and delicate food and drink, a garden-inspired wedding is a great choice. Garden weddings often have lighter fare, such as canapés and spritzers, and can be held throughout the year in enclosed garden environments. Pay special attention to floral accents such as bouquets and centrepieces, and consider a gown to match.
Get in touch with your natural side at a venue like the Prince Henry Centre. Nature-inspired weddings can span the gamut from romantic to rustic, depending on what you and your soon-to-be-spouse enjoy. Go to a cabin retreat, or enjoy your time in the rolling hills. Going back to nature can turn a stressful event into a relaxing one, especially if you don't like the hustle and bustle of the city.
Bring the roaring 20s to the 2020s. Gatsby style parties are exceptionally popular and decadent. If you yearn for the fashion styles, arts, and entertainment of yesteryear, consider theming your wedding appropriate to a different time altogether. You can pull up old pictures when planning out your decor, and have your groomsmen and bridesmaids dress accordingly. It'll be a special moment out of time for you and your spouse.
Beach-themed weddings are exceptionally popular, and Australia has some of the best beaches in the world. Wylie's Bath, Coogie Surf Club, and the North Bondi Life Saving Club are all great choices for weddings and other types of events, such as Sydney corporate catering events. Beach-themed wedding can have casual attire such as sundresses, and are a more laid back choice all around. Choose some modern, BBQ-themed menus, and you'll have everything set for a proper "luau."
Black Tie Weddings
Consider going full formal with a black tie event. A lot of people consider weddings themselves the most formal occasion they'll ever go to, but black tie events are even more formal and give people a great chance to dress up to their very best. It may be the only chance you get to create the gala of your dreams! Elevate your menu with a sophisticated palate, canapés, and custom drinks.
Vintage Venue Weddings
Historical and vintage venues are really a theme of themselves, such as the State Library of New South Wales. If you love certain architecture, consider looking for a building that you love, too. You can theme your wedding around the time that the building was developed, and consequently create a beautiful wedding that will look like it stepped right out of a picture book.
We've talked about using seasonal produce for catering for corporate events, and seasonal produce seasonal themes can also be used to enhance a wedding. Seasonal produce is better tasting, more visually appealing, and supports local Australian farmers. If you're looking for a theme, consider a winter, summer, autumn, or spring wedding.
