While couples often use a color scheme for a cohesive decor for their wedding, incorporating a shared passion into the theme can be just as beautiful and create a much more personalized atmosphere. But what's the best way to pull this off?
According to Brides magazine, begin by sitting down with your partner and making a list of the things you love to do together. Refrain from naming every shared interest you have – it can lead to an overwhelming and messy list of concepts – and instead stick to what you each care about most.
Next, think outside the box and try to creatively weave your passions into your affair, from the table settings to the wedding favors.
"Think of your wedding as the essence of yourselves, not a mirror image," the publication suggests. "If you have [Thai food] every Sunday…add Asian flavors, such as ginger and coconut, to the wedding cake, or set the table with bamboo flatware."
Finally, you can also use the location to further your theme.
"Consider an unexpected venue (library, zoo, museum) that truly reflects something about which you're passionate and that offers a clear glimpse into your lives together," the news source recommends.
