Unusual Wedding Themes

As an events venue with a team of experienced wedding planners, it’s safe to say we’ve seen it all. From Halloween themes, two tone colour schemes, to Harry Potter or a traditional white wedding, the possibilities are endless when it comes to your big day.

That’s why we’ve compiled our 5 favourite unusual wedding themes to give you some inspiration.

The Great Gatsby

A “Great wedding themes” blog would not be complete without The Great Gatsby theme. A timeless classic, The Great Gatsby is all about opulence which makes it the perfect inspiration for those seeking a sumptuous wedding.

The Roaring Twenties set the stage for a beautiful night of luxurious glitz and glamour. From the gold trimmed invitations, to the vintage Chrysler to carry the newlyweds off on their honeymoon, it’s a wedding nobody is likely to forget, just don’t stop by the garage to fill up.

Happily Ever After

We all love fairy-tales, so why wouldn’t you celebrate your own happily ever after with this classic princess theme?

You’ll definitely be the fairest one of all on your wedding day. Whether you surround yourself with your favourite books, candelabra, a clock, a teapot, and a teacup like Belle in Beauty and The Beast, or incorporate Snow White with plenty of mirrors and an apple-filled forest for your reception, it will be a romance story your guests will tell for years to come.

Or opt to write your own love story like this couple did for their big day…

Winter Wonderland

Winter Wonderland has always been a favourite for us when it comes to wedding themes, especially in chilly Edinburgh winters. What’s not to love about snowflakes?

A magic and romantic winter wonderland wedding theme can create a mystical fairy tale at the ceremony and the reception. We recommend atmospheric lighting to create that magical winter wonderland atmosphere. Try colours like ice blue, light purple, blush, or silver.

Peacock Colours

Bold blue, rich purple, and opulent jade never “popped” so beautifully against a white dress, bringing so much freedom to let your imagination run wild.

You may think it too bold a statement, but one look at this decor had us convinced. Not to mention, our eye-catching Main Hall is the perfect bold and bright venue for a theme like this, with deep blues and bold reds for a unique wedding experience that nobody will forget.

Cosmic Love

For the modern couple looking to move away from the traditional wedding style, you can’t go wrong with a twinkling night-sky theme. The possibilities are as endless as the galaxy.

The use of geometric angles and bold colours represent the sky at night and all its unbelievable magic, or imitate the stars with a backdrop of fairy lights. A space-like theme can also open up infinite possibilities for your colour scheme with varying shades of purple, pink, blue and teal being popular choices.

Brides may even dip-dye their hair purple, opt for minimalist but chic dresses and geometric accessories. This theme also means a galaxy themed cake, modern invitation suite design and a string art photo backdrop. It’s a chic and stylish theme without being over-the-top futuristic.
