Top Wedding Themes for 2022 & 2023 Brides, Part Two

If you’re searching for the perfect theme for your wedding next year, but didn’t find anything that caught your eye in my first roundup of theme ideas, don’t worry! I’ve got 7 more for you to consider!

Jewel Toned Wedding

Jewel Tones

Deep, rich jewel tones are so sophisticated and a little sexy! Think dark blues, deep purples, emeralds, ruby reds, and golds. Jewel tones are especially popular in the fall and winter – I love seeing them stand out against a gorgeous snowy backdrop – but you can add in lighter colors like peaches, lilacs, and soft greenery to make this theme gorgeous year-round!

Gettin’ Groovy

Who said disco is dead? Retro weddings taking inspiration from the groovy 60s and 70s are so popular and fun! Colors like mustard yellow, burnt orange, and deep teal will bring this theme to life! Add in some fun, funky fonts on your invitations and wedding signage and have a (disco) ball with your wedding fashion!

Elevated Eighties

If the 70s aren’t your style, what about the 80s – but with a modern twist! Voluminous skirts, puff sleeves, lace, and bow accents have been spotted on runways from Monique Lhullier to Viktor & Rolf. Just like 80s fashion was over-the-top, so were wedding details. These days, you can hearken back to the 80s with artistic, eye-catching cakes, elaborate florals, and fun colors.

Black & White

A black and white wedding theme is simple, elegant, and modern. These colors can be implemented in a variety of ways, from an elegant black and white cake to striking tablescapes to an anemone-filled bouquet. Play with patterns to add visual interest. 


Michigan Winery WeddingWinery Wedding

Rolling fields, beautiful colors, and of course delicious wine – what could be better? If you and your hunny are all about la dolce vita, consider getting married at a vineyard or winery. Opt for simple decor, letting the vistas speak for themselves. 


From Napa Valley to Bordeaux or Tuscany, there are so many gorgeous places to visit if you’re thinking about eloping or having a destination wedding!


If you and your hunny are poetry lovers or avid readers, consider celebrating that on your wedding day! Use books as decor (of course!) and consider tying in vintage typewriters, or decor made out of book pages. A historic library will make the perfect venue for your literary-themed wedding. 

Summer Citrus

Bright and cheerful, a summer citrus wedding is sure to be stunning! Orange, lemon yellow, and peachy pink make the perfect palette for your big day. Make sure to incorporate these colorful fruits in your decor and go big and bold with your flowers! 

Where to go? If Florida is on your bucket list, why not get married in an orange grove?
