8 Unique Wedding Themes Your Guests Haven’t Seen Yet

Not every wedding needs a theme, but if you love spectacle and details that tie together seamlessly, they can be a lot of fun!

However, it’s a little less fun when you’re picking the same theme we’ve all seen on Pinterest or TikTok a hundred times.

You and your spouse-to-be are unique, so show off your personality and creativity by picking a theme that’s a little more obscure. Here are eight unique wedding themes your guests haven’t seen yet!


How to Pick a Wedding Theme

If you’re in the beginning stages of wedding planning, you know how easy it can be to feel pulled in multiple directions. There are so many great ideas out there! How can you possibly pick from all those unique wedding themes?

First, remember that your wedding should speak to who you are as a couple. This can either be a shared hobby, how you met, or a favorite movie. Just make sure you’re not picking a theme just because it’s popular.

For maximum enjoyment, your theme should be fairly recognizable to guests. While you’re totally free to theme your wedding based on an obscure anime you both like, your big day might be more fun if your guests are in on it.

Feel free to be as “on the nose” or as subtle as you like. For instance, a color palette of scarlet and gold will nod to your Hogwarts house without you having to hang broomsticks from the ceiling.


Unique Wedding Themes

We’ve all seen rustic weddings, glamorous weddings, and even Christmas weddings. Each of these themes is popular for a good reason, but for some couples, popularity is the exact reason not to pick them.

Instead, here are eight alternatives to consider.

1. Rustic Texas Wedding

We can guarantee all of your guests will love this one (yes, even the out-of-towners)!

Celebrate Texas by wearing your favorite pair of boots and decorate with plenty of leather, weathered wood, and bandana print. For dinner, your guests can enjoy a stunning nacho or taco bar as they listen to a local mariachi band.

If you really want to blow them away, rent beer burros or mini longhorns for the most “you’ll never believe this!” photo ops.


2. Día de los Muertos Wedding

A Día de los Muertos theme checks off all the boxes: It’s perfect for “spooky season,” honors a timeless Mexican tradition, and has a great motto built in (“Till Death Do Us Part”).

If you like color, you’re in luck. Orange, yellow, turquoise, white, red, and pink are a gorgeous color combination you can use anywhere. Plus, colorful papel picado banners make any venue come alive!

3. Honor Your Culture

It’s very likely that your tastes, hobbies, and interests will change over the course of your lifetime. Instead of theming your wedding based on your favorite book or movie franchise, celebrate your culture!

Picking a theme that’s personal to the two of you can make the day feel much more poignant.

4. ‘Tis the Season!

If you’re getting married close to a holiday, why not let the festivities inspire your wedding?

Most holidays are already associated with a specific color palette, food, or aesthetic that will make wedding planning a breeze.


5. Retro-Inspired Wedding

Vintage weddings are all the rage! But instead of going with a cottage core theme (after all, you’re looking for unique wedding themes!), pick your favorite decade and roll with it!

A 1950’s sock hop, ‘70’s style disco, or even a 1980’s throwback wedding will be a hit with guests of all ages.


6. Oktoberfest

Boerne’s German roots make this a no-brainer. (Plus, Oktoberfest got started as a wedding reception!)

Serve up plenty of beer, sausages, pretzels, and—of course—German Chocolate cake!


7. Black & White Wedding

Who says you need color to have fun? A clean palette of black and white is modern and oh so chic.

Not to mention, this is an easy one to pull together. Literally everything is available in black and white—including flowers!


8. Love Is Sweet

Cookies, cakes, candy, oh my!

When you combine weddings with dessert, the effect is always magical. Celebrate your love for your “sweetie” with a spectacular dessert bar and have your first dance to Marvin Gaye’s How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You).



Whatever your vision, we can help bring it to life!
