15 Unusual Wedding Themes

Have you been searching for an exciting wedding theme?

If you’re an alternative couple looking for a quirky or crazy idea to theme your big day around, then we have a few suggestions just for you! Whether you’re contemplating the idea of a zombie-inspired wedding or a mystical Harry Potter theme, there’s sure to be something that appeals to you below!

 

HARRY POTTER WEDDING THEME

Bouquets made from pages of Harry Potter novels, wands for guests to sway in the air, and Ferrero Rocher Golden Snitches as wedding favours. Perfect Harry Potter heels, Harry Potter cufflinks for the groom, a time-turner necklace for the bride, and the most gorgeous Harry Potter styled cake with edible books!!

Just a few inspirational photos for you to browse so you can concoct your own magical up-do! For another idea, make one of the tables table number nine and three quarters!

PIRATES OF THE CARRIBEAN WEDDING THEME

Themed wedding attire, dark rum centrepieces and a cute cake topper. Messages in bottles, individual guest ships to guide you to your seat, and Pirates of the Carribean look-alikes to add authenticity.

These images may persuade you towards wearing awesome outfits rather than traditional wedding gowns!

ZOMBIE WEDDING THEME

Zombie themed cake, zombie bridesmaids, brain soap wedding favours, skull rings on fake fingers, and blood covered invitations! How gory!

FESTIVAL WEDDING THEME

Oversized balloons, tent marquees, festival signage, festival food, pot plants as table runners, and hay bales! All of which combined into this beautiful sunny summers day wedding! I hope this has convinced you to attempt a fun-loving theme where everyone can loosen up and have a swell time! For another idea, you could hire zoo animals for all the kids to pet and look at!

ALICE IN WONDERLAND WEDDING THEME

Pocket watches, mad hatters tea parties, blue dresses, garden croquet, cake pops and more! Any creative Alice in Wonderland ideas you have CAN come to life, you just need, to believe. Ask guests to bring along their (Cheshire) cats and persistent bunnies so everyone can walk into your wedding and fall down a real life spinning, confusing rabbit hole! For a DIY idea, you could collage an old wooden table with pages from an old Alice in Wonderland book and polish it to add to your wedding props!

DOCTOR WHO WEDDING THEME

A tardis can count as your something blue, old, and new, right? Here are some photos from a Doctor Who wedding! Blue dresses, blue chair covers, Doctor Who badges, bow ties for the men and a little black box for cards to go in! How cute!

THE HUNGER GAMES WEDDING THEME

Mockingjay references, gold rings, Effie Trinket styled hairdos and makeup, Nightlock berries, florally decorated cake and fancy sweet treats – Panem Capital style.

Amongst the chaos and fighting til’ death, welcome your guests into the safest district so they can enjoy the celebration of two lovebirds!

LITTLE MERMAID WEDDING THEME

With this theme, we’d expect a beach wedding, with sparkles and shells all around. To have a beautiful flowing dress to drift in the slight sea breeze, beautiful bouquets with cascading greenery in the style of seaweed and surrounding rocks on the shore, it would surely create a beautiful scene for your wedding photos!

SUPERMAN WEDDING THEME

Touches of red, yellow, and blue, Superman cuff-links, red Superman heels, and a super-awesome printed wedding cake! (excuse the pun!) Such a bright, colourful wedding! Who wouldn’t want bouquets full of such vibrant colours?

GAME OF THRONES WEDDING THEME

When you think of Game of Thrones, your mind may sway towards the idea of a dark, red, bloody wedding. Sway no further, your wedding does not have to look gory or gruesome! Fill your wedding with vibrant red features as shown below to make it look a lot more appealing and elegant!

CARNIVAL WEDDING THEME

Face painting, boxes of popcorn, admit one tickets for seating arrangements, lolly jar favours, colourful makeup and bouncy jumping castles! What more could you want?? This wedding has everything!

MARY POPPINS WEDDING THEME

This featured couple has combined a bit of steampunk into the Britishness of Mary Poppins, which I admit is a little different, but how cool does the groom’s bowler hat look? As you can see in the last photo, the bride DOES have an umbrella. It is Mary Poppins so the magical umbrella is all you need, right??

STAR WARS WEDDING THEME

Stormtrooper signs, x-wing decorations, and stormtrooper boutonnieres are all you need to bring out your inner nerd and throw a fantastic but simple wedding!

ROBINHOOD WEDDING THEME

Bows and arrows, nature-filled wedding decor, green suits, and beautiful rustic touches perfectly embody the theme of Robinhood.

THE WIZARD OF OZ WEDDING THEME

Though the wedding featured below was set at an actual Wizard of Oz theme park, the couple’s decorations and added props were magical! Dorothy’s bright red shoes made the wedding theme come to life!

LORD OF THE RINGS WEDDING THEME

Intensify your theme with props! That’s how these guys did it! Elven style bridesmaids with pointy ears and groomsmen with swords, (or in other cases, they’re simply at the wedding to identify as a tree.) The flowing capes, and Gandalf as the celebrant were the icing on the cake! – so to speak.

POCAHONTAS WEDDING THEME

Gotta love this bride’s Pocahontas styled outfit! Moccasin shoes to show the Native American look, the blue Pocahontas necklace, and the cream coloured strapless dress. The horse in the background and the Pampas grass (the feather looking plants) give a creative effect!

So there they are, 15 different quirky themes to think about. You may even get inspired to come up with a totally different theme!
