While I don't think that weddings necessarily need to have a theme, one jumped out at me as being perfect for Phil and me: books! We are both avid readers so it's the perfect theme for us. Plus there are so many cute ideas out there on pinterest and such.
Here are a couple of ways we are incorporating our book theme into the wedding:

The photo is a little blurry, but you get the idea! I am so happy with how these turned out! Luckily a good friend of mine does graphic design on the side so she designed these for us and did an amazing job (Thanks, Amanda!!).
To keep the cost down, we are doing some DIY candle projects for centerpieces instead of buying flowers as the cost of flowers adds up so dang fast. Here are a couple of project I'll be working on this spring, with the help my sister-in-law and some friends.
I'll also be using stacks of vintage books on tables as part of the centerpieces.
I'm really excited to see how it all comes together!
If you are married, did you have any sort of theme for your decor? What were your wedding colors? Ours are navy, gold, and light pink.
