Things to Consider When Planning a Themed Wedding

Themed weddings can be an interesting idea. They can be wonderful spectacles, intertwining the theme with the personalities of the happy couple to facilitate a truly unique, romantic occasion. Or they can be an absolute horror show (in some cases quite literally!).

Organising a regular wedding usually involves significant expense and effort, and arranging one around a set theme can add on plenty of extra work. It can all be worth it in the end, but there are a few important elements to consider before going ahead.

Are You Sure?

Your wedding day is supposed to be the most magical, memorable and important in your life. Do you really want to look back on it and regret making your vows dressed as Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker? But, if such a theme brought the two of you together, then it can be a fitting way to commit to each other and a beautiful thing when done well. Seriously think it through beforehand, though.

The Venue

Whatever theme you decide on, finding the perfect location to suit your decorative type is a necessity. For many a classy venue such as the incredible spaces on offer from One Events provide a great option, with varying sizes and interiors that are highly flexible and can be rearranged for modern, traditional and alternative styles. An outside reception can be more suitable for some, especially if a river or boat are involved in any element, though if you live in England you will have to make alternative arrangements for the ceremony, as weddings cannot legally be performed outside.

Dress Code

Depending on your theme, it can be wither easy or much harder to find a wedding dress which fits in with the theme while still obviously being a wedding dress and not fancy dress attire. For this reason, it may be sensible not to choose too extravagant a theme. A themed dress is also likely to cost a bit more than a traditional wedding as, if you can’t find anything suitable off the peg, you’ll need to arrange for the design and manufacture, as well as organising the groom’s outfit along with bridesmaids’ and groomsmen’s attire. Then there’s the issue of getting all your guests to dress appropriately – make sure to put the dress code on the invitations, but don’t be too upset if some guests don’t arrive in character.


From the drinks offered at the bar to the main meal and of course the cake, if you want to really stick with a particular theme a lot of attention needs to be paid to these areas too. Arranging a specialist cake shouldn’t be much more hassle, but the seating, décor and actual menu may present a few problems. Still, like any wedding, as long as everything is planned well in advance and done tastefully there’s no reason a themed wedding won’t be a success.

Tips to Fit into Your Wedding Dress More Perfectly

Every bride wants to look her best on her wedding day. Many will diet like crazy before the wedding to fit into their wedding gown and then feel weak and uncomfortable on the big day. Don’t be one of them!! An easier and healthier way to be sure you fit into your gorgeous wedding dress more perfectly is to use an ItWorks! Skinny Wrap.


The Skinny Wrap is the innovative contouring wrap that literally shrinks flab and fat anywhere on your body from your neck down. The It Works Skinny Wrap firms, tightens and tones by applying a botanical cream that includes natural ingredients such as rosemary, eucalyptus, and magnesium to the areas you want to shrink. You simply wear the wrap for 45 minutes and BOOM, you see results!



One box of Wraps contains four wraps, which can be used every three days (72 hours)! You will lose extra pounds; tighten loose skin and firm flab without starving yourself. The wraps are easy to move in and are comfortable, allowing you to do all of the last minute things before your wedding, like packing for your honeymoon! Your body will look even better 72 hours later, and the wraps results are as permanent as you make them! Give yourself—and your groom—your best body with a safe, natural product that:


  • Tightens, tones & firms flab and skin
  • Minimizes cellulite appearance
  • Improves skin texture & tightness
  • Made with all natural ingredients
  • Can be used on any area of the body
  • Helps reduce stretch marks


ItWorks! Skinny Wraps do not leave a mess and are this easy to use:

  1. Open one pouch per person and unfold
  2. Apply the skinny wrap to the area you want to reduce with the botanically-based lotion touching the skin
  3. Smooth out the Skinny Wrap to ensure good contact and penetration
  4. Secure the Skinny Wrap in place with plastic wrap, elastic bandages, or Fab Wrap
  5. Wear for a minimum of 45 minutes and up to 5 hours
  6. Drink 2-3 bottles of water
  7. Remove the Skinny Wrap and discard (wraps are only to be used once)
  8. Rub any remaining lotion into skin
  9. Do not rinse, shower or work out immediately after wrapping. Allowing the cream to penetrate the skin delivers optimal results, which will continue to work for 72 hours after the wrap is removed.
  10. Drink at least half of your body weight in ounces each day


Every bride wants to look even thinner and more toned on one of the most special day of a girl’s life. With the Skinny Wrap, you will walk down the aisle with a tighter tummy, more toned thighs, a minimized midriff, and banished bat wings and back fat! Wherever you have loose skin or extra flab hanging about, our Wrap will minimize it! You’ve thought of every detail; now make sure your trousseau includes Skinny Wraps!


And, don’t worry if the wraps aren’t what you’re looking for! We have way more than just Wraps! If you are worried about the length, thickness and health of your hair for your BIG day… don’t be. Our Hair Skin Nails supplement has you covered!


The fear of getting a blemish, having dull looking skin, and noticeable fine lines and wrinkles is definitely natural, but with our amazing skin care line including our Exfoliating Peel, Facial wrap, cleanser, toner and day and night creams, your skin will do nothing but glow!


Are you concerned about your cellulite, spider or varicose veins, or dry skin? Our Defining Gel minimizes the appearance of those tough problems as well as softens, hydrates and tightens your skin.
