Greetings from the (still) summery and sun-kissed Greek Islands. I know that you beautiful brides-to-be are currently thinking about the wedding theme "and the perfect dress to go with it"! Barefoot beach elopement versus a Castle Wedding or maybe a Grecian Inspired fete?
A wedding wouldn’t be complete without a theme. Whether you are both very traditional or far from it, there is a theme out there that is perfect for you! Here are some popular wedding themes that never fade! Here is the valuable contribution from Simply Bridal to help you out: Castaway If you’ve ever wanted to be stranded in Paradise, this is a wedding theme for you! This theme has minimal decorations and is almost fuss-free. Celebrate your wedding intimately with just a few close friends and have your ceremony right on the beach! Then kick off the festivities with a driftwood fire right on the sand.

Storybook Romance Many little girls have dreamed of getting married in a castle! The Venetian Castle on Naxos makes it reality. You’ll feel like you’ve time travelled back to the Age of Chivalry in this lovely eight hundred year house in a picturesque Medieval town.

Fit for the Gods If you or your fiance love Greek mythology and Homer, pick a historically significant island like Rhodes. Rhodes once contained the Colossus of Rhodes, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world! Today, it also contains several luxury hotels so you can feel like Zeus and Hera. Also, consider incorporating Greek stories into the fabric of your wedding such as table names for the reception meal.

Everything Blue Something new, something old, something borrowed, and something blue! Everyone has heard of this classic rhyme. While most brides incorporate a bit of blue into their wardrobe, you can also include the deep blue of the ocean or the light blue of the sky! Santorini is especially famous for its gorgeous waters and air.
