Top wedding themes

More than 2300 brides completed our Easy Weddings’ annual survey, which is the biggest wedding survey in Australia. We asked them a range of questions including what type of wedding theme they chose for their big day. Based on data from both our survey and Easy Weddings’ Planning Tools and polls, we have put together a list of the 10 most popular wedding themes of 2016. Additionally, we’ve also included the upcoming biggest wedding themes for 2017.

Rustic definitely reigned supreme in 2016. The wedding theme can be described as having a strong farm, country or garden aesthetic and often features styling elements such as bark, timer, organic fibres, twine and hessian.

The classic wedding theme was the second most popular wedding theme in 2016. Classic embodies all the traditional touches, from the classic cars and limousines, to the traditional white wedding dress, bridesmaids and groomsmen, and decorating the wedding venue with very classic styling elements such as floral centrepieces, chair covers.

The romantic wedding theme was prevalent in 2016. This theme involved a whimsical and slightly ethereal feel and styling features included things like cascading ivy and roses, whimsical wedding dresses and headpieces.

Vineyard or winery weddings were a very big wedding theme of 2016, with couples opting to focus on inviting a smaller amount of guests and giving them a more quality experience as opposed to inviting a larger number of guests.
