Wedding Theme Ideas For
Your Special Day

Your wedding day is one of the most important days in your life.

So, if you’re in the middle of a wedding-planning frenzy and can’t decide on a theme, or if you’re yet to get started on locking in details for your big day, the team at Babalou Weddings & Events are here to help!

Green And White

Texture is key for this pared-back palette – think lots of greenery in the floral arrangements, complimented with hints of wood and white.

Enhance the overall look with touches of gold, and include beautiful trinkets like shells, hanging ornaments, and stunning centrepieces.

And, consider incorporating a tonal dress code for your special day to lift the occasion even more.


For a truly magical wedding theme, we can’t go past one overflowing with lush greenery, twinkling lights, fresh sunflowers from Farm & Co, and other botanical elements like fresh fruit platters, and cocktails studded with edible flowers.

Plus, a beautiful, well-lit floral archway or photo booth will be the perfect photo opp for guests.

Pops of Colour

Celebrate your love in full colour! Start with a bold tones for the bridal party (inject colour into the groomsmen’s looks via pocket squares, ties or kitschy socks), pops of pink in the bouquets, and separates for the bride that can be worn again or switched up between ceremony and reception.

Encourage guests to don their most ‘extra’ outfits to match the mood, and make your cake or dessert table the centrepiece with a ‘more is more’ approach – think painterly brushstrokes, geode-inspired confections, or a buffet of sweets.

Coastal Cool

There’s nothing quite like a cool, coastal wedding here at Babalou. With the stunning scenery providing the perfect backdrop, your wedding day will be a dream.

Whether you opt for an outdoor wedding by the beach, or an indoor intimate affair, Babalou is the perfect location to say your ‘I do’s’.

Think pastel tones of blue, crisp whites, and a touch of wood or wicker. And, for a bit of fun, add in a photo booth with beachy-coastal accessories to ensure you and your guests take home plenty of wonderful memories from the day.


There’s no better time to indulge in all-out glamour than your wedding day! Intricate, Victorian-style lace gowns are a key 2020 bridal trend, and long-sleeved styles are perfectly suited to a winter wedding.

Go luxe with chandelier lighting, swathes of draped fabric, and oversized romantic florals like peonies and cabbage roses.

A photo booth with glamour-inspired accessories ensures you and your guests will take home plenty of wonderful memories from the day. Complete the theme with an indulgent layered cake and classic cocktails.
