Theme #1: Stripes
Think about new ways to use your motif. Pinstripes were printed vertically on the invitation, reply card, and reception card for a stylish twist on the belly band.

Theme #2: FlowersThe beauty of a floral motif is that you can choose a signature bloom that perfectly suits your wedding style. We punctuated our plum and lavender wedding with white anemones, a springtime flower that’s both modern and feminine. Our florist combined anemones with lavender sweet pea, plum ranunculus, and lavender hydrangea in a choc ...

Theme #3: DotsPink polka dots -- bright, playful, and fun -- are a perfect motif for a wedding that is super sweet (and far from stuffy). Keep it chic by mixing up the centerpieces. Our florist created five gorgeous floral arrangements in shades of pink and orange to make this table really pop. Combinations of roses, calla lilies, tulips, peonies,  ...

Theme #3: DotsRemember, the look of your cake is as important as the dessert itself! Here, even the cake stand plays off the shape of the fondant pink polka dots on the cake.

Make a good first impression: Get creative with the wedding programs. Thes ...

Theme #4: LettersFor the bridal bouquet, our florist went simple and classic: all white flowers (roses, calla lilies, sweet pea, and freesia). To tie in the motif du jour, we incorporated the same ribbon also used on the programs. Loosely tie the ribbon around the bouquet wrap and let it cascade over the bride’s hands.

Theme #4: LettersWe followed with the wedding cake. Rather than making just one outstanding cake, our cake baker created three table cakes all iced in periwinkle fondant and decorated with white sugar flowers—each sporting a unique monogram. Cake server, Rosanna

Theme #5: FlourishesPerfect for any fairy-tale wedding in a castle, ballroom, or museum, a fleur-de-lis motif is every bit elegant and regal (the symbol is particularly associated with the French monarchy). It can be played up (with gold-gilded details) or played down (go for pastels, like white and baby blue). Setting the tone, this beautifully sc ...

Theme #5: FlourishesThe best thing about a symbol-driven wedding? You can use the accent in unexpected places. Our cake baker covered a three-tiered oval-shaped cake with lemon buttercream and rolled fondant, white royal iced pearl dots, and gold fleur-de-lis molded sugar medallions. Gold Parisian Wallpaper dessert plates, Rosanna; champagne flutes ...
