How to Pick a Wedding Theme

Your wedding is the perfect time to share what makes your love unique. Whether you are college sweethearts or met at your favorite coffee shop, let Paper Source help celebrate your relationship with a wedding that tells your story.

Start with elements that mean something to you as a couple in your everyday life together: Do you both love the summertime or share a favorite sports team? The designers at Paper Source will help empower you to curate elements that represent your style as a couple.

Inspiration can come from anywhere — from your first date all the way to your engagement story — so use personal touches to make your event meaningful. Pay homage to your alma mater by using school colors, or incorporate a Parisian theme if you fell in love in France.

Once you pick a theme, our designers make it easy to tie your style together with patterns, colors, and fonts that carry through from invitations to favors. Use cohesive elements like our elegant fine paper, exclusive Colorscope, or adornments that tie your event together.

From address stamps to table décor and everything in between, Paper Source has the complete wedding package. Our 42 colors and corresponding prints help thread your theme through your wedding from start to finish.

Personalize Your Party

Q: How can we personalize our wedding?

A: Infusing personal style into your celebration can be overwhelming, but making your event memorable doesn't have to be a chore.

A special touch doesn't have to be massive to be meaningful. Try picking a few small, intimate details that will make your wedding look and sound like you. Consider these examples for inspiration:

  • Add the same monogram, stamp or sticker to menus, programs and welcome bags.
  • Use a quote or line from your favorite song to decorate napkin rings and adorn table numbers.
  • Fine paper can be used on anything from place cards to hotel welcome bags.

Inspiration is Everywhere

Q: How do we narrow down our interests to create a theme?

A: Your shared interests help create who you are as a couple. If you find yourself overwhelmed with options, try thinking about what you enjoy doing together every day and work from there. Peruse our designer's Invitation Inspirations, create your very own Pinterest board and keep your eye out for images that speak to you. You will notice themes emerging — whether you gravitate towards a certain color family or if a specific season speaks to you — and Paper Source products can help inspire you for your big day.
