Your Guide to Some Pretty Awesome Wedding Themes

As the leading providers of wedding catering in Philadelphia, we’ve helped hundreds of couples tie the knot over the last 40 years. With so many themes to choose from, we thought we would share some of our favorites with you. This piece will offer breakdowns of some popular wedding themes to help you make an informed decision for your big day.


Think of Oscar-night red carpets and after-show parties as the inspiration for a true glamour-filled wedding. Chic outfits, sweeping hairstyles, and red lipstick combined with high-class decor will give you a dazzling wedding day.

Glamorous weddings often have elegantly draped fabric linens, flower walls, and beautifully prepared food. The decor ranges from over-the-top extravagant to neutral minimalist. You may also consider wowing guests with something out of the ordinary, like a live performance or an orchestra.


Modern weddings are all about simplicity. Design lovers and city dwellers love a formal and straightforward celebration that has exquisite touches to give the day character.

Playful, sophisticated fashion, with streamlined color schemes, works incredibly well. Many people opt for specialty cocktails and unique menus to add a delicate twist to the occasion. Many venues complement this style of celebration; one of the most popular is a loft.


Retro is always a popular choice for a fun-filled wedding celebration. It gives the guests and special couple an excellent opportunity to dress up and wind down. Think Grease meets Mad Men in these American Bandstand-era parties. 

We have seen some great retro celebrations that utilize neon and pastel colors to set the stage. Sometimes throwback details like cream sodas, old neon lights, and an old-fashioned jukebox set the scene for you and your guests.


This elegant type of soiree is the epitome of southern charm. Fantastic foods, sweet refreshments, and soft florals are the big players in this wedding theme. 

This type of celebration means pulling out all the stops. We recommend gloves, bow ties, craft cocktails, delicious food, and traditional place settings. All white flowers, combined with sweet personalized details, help to bring the day for life.
