What's in a Theme?

To get your gears grinding and your heart pumping with excitement for our nuptials, we're gonna spill a little secret. Our wedding has a theme. And it is AWESOME.

What could it be, you ask? The Gay Nineties? New Wave? One Night in Bangkok?

Well, close.

Our theme is... PURPLE RAIN.

Say, what?!?! Yes. Like the movie, circa 1984, starring his royal badness, Prince. But, what's in a theme?

We originally were thinking more traditional frou-frou blah. In fact, somewhere between no theme and Purple Rain existed Monet's Waterlilies. Now, no offense to Monet, but his waterlilies ain't got NOTHIN' on Purple Rain.


Our colors are dark purple (obvs), and light green as an accent. You can choose to embrace the theme, or ignore it. Although, I can guarantee you'll have MUCH more fun in purple.

Other ideas for you to run with: lace. Pearls. Crushed velvet. I'm gonna throw this out there - best Prince gets a prize.
