Perhaps some people are drawn to the bittersweet romance between Gatsby and Daisy. Perhaps some people are attracted by the dazzling lights and the feathers which made everything seem so grand and romantic. Whatever the reason, The Great Gatsby has been the inspiration for many wedding receptions.

You can never go wrong with pastel colours. The reason why pastel colours have been so popular among couples is because not only does it brighten the entire place with its light hues, it creates such a romantic atmosphere for everyone to in. Incorporate this pastel theme into your decorations and if the guys are adventurous enough, why not break away from the norm and pick out a lovely pastel coloured tux for yourself?

What we love: The dresses for the bridesmaids always come in one colour and one design, but who doesn’t want to show off and draw everyone’s attention to your lovely sisters and friends? Coordinate their outfits in different shades of pastel for a refreshing change!

A garden theme can give off a laidback and sunny effect for your wedding. Whether it is done in an actual garden outdoors, or with expertly carpeted grass and tons of lovely blooms, the effects are all the same.

What we love: The dainty little flowers add a romantic and adorable touch to the decorations. Being surrounded by nature sure lifts everyone’s spirits!


5. Oriental

Despite all the creative ideas on how to make your wedding memorable and unique, sometimes the best way would be to keep things simple and going back to basics. Having an oriental themed wedding is not only a good way to embrace your roots, but it also takes the attention away from the intrinsic decorations to focus solely on you.

What we love: An oriental themed wedding will definitely evoke a sense of nostalgia, making your big day stand out among the rest!


6. Rustic

Here’s the catch: you want things to look simple and romantic, but you don’t want it to look plain and unsophisticated. A rustic themed wedding will let you have the best of both worlds. While countryside styled weddings are popular in the West, it is difficult to recreate them in Singapore because of the lack of barns and open fields. But with the right touch of flowers and wood, you’re on your way to creating your dream wedding!
