How to Host a Theme Wedding at Redcliffe

Weddings & Romance

Posted 09 January


Theme weddings for so long seemed like an avenue that only the bohemian gypsies pursued on their special day.Times have now certainly changed as theme weddings are emerging out of the niche landscape and becoming a trendy way for couples to get married. Luckily for us, the possibilities for theme weddings in Moreton Bay Region are endless. With our scenic hinterland and bayside areas, couples can bring to life any number of theme wedding ideas, from Gatsby glamour at Glengariff Historic Estate to more relaxed, budget-friendly, bayside celebrations in Pelican Park. Here are the essential questions you need to ask if you feel like letting your freak flag fly, on your wedding day.

#1. Where can I tie the knot? 

Dolphins Leagues Club is a very good option for on-theme weddings as the venue offers 3 kinds of wedding packages and 5 kinds of function room for hire with each tailor made to fit the needs of different couples. Each package and room can be tailored to fit your desired theme. The most popular theme of late, seems to be the 1920s bride. Think The Great Gatsby, the art-deco movement and of course, the new woman of the Jazz age i.e. the flapper.

#2 How can I bring my wedding theme to life?

With the help of Funcionz Events, of course. Now that you have got your venue sorted, let’s focus on the props necessary for any given theme to appear as authentic as possible. For example, you cannot have a 1920s themed wedding without the bells and whistles that effectively reflect and replicate the ubiquity of the grandeur of the era.

It’s not an easy thing to pull off but luckily the folks at Funcionz Events know their stuff well. They provide unique and beautiful props for hire, they believe can be a talking point for many years to come. They also provide experienced wedding stylist services as part of the numerous wedding packages they offer.

#3 What should I wear?

J&R Formal Boutique will help you pull off your dream theme attire.

The clothes you wear are as important as the rest of the elements of your special day. After all you just can’t go the entire nine yards to create the perfect ambience and suddenly decide to scrimp on your outfit.

Luckily for you, J&R Formal Boutique houses everything to satisfy your needs. For a theme, as unique as the 1920s for instance, you might perhaps want to go for their custom option and have them create something specifically for you.


#4 What about the finishing touches?

Couronne Hair & Beauty are your primp and prep stylist specialists.
