Color themes are safest and easy to choose from. You can opt for light colors if you want a soft romantic type of wedding ceremony, Dark colors on the hand, suits contemporary feel. But the rule is light colored typography on dark back ground and vice versa so that it is easy to read.
- Secondary theme:
This category includes themes like; a touch of culture, a specific era, based on a movie or a movie, Disney based themes, military theme (for example a couple of blue and white strips for a navy theme wedding, beach side wedding (a palm tree, some corals or shells sketched at a corner of the card) and so on. This category has to be dealt with very carefully because no wants a wedding ceremony to look like a kids birthday party or if it too much in the face instead, just a touch of it.
