Do You Need A Wedding Theme?

On 1-11-11 I officiated a wedding at the Lodge at Grant's Trail in St. Louis, MO that had a theme:  Cowboys and Haystacks.

One of the hardest parts of planning a wedding is making decisions.  There are a thousand choices for every aspect of your wedding, and it’s up to you to make the final decision. Just thinking about it is enough to make you dizzy!

Fortunately there’s a way to make many of those choices much easier.  You may want to choose some sort of theme or common style before you get into organizing your wedding.

Deciding early on whether you want a Victorian wedding, a rose-embellished wedding, or a western-themed wedding will help you choose your dress, venue, flowers, and many other aspects.

Decisions that at first seemed overwhelming will become simpler when you have a clear idea of what you’re going for rather than a mishmash of parts that don’t quite come together.

Conveniently located in the heart of downtown at the corner of Fourth and Olive. Don't get this one confused with the big sister by the Cardinal's ballpark.  This intimate site is much like a boutique hotel with an elegant foyer with a stunning chandelier and Steinway piano with the 400 Olive - An Urban Grill.  It has two ballrooms with a touch of golden hues and chandeliers which give historical elegance to a rehearsal dinner, bridal shower, or small reception for up to 40-110 guests.

It is on the top of my list for elopements and small weddings in St Louis.
