Among these ideas, a dolphin theme wedding may symbolize the joy and playfulness that you want to embody your marriage.
Wise, freedom-loving good luck charms, dolphins are a wonderful addition to your event. When attempting to incorporate a dolphin theme into your wedding plans, consider focusing your efforts in the following areas.
- Paper Goods
- Wedding Attire
- Honeymoon Plans
Your wedding announcements are a great place to start sharing your theme with your guests. By choosing dolphin clipart images and invitation templates, you will be able to create your own unique project. RSVP cards, Thank You notes, stationery, reception menus and wedding programs can all be produced with your home computer, specialty papers, an inkjet printer and downloadable images, WordArt and templates. Professional quality and an original product will be the result of your time and effort.
When decorating for your wedding, you need to focus on two main areas: the ceremony and the reception. Your venues for both will dictate how much decorating is needed or desired. The ideal setting for this theme would be an outdoor wedding in a tropical location with a lagoon filled with dolphins. Since the likelihood of this being the case is remote, you may have to improvise.
Dolphin statuaries and unity candles can be used at either an indoor or an outdoor wedding ceremony. For your reception, have a dolphin ice sculpture as the centerpiece of your buffet table. Champagne flutes with dolphin stems can be a creative touch, as well as dolphin placeholders and dolphin printed napkins.
Check around your local area and you may locate a park with a dolphin themed fountain. This would be a wonderful setting for your ceremony and reception, reducing the need for further decoration.
If you will be using banners for your wedding reception, you can download dolphin images and print them on iron-on transfer paper. Take your images and iron them on to canvas banners for an easy do-it-yourself decorating project.
Inexpensive dolphin favors can easily be obtained by ordering online. Favor ideas include:
- Pewter or silver finished dolphin bottle openers.
- Dolphin wine bottle stoppers.
- Etched glass votive candleholders with a dolphin design.
- Dolphin topped chrome bells.
- Miniature dolphin themed photo frames.
- Dolphin key chains.
- Homemade Dolphin stationery sets, made using clipart and specialty papers, can be presented with a special pen.
For your wedding cake, consider a blown-glass dolphin cake topper. Whether you choose a single dolphin or two dolphins that appear to make a heart shape as they kiss, this is the perfect way to compliment your cake and your theme. Seashell or wave shaped frosting decorations along with flower accents will add additional interest.
Your wedding gown can also be a representation of your theme. By adding beads or sequins in a dolphin shape to the bodice or train of your gown, you will be continuing your theme into your bridal attire. If you are looking for something a bit more subtle, consider wearing jewelry that matches your theme. Have your bridesmaids wear dolphin earrings or necklaces, carry handkerchiefs with dolphins on them or carry bouquets with dolphins printed on the ribbon accents.
For the groom and his groomsmen, bow ties with dolphins on them are available, or they can wear dolphin printed ribbon in their boutonnieres. Dolphin tie tacks and cufflinks are an expensive but classy option.
If your budget allows for an expensive event, consider an ultimate dolphin themed destination wedding on the island of Oahu in Hawaii. The Kahala Mandarin Oriental is a premiere resort hotel where you can have your wedding and then spend your honeymoon swimming with the dolphins.
If the idea of adding a fun-loving symbol of harmony and wisdom to your nuptials warms your heart, consider a dolphin theme for your wedding.
