If someone were to ask 6-year-old Tara what she thought her wedding would be like, I probably would have described something pretty close to the story of Cinderella: a castle, a horse-drawn carriage, a gorgeous gown, glass slippers, and, of course, prince charming.

Grown-up Tara still thinks this sounds like a pretty good idea. Why not add a little imagination to your wedding and make it exactly what you dream about? (After all, a dream is a wish your heart makes, right?)

Theme weddings go beyond a basic color palette. They range from classy to fun to downright geeky, and usually tell us quite a bit about a couple’s personality.

Weddings inspired by fairy tales (like this Alice in Wonderland wedding and this Peter Pan-inspired wedding) are like a couple’s retelling of their favorite childhood stories.

There are also music-themed weddings, like this adorable Beatles wedding, and decade-specific weddings, like this 1950s theme wedding.

Some theme weddings get pretty geeky, like this pixellated Minecraft theme wedding (for the non-geeky, Minecraft is a game), and this “geeky elegant dino museum wedding” (including a giant T-Rex skeleton – yes!).

What’s your dream theme wedding? Or how would your 6-year-old self respond to this question?
