Compile a list of their leisure time activities，which will be the basis of your party. Be sure to include the list with each invitation, carefully delineating who likes to do what. Maybe they both enjoy gardening, hiking, skiing, golfing, tennis, or bike riding. She may also like to sew, knit, or paint where he is the bom fisherman. Knowing what they enjoy will supply you with endless decorating ideas. You can be as elaborate or as simple as you wish. Encourage your guests to bring small accessories and if the selections are funny, so much the better!

As of these days, there are about dozens of wedding themes to select from. There are traditional themes, modern themes, culture based themes, and so on. When I had my wedding, I always knew itís going to be Asian inspired. My best reason was because I was born Asian and my husband has Chinese ancestry too. We had no doubt choosing it because weíre both proud as Asians. Now, make sure that you and your partner are in harmony of the reasons and purpose of selecting your wedding theme.
