8 Wedding Themes That Are Sure To Blow Your Guests Away, And Yes, There's One For July 4th
Bree Moran

When I was a little girl I always wanted to be a wedding planner! Something about weddings just excited me and still does to this day! I love everything that goes into making a couple have the best day of their lives and a great start to their future together! Even though I chose a different profession when I became an adult, I still to this day fantasize as to what it would be like to be a wedding planner. So with that being said I thought of 8 wedding themes that would be very fitting in today's day and age.

1. Disney/Pixar

You can spin this wedding any way you want. As much as I would love to stick to the traditional Mickey and Minnie theme, I would love a Pixar twist involved, as well! Your guests would love to feel that nostalgia of seeing your wedding venue decked out in Pixar/Disney Decor! The bride is sure to feel like a Disney Princess with this theme!

2. Beach Vibes

This is another one where you can put your own spin on it! Whether it's on an actual beach or just set as a beach theme with starfish and sequin decor, this would for sure be a hit for your guests. Ariel and Prince Eric would appreciate your love for the under the sea vibe on your special day!

3. Carnival/Circus

Who wouldn't want to arrive at a wedding and have a cotton candy machine right at the door of the venue? Oh, and we cannot forget about the popcorn machine! Maybe even invite in some trained professional clowns to put a show on for your guests? Hey, it may not be everyone's cup of tea but it sounds like a fun time to me!

4. Flower Power

Anyone else just obsessed with the Woodstock era? I would love to see a venue decked out with flower lighting, lava lamps as centerpieces, and giant peace sign hung up behind the Bride and Grooms table. Not only would the decor be a great add on but you can play all of the music that was played at America's biggest music festival! Jimmy Hendrix would be very impressed!

5. 4th of July Spectacular

This one has to be my favorite concept! Imagine your bridesmaids dressed in sparkly blue and red and groomsmen with American flag ties! Let's not forget your American pride decor that will sure to be a hit with your guests! I can even imagine the cake layered with red, white, and blue with a star that has an American Flag imprinted in it as a topper! Last but not least let's not forget your sparkler send-off with a big firework show to end the night for your guests!

6. A Night in NYC

This would be a great idea for all my fellow theatre nerds out there! Imagine the whole venue with NYC skyline art, twinkling lights to emphasize the city that never sleeps, and every table could be themed a different broadway show! Your invitations could even be a mock playbill! I'd love to have my wedding party come in with some show tunes in the background!

7. A Night at the Movies

Wouldn't it be so amazing to walk into a wedding venue and see a giant projector playing a black and white film of the bride and groom's past pictures together? How cute and how original! Every table could be themed in a different classical movie! I can even imagine seating arrangement cards in the image of a Hollywood star like all the famous movie stars have!

8. The Traditional Wedding

As often as we see this theme, it's always very nice! One of my favorites. Going to the church and following the wedding party to the venue will never get old because it always is so nice!

In our patriarchal society, men hide from their feelings, but toxic masculinity is literally killing men. They swallow the pain and move on so that they can look, feel, and act "tough."

But, strength is derived from asking for help and voicing your struggle and, trust me, working on your mental health is one hell of a struggle. The real way to "man up" is to acknowledge the downfalls in unjust societal norms. Mental health problems do not mean that a man is weak, they are neurologically-based disorders that require professional treatment.

Sorry, But 'I Don’t Care About Politics' Is Not A Valid Excuse For NOT Voting

The younger generation of voters is so crucial to the upcoming election because our vote is going to shape the world that we are about to enter as adults.


When I ask my friends if they are voting this term most of them respond with "no" followed by an explanation of "I don't care enough," "It doesn't affect me," or "I don't keep up with politics," etc. I get it, as a college student I know that there are many other things to be concerned about like school, relationships, work, and friends. I also understand that keeping up with politics can seem like trying to keep up with an over-exaggerated reality show that has way too many seasons. Not to mention most news stations and websites are biased so it's hard to decipher if what you hear is true or fake.

However, despite all of this annoyance, as the next generation of Americans, we have to remember that we owe it to ourselves, our families, and to our futures to care.

Two of my favorite things in life are reading and books. Obviously, they go hand-in-hand. In my life, I've realized that there is nothing better than learning about the current world or getting fully immersed in another world. Reading can inspire, teach, and entertain you.

For me, the feeling of opening a book and smelling that fresh book smell can't compete with anything else.

20 Books About Latin And Hispanic Heritage Absolutely Everyone Should Have On Their Bookshelf

Any ally of the community needs to be reading these incredible reads.


I go through phases when it comes to what I like to read. I am typically reading two books at any given time: one serious nonfiction and one escapist fiction novel to have on hand and open up depending on my mood.

What remains consistent, however, amongst most of my fellow bibliophiles is a desire to try new and different authors and genres. I, as an Indian woman, have been partial to reading books written by fellow Indian and Desi writers since I first got a library card.

I Asked 46 Women What They Thought About The Term 'Plus-Size', And Here's What They Had To Say

It's 2020, where change is inevitable and norms are not only questioned, but challenged.


We live in a world where it's become customary to push boundaries, break rules, and question standards upheld by society. Though try as we might, some of these standards are harder to conquer than others — body image is one of the top contenders.

For years, the body positivity movement has pushed for the acceptance of all marginalized body types not represented or celebrated in the media. Recently, we've gotten better at appreciating and accepting all body types, but one thing that's still lingering is the stigma of body image in the fashion industry — more specifically, the term "plus-size."
