But if you are done with the repetitive themes and want to attempt something totally different then continue reading.

It means a lot of vibrant colours. Drapes, Moroccan lanterns, coloured glass et al. You don’t need a formal seating either but what you do need is a beautiful colour palette that has turquoise, gold, shades of blue, black and white. Throw some mattresses and many cushions. Sheesha and Moroccan food cannot be missed out. Don’t forget to ask your guests to turn up in their flowy kaftans and printed shorts!
2. Colour Based

Sonam Kapoor had hers as Rani pink. Request your guests to follow the colour code. Take it to another level by having the entire decor, drinks, food and even party favours in the same colour. Remind your guests to go all out on that colour from head to toe!
3. Destination Theme

If you are planning a destination wedding then arrange for a dress code according to its native. Let the theme excite your guests to bring a lot of culture and diversity to the table. The theme is bound to bring some over-the-top excitement for your wedding.
4. Gangsta Theme

This theme will make sense to you if you along with you husband have enjoyed listening to rap together but it’s alright even if you haven’t. The theme is a badass one anyway and will encourage your guests to bring out their uber-cool side with Tux hats and thick chains. Make sure you’ll scoop in an epic rap battle just like the one on reality TV shows for fun!
5. Hollywood Retro

Time to bring out your inner Betty Davis and Gretta Garbo. We have often had Bollywood and Retro Themes. But Hollywood Retro will finally give your guests a chance to shine in the glam old Hollywood way and dress up like actresses they’ve adored in the past. This one will be quite an interesting one for desis!

We know desis don’t need a theme to get glittery but this time, it’s not an option! Make sure your glitter theme outshines all the other functions. Get your guests to bring out their sparkliest outfits and accessories to the party!
7. Karaoke Night

Have couples sing it out together. Plan it out in a way that involves competitions to get everyone in a healthy competitive spirit. Keep interesting prizes for the teams that win. Don’t let it be just another karaoke night but make it the most memorable karaoke night. Add ridiculous rules like only Bollywood racy songs will be allowed and cheer loudly when the couple is trying to keep pace with “ Ayyo Mora Saiyyan Psycho”.
Try these themes to get a full house and a very memorable cocktail party.
