Having a great 50th birthday

I'm so excited about my 50th birthday. This is the first party I've had in nearly 20 years where I don't have to organise babysitters! I finally have money to have a really huge party, so we are going all out. I've got a great events organiser coming who has got a cool DJ and a great caterer coming. It's a lot of work organising all of my friends and family, but it's going to be worth it to have all the people I love together for one night of fun. If you are also organising a great 50th birthday party, then keep reading.

Picking a Theme for Your Wedding

A wedding is expensive business, but many people are willing to spend whatever it takes to get the day just right. Having said that, a way to cut out some of the cost without compromising on quality or missing out something important is always welcome.

One way to cut down costs is to hire things like decorations instead of buying them, which also helps with the problem of what to do with it all afterwards if you own it. When you're planning your wedding decor, coming up with a theme of some sort keeps everything cohesive and ensures the venue looks beautiful on the day. Take a look at these theme ideas for inspiration.

Colour

The most simple basis for a theme, but with the ability to be the most effective – and certainly the most versatile. Pick a colour or two, whether it's on the basis of what has meaning for you and your partner or simply what you think will look good, and base the decor around them.

You can include your colour choices as much or as little as you want, using them as subtle accents or bold foundations, and there's a chance to get really creative in how they're implemented.

Like any theme, it's a good idea to extend it from the decor to the clothing of the wedding party, and that's a particularly simple task when it's colour-based.

Vintage

The past is full of stylish inspiration that can be used to add class and glamour to a wedding. Whether it's the 1920s, 30s, 50s or 60s, there are limitless sources of ideas. Perhaps you'd like to go back even further to the Elizabethan or Medieval periods for a fun twist on the ordinary. You could even theme your wedding around a specific time and place, like the Wild West.

One of the great things about vintage weddings is that they can be as serious or fun as you want.

Seasonal

Whatever season you're getting married in, you can easily take inspiration from the natural colours, weather and general feeling associated with it. Whether it's the browns and oranges of autumn, winter's cooler colours, or the flowery lightness of spring or summer, you can bring the season into every detail of the wedding.

Quirky

If you want something really different and memorable, don't be afraid to do whatever makes you happy. Base the wedding around a book or movie franchise, set it in space, insist everyone dresses like knights, or whatever else you feel like doing. It's your day, after all.
