Here at Sue Gallo Designs, we simply adore wedding themes! Themes set the mood, and let your guests know that they can expect something pretty spectacular when they attend your wedding.
It is wise to incorporate a few themed ideas into your wedding so that the theme doesn’t become overwhelming.

Add that special touch by creating pieces and decor elements that are unique, but that really show off your sense of style.
Here are a few ideas to inspire you. Elements that will bring a whole lot of glitter and sequins into your wedding so as to create an unforgettable sparking affair.
Set the mood for a stylish celebration of your love. Send off your wedding invites with sparkling envelop inserts. DIY tip Using an envelope liner pattern, create your own glitter paper by gluing glitter onto each of the liners before gluing into the inside of your envelope.
