Wedding's have been mostly just wedding themed for a very long time. Different cultures have different wedding traditions, but on the whole, it hasn't been that long, history-wise, we've been kicking it up a notch with themed weddings here in Minnesota.

Why Do People Have Themed Weddings?

"Dear James," I imagine people messaging me, "why isn't a "wedding themed" wedding good enough? It was good enough for meemaw and peepaw, why do people have to add another layer?"

I'll be honest. I don't know why they're becoming so popular. I'll tell you another thing. I don't care. The people that love doing it from Rochester to the Gunflint Trail are the ones doing it, and if they're having fun, I'm all for it. Don't be a Wedding Pooper.

Minnesota's Top Ten Wedding Themes

A recent poll discovered the people of Minnesota are traditional, but that doesn't mean they don't enjoy a good, themed wedding! Based on Facebook polls in SE Minnesota, here are the most popular wedding themes in the Land of 10,000 Lakes.

But Really, WHY?

Sheesh. OK, I Googled it for you, and according to the Automobile Driving Museum (I think you'll agree, if anyone knows something about wedding trends, it's going to be the Automobile Driving Museum of El Segundo, CA), here's a more substantial answer.

The primary reason to choose a theme for your wedding is to showcase your interests as individuals and as partners. Regardless of whether you’re a beach or car lover, let it show in your wedding theme.

It also lets people know the type of couple you are, be it romantic or adventurous.

Also, having a wedding theme sharing the joy of your interests with your friends and loved ones. This also makes them more thoughtful about their wedding gifts. It ensures that you get things you truly appreciate. (Source)
