Wedding Themes: Ancient Worlds

By: Kristina Kittelson, Editor, AllFreeDIYWeddings

Traditional Valentine's Day Bay Leaf CrownLet's face it: everyone's having a rustic or vintage wedding. The best thing about wedding themes is that nearly anything will work as long as you can find the right decor and attire. For an ancient worlds-themed wedding, nothing is in short supply. Your wedding will call to mind the towering concrete pillars and marble walls of Rome and Greece no matter what setting in which you hold your wedding. Prepare to have just the most awe-inspiring and out-there wedding of your time!


In ancient Rome, Saint Valentine would marry people in secret when the act of marriage was outlawed. It's a romantic (pun intended) concept, and many people love the idea of a suppressed love winning in the end. Besides, let's be honest: ancient hairstyles and attire were just completely breathtaking. With wedding themes like this, your wedding will be both beautiful and meaningful, remembering the hardships for love in the past and celebrating the success of love in the present.

Whoa, what a unique wedding theme! I've never seen a wedding like this, but I think it's a great idea. I mean, who doesn't want to look like a Greek goddess on her wedding day?

OMG. I have never heard of this type of wedding actually being planned, but I'm all on board for this. I love Ancient Greece so much, and some of these projects are simply divine. I must pin these for later. Thanks!

I have never seen a wedding like this before, but I for sure like the theme. Such an elegant idea. I bet it would be great for a beach wedding.
