This should help you narrow down your search easily and of course let you find the best idea for that great event.
1. Era based first, we have the Era based inspirations. Many people are looking back so to speak to the weddings of old and are finding them very elegant and beautiful. That is why this era based or time based weddings are getting popular. It can be a 1920s themed ceremony with all the elegant dresses and fixtures of the time, or it can be a 1980s themed one with peace, freedom and laid back free expression. If you feel nostalgic for an era, you can try this out easily. As long as you stay within the 1900s, the attire and decorations can be easily within reach and budget. Otherwise, if you are really into the deep past, you might need more money.
2. Cultural based
There is also another set based on culture. Besides the traditional western ceremonies, some people opt for themes that are more exotic. Asian inspired, Mediterranean themes, Caribbean themes and even Arabic and Indian themes abound today. These ideas are particularly quaint and memorable for guests, and are affordable especially if you are living in a multi-cultural area. Of course make sure though that you do have some real connection with the culture you are trying to emulate.
3. Season based
Of course, you can also just go back to natural themes. If you are not very meticulous about it and just want something simple and tasteful, you can base according to the season itself. Spring, summer, autumn and winter themes offer lots of great symbolisms and colors that you can play with. Cost-wise this is not really an expensive theme to implement. All you really need to adjust are colors and symbols.
4. Motif based
Some people opt for a theme based on a certain motif or thing. It can be a floral motif for example, or maybe it can be plants in general. On the other hand, maybe you can go for angels, or birds, any kind of important symbol in your relationship can work as a wedding motif and the overall wedding inspiration. The cost of all these of course will vary, but the motif customization might need some significant reserves on resources.
5. Media based
Finally, we have the media based. This can come from movies, television, the Internet and other types of mass media. Many of the younger generations are digging this kind of inspiration and most of these themes are cheap to implement. Take note however that some of these types of themes can be experimental and you really have to work on it to make it nice and elegant.
You can start with these different ideas. Try to see what main category works for you and then just supply in the specifics. I hope that these ideas get you into the right path.
