Your wedding day is one of the most important days in your life so of course, you want it to be special, meaningful, and unforgettable. It’s a celebration of love that you get to share with family and friends, so it’s also got to be special for them. When there’s so much to organize, it can be easy to lose yourself in all the arrangements and forget what’s actually important. The day is going to fly by so quickly, but you want to be able to remember every single minute of it and here are some suggestions for how you can do it.
- Pick an Awesome Location and Venue
There are a million and one different locations to choose from so you can pick somewhere that suits your vision for the day. If you want a grand wedding, then a hotel or country house with a ballroom is one option. However, if it’s a more casual ceremony you’re looking for them why not erect a marquee in a field somewhere with a beautiful view?
- Wow Your Guests with the Wedding Menu
Wedding menus tend to be very traditional with either a sit-down dinner or a swathe of tasty buffet-style snacks. Try to do something different, and everyone is going to be talking about it for years to come. Rather than savory go for tables filled with delicious desserts including cupcakes, donuts, macaroons, and a range of other breath-taking sweet treats that satisfy not only the palette but the eyes as well.
- Find Your Dream Wedding Dress
This is something you’re only going to wear once so make sure you find the perfect wedding dress. It’s not as easy as you think and such an important decision could take a long time, so start looking early. There’s plenty of inspiration in bridal magazines but don’t forget to spend time searching online. Pinterest and Instagram have some great ideas that might help you decide what you’re looking for.
- Choose the Right Photographer
One of the best ways to remember your wedding day is to hire someone to capture every magical moment. An experienced wedding photographer can capture the emotion of your day as well as all those special moments.
- Decide on a Theme
If you find the right theme, it’ll help tie everything together, give your wedding unity, rhythm and balance. Start thinking about it early on as it’s going to take time to get things organized. If you’re struggling to come up with a theme think about your favorite colors, any similar interests you might have, how you both met or any hobbies you might enjoy together.
- A Guestbook with a Difference
A popular feature of many weddings is a guest book in which family and friends sign their names and leave a special message. Traditionally, it’s a simple paper book, but there are other options. If you love to travel get your guests to sign a globe. If you’re both music lovers, there’s plenty of space on a guitar for guests to leave their names.
- Surprise Your Spouse
Is there something your partner loves that would be totally unexpected if you arranged it for your wedding day? Perhaps they’ve got a dream car you could rent for your honeymoon or a song they’d love to hear you sing. An animal lover would definitely be surprised if their best furry friend carried your wedding bands in a bag down the aisle.
Incorporate some or all of these ideas into your big day, and you’ll be reliving the memories for many years to come.
