Making your wedding day as special and as memorable as possible does not require you to spend a fortune. By putting in a little extra time and effort into the planning of it, your wedding day can be the one that stands out most in your guest’s minds for years to come. These are some of the things that you should consider…
Choose A Special Location And / Or Venue
The place that you choose to get married at will have a huge effect on how fondly you remember your big day. The location and venue can make or break the event. Consider having the ceremony at a place that holds special memories for you, such as where you were enjoyed fun holidays as a child, or where your parents or grandparents got married. If you feel that it is not essential to get married in a church, then you have some great options available to you. How about getting married on the beach or in a castle? Licenses are granted for marriages to take place pretty much anywhere, so the only restriction is your imagination.
A Wedding Reception With A Theme
Traditional wedding receptions are somewhat boring, and a few years afterward it is hard to recall one that you attended from another one. That is because they are all the same because few people put that much thought into them. You do not have to go overboard, but having a theme, such as ‘summer’ or ‘love,’ and basing the color scheme, food, music, etc. around it makes a big difference. Try something different like hiring a vintage photobooth company to spice things up and make it fun for everyone. If you are stuck for ideas or are unsure where to buy themed items from, then consult with wedding suppliers or look through a wedding directory, and you will be able to get all the information that you need.
Friends And Family Helping Out
Your friends and family are willing and happy to help you in any way that they can, so why not give them opportunities to do so? Instead of them getting you a gift, instead, ask if they can help in a more practical way. There are lots of jobs that they could do, such as driving the wedding cars, making the wedding cake, singing at the reception, etc. Taking this approach will give your wedding a much more personal feel. It also makes friends and family members feel that they are making a significant and memorable contribution to your special day, one that you will appreciate more than getting a new toaster or vouchers for a department store.
Music With A Difference
Hardly anyone can remember the music that has been played at a wedding ceremony or wedding reception because everyone tends to have the same bland choices played in the same bland way. It does not have to be like that though. By hiring a violinist or harpist to play at the ceremony and a small orchestra or folk band to play at the reception, then the whole feel and mood of the event will be enhanced. It does not have to be expensive either, as up and coming musicians are always looking for opportunities to showcase their talent.…
