Summary: A wedding day is one of the most important days in a couple’s life – this is the day when they will be starting a new family. Everyone wants it to be an event to remember. With a little bit of effort, everyone can have a unique wedding –just like the relationship.
It is up to the couple to choose whether they want a traditional or a different kind of wedding – the process of planning is to try and customize. Here are a few tips on how to make it the most unique event and also to reflect one’s personality.
Tips for a unique wedding day:
• Picking a theme: A theme brings a sense of unity to the day – try to find the best decorations and the right venue. Whether it is minimalist or rustic chic, the theme should express the couple’s style and will influence planning right from the wedding cards to the food and music.
• Informing with style: How people are informed and invited are the next steps in the wedding plan. Send them out early so that invited parties can block the date. There are so many choices in wedding invitations and it is easy to pick one to suit your budget and personal preference.
• Good music: Not everyone can afford or would want a 10 piece music band – good music makes for a great party. Find a good DJ or musician who will liven up the dance party and take into account guest requests.
• Finding the right space: Try finding something other than a standard conference room at a hotel. Quite a few hotels have great green spaces and lawns – or other elegant spaces. In fact, having the reception on the lawns of a botanical garden makes for a great setting as well – or an art gallery or museum.
• Serving great food: This is one aspect of the wedding that people will remember for a long time. Working with a wedding planner is a good thing as they will be able to find a good caterer to take care of the food or even find the right restaurant. Good prices can be negotiated and with enough advance notice, many restaurants will be able to tailor their menu to serve the varied needs of guests.
• Choosing a Wedding Cake: This is an important part of the celebrations – make sure that the cake, especially if it is a tiered cake, is transported separately and then assembled at the venue to prevent accidents. There are so many great choices in wedding cakes as well – choose wisely and get one within the budget.
• Guest book: Try something new to match the wedding theme. Decorative note paper and envelopes are a great way to get messages, which can later be put together in a scrapbook.
• Photos: Make sure that a photographer and videographer are available to capture the whole event. Guests appreciate getting mementos in the form of wedding pictures or CDs.
