Everyone wants to have a wedding that sticks out from everyone else’s. There are so many tips and tricks that you can follow that will help to make a wedding as memorable as possible for all those in attendance. Here are some of our best pieces of advice to help make your wedding as unique and as memorable as possible.
Don’t Forget the Basics
First of all, you need to make sure that you don’t forget the basics while trying to come up with the unique aspects. There are so many small things that you need to cover to make sure the wedding is a complete success. This wedding planning guide will cover most of them, but we will go over some of them here too.
For example, you need to make sure that you have a place and time for the actual wedding ceremony to take place. If you are getting legally married, you also need to make sure that all the paperwork is in place and that you have someone who can perform the ceremony properly. On top of this, you are going to need rings, outfits, and more. Though you can put your own unique twists on all of these, it is incredibly important that you have them all in place so you can then focus on the aspects of the wedding that will be different.
Pick a Theme
The fastest way to make a wedding unique is to choose a theme. There are some wedding themes that are incredibly popular – such as Old Hollywood Glamour – but there are also many out there that you could choose that could be a little different. Is there something that brought you and your partner together? This could form the perfect theme for your wedding, and will give you lots of scope to make the day truly unique.
For example, if there is a TV show that you both love, you could use this as the basis of the wedding theme. Many out there have had beautiful weddings already using TV shows. If you are prepared to go all in, you could even pass over traditional wedding outfits in favour of ones from the show! Some happily married couples who fell in love over something like Star Trek have tied the knot in a fun ceremony with outfits straight off the bridge of the Starship Enterprise. You don’t have to go as full force as they have, but you can create some interesting moments by choosing a fun theme.
Find the Right Location
Sometimes, a wedding can be unique and memorable just purely based on the location it takes place. The ceremony and reception could be incredibly classic, but it all takes place in the most unique location you could imagine. This will undoubtedly make the wedding memorable for both the guests and you and your partner.
For example, if you are thinking about going for that Old Hollywood theme, why you don’t look to see if you can hire out an old theatre or a cinema for your wedding. This will offer you all the space you need to create a beautiful day that ties in perfectly your theme. However, it is much different than if you were to simply opt for a country house or some other classic wedding venue.
Shake up Your Outfits
There is absolutely nothing dictating the fact that you need to wear suits and white dresses as the couple getting married. If you don’t want to wear these – wear something else! You can choose to be as fancy or as casual as you want.
The options do tend to be more open to brides than to grooms. If a bride wants to have a unique take on a traditional gown, she has plenty of choices. One of the easiest to make is the colour of the dress. Classic wedding colours are, of course, white or ivory, but some brides choose to opt for red, black, or any other colour you could think of. Add in changes to style such as a two-piece outfit, or even the choice to wear a suit over a gown, and a bride can easily find an outfit that she is going to feel beautiful in on her wedding day.
Another interesting idea can come if you and your partner are from different cultures. Wearing each other’s traditional wedding outfits could be a cute and memorable way to celebrate the two of you coming together. Take the time to find the right wedding outfits, as they can set the tone of the day just as much as the rest of your theme.
Find Interesting Food
Finally, one of the best ways to have a unique and memorable day is to serve interesting and memorable food to your guests. While you will obviously have to account for any food allergies amongst your guests, you are going to have a wide range of foods that you could offer them.
If you and your partner have a particular love for a certain type of food, you should think about how you can incorporate it into your big day. It might not be a type of food that you associate with weddings, but it is something that both of you love. For this reason, it is definitely worth including! It could also prove to be one of the most interesting wedding dishes your guests have. If there is one that is always discussed about the wedding – it is the food.
Planning a wedding takes a lot of time and effort, but you should be able to come up with a lot of things that will make it a day that everyone will remember. Always keep you and your partner in mind when planning. To make it unique, you have to make it perfectly representative of you both as a couple. If you are able to do so, you will be able to pull off a unique wedding that everyone can enjoy.
