The big day is approaching. It’s a life changing event, so it’s one that you want to have special significance. That’s why go to all the effort. We’re joining our lives together with someone else’s. It deserves a fair amount of fanfare. That’s why you want to set it apart from others. You want the event to be yours. In this article, we’re going to look at the methods we use to make it ours.
If you really want to make it unique, then you need to start with the very concept of it. Depending on how enthusiastic you are, your wedding can go as deep into themes as it likes to. However, if you’re afraid of being over-the-top, you can still keep it traditional enough. There are all kinds of themes that can done classily, from Grecian goddess to vintage. There are no rules as to what style you want for your wedding. If you’re huge fans of pop culture, there are plenty examples on the internet you can find of ways to incorporate that.
No rules, that is, besides the fact that you’re going to need somewhere to get married. Just like the theme, there are a whole range of different places you can use for your venue. You can get married at Adlington Hall and similar places for a real feeling of class and service. You can get down to earth and arrange a wedding close to nature. Then there will always be those who have dreamt of having it in a church. Find the venue that fits the kind of wedding you’ve always wanted. Elegant. Intimate. Classic. It’s all up to you.
Regardless of what kind of setup you have, flowers are usually going to play a big part in a wedding. That said, there are no specific rules as to what kind of flowers you have or how they are arranged. They say flowers are the language of love, so you might want to go for some that have a symbolic meaning to you. You may have a certain colour theme in mind for the wedding and want your flowers to fit that. The key is to get a florist to work closely with from the beginning of your planning.
The big day isn’t just about the wedding and the reception, either. If you really want to put your style into every aspect of it, you can think about what different kinds of transport to use as well. They may be clichés, but the classics like a vintage car or a horse-drawn carriage will always have their lovers. On the other hand, there are those who like to make an entrance with a bit of a difference. A supercar for those who really want to make an impression on arrival, for example.
A lot of people will put the most focus on the ceremony itself, which is natural. However, you also need to remember that there’s most often a big party following the event itself. If there’s one thing you need for a great party, it’s great music. If you have a theme, you may want a band to fit it. For example, some might like a bit of traditional folk music to go with an outdoorsy wedding. Then you need to choose a DJ who can meet your specific wishes as well as improvise to the situation. Someone who can follow the mood and help the night progress smoothly.
The last thing you need to think about to really make it unique is the kind of memories you take away. For this, you want to make sure you have the right pick of photographers. As well as getting all the classic shots, you want a photographer who can take the occasion to make a real piece of art on your wedding day. Someone with creative ideas and the ability to handle people well. Before you hire any photographer, make sure you get a look at their past work and testimonials.
Remember that, so long as you’re happy, you can go for any kind of wedding you want. Choose what works for you and make it really memorable. There are a lot of different things you can convey with the choices you make. It can feel like a close knit family celebration, an intimate retreat or a grand event. Don’t be afraid to throw your style into it. In the end of the day, it’s about the two of you.
