We all know the importance of weddings in modern society. Not only is your wedding the most magical day of your life, but what you do on your big day says something about you and your other half as a couple. Most people want their day to be something that their guests will remember for years to come. After all, what’s the point of spending all that money and putting in all that effort on some lacklustre event? With our four tips, you will be able to put together a wedding that will really stand out and show your guests what makes you special as a couple.
The dress is really one of the main focus points of any wedding. Guests crane their necks to watch the bride walk down the aisle, just to get that first glimpse of what she is wearing. Many brides opt for the safe option of ivory or cream, but why not go for something a bit different? Introduce some colour into your gown and do something a bit different from everybody else. Choose a colour that complements your skin tone and hair so that your dress will really be the talk of the town.
Everyone goes to a wedding expecting to have a good dance, so you really do need to ensure that your guests get the chance to let their hair down in this way. If you want to do something a bit different, consider booking a band. Find a band that can cover a range of musical genres, including rock, pop, soul, jazz and even classical. You can show off your individuality whilst ensuring your guests have a great time.
Cakes no longer need to be the traditional three-tier fruit cake with royal icing. Couples really have the freedom now to have a cake that shows off their tastes and personalities. Think individual cupcakes, maybe even doughnuts stacked elaborately or even a wedding cake made out of cheese. Literally, anything goes these days when it comes to your wedding cake. Take a look online – there are plenty of ideas available to help you make your cake stand out.
The ceremony often gets overlooked because people look forward to the party too much. But this is your chance to really make an impression on your guests – and let’s face it, should be the most important part of the day. Think of ways that you can make the ceremony as personal as possible. You could, for instance, write your own vows or add additional features into the running order such as a water blessing or a sand ceremony. Perhaps you could have someone close to you perform the ceremony, or you could consider planting a tree together to symbolise your long-lasting love and the roots that you are planting together. Do something that stands out during your ceremony – we guarantee your guests will love it.
