Your wedding day is your day. Do not hand it out to anyone.
Well, what I mean here is, do not let those boring traditions or customs steal away the glory and excitement of your big day.
Instead, snap out and step out. Take the matter into your own heads and carefully plan your wedding just as you and your significant other would want it.
Here are a few leads in case crossing the traditional lines is a bit too challenging for you. The approaches mentioned below will help you make your wedding unique and the sweetest memory that it ought to be.
Begin adding the unique touch to your wedding right from the invites. Instead of using the generic, standard templates available online or at stores, hire a graphic designer or an artist to design your wedding card as per your preferences. You can opt for a color that matches your décor theme or perhaps a color that represents the bond you share with your significant other. You can even include memorable pictures or graphics representing you two or the things that feel important to you. Although this may cost you slightly more than the generic prints, I tell you it will be money well-spent!
Your guests will be eyeing the altar. Your most memorable moments will be photographed at the altar. You will step into your new life at the altar. So, naturally, this is the aspect of your wedding that most demands your attention.
You can personalize the décor, so this key point of your wedding venue radiates the strength of your bond. Some of the most popular ideas include tropical white curtains, greenery-covered chuppah, floral-covered chuppah, an iconic tree, laser-cut background, etc. Or perhaps, you can have white or deep red flags marking the area of the altar in a circle to add a rather dramatic touch.
Perhaps, the best way to make your wedding unique is to surprise your significant other with a present. This surprise could either be something that represents your love for them or something that they had on their wish list for so long. With that said, it can be both material and non-material.
If nothing else, you can surprise your significant other solely by taking care of their favourites when buying the wedding ring. To get a lead on this, review a wedding or engagement ring guide online. In this way, you’d know all your potential options beforehand. And so, you’d be able to make an informed and well-thought-out decision.
Honestly, everyone’s sick of eating the same thing over and over again at each wedding. And we bet you are too. So, when placing an order for your wedding guests, explore all the options you have. Try to arrange dishes that are better suited to the season, your range of guests, and offer scrumptious and exciting.
Apart from the Altar, your wedding vows hold a key position in your wedding ceremony. So, make sure you review these and add in your will and wishes as well. You may need the help of your officiant when making these changes.
Similarly, you can be creative with the community vow as well. Instead of asking a plain “Do you take this person to be your husband/wife?” Your officiant could ask “Do we encourage their love?”
You can even get the cards that list the vows personalized and customized. This is a fond memory that’ll you’ll be carrying and keeping along.
Another way to add a unique edge to your wedding is to include your pet in the wedding. After all, the little soul has been with you for years and surely deserves some degree of recognition and participation on the biggest day of your life. Your pet could walk down the aisle with you. Or perhaps, you can ask a friend to keep your furry pal in their lap during the ceremony. Cat or pet carriers are good options too.
To sum up, the ways to personalize your wedding ceremony are endless. Even adding a guest-specific thank you note at the end of the ceremony will make it unique and custom. The same applies to your menu, as mentioned above. So, when you finally settle things and make final decisions, consider all aspects and question how you can change it per your preferences and if it’s worth customising.
