Go the Extra Mile with Your Wedding
It is only natural that you want your wedding to be the most amazing occasion as possible. It’s that special moment in life where you and your partner are the center of attention amongst family and friends.
Yet, other than your standard features such as hiring a professional photographer, some fancy vehicle transportation and a luxurious cake, you could be struggling to think of ways that will take your special day to the next level.
Well, do not stress any longer. Below you will find various methods – with all budgets covered – that will benefit anyone that is trying to create a wedding to remember.
Stick with a theme
Going with a specific theme is one way to ensure your wedding differs from the usual proceedings. Now, this doesn’t mean you have to opt for a cheesy or insipid theme. In fact, it could be a unique subject that reflects you and your partner’s personality, or maybe something that is fun and exciting – or a combo of all those aspects! Furthermore, a subtle theme with some unique touches here and there is also worth contemplating.
The idea to make your own invitations is one that could well make an impact a long time before your guests even attend your wedding. That’s because a save the date can be much more than just a concise, formal invite – splash in some originality and creative design, and you have something that creates an impression from the outset.
Personalize the place cards
Sticking with the subject of personalization, your place cards are also a way to do something a little different. That’s right: they can be more than just a way to display where people will sit! Consider adding an individual message with each card, thanking specific guests for their help over the years, attendance (especially if they travelled a long distance) and so on.
Live music magic
Having some form of music is nothing new at a wedding, but going that extra step to get in a professional live band/performer can prove to be a memorable move. Now while hiring the services of a well-known act will set you back a hefty sum, there are plenty of talented independent artists available. Browse music sites like SoundCloud and Bandcamp to find local musicians that will set your event apart from the resident DJ.
Weddings are typically a traditional affair, but this doesn’t mean you can’t unwind with a spot of fun after the ceremony. Think of things like hiring a bouncy castle (for the adults, of course), karaoke contest or having group games that can get everyone involved.
Menu with a twist
Food is something that everyone looks forward to when attending a wedding. However, this doesn’t mean you cannot take it in a different direction to the norm. For example, you might decide to recreate your favorite meals as canapes, or dish up a desert trolley where guests can create their own concoction of sweet treats.
