Most brides think that once they have chosen their colours, booked the venue, signed the vendor contracts, and rented the largest and longest vehicle they could find, they have a wedding that is different from all others. But it takes so much more than that to create a unique and special wedding. Since there is no cookie cutter recipe on how a wedding should look, it is your opportunity to be creative. So have fun with it!!
1. MAKE IT PERSONAL
What represents the two of you? If you both have a love for music then make sure it is a key component in your ceremony and reception.
Perhaps you would like to feature your family in your special day. Why not frame pictures of their wedding day and display them proudly as elements in your wedding decor?
2. SURPRISE AND DELIGHT YOUR GUESTS
At my wedding, instead of handing out plain programs with boring details, I decided to make little booklets for each guest to enjoy while waiting for the ceremony to begin. The booklets contained information on our family members, our wedding party, those who were unable to be there (such as great-grandparents, out-of-country aunts and uncles etc.) and thank-you's. Our guests truly enjoyed reading these while waiting for the ceremony to begin...and many have told us what a special keep-sake this little booklet has become.
3. SWITCH IT UP!
There is no wedding rule stating that you must have 300 guests with a sit down dinner in a grand ball room. Check out these pictures of lovely picnic and outdoor weddings. They are definitely not your typical weddings but they are absolutely adorable and unique. I love it! Have fun with your wedding day and think outside the box. You and your guests will love you for it!
Be creative! Be Personal! Be You!
