Weddings are beautiful events that should be personalized and have special meaning to each couple. From the save-the-date and invitations to the ceremony and reception, it’s important to make this day your own. After a while, all weddings start to blend together, so make it memorable for your guests as well! Here are a few tips on how to stand out from the others:
-Everybody loves seeing photos on how you and your fiancé grew up! There are various ways on how to incorporate these photos, you put together a video montage, use them as your table numbers, create a photo album for all to see and add their memories with you or display them on a table.
-For a destination wedding, give wedding favors that will remind your guests of the wonderful time they had at your wedding, write the event details on a postcard from that place, or use pieces of a map in your invitations.
-Share a toast with your guests. Thank them for coming and tell them your story. Make it personal and really connect with your friends and family.
-Worried that the flower girl won’t make it down the aisle on her own? Have a junior bridesmaid pull her in a classic red Radio Flyer wagon.
-For a picture-perfect memory, place your guest book on a table beside a rented photo booth. Guests can paste their snapshot in your book along with their good wishes for your future.
-Opt for a cake topper that says something about you as a couple: your favorite flowers, a monogram, customized bobble heads, or Mickey and Minnie figurines if you’re off to Disney World for your honeymoon.
-Don’t number the reception tables—name them after your favorite date places, pets, travel destinations, movies, songs, etc.
-Create a signature drink or drinks and name them after yourselves or your favorite places or things. Find drinks that match your wedding’s theme and colors.
-Use personalized postage stamps for your invitations.
The most important thing to remember when planning your wedding is to make it memorable to you. It’s your first day as husband and wife!
