You don’t want your wedding to be like all the rest. You want your wedding day to stand out as one of the most memorable any of your guests have ever seen. Whether you want your wedding to be a pretty traditional affair or something entirely out of the norm, there are a number of things you can do to make your wedding stand out from the rest…
Unique Wedding invitations
If you want your guests to know your big day isn’t going to be the same old boring event, you need to start with your wedding invitations and save the date cards. Take a look at these unique Paper Themes to see the sort of personalised wedding invitations that will help you announce your wedding in a way that’s unique to you. Or, you could even get crafty and make your own using photos of you and your other half or featuring pictures and words that are unique to each recipient. It’ll be a bit more work, but your wedding will sure stand out right from the off.
Choose a venue with the wow factor
Traditionally, weddings were held in churches or government buildings. Now, there is almost no limit to the kinds of places where you can tie the knot. Tree-houses, underwater hotels, Caribbean mansions, the options are endless, they will elevate your wedding above the rest. Even if you do want to get married in a church, you can still hold the reception in a unique location.
Everyone has a DJ or live swing band at their wedding reception. If you want to ensure your wedding stands out, you need to do something different. Having a band and a DJ might be essential if you want to get your guests up having a good time, but try to include some unusual acts like jugglers, comedians, acrobats or even a petting zoo to make your reception more memorable.
White might be the traditional wedding colour, but if there’s one thing that will make your wedding stand out, it’s ditching the white for a more interesting wedding dress. Pink, red, black – they all make a dramatic impact as you walk down the aisle, and if you’re stuck on white, you can just add little flashes of colour to make things more exciting and show off a bit more of your personality.
Make your bouquet more exciting
Flowers are undoubtedly beautiful, and they set the scene perfectly for a wedding, but even the most unusual arrangements have been done for death. If you want your wedding to stand out, make your bouquet more exciting by using origami flowers, buttons, fabric or even dried flowers. It’ll look just as beautiful, and it will last a lot longer as a memento, too!
Ditch tradition when it comes to cake
Every wedding needs a cake, but that doesn’t mean that your cake has to be the traditional white fruit cake or marzipan. If you love doughnuts, create a tower of them, or if you’re more of a savoury person, create a tiered cheeseboard instead. It won’t be easily forgotten.
