6 Ways to Make Your Wedding Stand Out
Your wedding day is a day you’ll remember forever, but will it be something that your guests remember? Considering the number of weddings most people attend in their lifetime, chances are your wedding could end up as another event attended. But if you really want to create a memorable experience for everyone on your guest list, you need to do your homework and find ways to make your wedding stand out from all the others. Use the tips below to help make your wedding an event to remember.
1. Create unique invitations.
We cordially invite you to blah, blah, blah. Those formal types of invitations get lost in the crowds, so do something to make your wedding invitations be unique to you and your event. You can choose a design that mirrors the theme of your wedding or the personalities of you and your soon-to-be spouse. You can also look for fun ways to word your invitations too that make people want to attend your wedding. Since the invitation is likely the first thing people will encounter for your wedding, you’ll want to set the tone appropriately with unique invitations that excite them.
2. Choose a fun space.
Instead of having your ceremony in a church and your reception at a stale banquet hall, consider choosing a fun space for your wedding. For instance, have a western wedding at a local barn, or have an informal wedding outside under tents. You can even rent out a warehouse for an industrial feel or choose a beach-like option for a tropical style wedding. When your space is fun and not your typical church and banquet hall, it will make people remember your wedding over others.
3. Keep it casual.
When weddings are extremely formal, it can make the event seem long and uninteresting. However, if you can do things that are more casual, you will find that the wedding is more fun for everyone involved. For instance, have a friend or relative perform the ceremony so that it’s more personalized to you and your spouse. You should also allow your wedding party to wear more casual-style clothing. Instead of long uncomfortable dresses, why not allow the bridesmaids to wear those that could be used again, or even wear pants if it makes them more comfortable. In addition, instead of forcing groomsmen to wear full tuxedos, why not allow them to just wear dress pants and dress shirts? This will make your wedding party and your guests feel more at ease.
4. Choose the right music.
You know what you like, and you know what your guests like, so why not ensure the music is perfect for everyone? Instead of walking down the aisle to something classic, why not walk down the aisle to a song that fits your relationship or your personality? In addition, let your wedding party pick their songs to walk down the aisle to. During the reception, keep things fun and lighthearted. Don’t bore your guests with music that puts them to sleep; instead, keep things upbeat.
5. Do something different.
All weddings tend to have similar things: a band or a DJ, a photographer or a photo booth, etc. If you really want your wedding to stand out, then it’s very important for you to do something different. This will be totally up to you, but it could be anything from having a slip-n-slide at your wedding, to having a petting zoo, to giving your guests a specific gift. Think about what would stand out to you, but what would also make you happy, and then go with it.
6. Do it for you.
You need to remember that it’s your wedding, so be sure that your personality and your desires shine through. Do not let other people in your family tell you what you should do for your wedding. Choose the colors you want, the venue you want, the date you want, and anything else that will make this day special to you. After all, you are the one who will have most of the memories for the day, so it’s up to you to make all the decisions that matter most to you.
Your wedding is your special day, but it makes sense to want people to remember your day over others they attend. By using all the tips listed in this article, you will find the inspiration needed to turn your wedding into an event that eve
