Planning a wedding is hard work because it’s the greatest and most memorable day of most people’s lives, so it’s important to get it right. Every woman dreams of feeling like a princess on their wedding day, and often let some details for a wedding slip out of their minds. While these details aren’t essential, they could really add a lovely touch to your wedding day, so here are some touches for your wedding that you might not have considered.
Involve your pet
A really cute addition to a wedding that many people are doing these days is involving their beloved pet in the ceremony. For those that don’t want children at their wedding or don’t have any children in their lives to be flower girls and page boys, having their pet walk down the aisle is the perfect answer! You can easily obtain tuxedos or dresses for your pets, and wouldn’t it be a lovely memory to look back on in the photos?
Many people like to do this as a surprise to their other half, so if you’re looking for a way to make your partner smile even more on your wedding day, why not arrange for someone to sort your furry friend out and walk down the aisle with them?
Think about where you’re getting married
In many cases, where you’re getting married can pose an opportunity for extra touches to really make your day amazing. If you’re getting married on a beach or somewhere exotic, you could order fresh Hawaiian leis for you and your guests to wear on your wedding day. They are a beautiful addition to any outfit and would be great to appear in some of your wedding photos!
Or, if you’re tying the knot in church in a small village, you could add something that the local village is famous for to your wedding. The possibilities are endless, so get creative with your thinking and see what you can come up with!
Doing something like this for your wedding day will give you a uniqueness to remember and enjoy for the rest of your lives together.
Add humour to your vows
An amazing addition to any wedding is some humour. You would normally expect to hear some from the best man’s speech and possibly even the groom when standing to make his speech at the evening do. If you and your spouse to be are people who enjoy humour, why not choose to write your own vows and add humour to them? For example, rather than ‘I’ll love you through sickness and in health’ you could go for ‘I’ll love you forever, even if you do leave the toilet seat up’.
These are great ideas because each couple will have funny anecdotes about each other that can really help personalise your special day.
Create your own playlist
Weddings are great because it gives you and your guests the chance to dance the night away with some great music, but isn’t everyone getting a little sick of hearing cotton eyed joe at every wedding that they go to?
Consider sitting down with your partner and creating a playlist that you will both enjoy, rather than relying on a DJ to pick the old school dance anthems for you. You could also add some classics that you know friends and family that are attending will love too! Everyone’s a winner!
Have someone close to you both perform the ceremony
Finally, a brilliant way of really having a touching ceremony is by having someone that you’re both close to performing it. This poses another opportunity for people to grab the hankies as they wipe away either emotion filled tears, or tears of laughter. The great part about it is that you can have your ceremony exactly to yours and your partners taste.
It’s really easy to become ordained, so even if the person of your choice isn’t, they can soon change that online, so consider adding a really personal touch to your ceremony and begin thinking about who would be the best fit for the job.
Consider these touches to add to your wedding for a really personalised day to remember. Don’t forget that nothing is impossible, and you don’t have to stick to tradition to have a wonderful day!
