It is every bride’s prerogative to want to make their day special and unique. You want to ensure that your guests have a fabulous day and you and your partner have one day to remember. Weddings cost a lot of money, so it is important to ensure you get the most from your day. Right now things are hard with wedding planning, and there is a lot of uncertainty, but you can still plan ahead. With that in mind, here are some of the alternative details to make your wedding day unique.
Think of those sore feet towards the end of the night
Any bride wants to ensure that their wedding is a hit with their guests and there is no further indication of this than a full dance floor in the evening. Everyone is enjoying themselves and having fun, but what comes with that is sore feet. So think ahead and order in bulk something like slippers. Guests can then put them on their feets and really continue to enjoy themselves well into the evening. A detail where you have really put thought into how your guests might be feeling.
Be different with your food choices
Maybe you like the idea of food and consider yourself a bit of a foodie. Sometimes the traditional wedding breakfast with your choice of chicken or fish just doesn’t do anything for you. So think outside of the box and try an alternative. Maybe you could have a buffet style, look into a wedding caterer who could bring your vision to life, or even something a bit more quirky like street food trucks offering different options for your guests.
Make your own wedding invites
Wedding invites are fast becoming a huge part of any wedding preparation and organization, so you may want to carry on with this trend and create your own. Whether you just design them and have them printed, or choose to put them together yourself, the invites can be a great way to add a personal touch to your day. It is also an area that you can save money on and the theme can be translated to other aspects of your day such as table names and place settings.
Consider alternative wedding venues
Maybe you want a different style of wedding altogether, boycotting the traditional hotel option and trying something new and exciting. These days people are being as unique as ever when it comes to their wedding day. It could be that you choose your local village hall where you can decorate it as you please. Or maybe a field where you hire a company to put up teepees and tents for a more relaxed and boho feel to your day.
Transport your guests to Europe (without actually leaving your state!), by opting for a Tuscan-style venue surrounded by stunning countryside. When you’re looking for wedding places, consider how the venue makes you feel when you walk in. As soon as your guests enter your chosen venue, you want them to feel a sense of magic in the air. Some of the most incredible venues are tucked away out of sight, so make sure you consult an experienced wedding planner or browse the internet for unique ideas you may not have thought of. A beautiful outdoor space for memorable photographs should be high on your priority list when discovering the perfect venue for your wedding day. It may seem as though there are lots of boxes to tick, but these small details will help you and your guests experience the best day possible!
Look at different ways to entertain your guests
Finally, look at alternative ways to keep your guests entertained in the evening and even during the day between the formal aspects of the wedding. The wedding DJ is still a great option but instead maybe add a band into the mix first. Many offer band and DJ packages giving you the best of both worlds. Or perhaps make your meal a little more entertaining with singing waiters.
Let’s hope that this has given you some ideas to help you make your wedding day unique.
