For some of us ladies, the ultimate dream is to have a fantastic wedding day. It’s right about now (in our late twenties) when some of the people around us start to get serious about marriage. If you are one of those people, you might be wondering how to make your wedding day special. You don’t want a bland ceremony that everyone forgets. You want to plan an incredible day that your guests will talk about for years to come.
Get the ultimate dress
Let’s talk about the most important thing first – the dress. It is crucial that you find the perfect dress so that you can walk down that aisle looking amazing. If you want to do something special, you can get a bespoke piece from a tailor. Gather lots of photos of dresses that you like (flick through some wedding magazines for ideas), and take them to a tailor. He or she can use them to make the ideal dress for you.
Choose a unique venue
Of course, you can book a wedding in a traditional venue, such as a church, but why not go for something a little different? Most venues will offer a wedding service, and so you have your pick of thousands of places throughout the country. You might want to pick a place that is meaningful to you and your husband-to-be. For example, you could host your wedding in the same place you had your first date. We got married at my family villa – which is where we took our first holiday together very early in our relationship (2 weeks) with our friends.
Break the boundaries
If you hire a wedding planner, they will try to take control of every aspect of your wedding. You don’t want that, and you don’t need it either. Instead, you should make all the big decisions when it comes to your wedding. Ignore what people tell you – this day is your wedding day, and so you get to call all the shots.
Hire music (that you love)
Everybody knows that you need a band for your wedding reception, but what type of band will you choose? Much of the time, people pick music because they think that it will please everyone. Hiring a band who play bland love ballads is not the right thing to do for your wedding. You should get someone who plays music that you and your partner like. For example, if you love rock music, why not hire a local rock band? This tip might sound risky, but it will pay off.
We like a lot of rock and metal songs, which we knew would not get people on the dancefloor – instead we found String Quartet covers of our favorite songs and played them while everyone had drinks after the ceremony.
Get awesome photography
You want everybody to remember your wedding day for the rest of their lives. These days, there is a trend of having some fun when it comes to your photography. You can get your photographer to come up with some awesome ideas for your wedding day photo shoot. You should also ask him or her to experiment a little when it comes to wedding photo editing. If your prints are 100% individual, you will find that they attract a whole lot of attention. Look for an expert photographer who shares your wedding vision.
Surprise people at the reception
If you want to make sure that everybody talks about the reception, you need to surprise people. You might want to plan a fantastic dance routine or have a special guest turn up to give a speech. Think about ways you can impress people at the reception. If you can think of something incredible, you can make it a reality.
Start planning well in advance so that everything is perfect when it comes to the special day. I hope these tips help you to make the most of your big day. Come back again soon for some more awesome advice!
