Arranging your big day is fun, but it also demands careful consideration, whether it’s choosing a budget, a location, or who to invite. Many couples who are engaged understand that while they wish to be married according to tradition, they may not necessarily desire a conventional, traditional wedding. Here are some ideas for differentiating your wedding from all the others you’ve attended throughout the years.
One option to make your wedding day extra unique is to get married abroad. There are many possibilities available, from a low-key isolated elopement with just the two of you, a romantic retreat with your loved ones, or a large family wedding abroad, so you may either return to a location that holds special meaning for you both or select your dream place for your ceremony. Just make careful to research the country’s legal procedures to ensure that your marriage will be recognised when you return home.
Make Your Wedding Personalised & Unique
Making your wedding day special is easy with a themed wedding. Beyond that, the world is your oyster! Just make sure that any theme you decide on will be something you and your partner will still cherish years from now when you reflect on it. Your theme could be based on something that is meaningful to you both deeply, such as your mixed cultural history, or you could choose something amusing and light-hearted, such as a favourite book or Hollywood blockbuster. Along with hiring a mobile wedding bar, fun fairs, and paradise weddings, weddings themed around holidays like Halloween and Christmas are also likely options.
White Dress out the Window
It’s fantastic if you want to wear white, but don’t feel compelled to do so just because it’s the trend. Many brides feel they don’t look good in white, while others object to the historical associations of white with virginity or chastity. By deciding without the huge, white dress, you’ll probably save money that you can use to fund other components of your wedding day or put aside for future expenses.
Making the decision to wear something particular to you also enables you to fully express yourself on your special day. Not to mention, you’ll likely feel more comfortable too! If you choose something colourful instead of the large white dress, you may be wearing some seductive lingerie underneath your attire rather of cramming yourself into an ivory corset, which is frequently impractical and necessitated by the need for specific undergarments to keep everything in place.
At Your Gathering, Provide a Buffet
A sophisticated, sit-down three-course lunch may seem stuffy and out of date to some couples planning weddings. A sit-down supper also requires planning seating arrangements, deciding whether to have a head table or a children’s table, and deciding whether your friends and their plus ones may sit together. In contrast, a buffet-style reception is considerably more informal and encourages conversation.
Embrace Pets at Your Wedding
Our canine companions have traditionally been excluded from wedding festivities, but why should your cherished pet be left out of one of the most significant days of your life? There are a few extra considerations to make when planning a pet-friendly wedding, but as long as your dog is unfazed by the change in routine, you could include them (or any other furry friend) in your marriage ceremony!
