Your wedding is an exciting event that you’ll never forget. Of course, when you get married, there's some pressure to have a unique event. After all, people have been getting married for hundreds of years and you’ve probably been to a whole bunch of weddings yourself. But this doesn’t mean that your wedding can’t be unique! You don’t have to have the same wedding as everyone else! Here are some tips for planning a wedding that truly matches your personality.
Here’s how to put together a wedding that’s completely your style.
Your venue can help you make a lot of your wedding decisions. This is because the style of the venue will influence a lot of the rest of your choices. For example, if you have your wedding at a historic venue, then the rest of your wedding choices will likely be more classic. A more modern venue leads itself to more contemporary decisions. Plus, the size of your venue will dictate the number of people you can invite, which will affect the look and feel of the day.
Therefore, you’ll want to spend a lot of time thinking about your wedding and the type of venue you want. Do you want a large hall? A more intimate room? An indoor wedding or an outdoor one? Are you looking for something formal or more casual? The type of people that you are your partner are will influence the venue decision. A venue that might be perfect for one couple simply may not be your style, and that’s totally okay!
Your music does a lot for setting the mood at your wedding. You don’t need to have the same old wedding standards if you don’t want to. These days, more and more people are customizing their weddings by creating incredible playlists of unique tunes.
Work with your band or DJ to make sure that they truly capture the mood that you’re looking for.
Once you have your venue, you’ll want to focus on your decorations. Again, the venue itself will have a big impact on your decisions. Some venues simply don’t require much when it comes to decorations, while others are a blank canvas that will allow you to work your magic.
When you are decorating, avoid the temptation to simply copy the styles that you see in wedding magazines and online. Copying ideas straight off of Pinterest, or some other website, isn’t the way to have a unique wedding and it’s certainly not the right route to take if you’re planning on hosting a wedding that’s totally your style. Remember, you don’t have to follow the latest trends or do exactly what all of the “experts” say. You can certainly take some inspiration from various sources, but the key is to add a twist of your own.
Wedding jewelry can go a long way to making your special day incredibly unique. When you’re choosing wedding jewelry, you’ll want to wear something that you feel comfortable in. There is a myriad of different options available, but all of them won’t suit you. If you don’t feel comfortable with your choice, you won’t enjoy the day as much, which would certainly be a shame.
One point that you’ll want to keep in mind is that, in many cases, less is more. You don’t need to absolutely drape yourself in jewels (unless you really want to, of course!) and you might find that choosing a few exceptional pieces will do the job perfectly. When you’re only wearing a few different pieces of jewelry, each one will stand out.
Another great way to customize your wedding and make it truly represent who you are is to choose an incredible menu. There are so many different ways of feeding your guests at a wedding. You can opt for a traditional sitdown dinner, you can have a buffet, you can choose to have a variety of small plates, or you might want to serve a larger course meal. It’s entirely up to you and the style you choose (and the foods you select) will certainly make your wedding unique.
Remember, your wedding is for the two of you. Yes, you’re going to be inviting friends and family and you may want to take them into consideration, but it’s important that you ultimately remember that this is your day. Make it the day you want!
