Creating A Wedding Day That Your Guests Will Remember Forever

It seems that often, there are two types of people when it comes to weddings. There are those couples who want a private, intimate affair – sometimes the kind of ceremony when only the immediate family are in attendance, or maybe no actual guests at all. Then, there are those couples who long for a big, flashy wedding, with lots of friends and family around to see them say the words ‘I do’. If you fall into the latter category, you probably see your wedding as just as much about your loved ones as you do about your partner. After all, it’s a chance for everyone to come together and enjoy a great big party, and the opportunity to catch up with people they maybe haven’t seen for a while. But a large majority of your guests will probably have been to many weddings before yours – so what can you do to make your big day stand out among your guests?

Have a theme

Okay, so themed weddings either make you jump for joy or make you cringe until you can cringe no more. But whatever camp you sit in, there is always a way to tie a theme into your wedding day in a way that suits you. It is a great way to grab your guest’s attention and from the outset you know it will be a wedding to remember. You can go as full on or as subtle as you like depending on your own personal tastes. For example, if you are a huge lover of Disney but don’t want your wedding day to be taken over by princesses, fairies and flying elephants, you can inject your theme in a more muted manner. This could be by wearing some Disney inspired jewelry, or even naming your tables after famous films.

Deliver the goods when it comes to the food

Wedding catering is notorious for being typically poor – but many highbrow companies have seen this gap in the market and have seized it with both hands. Browse the market to find reputable  catering services for events and weddings that may be able to help you feed the masses on your big day. Weddings are very long days in themselves, especially for your guests that attend both the ceremony and the reception – so make sure you have some good food and drink on offer to help replenish them!

An amazing venue

They say it’s not about where you are, it’s who you’re with. While this is certainly true for many occasions, on your wedding day, it’s only natural to want to have a great venue at your disposal. Obviously, most people are limited in where exactly they can pick for their wedding as location is usually the prime factor. But, as venues are typically the most expensive part of the wedding package, you need to make sure you get it right. Stately homes and castles are pricey but provide a stunning backdrop to your special day – or why not go quirky by getting married on a boat or outdoors?

This Is The Only Wedding Checklist You Will Need

So your big day is coming up soon? How are you getting on with all the wedding planning? Hopefully, you should have everything under control. It’s understandable if you have some pre-wedding jitters. However, don’t let these add to any stress you might be feeling about all the organization. Need some help? Here’s a wedding checklist to help you get everything done.

The Dress

The wedding dress is the part of the wedding that all brides worry about. Many are concerned that they won’t be able to find one that is flattering. Don’t get so worked up about it, though. If you visit a couple of bridal shops, you will certainly find something that suits your figure. Take your bridesmaids along with you so they can give you their honest thoughts and opinions.

The Venue

Maybe just as important as the dress, you need to also choose your perfect venue. Many people still favor a church wedding, although stately homes are starting to come into fashion. One of the benefits of having a wedding in a stately home is that you can often hold your reception there as well. But how about a wedding in a totally different and unique location? This is a great way to match your wedding to your personality.

The Food

You’ll have to organize a wedding breakfast for your reception. Many people decide on a three-course meal. But these days there are also many couples who want something a bit more relaxed and serve fish and chips or burgers. If you are having an evening party, it is also a good idea to plan some food for that as well. A finger food buffet is the easiest catering for evening parties. The guests will all be dancing and will not expect another big meal!

The Theme

Every wedding needs a theme. This will then help you decide on a color scheme and what kinds of decorations you should use for the venue. Popular themes in recent years have been vintage and floral. Many people who come from the countryside choose a barnyard theme. This is a fantastic excuse for using lots of flowers and rustic decorations. Minimalist styles also work very well at weddings. For this, use neutral color shades and keep table decorations to a minimum.

Evening Entertainment

How do you want to entertain your guests during your evening party? There are a number of common options, including hiring a band or a DJ. Both of these options are a brilliant way of getting your guests onto their feet and dancing! If you want to get the guests involved even more, think about hiring a karaoke machine. Once everyone has had a bit to drink, they will be super keen to get up and show off their vocal talents!

Planning a wedding shouldn’t stress you out! If you use this checklist, then you don’t have to worry about forgetting any of the main things. Take a deep breath, relax, and just focus on enjoying your happy day!
