Of course, there are traditional guidelines for a wedding that can help the occasion to run as smoothly as possible: ceremony, reception, venue hire, guest list, and so on. However, how do you make your wedding stand out from all the rest? The key is in the details; the little forget-me-nots that speak openly and lovingly of the very personal union that is is being celebrated. So you can wow your guests and communicate your individual wedding story, we’ve put together our 7 wedding day details you don’t want to miss out on!
First impressions are crucial! Mark the space of your celebration by giving your guests a magical entrance to your wedding. Go one step further by personalising your entrance to make yourselves and guests feel at home. Hang lanterns in your favourite colours, or drape fairy lights for a night time setting. Utilise flowers and other easy-to-manage decorations to paint the entrance in just the way you want.
2. Light it up
It’s your big day, so why not have your name up in lights? Light Up Letter Co specialise in lighting up special events, such as weddings, with their large light up letters and numbers. Nothing says happy couple more than a giant, light-up L-O-V-E across the celebration space.
3. Photo booth
Another great way to personalise your event is to hire a photo booth. Modern photo booths offer an array of options that will make your photographs stand out from the rest, such as props, personalised photo strips, and much more. What’s more, photo booths give guests the opportunity to take a tangible, personalised memento of the wedding home with them!
4. Personalised favours
Of course, favours aren’t necessity. However, if you’re looking to give your guests a gift from the wedding to go home with, try personalising them. A good idea is to personalise the glasses that guests will be drinking with at the wedding, for example personalised champagne glasses inscribed with the happy couple’s initials. Not only will your guests get plenty of use out of the gift, but they will remember where it came from for years to come!
Lending a careful eye to the bride and groom’s wedding chairs can turn a drab reception into a dazzling one. Decorate the chairs according to the overall style of the wedding. For example, if you’re choosing a rustic country wedding, try decorating the chairs with crisp linen, and wooden nameplates. If you’re choosing a seaside ceremony, why not embellish the happy couple’s thrones with seashells, sand and driftwood.
6. The exit
The exit is the final detail of your wedding that your guests will aurally feast upon, and for this reason it must not be disregarded! Make sure your guests see the couple out of the celebration in style. Reflect your lifestyle and wedding theme by personalising the exit using rose petals, fireworks, or a special car that reflects you and your partner’s union.
Before you dive head first into your wedding plans, take a step back and think about all the small details that can be easily overlooked. Making a wedding special and individual can go a long way into pleasing both the couple to be wed and their guests. Do you and your partner justice! When organising your wedding, reflect who you are through the little things as much as you possibly can.
