Making a Wedding Stand Out: Top Ideas for a Unique Day
If you’re planning the intricacies of tying the knot, remember that your day can be as unique as you want it to be. While it is far easier to choose a cookie cutter wedding that has all the traditional elements included, adding your own personality to the day can make it even more special and unique so that not only do you remember it as a standout day, but your guests do too.
The idea of making a wedding unique could easily mean upping the budget, but it doesn’t have to be expensive to be original. Careful planning and a little creativity can provide you and your other half with a wedding to be proud of. Perhaps some of these ideas may appeal to you when planning your ideal wedding:
Have you ever considered being a little barmy and organising a fancy dress wedding? Set a theme in the early stages and, as part of the invitation, ask for your guests to join in the fun and dress up appropriately! With plenty of men’s and women’s fancy dress at George and like, they don’t need to worry about spending a fortune (in fact, it can often turn out to be less than spending on a new frock!) and you can all have some crazy fun as part of the special day.
If you don’t want to think completely out of the box, perhaps a masquerade ball as part of the reception would be a good idea?
If you don’t want to go the whole hog and ask guests to dress up, perhaps you could incorporate a theme running through the day instead. Many couples choose to base their wedding décor around certain colours, but why stop there? Base the day around something that you both love so that a glimmer of your personalities can shine through.
Maybe you both love Alice in Wonderland (or at least you do) and would love to have a vintage tea party in the style of the Mad Hatter, or perhaps your other half proposed to you in New York and you would like to use this as inspiration. Maybe you both love Art Deco and want to incorporate it into your wedding stationery? Or maybe you’re both lovers of 50s rock and roll – if so, you could go to jive lessons and perform a choreographed first dance to be proud of!
A sit down meal is all well and good, but why not add something interesting to the mix as well? You could incorporate ideas such as sweet tables, an ice cream van or a fish and chip van to the proceedings if you fancy being a little different!
Traditional photos are fabulous to look back on, but why stop there? If your guests are up for it you could use a fun photo booth with some random props, or provide a couple of Polaroid cameras to spice up the guest book. An old school Holga complete with filters would be a fab addition, too.
It’s up to you how much personality and uniqueness you inject into your wedding – just remember that this is a once in a lifetime opportunity and something that should be remembered forever as being exactly how you wanted it to be!
