Every bride wishes to make her wedding day as memorable as possible. Since planning a wedding consumes so much of your time and mental energy, it’s possible that some of the finer details of your wedding will slip your mind for a while. It’s understandable that you’d overlook anything as minor as your bouquet when dealing with larger specifics like hiring a caterer. Having a one-of-a-kind wedding doesn’t have to mean going all out, so take a look at these four things that you could consider to make your big day one to remember.
Plan a surprise for your bridesmaids
While you are grateful for everyone who has come to your wedding, your bridesmaids and maid of honour have most likely put a lot of effort into making your day as memorable as possible. Why not schedule a fun surprise for your bridesmaids as a thank you to show how grateful you are? Perhaps you might purchase a fun gift for them to wear on the morning of your wedding or to your actual ceremony? It will be greatly appreciated by them, and it is the ideal gesture from a grateful bride.
If you want to have non-traditional wedding images to look back on, talk to your local wedding photographer about some wedding picture options so that they can get a sense of what you and your groom want for your wedding. Perhaps photos of your hands taken shortly after becoming husband and wife atop a newspaper with the date of your wedding day? Alternatively, you could purchase props for your guests to hold or introduce a theme into your wedding photos. Having some fun photos taken to use as thank you cards for your guests is also a brilliant idea!
Stepping out of tradition
There’s nothing wrong with some brides preferring the concept of a traditional wedding. However, if you really want to make your wedding one-of-a-kind, consider breaking from tradition with a few of the specifics. Maybe you’ll have your furry companion accompany you down the aisle, or maybe you’d prefer to be married by your best mate. Nowadays, you can become ordained online, which adds a very personal touch to your wedding day! You might also switch up who gives the toast at your wedding. So, instead of just the groom and his best men giving a speech, why don’t you and your maid of honour give one as well?
Give your guests disposable cameras
Looking at pictures taken by guests is something that every bride and groom wants to do after their wedding. It gives you an idea of how much fun everybody had because, as you’ve probably heard, your wedding day will fly by and you won’t be able to talk to everyone at the same time. Why not place a few disposable cameras on each table so that your guests can photograph your special day as well? The more raw and in-the-moment photos are also the ones that mean the most.
