Organise a Wedding That Will Live Long in the Memory

Organise a Wedding That Will Live Long in the Memory

Weddings are always special. Weddings are always magical. They’re a joyous occasion that are unrivalled by any other celebration of life, save the birth of a child. They are a joy to behold. They are also, however, a general activity in life. And like with other general activities in life, they can fall from the memory. Now, of course, for the bride and groom the memory of the wedding day will never fade — for better or worse depending on how the marriage turns out. But for the guests, especially those that have a bit too much to drink on the day, the event can become a bit hazy. ‘I thought that was Harry and Sally’s wedding? Or was it Bill and Sue’s? Oh, I don’t know,’ is something you may have said in the past. There’s nothing wrong with this. Weddings are generally the same and it can be hard for guests to remember specific details about the ones they’ve attended. But if you’re planning a wedding, or plan to plan one in the future, you want yours to be memorable, right? There are ways to make a wedding live long in the memory of those that attend it. A few of them can be found below.

There are many ways to make your wedding more memorable but the most popular way to do so today is to have the ceremony abroad. If you’re in your late twenties and early thirties you can probably attest that there is seemingly a wedding abroad every couple of months. This is growing trend because of a few things. One is that, generally, it means the ceremony is taking place in the most beautiful of places. Another is that it will make the wedding memorable. In the future, when guests are having a hard time differentiating between weddings that they’ve been to they can just think back to where it took place. If Harry and Sally’s took place on the picturesque Amalfi Coast, then guests will remember this. If Bill and Sue’s took place in Rome, then this will be remembered also. If Bob and Janet’s took place in their hometown, however, then their wedding may fall short when it comes to living long in the memory. Having a wedding in a certain place, and making this the focal point of the ceremony, is a great way to make a wedding memorable because it geographically place marks it. If you want to take this venture then like Harry and Sally, and Bill and Sue, look no further than the beautiful country of Italy.

Another way to make a wedding live long in the memory is to ensure that there is an extensive amount of evidence that it took place. Not only this, but the evidence should be a symbol of that specific wedding and the bride and groom. For instance, this not only means that a plethora of photographs, both professional and amateur, should be taken. It means that the photos that are taken represent the personality and lives of the couple. If you and your significant other half love cars, why not pose for your wedding photos in your favourite motor? If you have a pet in your family that you are synonymous for owning, then why not have it be in the photos with you? There’s nothing wrong with bending the rules when it comes to ‘traditional’ photographs in order to have snaps taken of you that represent you and your other half. And the snaps that are taken, no matter what they represent, will last a lifetime both in albums and online. Because of this everything should be perfect — from the bride’s dress to her teeth. When it comes to the former it’s easy to forget that the dress is snapped even before it is put on. Because of this you should ensure that it is hanging on something that looks nice and pretty and not a wire hanger. When it comes to the latter, the bride’s teeth, she should have them tended to before the wedding if she wants them perfect for the photos. Whether it be teeth whitening that a bride is after or procedures on her teeth, she should learn about MyDentalBrush.com. They offer an extensive amount of services and procedures that can give any bride a smile she’s happy to flash in the most important photographs she’ll ever have taken of her.

A final bit of advice when it comes to making a wedding memorable is to simply break some rules with yours. As mentioned, weddings, as special as they are, are generally the same. They take place in the same kind of places. They follow the same sort of timeline. So if you want your wedding to stand out, why not have it take place in a different kind of place? Why not have it take place outdoors? There are plenty of pros to having a wedding outdoors. One is that little to no decor would be needed. Another is that there is more of a wide and open space available. The biggest one, however, is that it would be memorable. If you want your wedding to stand out in the memory, then why not make it ‘that one that took place outside’. The one big con with an outdoor wedding is, of course, the weather. You can’t control the weather, so you could find yourself in the midst of rainfall just as you are about to say ‘I do’. But, to be honest, this would probably make the wedding memorable as well!

So, if you’re planning a wedding then why not do all you can to make it as memorable as possible for each and every one of your guests? Yes, the memories of it may last with you and your fiancé a lifetime regardless. But to make this the case for your guests you have to go above and beyond. You have to go the extra mile and further to ensure that every little detail lives long in the memory.

Stay Within Budget

One of the best ways to keep stress at bay is to come up with a reasonable budget and stick to it. After all, there is no better way to get stressed than by getting yourself into debt. So before you even think about booking a venue or buying a dress, take a look at your finances. How much can you afford to spend on your big day? Once you have a figure, you can then start to look for venues, dresses and other wedding necessities that are within your price range. There are plenty of budgeting guides online like http://www.bridesmagazine.co.uk/planning/general/planning-service/2013/01/average-cost-of-wedding

Don’t Do Everything Yourself

Remember that it is perfectly okay to ask others for help. Your partner should by pulling his weight with your wedding organization and planning. If he isn’t, let him know that you could do with his help. You can also ask your parents and bridesmaids for some other bits of preparation help. There are also some companies that can take certain tasks off your hands. For instance, a wedding planner can help you decorate your venues. And you can also hire design firms that can personalize wedding invites for you including http://www.paperthemes.co.uk/wedding-stationery

Ask Someone To Keep Your Behavior In Check

You should ask your maid of honor to keep a check on your behavior and moods. If she thinks that you are suffering from bridezilla-style mood swings or are getting too stressed, she can take you to one side and have a word with you. You may not realize when you are starting to obsess over minor and pointless details. If you have someone keeping an eye on you, you can quickly put a stop on things when you slip into bridezilla territory.

Think About Your Priorities

Does it really matter what type of flowers you have on your reception tables? Or the type of pillows that your ring bearers carry the wedding rings on? At the end of the day, probably not. There is only one thing that truly matters. And that is that you and your partner can enjoy the day celebrating your love. So rather than fussing over the small details, change your priorities and look at the big picture instead.

Stick to all the points in this blog post, and you won’t have to worry about scaring everyone with bridezilla behavior!
