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.

Find Your Wedding Style in 4 Easy Steps

 

Modern, elegant, rustic, or vintage are just some of the possible choices that will define your wedding style. Deciding on a particular one, or even opting for a combination of several different styles in order to create your unique vibe is an essential part of wedding planning. With the plethora of choices, it can sometimes be difficult to opt for the one that you’ll enjoy the most. However, with a few easy steps, you’ll be able to make the best choice.

image-2-1Look around your home

Your home is the reflection of your personality. Therefore, look around it and get a closer look at your wardrobe to see what the characteristics of your personal style are. Do you like wearing comfortable clothes, easy-going boots and fedora hats? Is your kitchen filled with vintage items and bronze and brown tones? If so, your number one wedding style choice could be rustic. On the other hand, you are maybe more of a girly type that enjoys wearing miniskirts, cute blouses and silver headbands and have a house décor in which white, ivory and rosy tones are predominant. In this case, you might be looking for an elegant and sophisticated wedding.

Find inspiration through various sources

Even if you’ve fantasized about your dream wedding since your childhood, you could never get enough fabulous ideas. Therefore, it’s time you started flipping through the bridal magazines, search the Internet and consult your friends. Bridal magazines are filled with fabulous gowns, accessories and venues that could potentially define your wedding style. Pinterest is one of the best online sources of wedding ideas. You can find inspiration for everything you need there ‒ from a dreamlike venue, through delicious food to the enchanting wedding gowns and bridesmaid dresses. Sometimes thinking about weddings that you’ve been to can also help you decide what you want – or don’t want – yours to be like.

image-5-1The type of venue

One of the first things you should do, when planning a wedding, is decide on the type of the venue you’d want the ceremony to take place at. Think whether an elegant ballroom is the ideal place, or you’d rather go for a shabby chic barn. On the other hand, maybe the outdoors is a more attractive location, so a beach or a forest wedding would be just the perfect option. Additionally, you could go for a unique venue such as an ice hotel in Sweden, or even a mesmerizing waterfall in Iceland. Going to a remote destination will automatically require an intimate wedding with a small number of guests. Furthermore, don’t forget to consider the service that the venue provides. Be sure to know whether the catering services are included or if you need to think about that as well. An on-site catering will make the wedding styling unique, since the guests will be able to see how the food is prepared on the premises.

image-1-4Think About the Colours

The one element that amalgamates the entire happening is the choice of colours. A specific colour should unite all the wedding elements including the stationeries, the wedding dress, bridesmaids’ dresses, and finally the venue décor. The colour wheel could be of great help if you haven’t had any particular colour palette in mind. Subtle light shades of green, pink, peach and yellow are about the most loving tones you could include into the wedding décor. Match them with white, to fashion the gorgeous fairy tale wedding.

Choosing the wedding style is challenging but essential at the same time. You can’t have the perfect wedding unless you know what kind of an ambience you want to create. Therefore, follow the previously mentioned tips and you’ll easily figure out whether you want a rustic, modern, elegant or vintage wedding.
