If you are keen to get hitched to your nearest and dearest, you might be eager to start planning for your big day. You may have plans for a large gathering, an extravagant ceremony, and a big celebration. Or, you might be keen to explore more intimate ways to exchange your vows. However you want to celebrate your love, you need to consider how you can make your day more bespoke to you. To make your day extra special, it needs to be personalized and feed into your loves, wants, and passions as a couple. Take a look at these three simple ways to go the extra mile on your wedding day to make it memorable and special.
When you exchange vows, you can take the words that the celebrant or the vicar has given to you and recite them. These traditional vows require no input from you and may be the universal words that couples say to one another. However, to make your day extra special, you might want to declare your love to your partner in your unique and special way. Write your own vows and explain to your soul mate how you are committing to them. You don’t have to honor and obey, and instead you could adore and treasure. Perhaps you want to highlight their smile, their caring nature, and the funny story of your first date. This can personalize your day to the max.
As you exchange vows, consider the rings that you swap. You don’t have to opt for a high street pair of bands and could opt for custom rings from Jacob Mercari which will result in your wedding rings being wholly unique. No other couple in the world will have the rings that you have on your fingers.
When considering how to record your big day, think about mixing up the photography. While having a pro there on the day taking the candid snaps, the posed shots and the hidden moments is great for memory making, employing the photography services of your guests can be worthwhile. Leave old school polaroid’s on tables for guests to pick up and use. These capture the most off the cuff and happy moments. Have a photo booth set up for your reception. Here, your friend and family can dress up and pose away, giving you some of the most weird and wonderful captures of your loved ones having a great time.
Don’t assume that you have to get married in a church or a hotel. If you are a couple of movie buffs and you had your first date at the movies, think about having your ceremony in an art house cinema. These theater screens ooze art deco glamor and could create a wonderful theme for your big day. The photos will look great and you even have a readymade aisle to walk down. Alternatively, if you love the great outdoors, consider having your ceremony on the beach, in a garden, or even on a mountainside. The possibilities really are endless to help make your day extra special.
Don’t go for the norm and traditional when planning your big day. Follow this guide and your wedding can be unique and special.
