Getting Married? 5 Details That Will Make Your Wedding Day More Memorable
Your wedding day is one that you’ll never forget. Those who attend are more likely to forget some of the details than you are. It’s possible to plan a day that will be even more memorable than you imagined. Here are five details that you can use to make your big day memorable for everyone.
Choose An Awesome Venue That Fits Your Style
Whether you’re having a destination wedding or one right where you live, choosing the right venue for your personal and wedding style is one of the best ways to make a statement. Casual, rustic, or vintage weddings might take place in a renovated romantic barn, for example, while a formal, super modern one might take place in a glass and steel building.
Have Unique Floral Arrangements That Are All Yours
From your bouquet in your hands as you walk down the aisle, to the flowers that decorate your ceremony’s venue to the centerpieces at the reception, flowers are everywhere during a wedding. Flowers are a great way to express your unique style. You can choose different flower types, different colors, and unique ways of arranging them to create an arrangement that looks like no other and gives both you and your guests a special memory. Work with a local florist, such as a utah florist if you live in Utah, to express your style and vision for your wedding day so that you have flowers that match perfectly with what you want.
Have An Open Bar—And A Signature Drink
A cash bar might make things less expensive for you, but it often feels off-putting to guests. If you want to save on an open bar, try offering a curated selection of drinks—a margarita and martini bar, for example, or a small selection of beers and a couple of signature drinks created just for your big day. A specialized menu with fewer selections will seem like an elegant, classy choice to customize your reception rather than an attempt to save some money.
Offer Transportation To Your Guests
A party bus, limos, or even calling for some Ubers or taxis to get guests from the hotel to the ceremony and reception is a kind gesture, particularly for those who are from out of town and might not have a vehicle. Offering transportation after the reception is a great idea if you’re serving alcohol—while guests are responsible for their own actions, the last thing you want is for your wedding day to be memorable because someone was injured or killed while trying to drive home. Be fun with your transportation options, and you might even be able to turn it into an extension of the party.
Throw An After Party
Older guests, such as grandparents, might be content to go home at 9 or 10 PM, but others might want to continue to celebrate with you. Don’t let the reception venue’s hours slow down the fun. While you’re venue-hunting, look for another smaller venue to host an after party for those who want to keep going.
Even a bar can be fun. Change clothes and enjoy a few more drinks with your loved ones before you call it a night. If you think older and/or quieter loved ones will want to participate in the after party, look for quieter venues where you can spend precious quality time with them, especially if they’ve traveled a long distance to be with you on your special day.
Brand Your Wedding Day
Weddings are always memorable, particularly to the couple getting married. But with a little creative thinking and stepping beyond the traditional wedding plans, you can create a day that is memorable for everyone. Have fun with it, and enjoy your day.
