How to Make Your Wedding Fun Yet Elegant and Memorable

blog-wedding-fun-yet-elegantYour wedding day will be one of the most important days of your life. It is a day that marks a turning point in your life, and should be fun yet elegant and memorable. If you’re currently going through the planning process, consider how you can make each portion of your party stand out. Here are several suggestions in order to make your special day unforgettable!

1. Pick a Theme

Couples will find that their creative juices begin to flow once they have selected a wedding theme. Some of the most popular themes are vintage, country, fall, winter wonderland, garden party, and sunflowers. Once the theme is chosen, it becomes easier to plan the rest of the wedding. Planning your wedding will not only be fun, but will also offer you limitless possibilities with your décor, color scheme, cake selection, and even your wedding ensemble. Guests can also get in on the action once you inform them about your theme, indicated by the save-the-date card and wedding invitation you send them.

2. Incorporate Your Personality into the Ceremony

Many couples feel the cookie-cutter ceremony does not suit their style. While most feel it’s just easier to stick with tradition, the ceremony may not exactly suit who you are as a couple. Know that you can infuse your personality and style into your ceremony by customizing your vows. If you are a couple who loves wine, you can ditch the unity candle and drink from the same cup. You can even pass around some pre-filled glasses to guests to join you. Include some of your favorite quotes into your vows, or even invite some friends of family members to say a few inspirational (or even funny) words about your relationship during the ceremony. It’s a great way to do something out of the norm that is fun yet classy and acceptable, but memorable (most of all!).

3. Start the Party Right

If you search YouTube for ceremony entrance or exit songs, you’ll notice that a lot of couples get the party started immediately! They put together dance routines or arrange for their wedding party members to enter and exit to specific songs that suit their personalities. Once guests hear upbeat, celebratory tunes, they are sure to start clapping, smiling, and dancing their way out of the ceremony into the cocktail hour or reception.

These suggestions are simple, fun, and completely memorable for everyone. Consider them if you are in the wedding planning process and are looking for unique ideas that are a huge hit with the guests!

How to Make My Wedding Invitations Special and Meaningful

There’s no denying that a bevy of wedding invitation choices lay before you and your fiancé.  You can choose almost any design or invitation style your heart desires, not to mention paper choices, card sizes and printing options.  But for some couples, the wedding invitation is more than just a way of providing ceremony and reception information to their loved ones…it’s an opportunity to demonstrate their unique relationship.

It’s no surprise that more couples are opting to make their own wedding invitations or are searching for unique invites that match their unique personalities.  If you’re interested in doing something special for your wedding invitations, here are some ideas that you and your fiancé can use.

Personalize Your Invitations

By nature, wedding invitations should always be personalized (after all, people need to know who’s getting married!).  But with regards to personalized invitations, we mean finding the kind of invitations that truly speak to you and your sweetheart as a couple.  For example, if you and your fiancé are always off hiking, you could opt to design a wedding invitation that centers on fall foliage or a forest appearance.

You could also opt to personalize your invitation with a your very own custom design.  These types of wedding invitations are becoming increasingly popular, as they make the invites feel more special and meaningful since they are designed just for you.  Be sure to ask your wedding invitation designer for their custom design services.

Think Outside the Box

There’s no denying that wedding invitations are getting more creative and unique with each passing year.  There’s a plethora of options out there for you and your fiancé to pick from – and if you’re having a theme wedding, you have a wonderful opportunity to make your wedding invitations special and meaningful.

For example, if you’re having a destination wedding, you could opt to have your wedding invitation printed to look like an airline ticket.  If you’re having a  beach-themed wedding, your invites could have a nautical design.  While these are specific examples, they’re meant to demonstrate that when it comes to special wedding invitations, the world is your oyster!
