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!

Ideas for a Fun Wedding

For some, wedding planning can be a stressful experience.  They approach every aspect of the process with trepidation, stress, and more than a hint of anxiety.  They want every detail to be pitch-perfect – and they get very upset when things don’t go their way.

But not you.  For you, wedding planning presents an opportunity to throw a fun bash that your loved ones will be talking about for years to come.  You know that the wedding doesn’t have to revolve around you – instead, it should be a celebration of the new life you’ll be spending with the partner of your dreams.

If you’re ready to throw a party your friends and family members will never forget, then check out these ideas for a fun wedding.

Incorporate a Fun Theme

Themed weddings can present the perfect opportunity for you and your loved ones to have a blast.  Themed weddings also allow you and your sweetheart to plan a ceremony and reception that perfectly reflects the uniqueness of your relationship.  For example, if you and your honey love medieval fairs, then consider planning a Renaissance wedding.  If you can’t get enough of the Halloween season, why not have a costume wedding and award your guests with prizes for the best costumes?  With themed weddings, the only limit is your imagination.

Go Someplace Exotic

If themed weddings aren’t your thing, consider having a destination wedding in a new and exciting location.  Your guests will love the opportunity to fly away to a tropical paradise, where romance and fun are practically guaranteed.  Don’t forget to offer your guests plenty of options for fun itineraries.  After all, you and your honey shouldn’t be the only people who get to enjoy the amenities of a beach wedding!

Plan Out Fun Tours and Activities

Whether you’re getting married in your hometown or having a destination wedding in a romantic city, consider planning out fun tours and activities for your guests.  For example, if you’re getting married in the Big Apple, you could go on a tour of the city with your guests or go bar-hopping inTimes Square.

If you’re getting married in your hometown, consider planning a scavenger hunt for your guests.  Place the clues in special parts of the town – for example, where you and your man first kissed – and have the prize be a gift basket filled with wine with personalized labels.

No matter what you plan for your wedding, remember that your guests will have the most fun by being around you and your future spouse!
