Plan a Wedding Day That is as Unique as You

When it comes to weddings, everyone has the same picture in their minds; white dress, suits, fancy car, sit down meal, bridesmaids in matching dresses… the list goes on. However, the big white dress isn’t for everyone, and sometimes the weight of all the tradition can make couples feel under pressure to be someone that they’re not for a day, to keep up with tradition. The truth is that everyone is different, no couple is the same as every other couple, so it follows that each wedding should be different. Everyone has been to those weddings where they are lovely but very similar to every other wedding you have ever been to.

Your wedding is your special day, so letting your individuality shine through so that you can celebrate in a way that is meaningful to you is crucial. If you are not big on tradition, you may never have really put too much thought into what your wedding day could be like. Now is the time to let your creativity get to work to plan yourself a wedding of your dreams, and not everyone else’s!

Think Outside the Box

There are so many different places to get married nowadays, so the possibilities really are endless. Choose a location for your ceremony that has some meaning to you and then gets planning!

If the idea of a flashy hotel for the wedding reception and evening celebration fills you with dread, then think of a venue where you can really let your hair down and enjoy yourself with your guests. See if you can hire your favorite restaurant, or maybe have an outdoor reception and party beneath the twinkling stars, hire a band through so that you can dance along to awesome live music. Whatever you decide to do, make your celebration the best day of your life and the best party ever.

Catering without Chaos

A sit-down meal is often the preferred option for wedding receptions; however, this isn’t without its difficulties. From finding menu choices that everyone wants to eat, through to the minefield that is arranging your table plans without causing tensions; a sit-down meal can cause a lot of stress.

If you prefer a more relaxed vibe for your reception, then why not have a buffet so that everyone can choose their own food. Do away with tradition and avoid the arguments caused by table plans, and let everyone simply sit with who they like while they eat.

Honeymoon However You Like

The popular thing to do for your honeymoon is to jet off to somewhere tropical and soak up the sun while sipping cocktails and watching sunsets. Sounds good right? It really does seem great, but, alternatively, you could take the opportunity to make some truly special memories by taking a vacation to a destination that you have always dreamed of visiting. Exploring a new city and culture together is the ultimate way to start on your new journey into life as a married couple.
