Most people don’t want your standard, cookie-cutter wedding that ends up being unmemorable. With the wedding industry booming, there are tons of ways to make your wedding unique and one-of-a kind. Even on the lowest budgets, couples can add some of their personality into their wedding celebration that will make it memorable and unique.
Create a Custom Wedding Menu
Using a custom wedding menu is one of the easiest ways to create a unique wedding experience for you and your guests. One of the most talked about aspects of any wedding is the food – so you definitely don’t want this part to be amiss.
There are a number of ways to customize your wedding menu, whether you simply choose your favourite foods or design a menu inspired by your culture or ethnicity.
Also, don’t limit yourself to sit-down options. Consider setting up food stations where food is made to order, or consider a backyard barbeque theme with pro chefs behind fired-up grills.
If you’re fresh out of ideas, don’t be shy to get inspiration from top wedding caterers who have years of experience catering weddings, and who will be able to help inspire you for your upcoming special day.
Add a Lounge to Your Reception Area
With everyone assigned to their own seats, sometimes it can be difficult for people to mix and mingle. Why not set up a lounge area where guests can take a break between dancing, relax on a sofa, and mingle with some of the other guests?
Reserve a small space for some comfy chairs and couches with plenty of pillows. Don’t forget to add side tables or a coffee table in the center of the space so that people have a place to put their drinks or plates down. Make sure the space matches the décor and theme of your wedding – add some of your flowers or centrepieces, and include your colours in the fabric choices.
Ditch the Standard Wedding Guestbook
When it comes to creating lasting memories, the typical guest book doesn’t really make the cut anymore. There are a number of creative and unique ideas out there to do something fun and memorable that you will be able to take home and treasure forever.
- Instead of a book, ask guests to write on a notecard and then pin it to a beautifully framed board. You can even make the notecards have unique shapes to match your wedding theme, like flowers, or boats if you’re going for a nautical theme.
- Rent a photo booth for your wedding venue and ask guests to sign their photos with special messages. You can either frame the photos (like the notecards) or create a photo album with them that you’ll be able to treasure forever.
- Have guests write in your favourite fairy tale book, filling the pages with inspiring words for your happily-ever-after.
Feeling inspired yet? Good – now get out there and begin to plan your perfect wedding day. With all the help out there, you’ll probably have more ideas than you’ll know what to do with.
