The Big Day: How To Make Your Wedding Memorable For All The Right Reasons
Every couple wants their wedding day to be memorable (in a good way). And it’s often the little things that really make the difference, those special touches that showcase your personality and the unique bond you share as a couple. Here are just a few ideas to make your wedding truly yours.
The moment you arrive at your wedding venue is a magical one. Make it extra special by arriving in a vehicle that expresses your character. Give your wedding a romantic, fairy tale feel by arriving in a horse-drawn carriage. For a laid back vibe hire a VW camper van, or for a quirky way to transport all of your guests hire a big red vintage double decker bus!
Handmade invitations, order of service and menus that are personal to you, look extra special and will be treasured by guests and kept as mementos of your day.
Let The Bells Ring
If you are getting married in a church you can arrange for the bell ringers to play the bells and let everyone know you’re getting married. It creates a wonderful, joyful atmosphere before you’ve even arrived at the church.
Instead of a traditional guest book have your friends and family sign something that expresses your personality as a couple. If you love music maybe you could have a guitar or if you love to travel you could have guests sign a globe.
Have fun with your favours and give your guests something that will make them smile. You could have handmade cookies with messages written on them in icing, mini bottles of your favourite tipple or even mini bottles of ketchup! To add a playful feel, try Swizzels’ Just Married Love Hearts With Personalised Wrappers. Your guests will love them so much they’ll be torn between eating them! They are fun, indulgent and just a little luxurious. The cute little rolls contain Swizzels exclusive JUST MARRIED tablets on the inside and your personalised message on the wrapper.
A groom’s cake is a wedding tradition originating in Victorian England, but observed more often in the modern age in the American South. A grooms cake is all about him and is displayed next to the wedding cake. The grooms cake should be inspired by their interests, here are some great grooms cake ideas.
If you have the budget it’s always worth hiring a really great band for your reception. A great band can create an amazing atmosphere and make your reception memorable for all the right reasons. Alternatively, during the wedding breakfast you could have a harpist playing, the harp is a beautiful instrument that looks as good as it sounds. It will provide a talking point and the heavenly sound of the harp will create a beautiful atmosphere.
