We’ve all heard the story: Boy meets girl and they fall in love. They go on a few dates, then profess their undying feelings in a church or other religious places with their friends and family. This is the classical love story that most romantic movies rely on. As a result, most people often duplicate this story and plan their weddings around religious centers within their local area.
While the traditional venue that has a disco ball on the dance floor at the reception, has the potential to be a magical event, it’s something that is duplicated time and time again. As such, if you choose this option, you may begin to find it hard to differentiate between your wedding, and many of the other weddings that you may have attended (from friends and family).
The true key behind turning your wedding into a truly enchanting event is to make it unique. This is something that even surpasses the power of setting a larger budget. I mean, sure… you could hire all of the most expensive things, in order to dazzle your guests. With an unlimited budget, you could choose the perfect venue, set the most delicious menu and purchase amazing decor. However, unless you make your wedding unique to you and your spouse, it will just be another lavish event.
Below, we’ll talk about a few expert tips that will help you plan a unique wedding.
1. Consider your preferences
The first expert tip that will help you plan a unique wedding is to consider yours and your spouse’s preferences throughout the decision-making process. Every individual has their own unique character, likes or dislikes and preferences. As such, if you choose options that uniquely appeal to you and your spouse (even if they are not the most popular trends at the time), this will help you differentiate you wedding from the masses. These preferences include elements such as your colour scheme, décor options, menu type, venue type and so much more.
2. Do not be afraid to make bold decision
Our next expert tip, when it comes to planning unique weddings, it’s not to fear making bold decisions. Most weddings fall under a defined category when it comes to expectation. These include the traditional church venue, the 4 course menu, the classical white dress and many other over used tropes. While these themes have the power to create a truly amazing event, you shouldn’t fear the idea of potential venturing out. If your preferences favour a change, you should embrace the idea of changing up these tropes, in order to plan a wedding that is uniquely yours.
Maybe you and your partner love pizza, so you can set that as the main course. Or maybe you’re both fans of the beach, so you can select a beach front location as your venue. All of these unique choices (if they fit for you) can help you create an event that’s not only amazing, but fresh, bold and uniquely yours.
