Looking for ways to make your big day extra special? Of course you are! The small details and finishing touches are what really make the day memorable. So once you’ve got the big decisions out of the way it’s time to start planning the fun stuff.
Here are some of the ways you can be a bit more creative, and make your wedding day even more special.
A Unique Wedding Cake
Even if you want your wedding to be very traditional, classic and elegant, you can still have fun with the wedding cake. It could be based on a theme that you both love as a couple, or just something a bit more unique and unusual. It will make your big day that much more memorable to your guests. Alternatively you could go with a fun wedding topper, lots of places sell these online and you can have them specially made to look like you and the groom.
Custom Wedding Rings
Your wedding ring is going to be a piece of jewellery that you’ll hopefully be wearing for the rest of your life. So why choose something generic from a jeweller? Having custom wedding rings made means you can be involved in the design process and choose something that’s much more personal to you as a couple.
An Unusual Guest Book
A guest book gives you something to look back in years to come. You can read the lovely heartfelt messages and good luck wishes from your friends and family. But there’s more you can do than simply buy a guestbook out to write in. Try a DIY project like a Polaroid guest book, which a fun way to remember the day; that way you get a photo and a short and sweet message from each guest. Other ideas would be to sign a token and drop it into a photo frame like this. It’s just another added extra to make things more unique, and plus you get a lovely piece to display in your home after the wedding.
Create A Special Playlist
When you’re sending out your wedding invitations, ask your guests to write the name of two or three songs they love on your RSVPs. Give this to the DJ, and you’re bound to have a packed dance floor all night! Getting people up and dancing, socializing and having fun is one of the best parts of a wedding. And will make sure yours is extra special.
Grow Your Own Flowers
Flowers are an important part of most weddings, but they can take a huge chunk out of the budget. For an extra special touch to your wedding, why not grow your own? You’ll get a huge amount of satisfaction, save money and will bring a really unique element to your big day. You’ll need to start early to make this work, but if you have a long engagement it’s something you can start getting established a year or two before.
Your garden will look gorgeous with all of the flowers blooming, and then a few days before you can collect the stems and create your own handmade bouquets. This allows you to have stunning flowers such as lilies and roses at your wedding even if you’re on a budget. As these are extremely expensive to buy, but easy to grow yourself in the garden. You could ask close friends and family members if they have some flowers from their garden they could donate to you too.
