If you’re getting married, you probably want to make your wedding day a little unique and special, and avoid the cookie-cutter weddings that are so popular on Pinterest. Luckily, we’ve got some top tips to make sure your wedding will be memorable- without breaking the bank:
Choose a keepsake guest book
Often, guest books end up hidden away in a closet. Instead, check out these keepsake guest books and choose a wedding guest book that’s personalised for you. You can add your names, wedding date, a cute photo, interesting borders, and more.
Pick smart wedding invitations
Wedding invitations can steal a huge chunk of change from your budget, which is why it’s a good idea to design your own invite online. There are also available wedding invitation templates that are easily available for you to choose at. That way, you can create a memorable invite that’s as unique as your relationship.
If your guests will need to move from your ceremony to your reception, why not make the journey part of the experience? If you have room in your budget, you can rent some seriously amazing mass transportation options. Consider a hot air balloon ride, or even a yellow school bus.
Most people are expecting drinks to be served at the wedding, but a pre-ceremony cocktail can be a nice surprise. Don’t serve drinks that are too strong- fruit infused teas or mimosas are a good choice (don’t forget non-alcoholic versions too). Simply set up a table where guests will walk in so they can sip before they find their seat. Your ushers or caterers can then collect the glasses before you walk down the aisle.
If you’ve been to a few weddings, you’ll know how uncomfortable things can get as the day wears on. But if you think ahead, you can easily keep your guests comfortable and make your wedding memorable at the same time- after all, it’s the little touches that count. If a lot of people have travelled for your wedding, custom scented soaps will help them avoid the typical hotel samples. If you know your friends are dancers, consider setting out baskets of flats or flip-flops (consider using your wedding colors) so your guests can take off their heels and dance the night away.
If you’re having an outdoor reception, make sure you have some cozy blankets or pashminas available. And if you’ve got a summer ceremony or it’s mosquito season, add a station with bug spray and sunscreen.
