There are many things you might want to achieve when you are planning your wedding day – but something which is especially likely to be important is to ensure that it is as personal to you as possible. Th more personal the day is, the more likely it is that you will be able to fully enjoy it – and it will also mean that your guests are so much more likely to remember it as well. However, it can be surprisingly difficult to know how to make your wedding day as personal to you as possible, and what kind of special touches can really make a difference. In this article, we are going to look at some of the best ways to do just that – so that you can be sure of your wedding day really standing out amongst the rest.
Know Your Colours
One of the biggest decisions you will be making is what kind of colour schemes to use throughout the day. The more you are able to get this right, the more likely it is that you will know how to actually keep your day as close to your ideal as you would like. For this, it helps to know what colours tend to suit you and your partner – and this is something you will want to think about long and hard if you are to make your day as perfect as possible. The more you know your own perfect colours, the more likely it is that your wedding day will suit you – and be more truly yours, rather than a copy of others’ weddings and styles.
The Food Of Love
You might be surprised at how much your choice of food can help you to get your personality across and make her day more personal to you. But you will need to make sure that you are choosing some great food anyway, so you might as well make sure that it is also personal to you. You can take this idea as far as you like – you might have a favourite food which you and your partner eat frequently, or maybe you want to go down the symbolic route instead and choose a menu which somehow speaks to you as a couple in some way. The right food will help you to feel much more as though it is really your day – and it is also one of the elements which your guests are most likely to remember as well, so it is doubly important to look to the foo when you are trying to make your wedding day more personal to you and your partner while keeping everyone happy as well.
It simply is not a wedding without music – and, actually, many wedding planners admit that choosing the music is one of the most time-consuming and difficult elements of the entire plan for the day. However, approached in the right way it can also be one of the best chances to express yourself as fully as you like, and it is something you definitely want to think about long and hard if you want to make your wedding day truly yours, and unique from other weddings too. When it comes to choosing and building your playlist, be sure to bear in mind that you can’t just put in whatever you like. You will, to a certain extent, need to make sure that your guests are going to be happy with the choices, as otherwise they are not going to have much of a party – an if it isn’t much of a party, it isn’t much of a wedding either. Find the balance between personal expression and pleasing the crowd, and that way everyone should be happy.
You are probably already starting to think about how you might decorate the venue, and it is likely to take a long time to fully decide on a decoration theme, not to mention the specifics. But it’s worth remembering that this is one of the greatest opportunities you have to make the day as true to yourself and your partner as possible. Whether it is having custom flags printed and strung around the venue or even just banners and pictures which are suitable for you, you’ll find that it helps to think about the decorations as early on as possible. The more you do so, the more likely it is that yo wedding day will be much more personal to you. Remember this, and spend some time getting the decorations just right. It will really make all the difference in the world.
Chances are, you are going to want something in the way of entertainment, beyond just the playlist we have already mentioned. Whether or not you are aware of it, the entertainment you choose says a lot about you, so you might as well pay attention to what you go for as it will make a huge difference to the day on the whole. It might be that you want to go for a kind of entertainment which will say something bout the two of you – a bucking bronco or a pretend ski slope, or whatever suits you – or you can just go for something simpler instead. Either way, it is worth thinking about to some degree as it can make an enormous difference to the day. Get the entertainment rich, and in a sense you will find that the rest will follow.
A particularly novel way in which you can bring your real personality into your wedding day is by actually altering the structure of the day itself. Most people will not even consider this at all, and for that reason alone you will already be well ahead of the rest by considering changing your daily structure. If you are careful and clever about it, you will almost certainly find ways to bring your personality into the day in this way. This could really make the day extra special, and it’s definitely worth considering. For that reason alone – but also as a means of making the day really yours.
