How do you create a stand out wedding?

Your wedding is one of the most memorable days of your life. It’s understandable to want it to represent you and your partner’s personalities, thoroughly celebrate your union, and leave a mark in the mind of your guests. However, achieving all of that isn’t necessarily an easy feat; it requires a lot of planning, but it definitely pays off in the end. 

To help you out, we’ve written a shortlist of things to keep in mind when planning your perfect wedding day. Read on below to discover a few tips to create a show stopping event:

It’s all in the preparation

From the location to the seating plan, there’s a lot of prep work that comes with getting married. Pulling off the perfect event all comes down to the work that you put in beforehand. So be sure to follow checklists online and iron out the fine details before you set your plan into motion. It’s at this point that you can experiment freely with all of your creativity. A great idea is to write out lists of ‘must haves’ and ‘nice to haves’, with priorities, so you can figure out what’s most important to your big day.

Use your individuality to your advantage

You want your wedding to stand out and be memorable and individual – so add your own spark. There’s only one you, so your ideas and perspective will inevitably bring something unique and different to the planning process. Pick your favourite colours for the colour scheme, the fonts, the food, and the flowers should all be to your taste and compliment your style.

Your own take on tradition

From the colour of your dress to the song that plays as you or your bride walks down the aisle, there are a lot of unwritten ‘rules’ when it comes to tying the knot. Well, you know what they say about rules – they’re meant to be broken (or at least bent), so feel free to stick to tradition as much or as little as you want.

Take inspiration from other events

Just because your event should be personal doesn’t mean you have to redesign the wheel. There have been so many incredible weddings and events in the past, so there are plenty of ideas to use for inspiration. We think that mood-boarding your favourites is a great place to start. That’ll help you find colour schemes and themes that you like and help you define the vibe of your big day. The aim is to create your own unique event made from a mixture of things that have been done before but with your spin and ideas as well to make it your own. 

Branding is key

The best events are consistently branded across all the mediums used – from the invitations to the flower arrangements. There’s a reason businesses follow brand guidelines, and that’s because consistent brands look better – they’re also a lot easier to remember too. Use this to your advantage and make sure you finalise your ‘branding’, fonts, colours, etc. before you send anything off to print or order the flowers.

Stand out in the right way

You want your event to be remembered for the right reasons – so the most important thing is to make your guests happy and have a good time. Aside from the event looking great, make sure you think about music and interactive things for your friends and family to do at the venue. From photo opportunities (to get your wedding hashtag trending on social media) to signing your guest book or playing themed games, there are plenty of options out there to make sure everyone has a blast.

Work with experts

The best way to ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible is to rely on a team that has done it all before. It’s likely your first time getting married, but even if it’s not, there’s so much to organise and manage, you don’t want to get bogged down in the fine details and focus on the important things and having a good, stress-free time.
