If you would like to make your wedding truly memorable and tailored to your taste and preferences, you might be thinking about implementing a theme that will help you express yourself and feel comfortable and supported throughout the day. From the menu to the dress and decorations, the personalized ring and invites, there are plenty of things you have to think through before you can choose the right wedding theme. If you don’t know where to start, you will find a few tips below.
Your Likes and Hates
You know yourself and your partner more than anything. There’s no point having balloons if he hates them or clowns if you are scared of them. You will need to create a list of things you like and feel comfortable with, and things you simply don’t want to see on your own wedding. You might hate artificial flowers, therefore, a summer wedding in a romantic garden might a better choice than one in the winter wonderland. List the things you can add to your wedding theme that will make you both smile.
Your Guests’ Age and Gender
While the big day is all about you and your partner, you will also need to consider your guests’ taste and age, gender. You can’t get everyone to cheer on the latest movie themes if most people don’t even know the characters and are over 50. It is crucial that your guests feel as welcome as possible. If you introduce a theme they are not familiar with, they might decline the invitation or feel excluded or lost during the wedding.
Once you have chosen the general theme of your wedding, it is important that you pick your entertainment and study the different bands and musicians’ portfolio. Thanks to the internet, now most of the entertainers have an online demo or portfolio, so you don’t have to visit them all in person. Instead, create a shortlist and ask them the question about your chosen music and theme, and only have a discussion with the top three. This will save you a lot of time on your wedding planning.
It is important that you let your future guests know about the dress code at your wedding. You might want to create a laid back atmosphere and personalize the experience. If you are opting for the casual and personal theme, chances are that you can’t ask your guests to turn up in a smart dress. Instead, relax the dress code and tailor it to your scene, your theme, and your personal taste.
Invites and Decoration
It is crucial that you personalize the experience for your guests. If you have a Love & Promise classic engagement rings to exchange on the top of the mountain, you will need to create the decor and the theme accordingly. There are catering companies out there that will allow you to drop down from a helicopter hand-in-hand, or surprise your wedding guests in other ways. Give your friends and family members a hint in the invites, and get them to prepare for an unforgettable experience.
Movie Scene or First Date Recreation
A good way of personalizing your wedding is recreating a romantic moment from your life or a movie. When planning your wedding, you will need to pay attention to the details and make sure that nothing looks out of place. You can choose a location that resembles a movie scene, or return to the place where you first met, or where he proposed. At the end of the day, the wedding should be all about your experiences and memories, and has to be tailored to your preferences. You might simply want to book the same restaurant or go for a walk to the park where you first set eyes on each other.
Consider the Season
No matter how clear your ideas about your wedding heme are, the weather will have the last say. Check the forecasts, and make sure that you can get shelter from the rain and wind, or you might see your theme, decoration, and the whole day ruined. Outdoor programs should only be planned if you have an alternative, in case there’s a storm in the area.
Personalizing your wedding might be one of the most challenging tasks for couples. Choose the theme according to your best memories and personal preferences, but also take into consideration the needs of your guests. Check the weather forecast, and choose the music that represents your relationship.
