8 Creative Tips to Make Your Wedding Stand Out

8 Creative Tips to Make Your Wedding Stand Out

Even if you want a fairly traditional wedding, there are still many ways to add an inventive twist to one or more features of your big day. You just need to get a little creative to make your wedding stand out. Check out these creative tips on how to achieve the most memorable day of your life:

1. Wedding Invitations

Even before the wedding, you can make people take notice of the upcoming date by sending unique save-the-date and wedding invitations. These can be personalized so that they celebrate something special about you as a couple. Etsy is a great place to look for a designer or for a DIY approach. Browse Pinterest for additional inspiration.

2. Choice of Venue

Whereas the choice of venue used to be a church or registry office by default, the world is now your oyster when it comes to choosing a venue for your wedding. Sandy beaches in the Caribbean, stately homes, hotels, Roman Baths, and even the National Space Centre are all options of places you can get married at. As long as the venue is licensed for weddings, you are good to go.

3. Reception Entertainment

One way to make your wedding different from the rest is through the entertainment you choose to have at your reception. From the high tech option, such as a video booth, to the more relaxed choice of a petting farm, the options are almost endless. This guide to entertainment ideas will get you thinking about what will best suit your reception.

4. Wedding Dress

One way for a bride to stand out is through her choice of dress. A wedding dress doesn’t have to be white and, in fact, a bold colour choice can ensure your dress is memorable. Vintage dresses, especially paired with a wedding theme that celebrates the era the dress is from, also works exceptionally well with adding more personality to the wedding.

5. Wedding Flowers

Not fond of traditional wedding flowers? Then opt for a bouquet made from buttons, dried flowers, or even fabric. The choices are now much wider in variety and an added bonus is that these bouquets last for a long time, so they can act as a permanent reminder of your day. You can also shake your flower choice up at the venue by choosing bold colours, or even potted plants, over the traditional white roses or Lily of the Valley.

6. Wedding Seating

A reception doesn’t have to include the traditional seating pattern of a top table surrounded by tables for guests. You could set the seating in a variety of different formats or even do away with it completely and opt for a buffet. Another way to make the tables stand out is to get creative with the decorations you add. Personalised table settings or unique menu cards that people can take home as a memento of the day, help to create a different experience for your guests.

7. Wedding Cake

Your wedding cake is often the centrepiece of the reception, but if you don’t like traditional fruit cake or marzipan, then opt for a delicious extravagant dessert or a mountain of individually decorated cupcakes. If you can’t imagine having a wedding without a traditional cake, then make it stand out through the decoration. You only have to head to Pinterest to find some stunning inspiration.

8. Making Memories

A memorable wedding is one where your guests still talk about it for years to come. This can be an extension of any of the ideas highlighted above or it can be the photos you take that will commemorate the day. Social media now makes this easy, so why not create a Facebook group ahead of your wedding and then encourage your friends and family to upload photos there throughout the day? You could even mention it on the invitations. This then becomes a central place for everyone to share memories and chat about how much they enjoyed your special day.
