By  |  0 Comments

Your wedding will always be an unforgettable experience and one of – if not the most – special days in your life. You will want to make sure that it is a truly unforgettable experience and this will require a lot of planning. You want the day to be unforgettable not only for you and your partner but also for all your friends and family. So, what can you do to make your wedding that extra bit special? There are a few things that you can do that can make the difference and ensure that your wedding is one that you and your partner will always cherish and look back on.

1. Involve Friends & Family

One of the best ways to make your day extra special is to involve friends and family. Obviously, you will have the bridal party, but you will find that there may be other people that could play an important role in your wedding. You might have a photographer friend that could take photos, a musician that could play during the ceremony and at the reception or someone with baking experience that could make your cake. Not only will this make the event feel more personal, but you might find that this is also a good way to keep your costs down as well.

2. Have Games to Play

A nice touch that will make the day more enjoyable for your guests is to have a few games that guests can play between the major events of the day. Your wedding day will fly by, and you will constantly be busy with the various events throughout the day and trying to speak to everyone, but for your guests, there can be a lot of waiting around. Games can make these quieter periods more enjoyable, plus they can be a great way to break the ice if you have guests that do not know one another. 

3. Have a Food Truck

You will also find that many guests end up hungry throughout the day and at the end of the night. In addition to the wedding meal, a food truck could be a nice touch that allows people to enjoy good food throughout the day and relax. Of course, this is also helpful in terms of soaking the alcohol up as well, so it could prove to be well worth the extra cost.

4. Go for a Destination Wedding

A destination wedding will certainly make your day that extra bit special and, for many couples, this will be a dream come true. Getting married on a beach, in beautiful countryside, or even in a majestic castle are just a few options that will make your wedding extra romantic and unforgettable. This is also a good chance to combine a holiday with a wedding and gives you the chance to spend quality time with loved ones. Obviously, the planning of destination weddings can be tricky, which is why it is a smart idea to use destination wedding planning services. They can listen to your requirements and design a wedding that will be incredibly romantic and unforgettable.

5. Hire a Live Painter

Obviously, wedding photographs are a hugely important part of the day. In addition to this, you should consider hiring a live painter that will be able to capture your special day with a stunning portrait that you can cherish forever. There is something magical about having a beautiful painting of your special day and it will be an alternative way to capture the wedding.

6. Capture Video Messages

Instead of having a guest book for people to write in (which many forget to do), you could have a video guest book as a way for people to leave messages for you. These are always fun to look back on (especially after people have had a few drinks) and give you the chance to capture the essence of the wedding. 

7. Have a Private Meal with Your Partner

Another nice idea is to have a private meal with your partner after the ceremony but before the reception. As mentioned before, there can be long periods without any food, and you won’t want to feel hungry on your big day. Couples also do not get much time to themselves on their wedding day, so a short private meal can feel very special on your big day. This could be just a short 15-minute meal that gives you the chance to catch your breath and enjoy some quality time with your partner before cracking on with the festivities.

8. Handwritten Notes

One of the hardest aspects of weddings is that you do not get the chance to spend quality time with all your guests. Obviously, they are there for you on this special day, but you will also want the chance to show your appreciation and love for them. A great way to do this is to include handwritten notes with their table cards. This will allow you to show your appreciation and give your guest something that they can take home and cherish. 

9. Create a Wedding Hashtag

It is commonplace now, but creating a wedding hashtag is also a great idea to make your wedding that extra bit special. This will make it easy for you to see all the candid photos that your guests take throughout the day in addition to your official wedding photographs. 

Hopefully, this post will give you a few ideas and help you to plan the perfect wedding. This will be one of the happiest days of your life, but you will want to make sure that you take steps to make your wedding day that little bit more special so that it is memorable not just for you but also for your guests. There are big and small things that you can do to make your wedding extra special, and this should help you to create a day that you will always cherish and look back on together.
