Are you tired of the same old wedding trends and are looking for something a bit different and unique for your own wedding? If you don’t want your wedding to seem like a repeat of every other wedding that your guests have attended, you’ll need to use a bit of creativity to help create a more unique wedding.
Fortunately, there are many ideas that you can use to make your wedding stand out.
- Create Signature Cocktails
Craft cocktails are all the rage these days. What better way to make your wedding memorable than to have a mixologist select a cocktail specifically for your wedding?! Give it a unique name to complement your big day and your guests will never forget how delightful your reception was! Create a signature cocktail as one way to add your own personality to your wedding.
- Personalized Toiletries
If your guests have to travel in order to attend your wedding, they’ll feel just a bit more pampered if you offer them personalized toiletries as wedding favors. Choose some products from upscale vendors that are bound to be better in quality than the ones that are available from a budget hotel.
- Cake Toppers
These days, there are many more options for cake toppers than just the traditional bride and groom cake topper. A cake topper is one wedding cake trend that will never go out of style. If you want to make your wedding unique, choose a cake topper that features you and your partners name, Mr. & Mrs. or even the date that you met. Since you can keep a cake topper long after the cake has been eaten, you can even bring the cake topper out again to celebrate your first anniversary!
- Personalize the Dance Floor
If you’re planning a luxury wedding, you may want to consider a customized dance floor. By adding a monogram to mark the spot or your first dance, you can make sure that your guests remember that it was your wedding with the unique dance floor! In addition, the dance floor will also show up in the pictures of your first day, creating a lovely and unique memory for years to come!
- Serve the Desserts First
Why make guests wait until after dinner is over to enjoy dessert? After all, weddings are for indulging! If you want to make your wedding a hit, order custom chocolates, cupcakes, or macaroons that feature unique designs and have your names or text put on the each one. These will surely be photographed and enjoyed by all!
Make a big entrance with a monogrammed runner for your wedding. As you walk down the aisle everyone will notice the unique design and it makes for the perfect just married photos as you make your exit! In fact, these are already pretty popular with celebrities. If your wedding has a traditional or fairytale theme, this is something that you should consider to make your wedding stand out.
This is even something that you can make on your own. If you choose to do it yourself, you can add a personalized message to the runner or quote that you love. You can sew the design into the runner or paint it on.
- Start With a Pre-Ceremony Party
Who says that you have to save the party until the reception? Hosting a pre-ceremony party for your guests with cocktails and small treats will give them a chance to catch up before the ceremony starts and give late guests the opportunity to get there before the big event.
- Plan a Group Activity
If you’re going to be marrying at a location where there are a lot of recreational events to enjoy, you should consider planning a group activity with your guests. Take everybody to the museum, aquarium, or zoo so that they can explore the city you’re in before the wedding starts. In this way, they’ll not only remember your wedding, they’ll remember the great times they had when they traveled to a city that they don’t visit often.
- Create a Slideshow
Have a lot of pics that you’d love to share? Use the Wedivite slideshow feature to display at the rehearsal dinner or the reception. It is a great way to relive old memories and entertain your guests. You can scan old photos into the computer and add them to the slideshow as well.
However, make sure that you call ahead to ensure that the banquet hall or event facility where you will host your wedding events has the necessary equipment available, including a projector and screen.
- Make a Time Capsule
Time capsules aren’t only for municipal events. In fact, they are also a great way to make your wedding unique! Before the wedding, write a letter to your partner. During the ceremony, you can take turns putting your notes into a bottle of wine and then sealing it closed. Set a date on your 10th or 25th anniversary to open it!
These are just a few ideas to help you make your wedding unique. If you really want your wedding to stand out, figure out how to get your guests involved in the ceremony. You should also cater as much as possible to your friends and family with your choices of activities, wedding favors, foods, and drinks. They’ll surely remember a wedding that was designed for everyone’s enjoyment versus a generic one!
