Everybody knows that your wedding day is one of the best and most memorable of your life and unless you are unfortunate you should only ever have one. With all of this in mind it is vital that you make the most of your big day and make it as special as you possibly can. With all of the stress and strain that can come from planning a wedding it can be easy to forget that you are supposed to enjoy the day and make memories that will last you forever, but if you can follow some of these tips and guidelines then you should be able to have the kind of treasured memories that you have always dreamt of.
Don’t Let Setbacks Get you Down
No one in history has ever planned a wedding without something going awry somewhere along the line, so don’t get too taken aback when something does go wrong. What it is important to keep in mind is that even what seems to be the biggest disaster can be averted or dealt with more easily if you stay calm and upbeat. When it does come to dealing with problems and issues it is also important to lean on your fiancé, family and friends for their support as this is sure to make things seem a lot easier along the way.
Don’t Skimp on your Special Day
It may seem a little irresponsible in the current economic climate but your wedding day should be one of the few occasions where you push the boat out and don’t settle for anything but the best. This is particularly true when it comes to things like venue, catering and photographer or videographers, as these are the extra touches that can make a real difference but are also the areas where you really do get what you pay for.
Think Outside the Box
It is your day and your day alone, so don’t be afraid to be a little unconventional and make your wedding truly personal with some quirky and individual touches. This might mean holding the ceremony or reception at a slightly unusual venue that means a lot to you, arranging and practicing a novelty first dance or something as simple as writing your own personal vows rather than going for something formulaic. However you choose to do it, making your special day truly personal and unique is a great way to make sure that everyone will remember it forever.
Do Something Nice for the Wedding Party
It is always nice for the happy couple to show their appreciation to their wedding party at the reception for all their hard work and simply for being there to support you and celebrate with you on your big day. The best man, maid of honour, bridesmaids and groomsmen would be delighted with some keepsake presents like engraved cufflinks, tankards or personalised jewellery simply because they show that you appreciate what they have done for you and give them something to remember the day by.
