There are so many things to consider when planning a wedding, and you really want to be swept off your feet on your wedding day. How can you make it special and truly memorable from other ceremonies? The main thing is to focus on the details that will make a difference and keep it true to what you as a couple love together.
To help you out here are some of the best ways to be swept off your feet on your wedding day:
Make an entrance (or an unexpected getaway!)
There’s nothing more thrilling than a dramatic entrance. If you’re both outdoor enthusiasts how about arriving in the original Land Rover? If you’ve chosen an island destination wedding how about arriving by seaplane! It’s dramatically gorgeous (think about the spray as the plane glides town to the water) and classy. These days they aren’t just for the entrance either, with more couples choosing to be swept off their feet on wedding day on a classic Harley Davidson motorbike after the ceremony.
Surprise with your setting
High mountaintops, secluded sandy coves and date groves are growing in popularity for wedding locations. It turns your celebration into a truly memorable occasion and sure beats going to the same old ballroom again. A unique background also make for a spectacular set of wedding photos to cherish long after your special day. Think about locations that are special to the both of you but also remember to be practical. Consider how the catering, restrooms and furniture can work, and be mindful of the weather. It may be that you take your vows on the cliff top, then retire to the nearby resort for the canapes.
Bring the drama to the altar
If you want to be swept off your feet on your wedding day think about where you’re going to say your vows - is it picture perfect? Altar decorations have come a long way since a red rose in a vase. Think dramatic hanging floral arrangements, custom made pedestals and twinkling candles. More weddings are choosing a circular set up around the couple creating a more intimate setting for vows. There will be a lot of pictures taken of the two of you in the moment, so make sure it looks beautiful.
Give back with ‘The gift lounge’
This time you’ll sweep your guests of their feet with this idea! Curate a thoughtful table of gifts and surprises for your loved ones and let them choose what they’d love to take home. Whether it’s little jars of honey, local keepsakes or mini macaroons, there will be something to satisfy the most fussy guests big and small. It also saves you time on packing individual gift bags too.
Finish with a ‘minimoon’
Planning a wedding is a huge exercise in itself that takes many months of organising. From the dress to the venue to the menu to the cake to the guest list. While many modern couples don’t have time for a big honeymoon, the staycation or ‘mini-moon’ is growing in popularity. Take some time out to de-stress and enjoy each other’s company in complete relaxation.
