When it comes to planning your wedding, it can feel like every unique idea that comes to mind has been done. While it’s easy to get overwhelmed by the seemingly endless options to make your wedding stand out, it’s important to keep in mind that the details that will make your wedding one to remember are not donut walls or neon signs, but the things that represent the you and your story.
Before going down a rabbit hole trying to find the most exceptional ideas out there, decide with your partner what about each of you is important to have represented, and how to do so in a way that feels authentic. Discuss what moments can represent you as individuals and showcase elements of your personalities and interests, then move into what moments you want to share as a couple. You and your love story are what make your wedding one-of-a-kind.
Each part of your wedding is customizable, and different elements will matter more to each of you. Create a vision together then decide on who will take on creating or booking the things most important to them and what you would like to put together jointly. Leave room to surprise each other in small ways as well; there is nothing quite like the shock and awe of something completely unexpected for both guests and couples.
Don’t be afraid to think outside the box, just because something has always been done a certain way, doesn’t mean that is the best or only way to do it. Florals aren’t the only option for centerpieces, no one says you have to get married under an arch, and games are just as much fun at weddings as dancing! Staying true to you is what will make the elements of your wedding unique and a special experience for those involved and attending.
From ring bears to hand painted escort canvases to a bride-made macrame arch pieces, there are endless possibilities to wow guests, shoot incredible photos, and throw a celebration that is unlike any other. Focusing on what make you as individuals and as a couple unique, will in turn make your wedding unique.
