This afternoon we are back with our regular feature ‘Advice from the Married Side,‘ real life wedding planning advice...
You’ve already got on one knee and proposed with an engagement ring. Now it’s time to add a personal touch to your wedding day in one of the best ways to make it uniquely yours. You can do this in many different ways, and we’ve got some great tips on how to get started!
For example, one thing that every bride should consider is what kind of engagement ring they want their partner to buy them. You may be surprised at how significant an impact this will have on your wedding day.
We’ll share with you six creative ideas for adding a personal touch in other areas, too, like with your wedding rings and the decorations for the reception hall!
Have you decided which type of ring to buy? There are so many wedding rings styles and options that it can be hard to know where to start.
We recommend finding a jeweler who will help you select the perfect wedding ring or designing your own! Either way, there’s no need for it to be expensive, especially if diamonds don’t hold any sentimental value for either partner (or both).
If money is tight, consider choosing something with more personal meaning instead, such as gold bands engraved with special messages from each other. Though it’s an excellent standard to make sure they match in style.
Buy a charming wedding album from the store or make your own, but be sure to put it in a spot where guests will see them, or task someone with the job of looking after it for the evening. After you get married, take some time and gather photos of both of you with friends and family members.
Start adding captions underneath each picture that document what is happening, such as the guests’ names, then find an event for people to sign next to their caption.
The song’s lyrics can be a poem or passage that has meaning to you and your spouse; these words will set the tone for your ceremony in a unique way. If it’s not possible to find an appropriate song, there are also plenty of websites to upload music that creates one specifically for your wedding day moment.
You might want to save some songs before the big day, so if something doesn’t work out exactly how you had planned (who knows what could happen), then at least you know you have options! Your DJ/Band should also know what type of songs they need ahead as well.
Designing invitations is a great way to show off your creativity. You can also find templates on the internet for creating an invitation with one of your favorite photos or pictures! You could even have guests RSVP online using their email address and password you’ve set up specifically for them as well as a link to print out their response card easily at home. No postage is necessary!
There are so many ways to personalize these pieces that it’s impossible not to love every single idea. Enjoy this creative process and create something special just for you two!!! Remember there will be plenty more opportunities in life where we won’t get to do anything but work anymore -make sure those wedding moments are all about YOU!!
It’s OK to ask for help making your vows, but you have to remember to speak from the heart. You can’t use the exact words your parents said to each other or something you read in a magazine. Write from an honest place and let what comes out surprise you!
Some factors to consider:
Be sure to write down these important moments for yourselves, so one day, when there’s no more wedding, engagement, anniversary parties left, you’ll always be able to go back and cherish those memories again. Yeah, we all know that is never going to happen! So enjoy every single second during these crazy times.
Choosing the right venue for your reception can be one of the most challenging decisions you will have during planning. You want something that fits well with what you and your partner are looking for and has enough room, so there isn’t any hassle on the wedding day.
Planning ahead is critical. Always draw up your guest list before choosing your venue, that way you will know your chosen venue gives you enough space for your guest count.
With these tips, you will be able to create a personalised and unique experience for your guests that leave them with memories they’ll cherish forever. You have one chance at being a bride or groom, so don’t let anyone else tell you what’s right from wrong on your big day. Do whatever makes you happy.
