Do you find that most weddings feel and look the same, that’s why yours has to break out of that mold? You can ensure yours is different from the usual matrimonial celebration by keeping your eyes on the trends and opting out of them. This is one of the keys behind the art of doing things differently for a wedding day.
Doing a Unique Wedding Right
However, when working in unique ideas for one of the most important days of your life, it’s best not to overdo it. Popular wedding event planners in Dubai say the event should not feel too unfamiliar that the wedding loses its meaning. Always remind yourself of what the occasion is all about:
- It the official union between two people who love each other.
It’s also the coming together of families.
It’s a celebration for a couple that has made the important decision to spend the rest of their lives together.
It’s an opportunity to have fun with all the people who matter to you.
Therefore, if you want to switch things up for your wedding day to create an event like no other, inject your quirky ideas appropriately. Do so in the aspects of the day that are not necessarily solemn.
Say, for the ceremony, the entrance does not need to be just a march, especially if you’re not at a worship place. If you and your entourage are a talented bunch, you can use that as a chance to show off your personality. After all, your character is partly responsible for the commitment that will be sealed that day.
You can also be playful and witty with the wedding vows. A vow should be sincere and not just a few lines that the minister requests you to repeat.
Stick to What You Want for the Party
The wedding party or reception is the part of the event where you can put your novel ideas into action. More so, if your guests are limited to the closest people in your lives.
The idea here is, the people who love you the most will always understand your crazy plans. If they were willing to travel across the world for your grand destination wedding, it’s safe to assume that they are game for anything.
You will find that what you basically want for your wedding is for everybody’s enjoyment. Thus, to solidify your awesome ideas, gather your closest friends and family who were present in the most joyful moments of your life so far. Reminisce and brainstorm about what made the fun-est events in your life memorable.
From this conversation, you will get a better idea of the details that can ensure everybody’s grand ole’ time.
It Helps to Compartmentalize Your Wedding Day
Compartmentalizing the event is another key to nailing a wedding day to go down in history. By dividing the ceremony and celebration or party into different parts, you can better identify the things that you can do differently.
For example, if there’s going to be a part with dancing to a live band. Think carefully about how this part of the event can be zany for those who actually love to dance. At the same time, find a way to entice the often non-dancing guests to leave their seats and bust some moves (albeit awkward). Veteran wedding planners advise turning the dancing into a game as well.
Or, with the food, you can make it a more interactive experience. ‘Can’t think of a way to do that flawlessly? Check out Coca-Cola’s amazing Share-a-Coke campaigns.
Never Just for the Sake of Being Different
The art of doing things differently for a wedding should always be rooted in the desire to elevate the satisfaction level of everybody. Think of what can bring you and the people who matter to you more smiles, hugs, laughter, words of gratitude, well-wishes through the event.
With this thought in mind, coming up with unexpected implements to make your wedding the wedding to remember can become easier and the perfect starting point to a happiness-filled celebration.
