10 Top Tips To go Big For Your Wedding Day
A wedding is a celebration of your and your partner’s love for one another, your vow to remain faithful and look after one another, and, finally, the day you stand in front of your loved ones and announce that you will spend the rest of your life together. Why not make it a day to remember with no regrets? Getting married is one of the top four most costly things you will ever pay for, so why not make it a day to remember with no regrets? Go big! It’s your wedding day!
One component of your wedding that you may jazz up a little is your wedding rings. Having custom-made bands fashioned to fit your and your partner’s preferences is a wonderful addition to any wedding day. It’s also possible to have them inscribed or have a wedding band with gemstones. It’s also a wonderful method to express yourself even more to your partner because it feels more personal than a traditional wedding band.
Another aspect of your wedding that, if done well, can make a significant difference on the big day. Where would you like to tie the knot? Here are a few of the most popular locations for tying the knot:
- Church (or Mosque, depending on your religion) – This is the most traditional option because it has been used to marry people for thousands of years. That isn’t to suggest that you have to be religious to marry in a church; if you or your partner have been baptized, you can marry in a church.
- The Beach – Haven’t we all fantasized about exchanging vows on a white sand beach with crystal blue waters? That may be a possibility for you if you’re nodding or maybe feeling warm inside at the notion of it.
- Many hotels now have the capacity to accommodate your wedding from beginning to end. Why not host your wedding in a plush, multiple star hotel with the extra benefit of all of your wedding guests having a room for the night?
- Landmarks – For many people throughout the world, getting married in front of their favorite landmark is a dream come true. Find out how to schedule your dream wedding with your partner at your favorite location by searching online.
- Sports grounds – This doesn’t have to imply being married on a football pitch; it might be on a beautiful golf course or in the countryside where you enjoy hiking.
There are, of course, a plethora of different locations where you can tie the knot. There are no restrictions on where you can marry, so if you have a dream, go for it. The more unusual your wedding is these days, the better.
Spending money on entertainment will also add a touch of sophistication to your wedding. Imagine saying your vows and then dancing the night away with all of your loved ones to your favorite songs. You might even be able to hire your favorite artist or band to play on your big day, depending on how large you can go with your budget.
Try and think of unusual entertainment that your guests won’t expect. Activities like card games can be turned into a friendly yet competitive evening that your guests will remember for a long time. Justin Bonomo is a three-time WSOP bracelet winner, so if you’re looking to tighten your poker skills, he’s definitely one to watch to impress your guests.
For many couples these days, having a choreographed dance routine for their first dance is becoming an increasingly popular option. We’ve all seen the videos of the bride and groom seeming to be having their first dance and then both of them unexpectedly breaking out into an energetic dance. Consider doing something similar, and be sure you tell someone who isn’t part of the dance routine so you can watch it again and witness your guests’ reactions.
Hair and makeup
It’s also important to make sure your hair, makeup, and nails are in tip-top shape for the big day. This is your big day, so don’t be disappointed that you didn’t hire a professional hairstylist and decided to save money by doing your own cosmetics. This day is all about you and your partner, so dress up and go down the aisle like a celebrity.
Having a professional wedding photographer will make a huge impact in the appearance and feel of your wedding. Imagine having a professional photographer capture every exquisite moment of your special day. You will not be disappointed with the images’ final outcome. Although cheaper photographers may seem tempting, everyone should consider splurging out and spending that extra money for first-class care and images of their special day.
Your wedding dress is likely something you’ve fantasized about since you were a child, so make sure you find the perfect one. If you’re good at drawing, sit down and sketch what you’d like to wear for your wedding dress. This will make it easier to choose the perfect dress when you go dress shopping. You might also visit with a designer to have your ideal dress created for you if you so desired. Whatever path you choose, make sure to get regular fittings, as wedding planning can cause you to lose a few pounds (yay!). If you’re not sure what style of dress you want to wear, head over to Pinterest, where you’ll find a plethora of bridal gown inspiration posts.
It’s also possible to style your invitations. There are companies that will do all of the hard work for you! You only need to send them a guest list. Often, businesses like this can even create custom invites for your bridesmaids and groomsmen. If you want to be really fancy, you can choose the type of invitation you want and then pay a calligrapher to write them for you. Calligraphy is a lovely writing style that will wow all of your soon-to-be guests. You may even choose to use custom wedding invites and thank you cards for thank you cards after the big day.
Making your big entrance
Many couples enjoy blasting their budget on their grand entrance. The opportunity to ride in your favorite vehicle is one that should not be passed up. There are no restrictions on what you can turn in on your wedding day, just as there are no restrictions on where you can get married. Popular options include:
- Older, more traditional cars
- Sports cars
- Bangers from the past (yes, some people choose to have a beaten up car)
- Fire engines, police vans, and other unusual vehicles.
Depending on your personality and sense of humour, you could make an unforgettable entrance to your wedding day that you and your guests will remember fondly for years to come.
It’s important to consider the food you’ll serve your guests. The last thing you want is for people to recoil in horror at the selection you’ve chosen. General favorites will always be a hit, and there’s no reason why they can’t be incorporated into a formal sit-down meal. You’ll almost certainly have eaten with the majority of your guests at some point, so consider what types of foods they enjoy and try to find a happy medium.
Finally, your honeymoon is something on which you should consider spending a little more money. This trip will be unlike any other vacation. It’s your first trip together as a married couple, and you’re probably thinking about starting a family soon (or having more children). Choose a luxurious location and be pampered so you can return home and begin your married lives together.
