The excitement from your engagement is no doubt some of the most special times in a couple’s early life together. Once that calms down, planning and discussing comes next of where and how you’ll want to be married unless you’ve already discussed that with your fiance. Each wedding can be as unique as each couple that gets married, though there are centuries of traditions to work from, both from cultural society and passed down in families. There is also always the opportunity to make your special day committing yourself to your beloved, your very own. Let’s look at a few ways to do just that:
Venue options. Aside from choosing the traditional church or wedding chapel, you might consider parks, properties that are event-friendly, renovated barns, wineries and breweries, tree farms, golf courses and the like. Don’t limit yourself to the expectations of others, and you’ll be amazed at what you can find for your special day!
Jewelry. It’s easy to consider walking into a shiny, large, jewelry store full of diamonds and gold, but do you know about more customizable options like ecologically friendly and labor safe diamonds and wedding ring sets? Even if you’re very traditional and classic in your style, you might find it curious and fascinating to explore other non-traditional yet classic and stylish options available to you and your fiance. Afterall, you’ll both be wearing these rings for years and years to come, so you’ll want it to be exactly what you want and what speaks to you. It’s quite common to deviate slightly from traditions, so don’t be afraid of a few more options before deciding on your wedding rings together.
Catering and decorations. This is where many weddings can make a strong stance of showing the personality of the couple. From custom cakes to ice cream bars, extravagant decorations and gift bags for guests, the possibilities when it comes to catering and decorating for your wedding and reception are as endless as your imagination. Catering can be more than a bland chicken breast and tasteless sides, it can be as mouth watering as your favorite dish at your favorite restaurant. Your wedding day is the day to go all out, to share with your friends and family what you prioritize most in life, and sharing your favorite meal with them on a grand scale does exactly that.
Whether you’re going big and grand, or going small and intimate, your wedding day is one of the most memorable times of your entire life, and making it personalized and uniquely your own, whether working within cultural traditions or starting your own altogether. Your fiance and you will be a whirlwind of emotions and need to have everything else in order to allow yourselves to be present in the moment on your big day. Leave the heavy lifting and thinking to someone else and maintain a checklist to keep everyone organized will be hugely helpful along the planning path. Congratulations, you’re getting married!
