Weddings are a wonderful time for friends and family to celebrate the love of two special people in their life. While white steeple churches, red carpet, and organ music are staples of the traditional wedding, many couples are discovering new ways to express love for each other. Here are some tips that will surely put some magic and adventure into an otherwise dreary wedding venue this year.
Beaches are quickly becoming a favorite wedding venue for several reasons. The expansive shore will accommodate an almost infinite number of guests without worrying about stuffy or claustrophobia-inducing crowds. Another reason that beaches will make an ideal setting for a wedding is that it is more affordable. Whereas event halls might rent out their property, a public beach is free to everyone! Thirdly, the most obvious reason that beaches are great for weddings is that every guest can enjoy the sound of crashing waves and fresh air blowing through their hair as the two people they care most about exchange vows.
Another tip for creating a unique wedding this year is to create a theme for the reception that relates to how the couple fell in love. For example, if the bride and groom were high school sweethearts in the 90’s, decorate the reception hall in bright colors or play some favorite hip hop songs to get things going. Guests can dress up like the era’s most popular icons and party like it’s 1999.
Last but not least, wedding favors add a hint of spontaneity and class to any wedding. When picking out those last minute novelty items to help celebrate the big day, choose unique wedding favors that either go along with your wedding theme, or have a special significance to the bride and groom. Companies like American Bridal carry great wedding favors that range from picture frames to chocolates to his and her mini-lanterns that will inspire romance in all of us.
If the big day is quickly approaching, you still have time to make it an unforgettable occasion. Whether you decide to change up the environment or splurge with party favors this year, there’s no doubt that guests will remember your wedding day as a special hallmark in their life. These tips will not only create a more lively and adventurous wedding venue, but also help two people begin their lives together in a unique and special way.
