Bridal Guide: Tips to make your wedding unique
(StatePoint) Your wedding day will likely be one of the most memorable days of your life. With some creative planning, your nuptials can be as unique as your relationship.
“Whether you break the mold or go traditional, planning something special is all about customization,” says Mariam Naficy, CEO of Minted.com, an online stationery store. Here are some top customization tips for couples soon tying the knot:
•Pick a theme: A theme can really tie your affair together. Opt for one that is aesthetically appropriate for a wedding, and complementary to the venue. Whether you go with rustic chic or urban minimalist, your theme should express your style and inform your planning decisions on everything from food to music.
•Tell your guests with style: Informing your guests of the big news is the next step in planning your wedding. Do it early with unique save the dates, to ensure your loved ones can make it to your big day. It’s easy to customize the look and feel of your invitations when you order through an online stationery store like www.Minted.com.
•Live music: Even if you can’t spring for a ten-piece band, live music is a great investment. A live musician (or an exceptional DJ) will liven up the party by tailoring music on the fly, based on guests’ requests and the shifting mood of your party.
•A great space: If possible, avoid the standard hotel conference room. Many hotels have gazebos, verandas and other more elegant rooms to choose from. Or opt for a more non-traditional venue like a museum or art gallery.
•Delicious food: To provide food you know you and your guests will love, consider asking your favorite restaurant to cater your event.
So before you say “I do” to your loved one, say “I do” to a special day that’s all you.
