With all the stress and distractions of dress hunting, guest list planning and family organising, you might forget the smaller details that make your wedding unforgettable. Don't worry, we have you covered. Whether it is extra special lighting or your wedding favours, these tips will help you.
Make sure that when your guests enter the reception or ceremony that they are either welcomed with something special or let them be blown away with a incredible decor moment. After all first impressions last forever.
Perhaps you can have a flower arch that they walk through or a fairy light canopy. You can have your waiters welcome them with an ice cold glass of bubbles or a delicious snack. This will set the mood for your wedding and make your guests feel spoilt from the first moment they arrive.
Signage and Directions
Always send your guest a very simple and easy to understand map so they don't get lost on the way to your wedding and risk being late.
Also make sure you have signage at the venue as there is not always someone to explain or direct them, make it self explanatory and convenient for your guests. This can also help carry your theme through and add decor to the venue.
Have A Special Guest Book
These days a book with a pen just doesn't entice people to write in your guest book. These are so many new and exciting ways to make your guest book and to keep it forever.
Make it fun for your guests so that it becomes an activity and they will be more likely to participate.
Whether you have giant Jenga blocks, perhaps a Polaroid camera or photo booth where the can stick their selfie and write a message next to it. You can also create an artwork where they can write on little hearts and insert them into a frame that you can hang on your wall to remind you of the special day forever.
Choose Epic Favours
Wedding favours are little gifts that you give your guest to remember the day and to say thank you for to them for attending. Make sure it is meaningful and special.
They can also double as name card and you can arrange them on your tables. Make or get something that will remind them of you and your groom.
Something I have personally always loved is lighting. It can set a mood and create an atmosphere for very little spend. If you prefer candles why not create a whole table with just candles, it makes beautiful soft and romantic light and looks good in photos. Plus you can always get scented candles and make your wedding not just look good, but smell good too!
Fairy lights are called just that as they create a fairytale look. But be aware if not don't correctly can end up looking kitsch.
We hope these tips help you create your unforgettable day.
