A wedding is truly one of the most memorable days of your life; a chance to celebrate love while surrounded by family and friends. On your big day, you want everything to be perfect and you want it to be unique. Here are some ways that you can make your wedding truly unique:
Pick Your Own Flowers
Flowers are an integral part of any wedding. Little wonder then that they make up 7-8% of the wedding budget. They allow you to express your style and show off your creativity.
One of the first things you need to do is set a budget for wedding flowers. Your overall budget for your wedding will determine how much you can spend on flowers and you need to sit down and figure out what you’re comfortable spending. Keep in mind that as you’re looking at different arrangements or designs, your budget will be determined in part by the space that you’re going to be putting these flowers in.
Also, consult with a wedding florist. The florist has experience and can help you find flowers that will fit your budget, whatever color scheme you’re going for, plus whatever may be in season. Essentially, you want to find somebody who can help bring your vision to life.
Use Unique Materials for Decorations
These days, there are any number of options available when it comes to decorating. With endless amounts of ideas on the internet, it’s easy to get inspired and find an idea that you want to pursue to make your wedding truly unique.
One of the best ways to make your wedding unique is to use artificial flowers in bulk. Artificial flowers are not only cost-effective but they also look really good. So, if you are looking for a way to save money and still have a beautiful wedding, then this might be the perfect option for you.
Believe it or not, aluminum decor is actually catching on as a trend in wedding decor. You can choose to be bold and use aluminum as part of an all-metallic theme for your wedding or you can be more subtle with it and use aluminum decor to accent your overall theme.
What can you do with aluminum? You can make aluminum centerpieces to put flowers on each of your guests’ tables. You can also use it to make candle stands.
It’s been shown that primary metals often purchased by customers include aluminum, especially in bar, tube, and sheet form, as well as hot and cold rolled steel and stainless steel. If you’ve decided on aluminum, you and your friends can purchase it in bulk and use it to be as decorative with your wedding space as you need to be. Once you’ve got aluminum decorations, you can accent those with things like small LED lights to really make your decorations stand out.
Have Perks For Designated Drivers
There’s nothing wrong with having a good time during your wedding; heck it’s one of the more memorable days of your life. But having fun also means being careful. If you’re going to drink, you need to have a designated driver available, maybe for yourself but also for guests.
In Texas, the blood alcohol threshold for drunk driving is .08 and the last thing you, your partner, or any guest wants is to get in a bad accident or get a ticket for drunk driving on your wedding night. So it may be a good idea to ask several people to be designated drivers and show them how much you appreciate their help. You can pay them well for their help in advance and maybe give them a little bit extra since they’re being so helpful. You could also come up with a special kind of gift basket to give to those who are serving as the designated drivers. You might also encourage those being driven around to tip their designated drivers as a thank you.
Remember that your wedding day is just that: your wedding day. So don’t be afraid to enlist the help of family and friends to really get creative when it comes to decorating and really making your wedding one to remember.
