As we head towards the third decade of the twenty-first century, more and more people are choosing to have their special day of union with their partner in private settings amongst their closest friends and family. It’s not that the religious ceremony has lost its appeal; it’s that folks are looking to new settings with new possibilities for creating those all-important memories that are bound to stay with them for the rest of their lives. Here are some tips that’ll help you curate the most dazzling of weddings in whichever private setting you choose.

Get the Basics Sorted

When it comes to a wedding, there are one or two things you’ll want to set up first, such as an invites and attendees list, a seating plan and, of course, the venue itself. These logistical elements will feel the least razzmatazz, although it’s pretty exciting to get your invites into the post! However, these elements are what will bring your whole event together. Planning with your partner and with the help of family and friends to select a venue that’s both stunning and practical will allow you to add all the flourishes listed below.

Get Unique Musicians

As a couple, you’re utterly unique, with your own set of wonderful memories, tastes, fads, quirks, and jokes. This individualism certainly spreads to music taste and will be especially pertinent when choosing a ‘first dance’ song and the music that’s played at the wedding. Of course, you’ll want it to be as meaningful and blissful as possible. Live music is always a show-stopper, so if you’ve got friends who can play a chord or two, or you know a great local band that plays your sort of stuff, then get them involved in creating the vibes for your big day.

Interior Design With Gusto

Usually but not necessarily the preserve of the lady in the relationship, designing the wedding’s internal design elements will bring your event to life while injecting a good deal of your flair, creativity, and character into proceedings. With control over everything from lighting to the spacing of the chairs, this is your chance to indulge in minimalist tendencies, or to cover the room with colorful flowers – best bought from a wholesale wedding flowers distributor. People love a spectacle, so if your budget allows for one, don’t hold back.

Don’t Adhere to Tradition

As rules are there to be broken, tradition is there to be deviated from. Remember that when adults reach a certain age, they’re going to weddings most weekends of the summer months, and are willing to spend a lot to celebrate with you in your special way. It’s all reliant on your personality, again: horse riders could gallop from the venue, while skydivers could parachute in. The key is to use your wedding to celebrate who you are as a couple as well as the loving decision you’re making to join in matrimony in front of your nearest and dearest.

Planning a wedding is probably one part fun to two parts stress. There’s a lot to think about! Hopefully, these hot tips will give you some ideas to make your wedding as memorable as it is unique.
