The Atmosphere

Above all else, the atmosphere of your wedding is what makes it feel so special. Being able to feel the joy and the love in the air can make any and all wedding events a memorable occasion, and that’s really all you need to make your wedding an amazing day. So be sure to keep this in mind when you’re worried about the way your wedding planning might be going - you just need a bit of happiness! 

Make it fun for the guests too. Send out quirky invitations, play some catchy music as they all turn up to the venue, set the lighting to be intimate and cozy - the little things that set the mood matter above all else. You can also set the dress code to be a little more relaxed to help people settle into the big day, especially if you’re inviting people who don’t really know each other. 

And once the vows have been said and you’re officially married, it’s time to throw the greatest party that’s ever been! Make sure the drinks and food flow, get a photo booth in the back to let people take funny selfies, and make sure there’s a song or two that’ll get everyone on the dancefloor. 

The Guestlist

Speaking of who’s coming to the wedding, making sure you’ve curated your guestlist well is another great way to ensure your big day feels special. You want the right people there, after all, and sometimes you’ve got to make sure a certain neighbor or family member isn’t around… This is your big day, and it’s up to you who you celebrate it with! 

To avoid as much drama as possible, invite only the people you want to see. Make sure there’s enough guests on either side of the couple, and always offer up a friendly and polite explanation for why someone isn’t invited if they get in touch. Most of all, don’t let yourself feel bad about making such a decision; you want the atmosphere to be set just right, and ultimately, you’ll still look back on this day as one of the best you’ve ever had. 

The Setting

Of course, the setting of your wedding is always going to be what tops off the magic of your big day. And when it comes to picking wedding venues, there’s a lot that goes into choosing the right backdrop according to you and your partner’s tastes. You need facilities that suit both of you, as well as somewhere big enough to host your guests and reception, and it needs to be a place that will suit your theme and style as well. 

Most of all, sometimes couples are forced to temper their expectations according to the funds they’re working with. But even if you’re worried about your own budget restrictions preventing your big day from being as special as you want it to be, you still have a lot of wiggle room available for your wedding’s setting! 

Remember, picking the right place to get married should take you a long time, and during that time you might be able to save up a bit more money. And similarly if you're on a budget, working with a venue that won’t force you to use their own catering facilities can save you a few hundred that can be used elsewhere. 

The Decor

It’s best to have a theme for the wedding, to make it easy and practical to decorate for. Make sure you sit down with your partner to talk about what you both want to see, and what kind of styles you enjoy. It’s also good to have some back up colors and styles on hand just in case the venue can’t pull off your first decision! 

Once you’ve got these basic ideas down, you can dress the set even further. What do you want on the tables? What curtains or drapes do you want to hang? Do you want balloons hung up, either in groups or an arch? And how intimate do you want the reception to feel? Ask yourself questions like these to decide on the different decor levels; the detail is easy to arrange, simply because there are so many items you can make or invest in for the perfect look! 

The Vows

Now we come to the real deal about your wedding: the vows. You and your partner will put all your heart and soul into these, and you may even end up crying while saying or hearing them, and that’s where the special part of your big day really lies. 

Writing your own vows is highly recommended, and usually the vows follow a certain pattern. Make it personal with a little anecdote, talk about how much you love your partner, and then make promises to them, including promising to always do your best. Start writing these as soon as you know you’re going to get married, to make sure you get some practice in! 

Wedding days feel special thanks to their loving nature. Focus on that and your big day will be an incredibly memory to look back on.
