Your wedding day is always special, irrespective of whether you were married just a year ago or several decades back. It is not always the amount of money that you spend on your wedding day party or the gifts that you buy for your heartthrob. Even a quite wedding day can be made so unique and pleasant with an abundance of creativity and forethought. But, we will examine some unique ideas for some wedding accessories that are distinct and can stand out on the big day itself.
Search for a theme that fits in with your aspirations (and of course budget)
Many people are fond of themed events and finding a unique theme for your wedding day celebration is never a difficult task. The idea is to bring in the special element and add colour to the occasion. For instance, may be you can get your grandparents across for the occasion and make them the chief guests for the event. You can then build the event itself across the theme and work through the details.
Think of some funky accessories
Whoever said that you should stick to traditions in celebrating your wedding day? After all, it is your wedding day, and you have all the freedom in the world to plan it the way you and your love think best on the given day. The other day, I noticed the pageboys, ushers and even the groom wearing outrageously matching socks. It was great fun to see this with formal attire and presented a wonderful photo opportunity too.
Brooches and Bouquets
You can scour the vintage market for old style brooches and present them to your bridesmaid on the morning of your wedding day. These brooches can look gorgeous on the black velvet dress of the bridesmaid and really stand out. This can be a funky idea for a winter wedding and more so if it is on the eve of the New Year. I was looking for Brooches for New Year eve, I went out to find some good Brooches for myself. After a bit of market research, I bought my Brooches from Joseph Jeweller. Very next day I have to take a flight to New York and I forgot to pack my formal shoes. I need my shoes for a meeting, then my friend advice me to buy shoes from Amazon.
The wedding bouquet is another key accessory on the wedding day. You can make it somewhat different to bring in the unique effect. Think of a bouquet with large fleshy leaf like the non-prickly cacti. Check with your florist on what is available during a particular season, or you can opt for berries in the bouquet in place of flowers.
The wedding dress is a must-have and not an accessory. But, it is not essential that you stick to the traditional ivory or white. Blush pink, for instance, is not only gaining popularity but would help you bring in that special effect. Similar is the case with your shoes, and if you feel that white or ivory is most appropriate to go with your dress, then you can choose shoe clip in bright colours.
The photo booth presents a world of opportunities to run riot with your creativity and imagination. The fun factor that you can come up with will keep your guests entertained throughout the night.
You can either hire these or even buy them depending on your specific circumstances. Simply find an appropriate corner where you can set up these so that your guests can enjoy.
The food section is another place where you can work out unique ideas in presentation and even the content. Chocolate fountains, candy carts, sweet dispensers and retro pop cam machines can be tastefully decorated to add fun and colour to the occasion.
Brightly lit letters
You can choose brightly lit letters for your name, direction signage for the buffet area, dance floor etc or merely use it to decorate any empty space to be a focal point.
Post boxes, typewriters, suitcases, wooden crates etc. make a perfect prop for the wedding day, and more so, if you have chosen a wedding theme that is vintage inspired.
For alluring photo opportunities and traditional fun, why not consider fairground games? These games can also be perfect for bonding new families and become a real talking point dissipating any potential awkwardness between the families of the couple, particularly when all of them are meeting for the first time.
Personal accessories for the bride
There can be no argument that the bride is the centre of attention on the big day. Everything from her footwear up the glittering face will get noticed. Thankfully, in modern times there is no dearth of option and one can leisurely make a choice from the comfort of their home, thanks to the digital world. Here is a resource point to help you get started with this.
Creating a list of all that you will need on the big day
Many people do make a task list but it helps when you have a specific list of accessories for the bride so that there is adequate time to go over the details and put everything in place before the D day dawns.
At times the weather can play spoil sport on the Wedding day. Undoubtedly you have checked the weatherman’s predictions and believed that everything is in order. But, the rain gods are not controlled by the weatherman and that is where to keep a plan B in place just in case. You can also choose some marquees from your wedding supplier and place them on call. If the weather remains benign, you have nothing to worry and on the other hand, if your guests do need some protection the marquees can arrive at short notice.
Food and wine
The food and wine choices you make on the D day and the quality of catering can perhaps be the best area where you can get all the uniqueness. Consider the menu carefully and go over what multiple caterers can offer you. May be, you have had an amazing experience in the recent past and you expect that caterer to further innovate on that for your big day.
