One of the biggest traps you might fall into when you plan your wedding is feeling like it has to look like a “normal” wedding. After all, you’ve probably seen the same kind of wedding again and again across all kinds of media; from movies to TV shows, books, and more, they pretty much all have the same basic appearance.
However, don’t let that make you think for a second that your wedding has to look like that. Ultimately, the only thing that matters when you plan your wedding is that you make something that both you and your partner are going to love.
So, to help you plan a wedding that is truly unique to what you and your partner love, this article aims to highlight some interesting ideas to keep in mind.
Spend Time Planning with Your Partner
Taking the time to carefully plan your wedding together with your partner is one of the best ways to make sure that you can create an event that feels deeply meaningful to both of you.
Creating a celebration of love and connection together like this is a great way to show each other just how much you care and how much you mean to one another, not to mention how well-suited you are for one another. After all, sharing a day this special with one another is a great way to show how ready you are to spend a life together – and that sharing starts with the plan.
Pick the Right Venue
Every single choice you make in wedding planning is important, but very few are as important as choosing your venue. After all, your location will have an impact, unavoidably, on every other element of your wedding plans.
As a result, this is a great way to start your plans with your partner; whether you are looking through venues for a lavish wedding reception or you are searching for isolated little intimate locations, there is trust inherent in making this choice together. The trust of knowing that the other is willing to tell you if they are unhappy – and the trust of knowing you can work it out together.
Themes are Great Options
Of course, if you are having trouble thinking of ways to tie everything together, then you might want to consider a theme for your wedding. Themes are a great option because they give you a way to tie a thread through everything, and you can almost always pick something that you both deeply love as the theme to make sure that thread is meaningful to you and your partner.
It’s also important to remember that you don’t have to be overt with the theme. It can be something as simple as a color scheme or a pattern.
Plus, by making the theme a subtle undercurrent, you can even evoke a sense of private connection between you and your partner – an understanding between the two of you that you can see the theme in your wedding, even if most other people wouldn’t.
A way to even further claim the day for yourselves.
Plan from the Heart
Finally, remember that your wedding is – at the end of the day – a celebration of love between yourself and your partner. It should be wholly, unapologetically you. So, if nothing else, try to stay honest with yourself and plan from your heart; that’s how you will create a truly wonderful wedding.
