Ways to Set Your Wedding Apart from the Rest

Your wedding should be one of the most important days of your life. All that matters is how you and your partner feel about your special day. Of course, everyone wants to make sure that their wedding stands out in the minds of their loved ones. Whether you’re just about to start wedding planning or are already months into the process, check out the following tips to make your wedding one to remember.

Spice up the Menu

This idea is a great way to bring back your home into your wedding, even if the event itself is thousands of miles away from where you grew up. The typical wedding meals can become routine and boring — spice up the menu with favorites from your hometown or state.

If you or your partner are from New Orleans, why not serve your guests some authentic gumbo or jambalaya? If you’re like me and grew up in Texas, consider serving some barbeque that will make you and your guests feel right at home.

Don’t Forget about the Rehearsal Dinner!

Your rehearsal dinner is another way in which your wedding can stand out from the rest of the crowd. Your rehearsal dinner serves not only as a chance for the rest of the wedding party to practice their roles, but an opportunity for the party to spend time one another before the big day finally arrives.

Your venue is the perfect way to distinguish your wedding day from others. Many companies host wedding rehearsal dinners at unique, one-of-a-kind venues such as a yacht from Anita Dee Yacht Charter! These companies can also provide delicious catering and entertainment during the rehearsal dinner.

Customizing the Toast

The toast is one of the most important aspects of your wedding. This is time for your loved one’s to impart some words of love and wisdom to the newly married couple. But just because a toast happens at every wedding doesn’t mean that the toast has to be the same as every other wedding.

An easy way to differentiate your toast from the rest is letting your guest pick their beverage of choice. Make a bubbly bar that allows your guest to add sprigs and flavored ice cubes into their glass of champagne. They’ll be talking about the unique addition for years to come!

Of course, make sure to only include something in your wedding because you like it, not just because you think it’s trendy or will make others respect you more. The most important part of your wedding is celebrating the love between you and your partner — not the flashy aspects of your day. But, if you do find yourself wanting to breathe a bit of fresh air into your reception, these tips are a great starting point. If you’re working with a wedding planner, they will also likely have some tips to make your wedding both a day and night to remember. Happy planning, and congratulations!
