Planning your wedding details can be overwhelming at times, there seem to be so many items to prioritize. Here is a list of the top 4 enhancement items we recommend to make your wedding day stand out from all the rest. It’s the uncommon touches that truly make your wedding day memorable for you and all your guests.
1. Hire a Professional Wedding Coordinator
Let a professional manage the coordination and allowing yourself to enjoy the moment should be number 1 on the list of a bride’s priorities. After all, this day comes only once in a lifetime! Your Wedding could not be more important, with vows, photos, guests, toasts and many other precious moments. Ensuring you can be at ease and fully present to enjoy your day is a must. Having a wedding coordinator making sure all your careful planing is flawlessly executed will reduce any stress you might be feeling. Someone with experience will know exactly how to bring your vision to life, troubleshoot anything that doesn’t go according to plan, and come to you with solutions to make sure your day is everything you hoped it would be.
2. A Dramatic Wedding Entrance
Arriving for the ceremony is the first experience guests have. Featuring something that will set the ceremony apart from any others they have attended in the past is sure to be a crowd pleaser. Consider having a Harpist or a String Quartet playing contemporary music for your guests as they arrive. Musicians can stay through the ceremony and provide the music for your walk down the aisle as well as play that special song when it’s time to kiss the bride. Personalize the ceremony space with florals, an aisle runner and perhaps some rented seating if the venue allows it. Another great idea for a ceremony experience, would be setting up a beverage station to welcome guests while they greet each other and take a seat for the ceremony. These are just a few ideas of what you can do to help make your guests comfortable, get them to meet each other so they can enjoy the ceremony and later the reception.
3. Mood Lighting
Never underestimate the power of good lighting. Many studies have shown the effect lighting and certain colors have on the mood of an individual. Utilize combinations of different lights and colors to provide a fun and relaxing environment. Lighting has the power to change your event, taking your guests from a solemn ceremony to a relaxed dining experience and later turning it up for entertainment and dancing. There are many new technologies emerging that incorporate lighting and projection as well. Be sure to include that extra touch to really wow your guests.
4. Wedding Photography & Timing
Beginning a wedding at the correct time is essential to capturing the best photos for your album. A good photographer will be a master of light and the best ally in this department. Meet with a photographer well in advance to discuss what the best times to capture great photos during and after your ceremony are. This time will vary wildly depending on your location, the date and your personal preferences. The photos taken on this day will be with you for a lifetime, so make sure to capture as much of the moment as possible.
