Ways To Make Your Wedding Stand Apart

Updated: Jul 20, 2020

Both brides and grooms want to create a perfect wedding day, in a similar way as they are planning their ideal future together. The real challenge is how to make your wedding memorable, unique and beautiful. How can you create a wedding day that is far from normal and guests for years to come will rave about this day? We share some ideas on making that day memorable.

Be Bold and Beautiful with Florals

Everyone uses soft and pastel flowers so instead use vibrant colors to add little bit drama. Violets can bring a palette of deep purples and blues that coordinate perfectly with the coastal scenes of Maine or fall wedding. Although roses are a classic element to any bridal bouquet, using lilac and lavender can bring richness in color and fragrance.

Be a gracious host

As you plan the details of your day, it’s good to think about the day’s events from the perspective of your guests. You may have family traveling some distance to attend your wedding. Leaving a care package with treats at the hotel is a great way to let your guests know you thought about them. If your ceremony is a separate location then your reception, consider providing transportation to each of the venues from their hotels. This will help get your guests there on time and safely. Take advantage of the transportation and plan unique locations to make your day special such as Maine’s coastline for your ceremony and then a countryside farm for your reception.

Consider the indoors

Many brides and grooms are planning an outdoor wedding in Maine. But there are plenty of unique options for indoor weddings with industrial feels like Maine’s museums, breweries, lofts, farms or enclosed rooftops. Such venues will not only make your event stand apart but also provide a little of edge and sense of coziness and intimacy especially for winter weddings.

Serve something different

Chicken and beef are the common choices for reception sit down dinners or buffets. But if it isn’t your favorite, why not give your guests a break from the ordinary. A wedding planned in Maine is perfect to offer your guests seafood. You can also change drinks from the usual house wine or champagne to craft beers and cocktails.

Invest in Entertainers

Sometimes while planning the formalities of a wedding, couples overlook planning entertainment for their reception. Or they simply have run out of energy on this part of the planning. Fortunately, professional musicians and DJ have performed at many weddings so couples can leave the planning to the experts! All it generally takes is one meeting with the musician or DJ and they will give your guests a night to remember. Just make sure to book ahead and confirm their availability.

Every detail you plan makes your wedding day perfectly yours. Including the personal features will bring character and uniqueness to your ceremony and reception. You and your guests will reminisce on anniversaries years to come.
