If you are still in the planning stages of your wedding, then don’t be alarmed, but you may not be planning the most perfect wedding just yet. Although every wedding is admittedly different, we’ve come to realize a few key aspects that are paramount to having the best wedding possible. Here is where we list the top features that you should definitely consider in order to have a fantastic wedding for the ages!
Consider An Outdoor Wedding – Nothing screams elegance and grace like walking down the aisle with a beautiful mountain setting behind you, or a beachfront wedding if you really want to go all out. As much as you may feel more comfortable with an indoor wedding, exposing yourself to the elements can really make for a memorable experience. Just make sure that you select a location that is well-known for having good weather, particularly around the time of the wedding itself. And always have a backup plan in case the weather forecast appears to be trending in the wrong direction as you get closer and closer to your big day. Alternatively, you can just plan for the wedding reception to be outside while the main ceremony takes place indoors, so that you can have the best of both worlds!
Well-Planned Live Music – Although you almost certainly have live music planned for your wedding, you very well not may have said live music planned out well. There are so many things to consider when it comes to live music (starting with the actual musicians you decide to hire for the big day itself), that it is very easy to miss something and end up being unsatisfied with how the music portion of your wedding ceremony and reception go (that or your guests are left unsatisfied, which is also not something the bride and groom want). To help you ensure that your live music is perfect for the wedding day, check out this list of top 9 wedding music mistakes. Avoid those mistakes and you are well on your way to great live music, just as you have always envisioned.
A Thoughtful Guest List – You definitely may be tempted to invite everyone you possibly can to your wedding, and in a lot of cases, that is certainly something that can be done without any problems. However, sometimes, inviting too many people can dilute the intimacy of the entire event, especially when you start inviting people that you barely know. Or worse yet, you end up inviting people who clash with others at the party, ruining the entire atmosphere for everyone involved. Your wedding ceremony and the reception in particular are certainly celebratory events, but don’t be shy from being even the slightest bit selective when it comes to your guest list.
As we said earlier, every wedding is different. Having said that, there are a few key elements that any conventional wedding needs to have for it to have the potential of not just being a decent wedding, but an amazing one that will be remembered for the rest of your life. Ok, so you probably will remember your own wedding for the rest of your life regardless, but if you can pull off a perfect wedding with the tips above, your friends and family will remember it fondly and forever just as you will! And that’s something that we all should certainly strive for!
