You may have seen our article in this month’s Four S hires magazine on how to create a truly unique wedding. If not, here it is!

Wedding season is in full swing and it’s more than likely that if you are planning your own wedding, you have a list of invitations from friends and family who are also getting married in the not too distant future. So how do you set your own wedding apart from the rest and ensure that it is remembered as a great occasion not just by yourselves but your guests too?

Here are a few top tips that won’t break the bank for achieving a truly unique wedding.

  • Personalise. Start by thinking about what characterises your relationship; what hobbies do you have and how do you spend your time. Then:
  • Pick a theme.  Memorable weddings will follow a certain theme that reflects your personalities; which involves showing continuity from beginning (invitation) right through the wedding to the final thank you cards. You may choose a very specific theme, for example recently at Crockwell we had a lego themed wedding! But it doesn’t need to be; you may be aiming for formal elegance, relaxed romance or city chic but whatever you choose, try to stick to it.
  • Choose a flexible venue. The more flexible your venue is, the more chance you have of creating a very personal experience, for you and your guests. Having access to the venue well in advance (the day before the wedding) is hugely helpful if you are hoping to add those personal touches.
  • Do your research. When it comes to decorating, there’s a wealth of ideas out there from Pinterest to Instagram and if you have time to search, you will be able to find those touches that  provide delight and conversation for your guests from interesting reception drinks to table favours, photo booths and decorations.
