A great marriage starts with a truly special wedding – Here’s how to “I do” in style
As fall and spring are the two most popular seasons for engaged couples to finally tie the knot, this week I’m dedicating a post to all of you who are getting ready for the big day. And as a little wedding gift, I’m listing my favorite “marriage-movies”, starring a spectacular wedding with a twist – enjoy, and congratulations… or “mazal tov”!
The biggest day in most couple’s lives is their wedding day. There is so much preparation that goes into planning a great wedding. Taking the time to make sure all of the important aspects of a wedding are taken care of should be a top concern. Finding a way to make their ceremony unique is a top concern. There are so many different ways lovebirds can make their ceremony special and customized. So let’s line up some of the things that a couple needs to think about when trying to make their wedding ceremony really special.
A Theme Can Go a Long Way
The first thing that a person needs to think about when trying to get a custom wedding is the theme that they will use. There are so many different things that a theme can do for a wedding and among the most beneficial is to give it a direction. Once a theme is chosen, a couple will be able to make other decisions using the chosen them as their guideline. If unsure about what type of theme to choose, a couple will need to seek out the council of a wedding planning professional.
Another great way for a couple to customize their wedding is by getting unique jewelry. Finding things like black wedding rings for men or wooden ones for a woman, the couple will be able to get the customization they are looking for. Hiring the right jewelry supplier, like north wood rings, will make getting the right jewelry much easier. Be sure to order the custom jewelry well in advance to avoid having to wait until after the ceremony to get it. The jeweler should be able to offer custom engravings and other special additions that will help to make the rings more unique.
Personalized Wedding Vows
When trying to customize a wedding ceremony, the couple can also opt to write their own wedding vows. There are a number of different ways to do this and each couple will have their own likes and dislikes. Being able to tell the one you love exactly how you feel in your own words can be very powerful and memorable. The last thing that any couple wants is to have their vows written out by someone else.
The more customization a couple has in their wedding ceremony, the more memories they will ultimately be able to make. Be sure to talk with a wedding planner to get some ideas on what can be done to make a wedding ceremony special.
