With so many options available to you and your big day, it is no wonder that couples feel overwhelmed when starting their wedding planning. If you’re wondering where to start in ways to make your wedding a memorable occasion, look no further – here, shares five ideas to make your wedding an event to be remembered for years to come.

1. Fancy dress hire

If you’re looking to keep guests entertained from noon to night, provide a dressing up box. By sourcing amusing outfits from fancy dress shops in your locality, you can set up an area at your venue where guests can create their own fun. Photobooths are a great way of encouraging your guests to dress up and pose with colourful props, while capturing the moment instantly with hard copy photographs to take home.

2. A dazzling dress

The talk on everyone’s lips will be the bride’s dress and the big reveal should be a ‘wow’ moment. Take a look at the latest trends in bridalwear and find a design that makes you feel like a princess. Think about complementing accessories, jewellery, hair and make-up to give your ensemble the final flourish and turn to the experts for their invaluable advice.


3. Delicious catering

Guests will always remember an outstanding catering service, and while traditional beef dinners remain a firm favourite there are so many alternative options out there. Informal feasting is becoming increasingly popular with street food, barbecues and taco parties proving a hit. Desserts are also seeing a shift with wedding cakes evolving in variety as well; couples are now opting for cheese cakes, macaron towers and cupcake displays instead of a traditional cake.

4. Make a grand arrival

From classic cars to VW campers, there are various ways to make an entrance like no other and travel in style during your big day. Dependent on your wedding theme, your method of transport should be a reflection of you and your partner’s taste, style and personality. Why not go glam in a head-turning Bentley or promote a vintage vibe with a lovingly restored Rolls-Royce? Take a look at the services available in your local area.


5. Personalise your day

By making your big day as personal as possible, your wedding will be unique on so many levels. Consider how you can customise your favours, stationery, cake and venue décor – the key is in the finer details that, on closer inspection, bring a smile to the faces of your wedding guests and leave a memorable mark.
