Three Ways To Wow Your Wedding Guests

Before wedding season really kicks into high gear again, I thought it was a great time to share some FAQ and informative wedding planning posts for all you lovely couples getting married. Back in September I blogged about how to ensure you have an amazing wedding day and, today, I am sharing three ways that you can set your wedding apart from the rest of the to-be-wed pack! To make your day as beautiful, meaningful, and unique as it can be. To set the most incredible scene for the best day of your life. And to absolutely wow your guests, to leave them talking about your wedding for weeks to come!

1. Paper Goods!

From your Save the Dates and Invitations to your ceremony programs and wedding signage, beautifully designed paper goods really set the expectations for your day right out of the gate. Your invitation designer can create not only gorgeous invitations and programs, but also custom coasters, signature drink signs, escort cards, menus, and all the pretty little day of details you can imagine! And these details go a long way in not only making your wedding an experience no one will forget, but also one that leaves your guests thinking just how very YOU your wedding was. Your designer can even create a wedding ‘logo’ for you that can be used on all of your paper goods that would really tie your day together from start to finish!

2. Rentals!

The sky is the limit for creating your wedding space! And utilizing some of the amazing wedding rentals resources out there to create an amazing space for your big day can play a big role in it! Don’t feel limited to your average round table and floor length linens, there is so much more out there! If you are doing your dinner family style, you can have gorgeous long wood farm tables. Or if you love a little modern chic, you can get fabulous lucite ghost chairs. Not only can you pick incredible tables and chairs for your reception, but you can also create inviting lounge spaces for your guests. Having these cozy little spots of pretty arm chairs and cocktail tables for your guests to gather at and chat is such a beautiful little luxury that you can really add something special to your day. And if you really want to amp up the pretty, rent some stunning glassware for your signature cocktails or pretty vintage trays for your late night sweets.

 3. Florals Florals Florals! 

THIS is a big one! This is the one area I so regret not giving enough love to on my own wedding day, because it can really elevate every wedding so so much! I personally think that gorgeous florals, from stunning bouquets to oh so pretty ceremony and reception decor, can absolutely make a wedding! Hire an incredibly talented professional to make your day really WOW! Don’t take on the stress of doing it yourself. Share your vision with someone who knows how to take your vague descriptions of color, texture, and mood…and make it something that will take your breath away! You will not regret it!!!

I guarantee these three things (or even just focusing on one of these things!) will set your wedding day apart from everyone else’s and, ultimately, create a wedding that is much more true to who you guys are as a couple because you have put the time and thought into making it just as you envisioned it and as you want your guests to experience it. So, go ahead and give them something to talk about Monday morning! (And, if this seems like A LOT to take on, but you are passionate about making your day amazing, definitely hire a planner who will make all this magic come to life for you!!!)
