Not everyone wants a large, all-white wedding. The months of planning and continuous small conversation can be exhausting and frustrating for people who don’t enjoy being the centre of attention, overshadowing the happiness one should experience on their wedding day.
Tying the knot is a common option for couples who don’t want a ‘normal’ wedding, but there are many ways to make your day unique with a small, low-key event if you still want your loved ones present.
You don’t have to endure a huge flowery dress or perspire while wearing a three-piece suit on your wedding day. Wear something that is comfy for you, whether it be a flowing jumpsuit, a long dress, or a pair of shorts. If you want, dress it up with a gorgeous pair of boots or keep it casual with some sandals or even some stylish shoes. Whatever you choose to wear, you can still match your spouse’s outfit for the perfect marital appearance.
Aesthetics and Hairstyles
It’s possible that you don’t let your nails grow or visit the salon frequently if you’re already fairly low maintenance. However, if you wanted to add some colour to your nails to make your wedding day even more memorable, you could purchase an acrylic nail kit and experiment with different designs, shapes, and patterns. You may create your nails exactly how you want them without having to visit a salon, too!
Numerous stunning wedding hairstyles are also simple to accomplish on your own or with a friend’s assistance. Try a crown braid for a more eclectic style, dress up a simple low bun with only a hair bobble and a few bobby pins, or add some soft waves and adorable hair ornaments to a classic ponytail.
Who cares if your preferred comfort food isn’t appropriate for a wedding. Why not have a brunch wedding if you’re more of an early bird? As more and more couples shy away from traditional, sit-down meals, this trend is on the rise. Hire a mobile bar for your wedding, serve up some of your favourite snacks, and offer a selection of drinks for guests to choose from.
There is nothing keeping you from ordering some delicious pizza or juicy burgers if you decide to go with an evening gathering. Give your guests the same cuisine that you and your partner enjoy by ordering takeaway or bringing in a food truck for a more jovial, relaxed eating experience. It will produce a more individualised atmosphere that is ideal for you.
Incorporate Fun and Games
To keep the day exciting and energetic, you can bring in some fun activities for your guests to participate in. Set up a slip ‘n slide or a kiddie pool (if it’s during the warmer months), rent an ice skating rink or host a scavenger hunt during the wintertime.
You can also make your own DIY games with the help of your friends and family. Have them come up with wacky challenges or tasks that you can do together before the reception, such as a three-legged race or a karaoke contest.
Keep the Big Day Low-Key and Intimate
When planning your wedding, keep in mind that a smaller, more low-key event can be just as memorable and special as a larger one. This is especially true if you make an effort to personalize the day with unique touches that reflect your personality and relationship.
Think about what is important to you and focus on creating an intimate atmosphere that celebrates your love. Cater the event yourself or order from your favourite restaurant, dress casually and comfortably, and choose fun activities that will get everyone involved.
With careful planning, you can create a wedding day that is perfect for you and your partner – without all the stress!
Incorporate Personal Touches
One of the best ways to make your wedding day unique is to add personal touches that reflect you and your partner. Maybe this means displaying photos of your loved ones throughout the venue, or having a special song play as you walk down the aisle.
You could also choose to do something more whimsical, like sending out handwritten invitations or placing a note with your wedding rings that reads “I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine.” These small details will show your guests that you’ve put thought and care into every aspect of the day and will make it all the more memorable for everyone involved.
A wedding day should be special and unique, so there is no need to follow the conventional standards of what a wedding should look like. By making an effort to personalise the event, you can create an unforgettable experience that will stay with you for years to come!
Enjoy Your Special Wedding
No two weddings are the same. With a bit of creativity and some personal touches, you can create the perfect day that is tailored specifically to you and your partner. Be sure to take time during the planning process to enjoy each moment and cherish the memories. After all, this is a once-in-a-lifetime event! Good luck with your special day!
