You want your wedding to showcase the special love you share with your future spouse while still looking elegant. However, that still gives you a lot of options for your decor, accents, wardrobe, flowers, food, and other choices for your wedding. From custom wedding rings to vows you write on your own, here are some tips you can use to make your beautiful wedding as unique as your relationship.
Get Custom Wedding Rings
You don’t have to buy rings that look the same as everyone else. Instead, you can get custom wedding rings that you and your partner design yourselves. It makes the rings that much more special when you design them together, and you’ll get exactly what you want.
Solitaire rings and simple bands are common, but you have a lot of customization options. For example, you might choose to forgo metal rings in exchange for wood bands. If you do choose metal rings, you might consider inlays made of wood, antler, precious stones, ceramic, or a contrasting metal. And, while people tend to choose diamonds for their wedding rings, you might look for other gemstones instead, like sapphires, emeralds, rubies, or other colored stones. Colored stones help make your customized ring pop.
Choose Unconventional Wedding Attire
Who says you have to wear a traditional wedding dress on your special day? While a white dress and black suit are common, it’s your day, so you should be able to wear whatever makes you feel your best. Talk to your partner about alternative options if you want to do something untraditional.
Brides can choose to wear pants, cowboy boots, over-the-top dresses, black dresses, swimwear, or anything else they choose. Grooms may choose to wear colorful suits, leisurewear, jeans, or even costumes. Often, your clothes will depend on the theme you choose for your wedding.
Personalize the Decorations
Your wedding should be about you and your spouse, so include personal touches in your decorations. Take pictures as a couple and put up the pictures on the walls throughout your venue. You can also incorporate pictures into the centerpieces or on side tables around the room. Don’t forget to demonstrate your silly side with some fun or goofy pictures of the two of you throughout your lives.
You can also decorate with a theme in mind that celebrates a common passion. For example, some people have Star Wars-themed weddings or camo-themed weddings.
Write Your Own Vows
Mere words alone can never express the depth of the love you share. However, you can do your best. Write in your own words how much you love your partner and what they do that makes you love them more and more every day. You don’t need to be a particularly good writer to write your own beautiful vows. Instead of worrying about the words, simply express your feelings. If you need somewhere to start, you may want to share a story from earlier in your relationship that demonstrates the love and support the two of you have for one another. You can also make specific promises to your partner as part of your vows.
Your wedding should be the most amazing day of your life. You don’t have to do it the way trends tell you to do it. Do it the way you and your partner want to do it to feel truly special to the two of you.
