Steal their style!

Take some inspiration from Kate and Will’s spectacular wedding day and add some special touches that really say something about your personalities. Why not have a groom’s cake like William? He chose a chocolate biscuit cake to sit alongside the traditional design. Or why not reflect your nature-loving spirit like the royal couple and incorporate trees and nature into your big day? Or how about a wedding dress that goes against tradition, like this real bride? Go for something unique that will make your guests say ‘that is so them’.

Personalised wedding stationery

Whether it’s with a photo of you or the person you’re writing to, personalising your wedding stationery is a great idea. Adding these little touches to your invitations, thank yous and place cards will mean more to your guests than just standard stationery designs.

Why not save the confetti throwing until the end of the evening and let your guests shower you with petals during your last dance? It’s a great way to end the day and for budget-conscious brides, it’s much cheaper than having fireworks.

Add some romance

Make the most of the warm summer evenings and create an outside seating area that your guests can enjoy. Create a chill-out area with straw bales, blankets and cups of hot chocolate – the best of all the unique wedding ideas!

Unique speech inspiration

Give your wedding speeches an extra twist and get each speaker to be introduced by a family member close to them. For example, ask your grandad to introduce your dad and so on. This is a quirky twist on tradition and allows you to include even more members of your family in your special day.

Thank you goody bags

All good parties end with goody bags! Pop a mini bottle of bubbly, some chocolates and a special note in a cute little hamper basket. Ask the hotel staff to place these gifts in the rooms while the guests are still partying. It’s a fab finishing touch that shows them how much you really care.

Fun first dances

If you want to make a real occasion of your first dance, then why not add some candlelight for a really romantic touch? Dim the lights and let yourself get lost in the moment. Choreographed first dances are all the rage right now. Why not learn the moves from a famous film or music video and perform them as your first dance? Dirty Dancing and Thriller are particular favourites!

If you really want to surprise your other half, why not rock the party with your own dance routine like this groovy groom…

Cater for young and old

Make sure that no one feels left out at your evening reception by playing songs from lots of different eras. Ask your DJ to play a mixture of tunes that both young and old guests will enjoy. That way, you’ll have a full dance floor all evening. Why not ask guests to include their song requests with their RSVPs? That way, your can really personalise your evening music and make the party unique to you!
