When you start planning your wedding one of the key things you need to ask yourself is what does this wedding mean to you? As you go through the process of piecing together your day, make sure at the core of it you remember always why you are there, and recognise what is relevant.
Bring your love legacy into your wedding day; within each part of your day look at capturing the history that brought the two of you together, whether it was a 10 year or six month
relationship, your wedding is an opportunity to recount your love story. Below are some ideas around what is important to include and what is important to think about within your day that sits outside styling and décor.
Travel might be an important aspect of your relationship so you may capture this in your day by including mementos from your travels or table names represented by countries.
A favourite saying you share between you or a song or words that are significant to you both could be included.
Photos connecting the audience to your story are a nice idea providing a reflection of you both as a couple or a moment in time.
Your story could be encapsulated within the order of service or within your ceremony content.
Cake might be your thing, so you could decide to have five different cakes with your favourite flavours at a tasting table or similarly beer or wine at a tasting station. Your guests could be served with a signature cocktail or the like.
By really honing in on telling your personal story you are making it an honest reflection of who you are as a couple. The key message here is not to lose sight of the following; where you have come from, how you have come to get married, what is important to you both and what is special and meaningful within the history of your relationship that needs to be captured within your wedding day.
