For most people, their wedding is a day they’ve been looking forward to their whole lives. Many have a vision of the perfect occasion. Few people want a basic ceremony. They want a grand affair that matches the grand feelings that they have in their heart. It isn’t about making it “Instagram-worthy.” It’s about taking the time to put some real thought and preparation into a very special occasion. If you want your wedding to stand out, do the following.

Set the Scene

The backdrop of the wedding should be splendid, but the focal point should be the bride. All the colors should complement each other and serve to make the bride shine. You should spend some time on the visual appeal of the venue. If you’re looking for an outdoor setting, make sure that there is plenty of green grass and beautiful flowers. If it’s inside, it’s a good idea to decorate with candles, lace, drapes, and flowers. Give the place a personal touch with a theme that is meaningful to the two of you. There really is no wrong way to do it as long as you both like it. However, keep in mind that you will remember the occasion fondly if you remember that it is a wedding first, and a party second.

Make It Entertaining

Weddings are more enjoyable with a good crowd of happy people. You can make sure that the place stays buzzing by providing some quality entertainment. When choosing your entertainment, you may want to consider the types of people that are going to be present. Small children don’t generally understand the importance of weddings. They usually don’t enjoy sitting around in formal clothing either. You can keep them entertained and out of the way by having a separate room for the kids with a movie and games. For the formal parts of the wedding, you may wish to have classical music played over speakers or by live musicians. For the party portion, change it up with some lively tunes. You can try new ideas that make guests feel a part of the celebration.

Practice Your Dance

It’s a sad fact of life, but many people these days are born with two left feet when it comes to partner dancing. Most wedding couples struggle to perform a simple dip or twirl without stepping on the dress or tripping over their feet. You can make your wedding dance really stand out if you practice. This will help you feel more comfortable and allow you to enjoy the romantic occasion. If you don’t have any experience with dancing, taking a dance class can help you to learn some great moves.

As you work on the wedding plans, keep in mind that your wedding shouldn’t be about impressing others. It should be about setting the stage for a very intimate sharing of love between you and your significant other.
