So it’s oficial, with buying a house, keeping up with a lively 9 month old and working around the blog and commission, planning a wedding just hasn’t happened. So we have delayed it a year…part of me was rather sad to delay, but having still not found our dream venue, I didn;t wnt to setle and have a rushed wedding. Because let’s be honest. We both want it to memorable…for the right reasons. So I’m still stucj at square one, so I’m considering bringing back Wedding Wednensday’s to try and focus my mind a bit more. But until then here’s some wedding inspiration.
When you get married, there are some things that you need to happen. There are certain legal requirements; that is why you have to have a registrar there. The lines like ‘I call upon these persons here present’ have to be said. No getting around it. The vows, however, can be whatever you want them to be. If you don’t want to go with the set vows, then you can always write your own, add some humour with inside jokes between you and your partner, and make it that more special,hearing their own words on your special day. Plus how often do people write their own vows? You could always frame them afterwards for a lovely keepsake too. Hand written decalrations of love..
Let’s talk about tradition. If your lookijg for a more unique wedding to wow your guests, you might not want to go for the obvious transport choice of a Rolls Royce or a horse-drawn carriage, I’ve seen so many different ways the bride has got to the church, fire engine, tractor, bike…you’d be surpised. Think outside the box.. I don’t know if it’s just me, but I’m not overly bothered about transport. I’ll happily put a few trailing streamers on the back of our car.. that will do me..
Traditionally, the father of the bride, the groom, and the best man give speeches at a wedding. You don’t have to do it that way, of course. If the bride would like to give a speech too, then go ahead and give a speech. One of your bridesmaids might want to give a speech or perhaps one of the couple’s mother might. There is no need for everyone to give a speech, though. Choose three or four people otherwise the speeches would last a long time. There are a lot of crazy wedding ideas online, so search for some other inspiration and ideas.
A lot of weddings take place in a church, registry office or a hotel. If you want to go ahead with a ceremony at a venue like this, then great. You can make the wedding unique by the way that you decorate and the things that you do. If you’d rather have a unique venue, then think about something that would be different to any other wedding. How about getting married in a public park or something out there like a theme park or on a boat. Here’s to planing weddings….one day…
