unique wedding ideasEvery bride wants her wedding and reception to be memorable — not only for her and her spouse but for the guests as well. It is becoming harder and harder to stand out from the crowd. If you can think of a theme, it has mostly likely been done already.

So, how can you make sure your wedding will stand out?

A theme is one of the best ways. Guests tend to remember themes more so than just a wedding color scheme or feel. Your theme should be something you are passionate about. No matter what the focus is, it always comes out better if you are totally in love with or crazy about whatever the subject of your theme.

These are just a few themes that are becoming more and more popular. The way to make them more unique is to come at the theme from many different directions. First, brainstorm — write down what it is about the theme or subject that you love. Break it down or make it more “niche” than just a general theme. Get to the bottom of why you love it and then highlight that in your wedding planning.

For instance: instead of just “vintage”, ask yourself to what era, style or decade you are most drawn. Once you know the answer, break it down farther. Why are you drawn to it? Is it the attire,¬†architecture, decor style, traditions, or what that you love.

When finished with your brainstorming, you will have a better idea of what you really love and why — as well as some awesome ideas you can incorporate into your wedding. It will be unique because it will be all about you and your likes and passions. Step out of the box and into your own unique style.

A word of caution — don’t let a planner, coordinator or florist try to turn your day into something from their dreams or steer you in a direction you don’t want to go because it’s easier. It’s one day — your day — and it’s worth any trouble it takes to make it a dream come true.
