Share You Love Story
You have a unique story and you have many different stories about your love that you can share. You can be creative with how you tell your story. You can ask one of your bridesmaids, or grooms men to do a toast and share the story, or you can do a photo collage on the wall. Some people enjoy telling their story to guests others document it with a video, or an artistic approach. Whatever your style, share your message and love story with guests. It will be inspiring and entertaining.
Combine Family Seating
Wedding are more untraditional then ever. Which is nice because sometimes one side of the family is much larger than the other. A new trend is combining or mixing the sides of each family. It is no longer the norm for the bride’s side to sit on one side and the groom’s side to seat on the other. You can invite guest to sit wherever they please. This will help them feel more comfortable and mingle with both sides of the family in a natural environment.
Pick a Romantic Location
Many brides and grooms are stepping away from the traditional church and saying
“I Do” out in nature. Despite your religious backgrounds there are many ways to celebrate your love and still be traditional. If you are looking for an outdoor environment consider the location, parking for guests and the ambience of the place. Many resorts and golf courses make beautiful backdrops to a picturesque wedding. Remember you will have the photos for the rest of your life. You will want to pick a wedding location that is comfortable, elegant and relaxing.
