Amazing Ways to Preserve Your Wedding Memories
In many ways, a wedding is one of the most challenging events that entail a lot of time, preparations, and decisions. It also takes a village to set it up. We’re pretty sure you have been on one and have made a remark on things that stood out, positively or negatively.
Weddings have changed (for the better!) in the past decade. More and more people are deciding to spend extravagantly on their weddings. In Brides American Wedding Study, ninety-seven percent of engaged couples plan their wedding together, yes as a couple! Fifty-eight percent are spending cash. Guests are also given more priority through the provision of great food and an elevated dining experience. Social media is also thrown into the wedding game. Hashtags here and there. Posts and uploads everywhere.
But when the wedding day is done, what do the guests carry with them aside from the souvenirs? Of course, you do not want your wedding to just be “an event” your guests have attended; you want it to be the best they have ever been into. Memories are a form of investment. The ultimate aspiration is that your wedding should not end at the hall where it was celebrated. You may give out souvenirs and wedding favors, but they can only do so much. They, in reality, do not rekindle the events that happened. Memories are still gold.
A lot of brides, as well as wedding planners, usually overlook emphasizing features that can make their guests relive the event sometime in the future. Here are a few elements that need to be carefully considered in planning a (really) memorable wedding.
1. Unforgettable healthy plates
Guests always have to say something about the food you serve them. This is the number one thing they gossip about. We are sure most of them, just like the bride, skipped a meal to prepare for the wedding. While it is true that they want to join the celebration, the foodservice appeals to them. The best food service should provide a great comestible parallel to your guests’ diet. It should also be prepared by nothing but the best culinary experts in town. From here on, every bite is really worth remembering, and guests would not even have to bother counting carbs and just eat guiltlessly.
2. Bordeaux glass of happiness
An accompaniment to excellent food choices would be great recommendations from a well-trusted sommelier. While food is important, wine, of course, is equally crucial. In a reception, seeing a waiter pouring wine and a guest smiling in glee waiting to receive it is always the scene. We see this every other minute or so.
Likewise is when everyone starts clinking their wine glasses with silverware to signal a need for the couple to grace their audience with a kiss. This is usually followed by the applause of a cheering crowd. Not only having a glass of wine is important but also the taste. In the words of a wine savvy, “the taste speaks of its quality.”
3. Wedding as a getaway
For many attendees, a wedding is also like a getaway – a total diverts from their grind in daily life. The moment they receive your invitation with delight, they immediately check where it is going to be held and then the dates. The date and location of your wedding are two presumptive details important for them.
Once they have found out when and where the wedding is going to be, they check their schedule and their GPS (if they are not familiar with the location). They get beyond excited and their ears red when it’s a destination wedding. Destination weddings are really a dream come true for brides. Not only is this kind of wedding undeniably memorable, but it is also even more fulfilling whether to make or to throw.
5. Goody good shoes
Much like the ring and dress, wedding shoes are also given much emphasis in the modern wedding scene. Gone are the days of “something borrowed” and “it will just be underneath the dress”; therefore, brides of the new era also need to do some careful thinking here. Are the bride’s wedding shoes clean and polished? High or flat? Sparkly or plain?
The bride’s shoes tell so much about her personality and how much effort she has exerted for her wedding outfit. In the same way, the groom needs to have a pair of fresh shoes that compliments his outfit. Both their shoes should boost self-confidence, his machismo, and her marianisimo, and wow the fashion police present on the day of their wedding.
6. Lively host of the ceremony
Another element of a memorable wedding is the presence of a dynamic, talented, and energetic host. Hiring a host will be one of the best investments newlyweds-to-be will ever make for their wedding. This person shall make or break the mood of the reception.
The host is in charge of coming up with an engaging program that all of the guests can remember, if worthy! Weddings of today are made fun and enjoyable because of the host’s game ideas and how his smart transitions can be observed from one segment, say cutting of the cake, to the ceremonial drinking of the wine. The wedding host also depicts the personality of the newlyweds since he will be briefed by them on how they want the reception air to be like.
In this list are the true makings of a really memorable wedding and for sure, these will be the topic of every gossip. They say that away to a man’s heart is through his stomach. In weddings, however, the way to your guests’ heart is through a plate of gastronomic delights, a tumbler of exquisite wine, happy feet at an ideal destination, fashion sense that is pleasant to the eyes, and a host who pulls all these strings together. Not a lot, right?
Wedding memories are indeed worth reliving, not only by the husband and wife but also by the guests on that very special day. How do you plan on making your wedding more memorable? And how sure are you that it will be remembered in say five years’ time? Save this for your bride-to-be friends, the wedding planners you know, or for yourself, who could be tying the knot anytime soon. We know it; that’s why you’re here.
