4 Ways to Make Your Wedding Unique

While jotting down wedding to-do lists, you might use memories from friends’ weddings to figure out how to plan a wedding. Thinking back on those happy celebrations, you try to recall which friend had the best flowers, bridesmaid dresses, and decorations. 

Suddenly, you can’t remember whose wedding had what because the memories run together. Each one looked so similar. Everyone chose the most popular wedding trends of the time. You begin to worry that yours will be just another basic wedding.

Don’t worry. There are simple steps to make your wedding stand out. Try these 4 ways to make your wedding unique.

1. Choose Contrasting Colors

To make guests really remember your wedding, go against the popular color trends. Wedding Forward predicts that these will be the most popular colors of 2018:

·     White + Green

·     Neutral Grays

·     Shades of Marsala 

·     Tender Blush + Peach

Although these are beautiful color combos, they might be overdone this wedding season. Thankfully, The Knot offers advice about which gorgeous color selections can make your big day unique. Try these colors:

·     Magenta + Poppy + Yellow

·     Tangerine + Orange + Yellow

·     Navy + Yellow + Blue

2. Add an Unusual Backdrop

A captivating backdrop can set the scene for when you become husband and wife. It may not have crossed your mind or made its way to your to-do list yet, but it can be the perfect element to frame your big moment.

Find shapes and styles that complement your theme and have your wedding decorator arrange them in the background. Or, you can make the backdrop a fun DIY project to complete with your closest friends.

3. Try a Theme

A beautiful backdrop can also be a great way to highlight your wedding's theme. When you think of a themed wedding, you might picture cheesy costumes and goofy guests. But, if you put your own romantic twist onto your favorite books or movies, you can create a magical moment that everyone will remember.

In this wedding, the bride and groom took their love of The Lord of the Rings and created a fairy wonderland. The bridesmaids carried twinkling lanterns and the ring bearer donned an ornate "Lord of the Rings" sign. But perhaps their signature, hand-made backdrop is what successfully united their theme with the ceremony and had all of the guests in awe.
