A wedding day is a special occasion for the bride, groom, friends and family, marking the commitment of two people to each other. Months or years of planning can go into making sure that it truly is a day to remember and trying to add features or highlights to the day to make it that bit more special has become a challenge for many wedding parties.

Coming up with something personal and unique is the new vogue for the wedding day. Whether that includes arriving in extravagant vehicles, having a special menu for guests to enjoy or marrying in an unusual place; we want our day to stand out from the rest.Here are a few ideas that could help to make your wedding day a distinctive one.

If your guests have a short walk or drive to the venue where the reception will take place, hand out helium balloons that match your wedding day’s colour scheme. This allows guests to be involved and makes for great photo opportunities as people walk from the ceremony in a sea of balloons, or drive through a town with them flying off their cars.

Your guests are likely to be close friends and family and will be a special part of the big day, so treating them to little gifts is always a nice touch. Instead of the traditional favours that are given out, why not have floral arrangements made up on the guest table’s using mini vases, which they can take away with them. This not only acts as a great gift, but also gives them a special memento to remember the day.

Wedding photos are always popular and disposable cameras on tables to allow people to take their own snaps is a great way to get natural images of people having a wonderful day. What about hiring a photo booth where people can cram in together to get some special photo booth shots? This is great fun and allows guests to pick up pictures instantly and again, gives them a memento of the day.

To make your day very individual, why not consider using a ‘dry hire venue’, where you literally just rent the four walls of the room for the day. You can then fill it with as much stuff that is personal to you as you want, which will reflect on you and your partners tastes all the more. It is also a good way to keep a check on spending as you are more in control of your budget.
