Weddings to Remember!
Looking to make your wedding unique and stand out? Look no further. Here’s our top tips for making your wedding a day to remember.
1. Make a weekend of it
From the excitement of getting ready in the morning through to the last dance at the end of the night, your wedding day can go in a flash. Why not make the celebrations last even longer by finding a wedding venue with accommodation that can cater for you and your guests for the whole weekend? Hosting a weekend wedding means you give yourself more time to celebrate with your loved ones. It also means that guests that are travelling from further away can make the most of the time away without needing to rush back. Visit Seacliff House who offer a stunning wedding venue with accommodation.
2. Host a DIY Wedding
Want complete creative control of your wedding? Why not become your own wedding planner? It might be a lot of work and organising, but it will definitely pay off. You get to make all the decisions and create a truly unique and personal wedding experience that all your guests will remember. Once you’ve nailed all the big decisions, you can really take control of all the details, and create the perfect day that you’ve always visualised.
3. Invest in a wedding stylist
You can spend hours researching themes, creating dream boards and scrolling through Pinterest, trying to decide on the perfect style for your wedding. But where do you start? How can you turn your dreams into reality? This is where a wedding stylist comes in. A good stylist can use all your ideas, and create a beautiful and unique wedding.
4. Modernise the catering
Choosing a caterer is a personal decision. However, why not take a look at sharing plates – they’re very much in vogue compared with traditional hot meals that are usually served at weddings. If you’re looking for personal and creative approach, with locally sourced food, we would highly recommend Garnish Catering. Jo the owner consistently gets rave reviews from her wedding and other event work.
5. Host a pre and/or post wedding party
The wedding ceremony and reception can often be an intense and emotional time for everyone. That’s why holding a pre wedding party of post wedding party can be such a great idea! It gives everyone a chance to relax, have fun and enjoy each other’s company before or after the wedding. You could hold a wedding breakfast or lunch to help shake off the nerves, or maybe cocktails at lunch is more your style. Whatever you choose, pre/post wedding parties give so many opportunities to personalise and get creative, making a truly unique wedding experience.

8. Music can create your theme
Music can be a common interest for couples, and hold a lot of sentimentality. That’s why a music themed wedding can be a great way to celebrate with your loved ones. It also adds some personality and extra finishing touches, making it a day your guests will remember!
9. Consider hosting a winter wedding
Winter isn’t always the most popular choice for couples choosing a wedding date. However, choosing a less popular season for a wedding date can offer a lot of benefits for couples and their guests. Choosing to host your wedding out of season means big savings, as well as having first choice of vendors, the best wedding venue and dates. And of course, let’s not forget that winter can be the most gorgeous season for weddings. Choosing to hold a themed wedding means cosy evenings and a romantic atmosphere you won’t forget.
