If a wedding cake isn’t your favorite dessert, or you just want to be different, pick a wedding cake alternative. There are so many delicious options for smushing in your spouse’s face after you say “I-do.” Elegant pies, giant donuts or cute cupcakes are some popular options.

It is more popular to have whoever you want in your wedding party, regardless of gender. It is wonderful to have the support of your closest friends and family standing next to you while you marry your soulmate.

8. Have Creative Bridesmaid Dresses:

Bridesmaid dresses can be fun and creative. To have an unforgettable wedding day, let your bridesmaids pick their own dress. You pick the color and/or length and let them pick the rest. This lets each bridesmaid pick a dress they like and fits their body right. Additionally, this non-traditional trend creates beautiful, unique pictures. In bigger wedding parties, the bride can also choose a multiple shade color scheme which also yields gorgeous, blended photographs.

9. Pick a Wedding Dress that makes you the Center of Attention:

A bride’s wedding dress is the most important decision regarding wedding planning. Make sure you pick a dress you love. Remember, you will have to look at these pictures for the rest of your life so if you don’t adore the dress, don’t buy it. If you want a statement dress, look into dresses with low backs. These designs are sexy yet elegant. If you want something unique, consider a faint blush-toned dress. This trend has been popular throughout history and helps create an unforgettable wedding day.

10. Select the Perfect Tux:

There are many different dimensions and details to a wedding tuxedo. If you aren’t familiar with tuxedos, go to a tuxedo store and discover what you do and don’t like. If you want to be more casual, some men wear sacks and a nice shirt with a suit jacket. There are many options but it is important to pick a tuxedo or outfit that matches the bride.

11. Create Unexpected Moments:

Excite your guests by doing your wedding differently. A great way to create an unforgettable wedding day is by having a choreographed first dance. Your first dance can include just the happy couple or the entire bridal party. This is a great way to entertain guests and have them dancing. You can also plan a fun surprise for after the reception. Shock your guests with fireworks and a food truck. They will be hungry from all the crazy dancing.

12. Do it for the Insta Moments:

Capture all the best Instagram moments with a creative hashtag. Your hashtag should combine both spouse’s names or something that describes your relationship. When guests use your hashtag on Instagram or Twitter, all your wedding pictures will be viewable in the same place. You can always go back and look at the pictures and memories.

13. Dance to the Perfect Playlist:

Music is a very important part of any wedding reception. Once dinner is over, there is nothing left to do but dance and celebrate. Choosing wedding music can be a difficult task because it is hard to please all of your guests. Pick a playlist that makes you happy because it is your special day. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to please every guest so pick songs that you and your spouse will enjoy. When you pick the song you will dance to during your first dance, pick something that is timeless. Pick a song that you will hear in 30 years and will still make you smile.

14. Band or DJ:

One of the most important questions, do we have a band or a DJ? Bands give more of an experience to guests. Live instruments and vocals create the best party atmosphere. Make sure when choosing a wedding band, you trust the band and they can deliver the music you desire. DJ’s are another great option because they are more compact and can deliver exactly what you request. Professional DJ’s know how to start the party and keep it going.
