Your dream wedding is not just your big day. This day gathers all the loved ones, family members, friends and close acquaintances who travel for miles to be present on your special day. While some take a leave from their desk job, others shift chores to future to adjust the dates, some start shopping with vigor; others book tickets in advance to be able to make it for the wedding.
While the guests make their minds to attend the destination wedding, you will have to take few nuances in consideration as to how to provide them a personalized vibe that stays in their hearts forever. A lot of couples get married but what makes your wedding special has to be created in innovative ways that speak volume about the efforts that you have made for all those who are attending your D-Day.
Let us suggest you creative, budget-friendly ideas that you can incorporate at your destination wedding in India for everyone to remember your wedding for a long time.
This is the era of social media where even your 60 year old uncle posts videos and photos of travel and more. Everybody is on the social media and why don’t you take your wedding a step closer to create a unique hashtag of your own. This could be a mix of the names of the bride and groom, word that defines your union, or a simple hashtag. This hashtag can be used as an art décor at the venue or be used by the guests whenever they post a photo of the wedding on any social media platform. You can also get personalized seals with the hashtags that can be stamped on the guests’ wrists upon arrival.
Explain the Rituals
A lot of friends and guests belong to different religions and castes that may not follow the rituals or traditions that are being followed in your wedding. Explaining the relevance of the pheras, various rituals that are being conducted during the wedding and other traditions can be aesthetically explained in small cards or leaflets and handed over to the guests at the venue. This will be an amazing gesture for a cultural exchange.
Guests travel from across the country to be present on your special day. To relive from the travel stress, you can create small boxes of goodies or gift hampers for the guests kept in their hotel rooms. These boxes may contain itinerary of the entire ceremony, toiletries, welcome cards, eatable items, dry fruits or other paraphernalia that can be used by the guests upon arrival.
Take Away Photos
Yes! This is the most innovative addition to make your dream wedding personalized and memorable for the guests. Despite the presence of event photographers, you can hire special team of professionals with proper equipment and printing device who can click the guests and handover the prints on the spot. A small area can be set up with props for beautiful and unique frames wherein the guests can pose in their best looking smiles and carry a take away photo as a memory. Each print can have names of the bride and groom inscribed in them that will serve the purpose.
To make your destination wedding in India more memorable for the guests, you can add creatively baked cookies and candies with your initials or family names that can be handed over to the guests. Other favors such as chocolates, cupcakes, food boxes etc. can be branded as per your choice!
Pre-Wedding Photos in Décor
The guests want to know your love story too! Almost all the couples opt for a trendy and personalized photo shoot before the wedding which the guests can enjoy looking at the venue. Large frames, photographs or canvas can be placed in the venue with these photos with snippets of story behind each. Also, the pre-wedding video can also be played on a large screen present amidst the guests for them to actually be a part of your beautiful journey.
Select Dining Seating
For a small wedding, the guests are assigned specific tables so that they can comfortably sit while eating and not have to worry about finding their people at the large venue. You can place adult members together on one table and young kids on the other to suit the seating arrangements. Place name cards on the tables for the guests to find their assigned comfortable seats.
Wedding is a celebration of love between two people. And what better way to express that love through words, poetry and stories? The décor designer can place your favorite poem, words for each other or ballad at the venue. A little space in the arena can have a large standing frame where guests can scribble their words, poetry, lines from a favorite author or simply add good wishes to the newly wedded couple that will be left imprinted in your hearts as well.
There are various ways where you can add that personal touch to your wedding for everyone present to carry a lot of memories with them.
