Brides and grooms have so many options for getting married these days. Gone are the times of a small ceremony in a local church followed by a wedding breakfast for family and friends. Now, it's not uncommon for weddings to be elaborate ceremonies featuring food, music and dancing for hundreds of guests. But how to make sure your wedding reflects your relationship and creates memories you'll never forget?
More and more people are choosing theme weddings as a unique way to make their special day stand out from the crowd. If you think this might be right for you, there are plenty of themes you can choose to create a fun and memorable day. Colours are a popular theme, and an easy way for guests to get into the spirit of things. You can pick a couple of your favourite colours, or go for a more outlandish theme such as rainbow or peacock colours.
Want something down-to-earth yet still special and exciting? Why not go for a festival-themed wedding? All you'll need is a field and some tents, and your guests can get into the spirit of things by combining their glad-rags with wellies for the occasion. Phone around or ask friends for some bands and DJs to play at the occasion to complete the festival feel.
At the other end of the spectrum, a full fairytale wedding is many brides' dream. There are hundreds of romantic castles around the UK that can be hired for your wedding ceremony, and you can complete the effect by hiring a beautiful vintage wedding car to whisk you to the venue in style. Or how about a wedding on the beach? You don't need to fly away to a foreign country to enjoy a laid-back seaside wedding – there are plenty of places in Devon and Cornwall that boast golden sands, clear blue waters and a mild climate for that tropical feel.
However you decide to celebrate your special day, putting your own individual touch on the proceedings will ensure you enjoy a day you'll never forget.
