Ever heard the sayings ‘the little details make the big picture’ or ‘the difference between something good and something great is the attention to detail?’ Well, this is so true when it comes to weddings and events and certainly something we, at Love Lydia Weddings and Events, pride ourselves on doing exceptionally well! Small details that have been carefully thought out, whether that be in the design of the floral decorations at a wedding ceremony or using personalised stationery on the day, can help create an extra special element to your wedding, making it unique and one that stands out from the rest!
Here we share a few ideas of these ‘extra’ details you may wish to consider incorporating into your wedding theme or unique celebration for a more personable and exclusive experience:
Personalised Menu cards/tags/items
This is something that can be so simple to organise, and the variations are endless! Whether you decide to have number/name cards for tables, unique favours or other decorative table setting features, you can personalise these items for your guests, helping them to feel valued and thought of in the planning process.
Cameras/Guest Book feature
Although every one loves to and cannot wait to receive the professional images of the day, Polaroid cameras around the reception room with a designated guest book for prints are a fun and interactive way for your guests to engage with others around their table, whilst also making a more memorable experience for you by having a full guest book of images and messages at the end of the night!
Table Centre Pieces
Having carefully thought out your table designs, you can incorporate unique and characteristic centre pieces that complement your theme and personality of the wedding style and create that ‘wow’ factor leaving your guests speechless!
Lighting and Candles
If you are one for romance, then why not have small detaila such as tea lights and fairy lights throughout your venue space. Having small flickering candles or colour lights in outdoor spaces not only look pretty but can help with more impact lighting, create ambiance, and add to a romance setting.
Scented candles, large church one of varying heights and smaller lantern ones, will further enhance and personalise the reception and make it forever memorable to your guests. We can arrange for you to choose your favourite scent or even have one created to make the day even more unique.
Uplighting for a more regal look in the ballroom or reception space will add an even more luxurious atmosphere and create a romantic and dreamy atmosphere.
Escort tables in the lobby or cocktail reception areas add a very personal touch and can set the mood for what awaits behind closed doors. These can be dressed majestically with beautiful florals and scented candles and exquisite stationery name cards arranged in meticulous rows; dispersed with signature themed items, or simply, petals, or even hanging these from beautiful silk ribbons on an ornate and beautiful centre-piece.
Why not have your personal mixologist create a signature cocktail – one for the bride and one for the groom – to further remind your guests of your individuality and special style.
These are just a few inspirational ideas to get you thinking about all the possibilities and magical moments you can create by including small, yet effective details throughout your wedding day. Why not go that extra mile and make it even more special for you and your guests?!
