1. Create a Pinterest board for inspiration.

Even if you’ve already got lots of ideas, creating a Pinterest board and seeing everything in one place is a great way to envisage how your day might come together, to discover things you never would have thought of and to confirm your priorities!  You may even be able to share your board with some suppliers, so they can understand exactly what you want to achieve.  Above is an example of some of my boards over at: www.Pinterest.com/buttonbunches

2. Add a personal touch – why not try your hand at some DIY.

A wedding provides a huge amount of opportunity for creating your very own personal touches and putting your individual stamp on the day.  Whether it’s the invitations, decorations, the cake or cake topper – or even the dress!  If you’re not confident in your craft skills, there are LOTS of independent suppliers who can create something bespoke for you and they enjoy new challenges.

3. Give your guests something to do.

Get your guests talking to each other and help to create a relaxed atmosphere.  You could provide entertainment, like a magician at the tables or a caricature artist during reception drinks. Giant board games or vintage fairground games are great if you’re outdoors.  It doesn’t have to stretch your budget – create a Mr & Mrs table quiz for guests or find your own photo booth props.

4. Include your favourite things.

The day is all about you and your partner, so think about how you can reflect this. Whether you style the whole day around your favourite film, serve your favourite chicken and chips, personalise your vows or have your dog as the ringbearer – it’s up to you.

5. Keep something secret.

Planning the day can be all you think about for months and your friends will want to know the details.  Decide what you want to share before the day and what you might keep as a surprise.  If your guests aren’t expecting to get from the church to the reception venue in a vintage bus, they’ll be even more delighted.

6. Make a statement.

Your dress doesn’t have to be white or  ivory – neither do your shoes.  Super-size your floral crown or have a bespoke vintage button bouquet created just for you.

7. Have some fun.

For a lot of us, our wedding is the biggest party we’ll ever throw, so don’t take it too seriously.  A friend of mine and her new husband came in to take their seats at the reception dinner doing a little dance routine they’d practised.  Later on they gave their guests inflatable instruments to take to the dancefloor and paused the disco for a ‘dance-off’ competition.

8. Still stuck? Ask!

Connect with others on sites and facebook pages like The Wedding Gateway, where you can interact with suppliers and ask questions to other brides to be.  Consider a Wedding Planner – after all, this may be the first wedding you’ve planned and they offer different packages.

9. Talk to your photographer

Make sure your photographer knows about any special unique element of the day that you’re keen to make sure is captured, so that it will never be forgotten.  They go to lots of weddings, so won’t know what’s important to you unless you tell them.

10. Don’t worry too much about every detail

I’m not saying you have to stage a ‘never been done before’ production – just a couple of personal touches will make your day all the more memorable (and special) for you and your guests.
