Everyone has a dream wedding. Some wants a church wedding with friends and family, others a more private ceremony. More recently, the idea of an ‘Instagram wedding’ has taken off, as couples want unique ways to share their big day.
For those who follow celebrity news closely, you might know that one of the most talked about celebrity weddings in recent years was the union of actor and film producer, Robert Pattinson and his partner, French model and musician, Stella McCartney.
The couple kept the ceremony a secret for months, holding a mock wedding at Windsor Castle in May 2021. But the venue and the bride’s gown were later revealed to be authentic, as the world were treated to one of the most intimate and celebrated ceremonies of this century.
Since then, the “wedding of the year” idea has been taken up by other celebrity couples. And while some may want to keep their big day under wraps, there are ways to pull off a breathtaking celebration regardless of the size of your guest list.
Choose A Suitable Venue
As with any major event, the location is key when planning your wedding. You want to select a venue that is both unique and suitable for your budget. If you are looking for a lavish wedding, then a castle or other historical building might be the perfect choice. If you are on a tighter budget, consider an outdoorsy location, such as a vineyard or a country club lawn. If you still want something more traditional, then an old church or an art gallery are both beautiful and relatively less expensive options.
If you are lucky enough to have a designer or luxury brand for a spouse, you can choose your wedding gown with confidence. However, if you are on a tight budget, consider shopping for used or rented garments.
Incorporate Themes From Your Personal Life
If you and your spouse share a common hobby or interest, you can incorporate this into your wedding. For example, if hiking is your thing, you can have the ceremony take place in the Swiss Alps and incorporate some of the local customs such as giving away the bride in a champagne bubble, or serving wedding cake in a mountain meadow. If fishing is your passion, you can hold the wedding on a boat, and invite your friends and family to join you on a glorious summer day.
These are just some of the ideas that you can incorporate into your wedding to make it a celebration to remember. If you have a specific theme in mind, such as a vintage car collection, you can look into hosting a vintage car show on the day of your wedding.

Choose A Suitable Wedding Dress
The dress is a crucial part of any wedding. And while it’s traditional to select a long and luxurious gown for the occasion, you do not always need to go down the traditional route. After all, not every bride wants to look like a traditional bride. You can find inspiration for your dress on Pinterest.
If you love a good classic, there are plenty of luxurious options to chose from. But if you want something truly unique and bespoke, you can look into hiring a designer to help you.
Invest In Good Quality Makeup
One of the most important parts of your look is your makeup. This is especially important if you are on a tight budget. You can get high-quality makeup at a bargain price from third-party vendors.
If you want a classic look, then consider opting for a traditional white wedding. But if you want something more unique and vibrant, then opt for a non-traditional color scheme. For example, if you are looking for ideas for your honeymoon, you can select destinations in different colors, such as an olive grove in Italy, a vineyard in France and a city in China. And what better way to explore a new place than with your spouse by your side?
Take Advantage Of The Theme
If you have chosen an outdoor ceremony, you can incorporate this into your wedding by having some of the services, including the ceremony, take place in the open air. This can add a unique charm to your wedding, as the scenery around you will change depending on the weather. If it’s a cool day, have some of the guests stand up and walk down the aisle to “You Dropped A Bomb On Me” by Bomb The Music Industry.
If it’s a sunny day, have the ceremony on a beach or in a parkside location, where you and your guests can enjoy the spectacular scenery. If you are looking to create a truly memorable experience for your wedding day, consider opting for an outdoor ceremony. This is especially important if you are on a tight budget, as you can select venues that are more affordable.
Enjoy Your Wedding Day
As for the rest of your wedding day, you can select an elegant restaurant or a palatial wedding party venue. There are plenty of options to choose from, depending on your budget. And don’t forget to have some fun and memorable moments during your wedding day. These can include hiring a comedian to entertain your guests, or creating a themed photo album, where you invite your friends and family to share in your celebration.
After spending months planning your wedding, you can finally relax and enjoy your big day. And what better way to enjoy your wedding day than by looking good? Of course, being happy is important too, but let’s face it, your wedding day is supposed to be a time for you and your spouse to celebrate. So, whatever you do, make sure you enjoy yourself and look good doing it.
