10 Tips to Plan a Memorable Wedding

Organising a wedding can be time-consuming and stressful. There are many things you need to keep in mind in order to have your wedding ceremony run as smoothly as possible and without any issues. But keep in mind that your wedding is a special day for you and your partner and that what matters the most is for you and your guests to have a good time.

These ten tips will make sure you organise the most memorable wedding that your friends and family will talk about for years to come.

Go for a personalised program

When speaking about the wedding ceremony, one of the first things that need to be taken care of is definitely a wedding program. It might seem like just a bit of stationery, but if you find a way to personalise it and make it unique, it can really make a difference. 

This way you’re providing your guests with interesting details about you and your partner, some useful information about the ceremony’s proceedings such as the officiant’s opening remarks, the exchange of vows, and so on. With a personalised wedding program, you will for sure capture their attention and inform them about the key details of your wedding day.

Rent a luxurious limousine

If you’re looking for an additional way to spice up your wedding, there are several options you might find very interesting and chic. One of them is to rent a luxurious car you can arrive with, or later leave your wedding with, once it’s over.

It can be any car of your personal preference: a coupe, a sports car, or even a luxurious limousine. Whatever you end up choosing, some of the wedding car hire packages will make sure you arrive in style at your wedding.

Give out welcome bags

No matter where your wedding ceremony is taking place, some people will have to travel to be a part of your special day. You can show your appreciation by giving them a warm welcome. You can give them welcome bags in case they are staying at the hotel.

 A bag filled with few snacks, a bottle of water and a list of local stops might come in handy. And if you want to go the extra mile, you can throw in a bottle of wine, some local treats or a city guide.

Greet each guest

It does sound kind of obvious, but making sure that you personally greet each and every guest at your wedding is very important, because it creates a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

 Also, try to spend at least a little bit of time with each guest during the wedding. You can chat with some friends over cocktails, visit a few people’s tables during dinner, or dance with your guests on the dance floor.

Splurge on the open bar

Open bars can be pricey, but there are ways for you to provide great drinks at your wedding while still keeping it within the limits of your budget. For example, you can consider offering just beer and wine, or a few cocktail options. 

Another idea is to create a signature cocktail. Having one or two of your own customised drinks will save you a lot of money and will make your reception feel very personal and unique.

Design a lounge area

Even though your wedding includes some good music and a dance floor, not everyone will be up for dancing all night. That’s why adding a nice and cosy seating area can be a lovely touch.

Also, make sure that your guests are comfortable during the evening. This might include offering wraps, parasols, or flips-flops if one might need them.

Ask for song requests

If you want to have all of your guests having fun on the dance floor, let them know that they’re allowed to ask for the music they like. Your DJ can make an announcement and tell your friends that they’ll happily be accepting their song requests throughout the evening. Your guests will definitely appreciate the fact that you’re thinking of them in such a manner.

Have phone charging stations

There are other possible necessities you might have to keep in mind when organising your wedding. One of them is having phone charging stations at several spots around the place. It can be very useful, especially for those guests who travelled to get to the wedding. 

People will be thankful you considered their personal needs and will be able to use their phones to take awesome pictures throughout the wedding ceremony.

Play wedding games

Having fun with your friends on the dance floor might be the highlight of the evening. However, if you want to avoid having a monotonous wedding, try including some other activities as well. For instance, playing interactive games with your friends and family will have you laughing like crazy. 

It also might serve you like a break from dancing. Games like Jenga, bocce ball or even some board games will have your friends interacting while also getting to know each other.

Have a photo booth

Lastly, adding a photo booth at your wedding can be a complete bingo. Not only is it a great activity for your guests, but it is also a way of making sure that some of the most memorable moments stay with you after your wedding day. 


All things considered, planning a wedding might include a lot of detail planning, organising, decision-making and taking care of food and drinks while trying to fit all that into your budget. But above all, it’s about having an amazing party with your close friends and family in celebration of your partner’s and your future life together. It is about making new memories with the people you love the most.
