Your wedding deserves to be a distinctive experience for all who attend. This article will help you create authentically unique wedding ideas that reflect you and your love for each other.
You need to discover what you like and what you despise. Find your aesthetic with moodboards and inspiration for the experience with articles that describe timelines and events. This is how you create truly unique wedding ideas!
If you are a more visual person, start with moodboards on Pinterest. Create a board for your wedding and categorize the board into different aspects of your wedding. For example: your wedding board is called Wedding Inspiration, and it is categorized into sections like The Perfect Dress, Something Blue, Floristry, Venues, Veils, Food and Drinks, Ambience, etc. Pinterest will do most of the work for you by making suggestions that blend with your style.
The next thing is to find blogs and magazines that speak to the ethereal happenings you envision. My personal favourites are The Lane, and Vogue Weddings. Taking in the weddings that resonate will bestow on you an endless reserve of unique wedding concepts for your timeline. As you read take note of unique venues, locations, attire, themes, activities, and events.
You need to roughly decide what is most important to you and start thinking about your budget. It’s important to be realistic at this point and ask yourself what can you actually afford. If you don’t know what is essential to your vision and what isn’t, there is a chance that when your planner takes over something will be lost.
Write out a list of everything you want at your wedding. Use your moodboard and research as a reference and rank the items in order of importance to you. The top five items on this list are your must have items, you may need to compromise on everything else, so choose wisely.
Now you can find a planner who fits this aesthetic you’ve created.
It is vitally important to find a planner who fits the look and feel of the wedding you want. If you don’t, there’s a strong chance they won’t be able to deliver on what you are conjuring. Using the blogs from which you mused your timeline inspiration and explore their directories and post notes for wedding planners. You can also contact the blog or magazine directly and ask for information regarding a specific wedding featured.

You now have more choice than ever before when it comes to which vendors will bring your wedding to life. Your planner will present you with a host of options, some from your city, and some from abroad. Chances are good that the perfect vendors for your wedding won’t all be based in your city. Let your planner know what to look for. You want vendors who will best deliver your vision, and not the vendors they happen to know personally.
Opening up your possibilities to international vendors is a sure way to make your wedding stunning and unique. Your city might be home to the best of the best, but if not, you may need to go the extra mile and fly them in especially. It’s always worth paying for who want, instead of choosing someone just because they are located within your city. Remember, this is your wedding! It’s not okay to compromise on the most important elements of your vision.
Lastly, make sure you pay special attention to how your wedding is remembered. Who is going to produce your wedding film and take your photographs. The work of the photographer and filmmaker is the only work that will stand the test of time. Everything else disappears when the wedding is over. This is why I recommend you budget accordingly for your film and photographs.
If you can only choose one, go with a filmmaker who can document your day authentically and candidly. A wedding film lets you relive the most important parts of your celebration.
I am currently taking wedding film bookings for 2022/2023. Inquire at firstname.lastname@example.org.
