It's quite possible for you to allow your wedding experience to be a unique and rewarding one for you, your wedding party, and those who attend your wedding as guests.
The first thing you should do is decide whether you want your wedding to have a theme. Ask yourselves whether there's something special that makes your relationship glow. Is there a special song? A location? Your ancestry? Hobbies? If there is something that you would like to call the theme of your wedding, put that on your invitations, cards, thank you notes, programs, and everything associated with your wedding. You, of course, can decide to make your wedding a "normal" ceremony. But it is often the ones that are personalized that make a wedding memorable.
Once you've chosen your theme, the next step is to find out how many ways you can incorporate that theme‚Äďand other things that are special to you and your soon-to-be spouse--into your wedding. Some ideas to consider include playing a special song for your parents during their part of the processional. Have a special solo sung of a song that's particular important to you and your spouse. Have the first flower the groom gave the bride as the centerpiece for your entire ceremony. Consider even having that particular flower everywhere in the church and in the reception hall. Give your guests programs that describe why this flower is important and why you're doing some of the personalized aspects of your ceremony. Consider getting your guests more involved with the ceremony by allowing them to sing along with certain tunes.
At the reception, try certain games that are characteristic to your heritage. Perhaps have a drink of the beverage that best characterizes your relationship. If you are the outgoing type, ask your disk jockey or band if you could sing a song karaoke to your spouse to surprise him.
The important thing to remember is that a specialized wedding truly makes your wedding special. It's what you'll remember about the ceremony that separates it from all other wedding ceremonies and makes the occasion one that you and your spouse will never forget.
