Five Steps to Creating a Memorable Wedding

Congratulations! You are getting married and ready to experience the best day of your life. A wedding is the most important event in a person's life, signaling the bond of two becoming one. There are less memorable things (such as Uncle Jack's love for open bars), but you can easily squeeze those memories out by creating a memorable experience of your own. It only needs a touch here or there, but it makes such a wonderful difference to your special day. Here are five steps for creating that memorable experience:

1. Pre-wedding pampering. This is usually a bride-exclusive event, but men need apply. Men might think it is 'weird,' among other unmentionable things, but it'll really freshen up their day, prepping them up for the ceremony. Weddings are stressful, so take some time beforehand to get a nice massage, have a relaxing facial, and enjoy some cuisine before getting ready.

2. Travel in style. Instead of entering the church in your Sedan, rent out a limo instead. It's elegant, spacey enough for the entire wedding party, and you'll have time to relax as the limousine driver drives you to your destination. You might even have time to enjoy a glass of champagne or two! When you step out of the limo, and your dress' train falls elegantly as you walk away, you will truly be the star of your big day.

3. Personalize the ceremony. Instead of incorporating a simple Catholic mass, personalize it with singers, special readings, or a different spin on "Here Comes the Bride." Hire a singer or two to sing a special song during the ceremony. Have a friend read a special passage from the Bible or religious text of choice. Instead of hiring an organist, hire a guitarist instead for a relaxed, casual ceremony. When you infuse your personal touch to your ceremony, both your spouse-to-be and guests will remember it for life.

4. Delegate your responsibilities. Your wedding is indeed a large production for the woman. She is the star of the show, so it is important that she only focus on the most important event of the day - sharing it with your spouse-to-be. She should delegate. Ahead of time, make sure that all of your bridesmaids and groomsmen have their share of responsibilities, so she only has the responsibility of enjoying her big day.

5. Create a fun reception. Instead of creating a reception that simply the traditional fare, infuse your personality into the festivities. Remember, a reception gives all of your guests an opportunity to celebrate your bond with your soul mate - and give them an ability to express their excitement! You may want to hire both a traditional band and a DJ, who will both play songs that will have the crowd, young and old, on their feet. Or, you could hire an instructor to teach your guests a fun dance. When your guests have fun, they celebrate your lifelong bond - and remember your wedding forever.

Ready to walk down that aisle? By following these simple steps, you will enjoy a memorable wedding you and your guests will remember for ages. Wedded bliss does not have to be traditional - infuse your personality and your wedding day will be marked in history.
