12 ways to make your wedding unique and memorable

Unique weddings in Melbourne are all the rage these days, and for good reason. A wedding that reflects your personality and style is a much more memorable event than one that follows the traditional format. If you’re looking for some ideas on how to make your wedding unique, read on. We’ve compiled a list of 12 ways to make your wedding stand out from the rest.

  1. Have a theme: A great way to make your wedding unique is to have a theme. This can be anything from a specific color scheme or style, to a particular era or even a location. Having a theme will help you narrow down your choices for décor, food and drink, music and more.


  1. Incorporate your personalities: Your wedding should be a reflection of you and your partner’s personalities. Think about ways to incorporate your interests, hobbies and favorite things into the day. This could be anything from incorporating your love of travel into the décor, to having your favorite band play at the reception.


  1. Choose an unusual setting: Instead of getting married in a traditional church or banquet hall, consider an outdoor setting or a more unique venue. This could be anything from a vineyard or garden, to a museum or historic building.


  1. Put your own spin on traditions: There are many traditional wedding elements that you can put your own spin on. For example, instead of a white wedding dress, you could choose a dress in your favorite color. Or instead of having a sit-down dinner, you could opt for a more casual buffet style meal.


  1. DIY: A great way to add a personal touch to your wedding is to DIY some of the elements. This could be anything from making your own invitations and favors, to decorating the venue yourself.


  1. Have an unconventional guest list: Instead of inviting everyone you’ve ever met in Melbourne, only invite your closest family and friends. Or you could invite people from all different walks of life, to make your wedding more diverse and interesting.


  1. Choose unique bridal party attire: Another way to make your wedding stand out is to choose bridal party attire that is a little bit different. This could be anything from non-traditional colors, to unique styles or even costumes.


  1. Have an Unforgettable First Dance: One of the most memorable moments of your wedding will be your first dance as a married couple. So make sure it is something you will both enjoy and remember forever. You could opt for a traditional waltz or tango, or go for something more unique like a salsa or hip hop routine.


  1. Personalized vows: Instead of using the traditional wedding vows, write your own personal vows to each other. This is a great way to make your wedding ceremony more intimate and special.


  1. Give back: A great way to make your wedding unique is to use it as an opportunity to give back to charity. There are many ways you can do this, such as making donations in lieu of gifts, or giving away a percentage of the proceeds from your wedding.


  1. Have a food truck: Forgo the sit-down dinner and have a selection of gourmet food trucks at your reception instead. This is sure to be a hit with your guests and will make your wedding more fun and relaxed.


  1. Hire a live band: Instead of having a DJ at your reception, hire a live band to play music throughout the night. This will add an element of excitement and will get your guests up and dancing.


No matter what your wedding style or budget is, there are plenty of ways to make it unique and memorable. The 12 tips we’ve provided should give you some ideas on how to create a wedding that is truly special and reflects you and your partner’s personality.
