All the preparations and planning depend on the choice of venue. The couple needs to decide where they want to get married, as the thematic setup can be determined based on it. Some people prefer to marry in their hometown or birthplace. In contrast, some choose to set up their marriage ceremony in their worship place so that post-ritual festivities celebrated in another venue setup.

Garden and outdoor wedding venues have become increasingly popular in recent years, offering couples an opportunity to create a truly beautiful arrangement for their special day. From floral arches to string lights and thematic table centerpieces, there are numerous decorating options available for these types of venues that make the ceremony even more memorable. For those going with a white tent wedding theme, making use of custom outdoor inflatables will ease the process of creating the overall atmosphere. For example, an additional white inflatable arch can add flair and directionality to point guests to where the venue is, or consider a white bouncy house as entertainment that is also perfectly tailored to the color scheme of the event. Garden and outdoor weddings offer so much potential to design an unforgettable celebration, making it quite easy to understand why these venues are becoming more highly sought after. Based on such choices, relevant themes can be finalized and set up for functions like the dress code, cuisine, etc.
2. MAKE YOUR EVENT PICTURESQUE
A lovely picture can speak more than 100 words. You can spice up the celebrations with beautiful arrangements to create perfect backgrounds for photography. Similarly, you can use childhood memories or cheeky moments of the couple as photos and videos as collage to be run before the rituals or in cocktail party post-wedding.
Additionally, you can set up a photo booth with crazy props for the guests to pose, and provide them the photo printed instantly. Also, there are many trendy bridal photo-shoot ideas out there to replicated like “The First Look.” It means before the hustle and bustles of wedding function and rituals, the bride and groom spent five minutes alone together, and the photographers capture such moments.
3. GRATITUDE TO THE GUESTS INVITED
Your guests are the ones who bring colors to your celebrations. They also take out time, spend money on travel, helping you out in preparations, etc. How about expressing your gratitude with some goodies or pick-me-ups? It doesn’t necessarily have to be expensive. You can place some sweet delights of locally produced chocolates in their rooms, or simply book an appointment of the spa to provide some solace and relaxation. It can be your way to say thank you to them to add value to your lives.
4. CUSTOM INVITATIONS, LOGOS, AND HASHTAGS
You can design a customized logo that involves fun characters of the bride and groom. These can replicate on the invitation cards along with one dedicated hashtag. This hashtag can use to post all updates on Instagram from day one of the preparations. In this way, all of the media can be curated in one place, too, which can be accessed later on to recall such memories.

Another interesting attempt to make your special day memorable is to arrange a vintage car for the couple’s departure from the venue. But before the departure, a small closing speech segment can provide an emotional and touchy end to such a festival. All the family members and close friends can say some heart-to-heart words for the bride and groom, and bid farewell to them with love and gratitude.
