Hello lovelies, we are BACK! When it comes to planning your wedding, you want to be original and memorable. You want something your guests will talk about for months after, and you want something that’s going to stick with you forever. Sure the basics are important, but are you focused on a few extra and unique wedding ideas that take your wedding from good to great?
What makes a wedding different are the little details. They add to the experience and give it that extra sparkle. Don’t you want to make sure your big day is all about you and your partner? Here are some amazing ideas which are sure to guarantee a unique wedding, you’ll be sure to remember.
Signature Wedding Scent
You’ve heard that picking a particular perfume or cologne for your wedding is a good idea (and we agree), but have you thought about using candles or diffusers to add a wedding day scent? You can immortalize your special day by creating and placing scented candles on your reception table and lighting them. Years later, if you want to be reminded of your wedding, all you have to do is light a candle with that fragrance and you’ll be taken back to one of your most cherished memories.
Online Shared Photo Album
Throughout your special day, your guests will take several pictures, but there’s an important possibility that you’ll never see them or that they’ll only be added to an Instagram story for just 24 hours. To avoid this, you can create a Google shared album and a QR code which links to an album or your wedding website and place them around the wedding decor. People can now easily upload their photos to your online gallery so that you can save them forever. You can even write the code on the menu card and thank-you notes if you’re concerned that your guests won’t remember because they’re partying too hard. When they’re not focused on dancing and partying, they can upload using this.

Weddings are huge relationship milestones. So why not take a trip down memory lane by displaying meaningful and personal pictures on a wall? This photo wall can include pictures of the bride and groom as kids, school graduation, first dates, birthdays and vacations. Photos of family and friends that have had a significant impact on your relationship and growth can also be included. This is also a great way to include family members or friends who have passed and make them a part of your day.
Skip The White Dress
This is probably the most controversial yet unique wedding idea. Although white is the traditional colour for wedding dresses, that doesn’t mean you have to wear it if you don’t want to. You can go for bold colours like black, pink, red or even pastels. Colourful wedding dresses are gradually becoming a trend and we are here for it. This might be a bit tricky, especially in Africa, but hey, it’s your day and you deserve to feel and be your best on your big day.
If you’re looking for something fun and easy to do with your wedding party, consider creating a Snapchat geofilter! Geofilters are special overlays that can be placed over photos taken at a specific location. They’re typically used to promote local businesses or events, but they can also be used as an easy way to add some extra flair to your wedding party’s social media posts—especially if you want to keep things pretty simple.
Who doesn’t love a photo booth? Your wedding should be about creating timeless memories that will remind you of how fun and amazing your big day was and a photo booth will do just that. A photo booth will appeal to everyone on your guest list, from your content creator generation to even your great-grandma. You can make this fun and interesting by adding props and a cool backdrop that will engage your guests. You will also get a copy of the fun and mostly surprising photos to look back on.
Finish with a Bang
The highlight will be a spectacular fireworks display that fills the sky. A dramatic explosive finale will leave visitors in awe, whether it features golden sparkling cascades or thunderous bursts of colour. It is a memorable moment for you and your guests and a fantastic way to round off your special day.
The key to creating an authentic and personalized wedding is to simply do things your way from the beginning to the end. While the usual wedding traditions might be sweet and easy, it might not fit your style. So instead of feeling pressured by what a wedding ‘should’ look like, draw inspiration from your relationship and personality. This will ensure that your big day feels unique, genuine and completely personal to you and your partner. There are tons of amazing wedding ideas that are different from the norm out there, so explore and fun.
