5 tips from Scenemakers on creating an unforgettable wedding
Every couple has a style, unique to them. Before you start planning your wedding, identify what your couple style is, and create a theme around it. Guests enjoy walking into your wedding and getting a glimpse into what you, as a couple, are about. Maybe you are both artists and want to add your own personal artwork into the wedding stationary – invitations, escort cards, programs, menus….
The ceremony is the most dramatic and important part of your wedding – not to mention what your special day is all about. If your ceremony is outdoors, make sure you choose a background that will frame the ceremony with scenic beauty. Candles, flowers, and petals lining the edge of the aisle helps to draw focus to the wedding alter.
Receptions are the fun part of a wedding, as well as the most expensive. Knowing your budget before you decide on the kind of reception you want, helps to set realistic expectations. When choosing a venue, keep in mind, ten to fifteen square feet per person makes the room feel pleasant and comfortable. The kind of food and drink you decide to serve should tie in with the overall theme of your wedding.
Repeating a specific color palette, shape, and theme throughout your wedding is the base to creating your ambience. This brings flow and continuity to your event. Other elements to consider when creating ambience might be, comfortable lounge areas for easy conversation and unique décor that matches your theme -such as intricate lanterns or fun signage.
Although lighting is part of the ambience, we consider it to be a category of its own due to the impact it has. Matching your lighting to your theme makes all the difference in an unforgettable wedding. Lighting will set the tone, signifying romance with soft candle light and luminaries, liveliness with lanterns and string lights, chandeliers for sparkle and luxury. For a contemporary tone, casting lighting patterns on the dance floor and using spotlights on focal areas is paramount.

Everyone wants the perfect dress, so why not shop at the Perfect Dress? This dress shop is great and I have seen for myself why people love to go there - they are a full service Bridal Salon. This means that if you buy your dress there, they have a seamstress that will alter your gown for you and will get the same fabric with your dress to make the alterations. They guarantee you will be happy! They love brides and will do anything for them and are totally invested in the bride from start to finish. They have many dresses you can buy off the rack, but if you need to order one, China is now 16-18 weeks out. Please plan plenty of time to get your dress.
The Perfect Dress does amazing alterations. This blog shows how one dress can be changed to have many different looks... The first dress is the original dress and the alterations are below it and altered by The Perfect Dress.
