4) Share favorite photos.
You can do this in a collage of photos of the two of you growing up, in your signature guest book, or displayed on your gift table. Displaying your parents’ or grandparents’ wedding photos is an elegant and romantic way to share your history.
5) Make memories with music.
Play your favorite songs and artists during your ceremony and reception, or the songs that your family and friends love. Some fun places to use your favorite tunes include your walk down the aisle, your introduction music, and your parent dances.
6) Tell your love story.
Write a short love letter to each other before the wedding and DO NOT share it with each other. Then on the wedding day, have your officiant, DJ or band leader read the letters aloud.
The response to this is always amazing. Your words can be romantic, funny, or quirky, whatever fits your personalities. Your guests will feel connected, which primes them for an unforgettable experience.
7) Invite your guests to perform.
If you have musicians or dancers in the family, ask them to perform at your ceremony or reception. (Just make sure they will still enjoy themselves!)
You don't HAVE to use all or any of these things. But I do encourage you to express your personalities in a way that fits who you are because it will engage and involve your guests like nothing else.
Here's to an unforgettable wedding!
