Today, bridal couples have infinite options to choose from and therefore there aren’t any excuses to make your wedding similar to others. From wedding attire to cakes and favors, everything can be unique and personal, wholly defining who you are as individuals and who you have become as couple. Every couple has unique ideas and wants the wedding day to be special and to be remembered by guests for years to come. Thus, they are paying a lot of money to see their ideas incorporated in the reception-related elements and to finally see their dreams come true.
Traditional wedding cakes can be serious budget-killers when it comes to the other parts of the wedding. Usually, the frequent practice is to create a Styrofoam cake having only one real backed tier. In this way, the costs are significantly lower and the bride and groom can cut the cake in front of their invitees. After pictures are taken and the guests admire the piece, the caterers take the cake and bring the invitees portions of a much affordable cake. If the operation of cutting the cake is something that the bride and groom can do without, there are even more options available for them. Mini cakes, fruit-filled muffins, pies and cupcakes can all be placed on tiered trays, making it possible to display something that reminds of a wedding cake and is at the same time modern, interesting and affordable. You can go against the tradition with an ice cream buffet, offering the invitees all sorts of flavors and colors to choose from.
Beach weddings and destination weddings aren’t as expensive as they appear to be when first considered and can transform your event into a unique wedding. The scenery copes with the bridal couple and the wedding décor can be as simple as they want it to be, as in the end the most important is to emphasize nature’s beauties and not to eclipse them. In case of a destination wedding, the number of invitees will be less than that of a regular wedding and the couple can continue with the honeymoon in the same location. Beach weddings allow you to organize a casual affair and render beautiful photographs. A picnic or a buffet can follow the ceremony and in this way everything is kept simple and food won’t cost a bomb. Some ideas that the bridal couple think to be great may be disappointing to the invitees. If the wedding is very casual and you opt for a barbecue for example, some of them may think of the idea as being distasteful or offensive. To avoid these situations, always indicate the events on the invites, thus informing the guests what to expect and allowing them to choose to participate or not.
The bride and groom should try to make their wedding as personal as possible because it will be an event that they will never forget. Of course, it is very important to ensure that the invitees enjoy themselves, but on second thought you cannot please everyone and in the worst case it will be just another uninspired wedding for them.
