Planning your wedding is a process that can quickly become stressful and overwhelming. It’s important not to get too caught up in the stress of it all and remember to include your personality and values in every aspect of the big day. Try incorporating these tips to make a day that’s truly memorable for you, your spouse, and your guests!

  1. Use Personalized Vows

Prewritten wedding vows aren’t able to convey how much you love your spouse and what it is about them that makes you want to marry them on this special day. Take some time before the wedding to write your own vows and ask your spouse to do the same. Your vows can be sentiments of love, promises for the future, or even include a favorite song lyric between the two of you. Anyone is capable of writing great wedding vows, you just have to write from the heart and let it flow naturally!

  1. Stray from Tradition

Weddings have so many traditions it’s hard to keep track. Sit down with your partner and go over a list of the most common traditions. Keep what you like, but don’t be afraid to cut out the things that don’t feel right for your wedding! Straying away from tradition will leave more room for personalization and create an experience that will stand out to your guests.

  1. Keep the Guest List Small

Limiting the number of guests in attendance at your wedding will make for a more enjoyable day overall. You’ll be able to use your budget to focus on every detail on the wedding and when you look back on the memories of your big day, they will be filled with your closest family and friends instead of acquaintances that are no longer a part of your life.

  1. Let Your Fur Babies Join the Big Day

Including your children in your wedding is seen as normal, so why not include your fur babies too?! Your dog can walk with you down the aisle, act as the ring bearer, or just show up to take a few pictures for the wedding album. Don’t forget to consider your pet’s behavior around large crowds before deciding how much they’ll be included in the ceremony.

  1. Find the Perfect Officiate

The person that officiates your wedding will help set the tone for the ceremony and exchanging of vows. Find someone you feel comfortable with. Using just anyone to officiate will make your wedding feel a lot more awkward and a lot less personalized. Consider asking a friend or family member to get ordained to take the personalization to the next level!
