“It’s not diamonds and flowers that make a marriage, but the little things we tend to ignore”.
Indeed wedding day is the most important and biggest day of a person’s life, that everyone imagines to be perfect and memorable. But along this race of getting the most luxurious lavish wedding and making it a memorable event for ourselves and in the eyes of the people around us, we tend to overlook the fact that for whom are we doing all this? Our spouse! Here are some tips that you can use on your big day to make your spouse happy.
Simple and custom made invitations are a great way to make an impression on the guest. But one of the most important aspects is discussing this minor detail with your spouse to be.
Usually, the guests expect drinks to be served until the reception, surprising them by setting up a table of light beverages on the way into the ceremony or by serving them by a waiter onto their table would be a nice idea. But make sure the drinks served are not anything strong, fruit-infused iced teas (with an option of alcoholic or non-alcoholic both available) would be a decent idea.
Making your guest feel special makes your wedding day special. A warm welcome by small welcome bag of chocolates, a few snack, mini bottles of bubbly or a six-pack of a local microbrew and an added small welcome note will make your wedding totally unique and special. Bridesmaid and spouse’s best friends will appreciate the fact and some of your guests might even include this idea in their family weddings. Your spouse will definitely love the creativity and be impressed.
Allocating a room with toys and a small play area with a hired babysitter can ease parents. This room should be located near reception. When kids stay happy, parents stay happy. The room can be stocked with snacks, portable games, and a DVD player to keep young ones entertained. This will be appreciated by the mothers and they will definitely talk to your spouse about the unique creative idea of handling children, making your spouse happy as you have paid attention to such minor details.

A memorable guestbook
A special and most memorable photograph with your spouse (may be of your first date with your spouse to be), can be made into a jigsaw puzzle. Each piece of the jigsaw puzzle can be given to the guests for signing and special comments. These pieces can, later on, be arranged into the big photograph and framed. This will make your spouse happy and revive your wedding memories.
The wedding cake
Think back to the last wedding you attended. What type of cake did they serve? At most weddings, the only cake you will more likely to find would be flavored either chocolate or vanilla. Selecting for a wedding cake flavor is one of the best and the most fun part of the wedding, so why settle for safe flavors? Worried your guests will dislike? They won’t! Just because the usual flavors are safe that doesn’t mean they are toothsome. Take these ideas into consideration before opting:
1. Chocolate cake: Chocolate cake is made with Guinness stout, frosted with Irish whiskey icing, and adorned with whiskey ganache
2. Cheesecake: Incorporate chocolate or vanilla or top with any assortment of fresh fruits you desire.
3. Pumpkin spice: Buttercream or cream cheese icing tastes great with pumpkin spice
4. Lavender cake: Light flavored cakes adorned with fresh lavender, looks beautiful at an outdoor or rustic wedding.
You can even enhance your cake cutting ceremony with a live saxophone music experience.
The most highlighted and mainstream event of your wedding will be your dance with your spouse. With exotic dance floor decorated with LED lights and sound system, this has to be planned in a special manner with emphasizing on minor details, such as confetti. If you opt for a slow romantic song, then have fresh flower petals dropping from the ceilings instead of traditional confetti. This will add a unique romantic touch and will embed this moment in the bottom of the left ventricle of your spouse making it the most memorable and romantic moment of the wedding.
Little things make weddings special
Covering all the aspects of making a special wedding is beyond the scope of this article, but highlighting some of the minor details will surely make a difference and make your spouse’s day memorable. In the end, one thing that most people choose to ignore is the fact that these worldly details have an impact but not to an extent that would be marked more if a person chooses to consult his/her spouse during this hectic event and make them feel that they love them and they care for them and they would like their opinion on every small possible detail. A mere sentence stating “I love you” leaves more impact than arranging all the money spent on luxury. The smallest things done in the midst of the extravagant event may seem to be trivial and worthless to others, but can give your loved one a lifetime ecstatic memory.
