Bay Area Wedding Planners Discuss 10 Sweet Things to Do on the Big Day
Whether you’re the bride or the groom, this is the time to show your fiancé(e) how much you value the relationship. Regardless of how you choose to show your affection, you need to be at the top of your game to make every single moment memorable. Here are 10 ways to blow them away on the wedding day!
1. A handwritten letter from your heart
You can give your best man, flower girl, or ring bearer a heartfelt note to take to your partner. Ensure that you’ve made it clear to him or her just how much you value your relationship. In the letter, let him or her know that you’re excited about spending forever together, and that you appreciate that he or she came into your life.
2. Engrave your fiancé’s band or a ring with a sweet message
You can engrave a memorable or thoughtful quote that will put a smile on his face. You can get some ideas from the internet and have an artistic person engrave it in style. If you are the groom, you can find some short, sweet sentence, phrase or quote and have an artist engrave it perfectly on her ring (if it’s wide enough to have engraved).
3. Plan some alone time after the vows
As mentioned earlier, your wedding day is a once in a lifetime event, so you probably want to maximize the fun (who doesn’t?!). For example, if your wedding is taking place near a historic site or body of water, you can organize a short, but romantic tour. For example, surprise him or her with a horse ride after the vows. If your wedding is taking place near the ocean or river, you can surprise her with a romantic boat ride.
4. Give him the foods he craves for
Believe it or not, men enjoy eating their favorite foods all the time, and your wedding is not an exception. For instance, if he is fond of pizza, you might want to send one to him and his groomsmen while they’re getting ready for the ceremony.
5. Unique gift
By the time you’re tying the knot, you should at least have a clue of a gift your fiancee always dreamed of. But this doesn’t mean that he or she can’t buy it. Maybe, he or she is just holding off on getting it. This is an opportunity to remind him or her that you care. Find him or her a gift that he or she has been wanting for some time.
6. Breakfast in bed the next morning
How does it feel waking up together in bed as a wife and a husband for the first time? Believe it or not, guys love this. So, do away with everything that might make you busy the day after your wedding, and spend more time in bed together. If you’re staying at a hotel on your wedding night, ask room service to deliver a breakfast feast the next morning. You can even take it a step further and give them a sweet note, or token of your affection, that can be delivered with your breakfast.
Dancing together at the wedding is one of the most romantic events of the evening. Sadly, it might not be one of your hidden talents. Tame your anxiety about dancing by taking secretive lessons leading up to the big day. Then, when the time comes, unleash your killer moves on the dance floor. Let the wedding planner or MC (Master of Ceremonies) know about this early enough to plan it into the schedule. Believe, me, if she’s never seen you dance before (or knows you don’t like dancing) she’ll love you even more. You can also request the wedding dj to organize her favorite songs into your surprise.
8. Show that you appreciate his or her culture
Some weddings endure conflicts between opposing cultures of the guests and family members. When you’re getting married, your fiancé(e) needs to know that you appreciate their culture. Try conveying this by dressing the same way that their culture dresses traditionally. The in-laws will be just as thrilled when they see you during the wedding.
9. An artistic portrait session
Portrait sessions should be incorporated in your wedding day plans since they’re the best way to re-live the day in years to come. You need great photos that you’ll want to take a look at every time either of you think about the wedding day. Some couples admit that they don’t enjoy looking at their wedding photos because they didn’t choose quality wedding photographers, or dislike the way their photos turned out. Don’t let this happen to you!
10. Keep the honeymoon destination under wraps
Nothing completes a wedding like a honeymoon, but most couples plan this vacation together and leave no room for surprises. If you really want to wow her, decide on a geographic area together, then keep the rest of the details (location, hotel, excursions) a surprise. Remember to give her a couple of clues so that she pack accordingly.
