A lot of brides choose to focus on the big things – venue, caterer, and which band to pick. However, while these things are important, there are other things that need just as much time and thought, and those are the little details.

Don’t underestimate the importance of getting inspired
The chances are that you’ve spent hours Googling various wedding dress designs and looking for ideas for caterers. However, you most probably haven’t spent all that long thinking about the smaller details. To give your wedding day the little touches that it needs, it’s important to get inspired.

These will not only give you ideas that you would never have thought of by yourself, but they’re also a lot of fun. Find out where the nearest wedding event to you is, get the bridal party together, and head off for a day of inspiration.
Get the tables right
When it comes to planning how you will decorate the tables, it’s easy to make the mistake of thinking that a white tablecloth and some flowers will do. However, if you want to make your tables interesting and unique, you need to take the time to get creative. It’s not just a case of using table numbers to distinguish between the different tables; there are various options to consider. How about naming each table after a place, a film character, or something else that’s personal to you? Whether you’re mad about Star Wars or love to travel, there are lots of ways you can incorporate this into your reception tables.
Be creative with the entertainment

To make your big day extra special, you need to take the time to get a little more creative with your entertainment. Yes, music is a must, but there are also other options for keeping your guests entertained. For example, photobooths, like those from Booth Boy, are the new in-thing for wedding entertainment. They’re a fun and unique way to capture memories of your wedding day, and best of all, are a whole lot of fun and a great way to keep everyone entertained. The more creative you can get with your entertainment, the better.
