Introduction: What is a Wedding?
A wedding is a ceremony where two people make promises to one another. This typically happens in front of their friends and family, and sometimes even ordained individuals such as priests or rabbis. A wedding has three parts: the service where the vows are made, a reception to celebrate in style, and a honeymoon for the newlyweds. The service is generally conducted by a minister or priest, and can be religious or nonreligious. The reception is typically a dinner and often consists of the bride and groom, their friends and families, as well as other guests. Honeymoons consist of spending time together in an intimate romance which may include nights at their own home or traveling to another destination.
Many people have their wedding in a church or a house of worship, but the current trend is for couples to have them at resorts, restaurants, and other public venues. This trend is most common in larger cities where it is more difficult to find rooms in a house of worship on the day that would work best. Despite this trend away from having weddings inside houses of worship, they are still very popular and are considered “traditional.” In fact, many churches will only marry couples if they plan on having their ceremony there.
What are some common wedding themes?
People are very creative when planning their weddings, and the creative types tend to come up with interesting ideas that will add uniqueness and splendor to the event. Themes range from standard such as “traditional” and “modern,” but they can also be more humorous. An example of a humorous theme is lemonade wedding which can involve fairytale-like characters such as a prince or princess, or even a circus act. Another theme can be the time of year. The fall or winter season can give a beautiful setting for an outdoor affair. The season has to be thought of carefully because the weather can be chilly. There may also be issues regarding finding some materials.
Spouses who have a creative streak and want their wedding to stand out can try a theme to match their personalities and beliefs. The fun of planning can start early, even if the ceremony is still years away, by creating a list of possible ideas for consideration later on. Some couples are inspired by movies, science fiction or fairy tales to create themes that reflect their creativity. Others may choose to pursue a theme that reflects their love of certain animals or food. Some popular wedding themes are:
The Pop culture theme: If the new couple likes music, movies, or TV shows they can decide to base their wedding on one of those aspects. The possibilities are endless (and perhaps expensive if they decide to hire actors or singers).
Top 10 things you should try at least once on your wedding day
Ask the bride or groom to wear something other than their wedding dress or tuxedo. You may be surprised to see them in something unusual. For example, a groom might wear an evening gown or a colorful kilt, and the bride will probably have on something that is not too revealing. Take pictures at a place where you have fond memories of your relationship together. For example, if you attended summer camp together, it would be appropriate to take pictures there. If you two were in college together and dated for three years, take pictures at the college you both attended, or even at a place where you first met. Take photos of the couple as a couple and not as individuals. Have something written on their back, such as their future children’s names. This is a “future” inclusion that will give the picture a sentimental effect. Have special props for moments in the day such as rings on fingers or ties being tied. If you’re not allowed to take pictures of the rings as a couple, take them separately. The rings can be either on their hand or held between the couple’s hands. If you have a bridal party, have each member dress in a color that coordinates with the wedding, such as white for the bride’s side and blue for the groom’s side.

Tips for organizing your big day and getting help from friends and family members
Before you get married, make sure to have tons of fun and enjoy yourself. Do activities you enjoyed when you were single such as going to a concert or movie with your friends. Go on road trips and try new foods that you love. This can help make sure there is not a stale feeling the day before the wedding. The rehearsal dinner should be done affordably since it is for the entire family and not really for guests. Have a big feast for everybody and keep everything simple so that everybody can relax after attending a formal wedding ceremony. Before the wedding, make sure you have enough time to get everything accomplished. Think about the bigger details such as choosing rings, flowers and decorations (favors). Your wedding planner should be kept in mind. Choosing a venue is important and picking a place that is different and unique can be a great way to stand out among the crowd. Many people will choose to have their ceremony at a place they liked while they were growing up or at a place where they had their first kiss. Make sure that your wedding is unique and that there are things about it that nobody else will have. This will make your wedding fun and creative.[ARTICLE END]

That is why its a good idea to select music that you really love and that reflects your personality.
