We know how important your big day is and we also know that everybody wants their wedding to be unique. So when it comes to pulling off the celebrations, here are some of our top tips for adding a personalised touch to make your perfect, memorable coastal wedding.
Don’t have an ordinary guest book
Anyone that gets to wander along the coast frequently knows that there’s a whole host of beachy pebbles that come in all shapes and sizes. Why not try taking some of your favourites and placing them on tables with metallic pens for your guests to write on, instead of a traditional guest book. That way you can display them somewhere in your house and enjoy memories of your wedding day, as well as having a token from a nice romantic pebble picking walk for two along the shore. Plus, carefully placed amongst flowers, candles or lights, your guest book stones can act as your coastal table centrepieces.
Spoil your guests, whatever the weather
When you’re planning a wedding somewhere as spectacular as Cornwall, you’re always hoping that the weather will be beautiful for everyone to enjoy. Even if it rains, when you’re getting married somewhere surrounded by beaches and fantastic views, it seems a shame for your guests to miss out. Why not arrange to have some pairs of wellies and umbrellas available to your guests in case they want to get some fresh air and take in the stunning scenery. Additionally, you can put some disposable cameras on the tables and encourage guests to snap some shots while out enjoying the views, giving you some spontaneous photos of guests amid a stunning backdrop.
Make your own wedding rings
Cornwall prides itself on its arts and craft culture which has become more established as the years go on. Whether you live in Cornwall or you’re making the trip to get married here, you can make your wedding more memorable by making your own wedding rings. It’s not only likely to be a talking point amongst guests on the day, but it adds a very personal touch to your marriage knowing you’re wearing a one of a kind piece designed and made by your partner. There’s a choice of places that offer you the opportunity to make your own wedding rings in Cornwall, so why not have a fun experience together ahead of the big day to release any stress from months of wedding planning.
