Every couple wants their wedding to be unique. There are many ways to accomplish this. First, you will need to decide on a theme, but below we are going to show you many ways to begin with a few personal touches.

Create a Vintage Wedding Table.

You can have photos of your parents and grandparents on the table. Each of you gets the information you want to share such as:

  • Names
  • Birth dates and place of birth
  • Where did they get married
  • If they are not already framed, frame them with antique (looking) frame
  • Decorate the table with a nice tablecloth and some candles.

Memory Quilt.

Supply a basket filled with squares of cloth and a marker.Make a sign asking the guests to sign their name and leave a message.

After the wedding, hire a seamstress to sew the squares together and quilt it. This is a memory quilt you will never forget.

Wedding Gowns.

Just because you are considering eloping or having an intimate desert wedding doesn’t mean you should skimp on your dress!

Select your wedding dress as soon as possible, in case it needs to be altered.

Azazie is a cool company because they have a program where your bridesmaids can put down a very small deposit and have gowns sent to their homes to try on.

This is so useful when planning a destination wedding!

Wedding & Honeymoon In One.

We understand that some of the preparations can get costly. Why not plan your honeymoon/wedding at the same time in Vegas! Check out resources like Honeyfund. This is a perfect way for your guests to gift you an experience over a “thing”.

Parting Gift for Guests.

Personalize small flower pots with your names and wedding date. Order seeds in personalized packages placing one in pot. As their plant grows, it will bring life to your wedding.

Or provide them with a touch of the desert and use a succulent or cactus!

Hire a Fun Car for the Day.

One of our favorite couples hired a cool/unique car from Turo! They explained that it was such an easy process and fun for them to have a special car for the day!

Host a Surprise Wedding.

While only one of our couples has ever done this, it was perfect and very unique. They had already been planning a family reunion, so when they knew there was already an opportunity that family would be together they jumped on it. The day of the wedding they told their family they were going to do a photo shoot at the Dry Lake Bed in Vegas and our team was there with a minister, florals and photography to take care of the nuptials. It was a wedding to remember, that’s for sure!
