6 Ways to Have a Memorable Civil Wedding

Celebrating your marriage, whether it is a civil one or a religious one, is still a big deal. Make the most out of your civil wedding with these tips.

Dress for the occasion. Most brides dress much simpler during their civil ceremony because they’re saving their money on their dream wedding dress. But think about it: Maybe the reason on why your civil ceremony dress won’t be as spectacular is because not a lot of people will get to see it. Whatever the occasion or the number of people who’ll get to see it, what matters is that the dress that you’ll wear to your civil ceremony makes you feel as beautiful and special as you feel on your big day. Don’t forget the hair and makeup!

Take photos and videos. If you have prenup shoots with the purpose of documenting how couples look like before tying the knot, taking photos and videos of the day you get civilly married is even more important. If it’s not within your budget to get photos professionally taken, make sure you have a friend who will be able to document your big day.

Throw a fun reception. Gather up your closest friends and family for an intimate celebration. You can either choose your favorite restaurant, or hold it at home and have the food catered—just make sure that the food will be exceptionally great!

Do the traditions that you like. Not just because your reception is small or simple it means you can’t still do the usual traditions, like the throwing of the wedding bouquet, cutting the cake, or the first dance. It you’re saving these traditions up for the big wedding, it’s perfectly okay to celebrate these traditions twice.

Give DIY tokens. Since you have a small number of guests, it’s easy (and affordable!) to make your own tokens, even if you’re still a beginner when it comes to crafts. If you’re more of a cook or baker, why not give out freshly baked cookies or your own pasta sauce? Any small token is made more special when it comes from the heart.

Have a quickie honeymoon. Staycations are still very trendy now, but if you want something more memorable but low key, why not make your honeymoon as the first night you and your husband spend your first night in your new home? Set the mood with candles and a homecooked meal for a quickie honeymoon you both won’t forget.
