It’s important to take time with your future spouse to talk about what is important to each of you and how to make your wedding unforgettable. You both have ideas and expectations for what your wedding will look like. Ask questions like, “What’s most important to you?” or “How do you envision the ceremony going?”Keep an open mind as you discuss your unique history and expectations.

It’s possible you have different cultural or religious traditions. Take some time to talk about what you love about your own traditions and hear what your fiancé is excited about also. Brainstorm some ways that you can combine your traditions together to make something impactful and creative.

Create a Theme

Spend some time brainstorming what aspects of your relationship you’d like to highlight in your wedding. This can be a fun bonding activity! Pour a glass of wine, cuddle up, and reflect on what you love about each other. If you’re an adventurous couple who loves hiking with your golden retriever, consider having your wedding outdoors and nominate the dog be your ring bearer. If you and your partner are artists with a mission to change the world, make a collaborative painting to auction off at the reception... proceeds go to your favorite charity. The most important thing is that you identify what you two value most and find a way to incorporate those values into your special day.
