How to pull off a noticeable and memorable wedding at mega resort.
If you're worried that your wedding will suffer from getting lost in a sea of other weddings on a big mega resort, find ways to introduce some intimate moments and personalized elements. The key to pulling off a big wedding is to find ways to make it feel more intimate. Although it may seem like a huge challenge, you'd be surprised how easy it can be.
Don’t sweat the large stuff.
My best advice is to first be sure to put every potentially worrisome thought out of your head and just focus on what's important. That would be you, your honey, your family and your friends. Everyone that loves you came all this way to be with you on your special day. They didn't come for the food or the scenery, they came for you. Your wedding is special not just to you, but also to them. Find a way to reciprocate that love to each and every guest that came. While it's completely unrealistic and not necessary to dedicate all your attention to your guests, make an effort to make them feel special for being there, whenever given the opportunity.
Here are some practical ways to make that happen. Thank them from the heart. Whether it be a welcome speech at the start of the dinner reception, a brief chat at the guest tables, or a giant bear hug as the evening comes to a close, it really won't matter how many people you had or the size of the property you chose. The point is that it's just you and them.
Find just the right spot.
Consider the specifics of the property and scout out the spaces within that property that call your name. You'll know it when you see it. Finding a small space within a big place, is just as good as choosing a small place. Every mega resort has multiple locations to host your ceremony and reception. Choose the space that is not only the most meaningful for you, but also a space that feels warm and inviting for your guests.
Choose other elements will support that wedding vibe.
Choose food, wine, entertainment and decor to be in sync with the intimacy that you want to create.
Stations allow people to graze and experience their food choices together which is a great way to create a more harmonious experience. If you choose a plated meal instead, consider pairing food courses with specific wines and requesting that the chefs and sommeliers introduce the selections can take the experience of the guests to a whole new level. Mega resorts are fabulous at having many foods to choose from, so there is something for everyone!
When it comes to fun, there are a number of practical ways to have your wedding stand out among the rest. While it’s not reinventing the wheel, nothing beats a great band or DJ and if your guests don’t want to get off the dance floor then consider your wedding memorable. Other great choices include lovely flute playing during the ceremony, lively Flamenco Guitar during a cocktail reception and Fire Eater performance after dinner.
Placing a low and romantic centerpiece filled with candles on the tables will feel much less stuffy then a tall centerpieces laden with flowers. Adding warm ambient lighting to the area can also make a world of difference in creating more inviting setting. A mega resort wedding really can be the best of both worlds. You get the luxury and excitement along with world class choices and a gorgeous suite!
