Impress your guests with these wedding hire ideas

It's true that here are some things in life money just can't buy; but your perfect wedding day shouldn't be one of them. That being said, it's important to be aware of where to invest your money to ensure that your special day is everything you ever envisioned and more. So here are a few wedding hire suggestions to help you stand out from the crowd for all the right reasons.

Hire a professional wedding DJ: We may live in a world of infinite choices, with access to every song ever made just a click away, but investing in a professional DJ is a must for any serious wedding. Mates' playlists are great, but there is simply no substitute for a professional DJ controlling the music and catering to all tastes through a quality sound system.

There's lighting and then there's uplighting: Chances are you've experienced uplighting even if you're not sure what it is. Well-considered uplighting can completely transform the ambience and environment of any room and is one area you really should not skimp on. As well as enhancing the aesthetic of your event, uplighting will perfectly complement the theme of your wedding, evolving to match the changing moods of the day.

A string quartet: Too often overlooked and undervalued, string quartets have a rare and timeless quality that appeals to all ages and helps to create the perfect ambience at any and every stage of your wedding day. Equally versatile in terms of the musical styles they encompass and the mobility they afford, very few wedding hire solutions enable such a grand statement to be made in such a subtle way.

Make it personal: Whatever the theme of your wedding day, it's important to stamp your mark on the occasion by adding those personalised touches and flourishes unique to yourself and your partner. From tastefully projected personalised monograms, to flower arrangements, flash mobs, dance routines and unique vows, adding a sense of your personality to proceedings will really help to make your event stand out from the crowd and project your personal feelings for your loved ones to really see, feel and remember.

Whatever your budget, spending it in the right places and thinking outside of the box will really help to make the difference between another wedding day that quickly fades to beige and something truly unique that stands the test of time. Remember, "Weddings are important because they celebrate life and possibility".
