It's hardly surprising that most of us want the best possible wedding. After all, your wedding is that once in a lifetime moment where you and the person that you love get to stand up in front of everyone in your lives and promise yourself to each other for the rest of your lives. However, when people are trying to create the best possible wedding day, they have a habit of only focusing on the big stuff -- things like the venue, the dress, the food. Of course, all of those things are incredibly important and forgetting about even one of them has the potential to completely ruin the day. That being said, if you really want to elevate your wedding from good to incredible, the only way to do that is to think as carefully as possible about the little details that might fly under the radar for a lot of people. Here are a few of the little details that can make your wedding truly perfect.

The Theme
A lot of people assume that their wedding just doesn't need a theme. And sure, not everyone is going to want a Star Wars or Doctor Who themed wedding. However, just because you're trying to keep your wedding simple and classy, it doesn't mean that it couldn't benefit from some kind of theme. The best wedding themes are ones that, rather than being incredibly obvious, simply act as the glue that holds everything together. Say you want something like a 1920s theme for your wedding. That way you'll have a much better idea of everything from the colors and decorations, to the music and the kinds of clothes that everyone should be wearing on the day. You don't even need to tell your guests what the theme is, but as long as you've got it in the back of your mind while you're planning everything, you're going to be able to create the most cohesive and well thought out wedding possible.

Gifts
Most people are attending your wedding for no reason other than the fact that they're excited to see you and your partner promise yourself to each other forever. So why not repay that kindness with a little treat for them? Wedding favors for the guests are a great way to keep people talking about your special day for years to come. One of the best ways to elevate little gifts for your guests is to come up with something totally unique and personal to your wedding day. Why not try putting something like Sandsational Sparkle sand ceremony sets with lids on the tables where your guests are going to be sitting. That way not only will they have something to take away with them but they will also make great conversation pieces that guests can enjoy and appreciate on the day. Sure, you may not want to end up spending huge amounts of money on gifts for your guests, but small gestures to let them know how much you appreciate their presence really can go a long way.

Place Settings
The place settings for a wedding are one of those things that a lot of people only really think about in purely functional terms. After all, they're not exactly the most exciting or interesting things in the world. However, you need to think about it from your guests' perspective. The table settings are often the first things that they see when they sit down at their assigned table, so you want to make the best possible impression don't you? Things like handmade place settings can add a huge amount of charm to any wedding that will really impact the way your guests feel. You don't want to go overboard to the point where they're distracting, but paying a bit more attention to your place settings can turn them into a truly elevating factor in your special day.

Music
Music is one of those things that plays a much bigger part in any wedding day than a lot of people realize. Sure, it's not the kind of thing that's going to make or break the entire day, but it can often have a huge impact on how a wedding feels more than anything. The best thing to do is to think about the kind of music that represents you and your partner the best. What are your tastes? What fits with the theme? What conveys the kinds of feelings you want in your wedding? If you don't think about these kinds of questions, then the music in your wedding is going to end up being much more generic and uninteresting than you would like. Remember, the music doesn't end just because you've had your first dance.

Color Scheme
One of the biggest issues that a lot of weddings have is that they simply don't have any kind of cohesive style about them. This often leads them to being incredibly generic and plain looking. One of the very best ways to avoid this is to have some kind of unifying color scheme in place. That way you've got something that you can refer back to every time you're trying to figure out what the best ideas for decorations are. Figuring out the right color scheme is going to depend on a lot of different factors. Everything from your personal taste to the venue to the time of year is going to have a pretty major impact on the kind of color scheme that you end up going with.

You might think that a lot of these things are so simple and small that no one is really going to notice them. And you actually have a point. A lot of the time, these kinds of things are going to go unnoticed by a lot of people, on a conscious level at least. It's a good idea to think of these things as the eyebrows of your wedding. After all, when you look at a person's face, you probably don't spend much time paying close attention to their eyebrows do you? However, if someone walked up to you and they didn't have any eyebrows, you'd sure as heck notice right away! These little details might go unremarked upon buy your guests, but they are almost certain to notice if they're missing.
