While singer Katy Perry and comedian Russel Brand’s wedding may have been all about “no regrets, just love” — for neighbors not in attendance, it was anything but a “teenage dream.”  The couple’s wedding at the Aman-i-Khas hotel in Rajasthan, India, last week was loud enough to draw noise complaints.  The hotel, which is located next to a sacred tiger sanctuary, has been charged with violating the district’s laws against loud music after 10 p.m.  Perry and Brand, who were free from any charges, have headed to the Maldives for their honeymoon, but managers of the hotel could face fines or jail time.

How can you make your wedding stand out?

Cupid’s Advice:

While Perry and Brand may have made headline news with their extravagant wedding, getting hotel managers fined with noise complaints isn’t the best way to make your marriage memorable.  Cupid has some tips on how to make everyone remember your special day in a positive way:

1. Personalize: Whether you’re writing your own vows or featuring a slideshow of your sweetest moments as a couple, try to include unique personal touches in both the ceremony and at the reception.

2. Make it about everyone: Most people focus on the bride, but there are two people getting married, and you’re celebrating your love with your friends and family.  Whether it’s a customized groom’s cake, or a choreographed dance number, try to incorporate your wedding party and particularly your new spouse into as many details as possible.  Little surprises will have a big effect!

3. Sparkling moment: Rather than blinging out your entire wedding, save some dough by featuring one shining moment at the ceremony and reception.  It could be releasing doves after the vows, or a particularly moving speech, but make sure it’s something unique to the two of you as a couple, and make sure you don’t overdo it.  It should be a tasteful unique addition to your big day.
