Your wedding day is a special moment that you will cherish forever. While the tradition of the day can be beautiful, adding your own personal touch can make it even more memorable. Here are seven easy ways to add personal touches to your wedding:
Location, location, location
Choose a unique location that has special meaning to the two of you together. It could be the place where you had your first date, got engaged, or maybe where your parents got married. This can add a sentimental touch to the day and provide a backdrop for your memories. You can even choose a destination wedding.
Personalize your vows
Write your own vows to express your love and commitment to each other. This can add a personal touch to the ceremony and help you both to feel more connected. You can write about your hopes and dreams for the future, or your reasons for falling in love with each other. There are many ideas online to help get you started. But, remember, your vows are to each other. You don’t want to use something you find online without adding personal touches to make it your own.
Choose music that has personal significance. It can be anything from the first dance song or songs that have special memories associated with them. You could even ask a close friend or family member to sing a special song or play an instrument. And, don’t forget to include a private dance at the end of the reception. You will never regret spending a little extra time alone together before the magic of the reception ends.
Favors and guest gifts
Another way to add a personal touch is to use your wedding favors to share your interests or hobbies. For example, giving guests a plant if you both love gardening or a local food or drink item if you are foodies. Wedding favors are a great way to thank your guests for attending. They can also serve as a reminder of the special day. We’ve seen some really cute ideas like personalized maple syrup or bottled water labels, mini cupcakes or cookies with your initials, can koozies, fans, etc. You name it, you can personalize it!
Pick a theme
Having a themed reception is a great way to showcase your personality as a couple. Think of what you’re like together and pick a theme such as a vintage, goth, Harry Potter, superhero, etc. This can add a fun and playful touch to the day and help you both feel more relaxed. Additionally, it gives you a design plan target that keeps your wedding look cohesive.
His and hers cocktails and mocktails
Have a signature cocktail or signature dish that represents your favorite flavors or tastes. This is a great way to add a personal touch to the reception. Additionally, it can also help to create a memorable experience for your guests as they try to guess why you chose those drinks.
You could also use your wedding attire to make a personal statement. For example, by wearing a family heirloom or a special accessory that has meaning to you. We’ve seen a lot of fun men’s socks and women’s dressing gowns. You can also choose wedding attire that reflects your personal style. Whether that be a traditional dress, a modern suit, or a motorcycle jacket, whatever. As long as you feel comfortable, it’s a perfect personal touch!
Remember, the most important thing is to make your wedding day reflect the personality of you and your partner as a couple. By adding personal touches to your wedding, you can create a day that is truly special and unique that you will treasure forever.
