Essentially, your wedding is all about you and your future spouse. With all the organizing and planning, it is easy to get carried away and overlook this. So here’s a reminder to begin weaving bits and pieces of you and your loved one’s personalities and interests, along with your love story, into your big day.
Anyone can host a wedding, but not everyone’s wedding stays in their guests minds for years to come. One way to do that is to show off your history with your future spouse in a unique way. In fact, it’s the perfect opportunity to do it!
If you are looking for new and effective ways to make your wedding more unique and memorable, keep reading.
Remember, it is the little touches that make a huge impact on your wedding guests. Why not consider personalizing everything? You can purchase customized plastic baggies for rice or monogram the drawstring bags you give your wedding party as gifts. Let your imagination lead the way and make sure to use a quality printing service to create these items, such as Deepking Label.
Create Travel Inspired Table Numbers
Do you and your future spouse love to travel? If the answer is “yes,” why not show off your adventurous spirit? Use travel related props for your table numbers. You can make the entire display even more personal if you mark all the different locations you have traveled to together. This is a fun way to bring a piece of yourselves into the event.
Many of the most memorable and intimate moments during your wedding are the ones that are personal and that no one else is aware of. Make sure your future spouse’s time getting ready is even more special by writing them a handwritten note. Don’t just leave it in the room, instead, leave it in the sole of their shoe. This is a great way to make every moment of your wedding day special. This tiny gesture is something you will both remember forever.
Use Mad Libs for Your Advice Cards
Getting advice about marriage, relationships, and life is something that is done at most weddings. With mad libs, you can put a spin on things and create an “advice station” that will explain the idea. Just think about how fun and personalized the responses are going to be. There is a good chance this will be a highlight of the event for everyone – you, your spouse, and your guests.
It is possible to make getting ready for the big day even more personal by creating unique and personalized monogrammed hangers. You can put their role, name, and the date of the event on the hangers. This is something they will be able to keep forever. What’s better than something personalized like this? It is not only special for the big day; it is also a useful keepsake for everyone in your wedding party to take home.
In Memoriam Notes
Not being able to have a beloved member of your family present on your wedding day can really bring down the mood. However, you can use your special day to honor their memory. You can put note cards in the napkins or under the place settings asking guests to think of the person or people who are unable to be there. You can make this even more special by adding a personal touch, like that person’s favorite herb or flower as decoration.
Cookies in the Shape of Your Home State
Does the treat table need a bit of personalization? Why not pay homage to where you and your spouse grew up? One of the best ways to do this is by serving treats shaped like your home states. To make them even more unique, you can ask your caterer to add the state flower to the state cookie. This is a fun and delicious way to customize your event.
Wedding Vows on a Scroll
Exchanging your vows is one thing. However, when you write them out on a scroll and use this as a backdrop, they can be used as an intimate and beautiful decoration at the reception. This is a unique way to create something special for your big day, and it creates a great photo opportunity.
Last Name Lettering
It is possible to dress up your entire cocktail bar area with a little imagination. Why not have your new last name spelled out and used as décor? This is a small detail, but one that is going to make your event feel much more unique and personal. This is also another great prop for photos later on.
Travel Suggestion Cards
It doesn’t matter if you are both avid adventurers and looking for somewhere new to go or if you just want to crowdsource a later-moon – add a “where should we go” station. You can put postcards with the sign and even set up a mailbox for guests to deposit their suggestions in. This is a great way to learn about your guest’s favorite places and get some new travel ideas.
Use a Quote Sign as Part of Your Wedding Decor
Do you and your spouse use a special saying with one another? For example, do they always say, “Love you more,” after you profess your love? If you do, why not put their response into a sign and use it at your wedding or reception? You can find an array of people who can create custom signage for you to use at your wedding. This is another great way to customize your big day.
Adding Your Unique Perspective to Your Big Day
After all the planning and preparation, when the big day finally comes, make sure you enjoy it. This is something that you will remember for the rest of your life. By adding the unique, custom, and personalized touches to your event, you will be able to create lasting memories for everyone who shares this day with you. Remember, it is your day and you can make it whatever you can dream up. If you need help with the planning and preparation, be sure to hire a professional wedding planner. They will help you get everything you want out of your big day.
