When it comes to planning your wedding, one thing to always keep in mind is how you can add your own personality and style to your theme. Today we’re sharing six ways to personalize your wedding day with special touches and details.
1. Personalize Save the Dates and Invitations
Personalize your wedding from the start with save the dates that feature some of your engagement photos. Not only do they set the tone for your theme, they’re a great way to infuse some personality into your stationery.
Follow your save the dates with invitations to match – personalizing both pieces will give your guests an idea of your style and will know what to expect when they attend your wedding!
2. Personalize the Wedding Toast
Once your wedding is underway, infuse your personality in your first toast as husband and wife – not only with the words you say but with the glasses you toast with and the drink you sip in celebration.
Customized glasses with your names and wedding date are always a hit and you can assign a glass to each guest to use throughout the night to toast with. Whether you choose mason jar style mugs, stemless wine glasses or custom champagne flutes, a toast out of a custom-made glass is a perfect way to personalize your wedding.
And don’t toast with just any drink – decide on a signature wedding drink that is one of your favorites or one that matches your theme. Sweet sangria for a summertime soirée, a blueberry Moscow mule for a loft style cocktail hour or a grapefruit salty dog for a blush hued wedding – whatever your choice, a signature drink is a lovely way to treat your guests and personalize your wedding day.
3. Personalize Your Decor
Adding personal touches to your decor is the perfect way to infuse your character into your wedding. In everything from the centerpieces to the signage, there are many ways to add your own style.
Help guests find their seats with tables named for some of the favorite trips you’ve taken or places you have lived. Fill the centers of your tables with your favorite garden flowers, and design custom signage to help direct guests to find their way on your big day. The more ways you can find to personalize your wedding, the more your guests will get a feel for who you are as a couple.
4. Personalize Your Place Settings
Once your guests find their tables, add a little something extra to their place settings. Along with a pretty personalized menu, include a sweet burlap sack with your initials and wedding date to keep the utensils in place. Not only is it the perfect personal touch, it’s a wonderful little keepsake bag for your guests to take with them.
5. Personalize Your Cake
Choosing a cake flavor and design can be a fun way to personalize your wedding. But adding the finishing touches – like a flower and cake topper – make your cake one of a kind. When choosing a cake topper, find something that matches your wedding style. There are so many gorgeous options to choose from – from initials to phrases and everything in between.
6. Personalize Your Favors
Personalize your wedding with a parting gift that will remind your guests of the fun they had at your wedding. Pretty little favor boxes filled with candies are the perfect way to send your guests off, and a little treat for the way home or for the hotel stay is always welcome!
No matter what your wedding theme, personalize your wedding with special details from your lives that will make your day that much more special.
