Wedding personalization is a hot trend and we don’t see it going anywhere any time soon. A wedding day belongs to the couple, so why not show it in the details? Today, we’re sharing a few ideas on how to customize your wedding to you and your partner’s liking, but remember: when it comes down to it, wedding personalization is all about being creative together!
What better than to showcase your brand new initials at your reception? Whether it’s done through monogram lighting or as simple as a stamp on your programs or menus, your new initials will be a perfect way to honor your marriage!
Did you and your other half meet at a wine tasting? Was your first date to a sporting event? Do you share a passion for dogs or for running? Whatever it is, there is surely a way for you and your partner to incorporate your lives together into the details of your wedding.
Honor Your Heritage
Whether Jewish, Indian, Scottish, or Chinese, every culture has certain wedding customs that can easily be adapted into your ceremony. Talk to your family or your in-laws to learn more about the cultural traditions that you can include in your wedding. From the clothing worn to the colors displayed to the food served, there is certainly a way to honor your families on your big day.
Pick the Right Tunes
Of course, there are those songs that are played at every wedding. But, if you want to really amp up the personalization, have a chat with your DJ or band. Share your favorite songs and why they mean so much to you – they are experts in crafting playlists for the night, so let them take it from there!
A picture is worth a thousand words and weddings are no exception. Include pictures of your loved ones, those who couldn’t join, and even baby pictures of you and your partner. Your guests will love to look at them and it will really add to the experience!
Yep, we saved the best for last. If nothing else, handwritten vows are the truest way of personalizing your wedding. Writing your own vows allows you and your partner to put into words what you genuinely feel for each other, without the constraints of pre-scripted verbiage. Share some favorite moments together or when you truly realized that you were meant to be together – the more sincere, the better. There won’t be a dry eye in the room, and that includes you!
There are so many ways to make your special day belong to you and your partner. What are your favorite ideas?
See you soon,
