You've been looking forward to your wedding day for as long as you can remember, so it's fun to plan every aspect of your big day. You've likely attended plenty of weddings, so it's important to add personal, unique touches to your ceremony and reception to make them stand out from the crowd.
Make It Personal
Your love story is unlike anyone else's, and you want your wedding day to reflect the special love that you and your partner share. If you want to make your wedding memorable, incorporate personal touches as much as possible.
There are a countless number of ways to personalize your wedding. Decorate the church's foyer with wedding photos from your grandparents, include a reading from one of your love letters during the ceremony, write your own vows, use your favorite songs or even move away from the traditional ceremony to a more casual, personalized event.
There are no right or wrong ways to personalize your wedding, so do whatever you can to make the day more meaningful for yourselves and for your guests.
Use Your Favorites
Many weddings use similar style and decor. There's nothing wrong with traditional wedding decorations, but brides who want to stand out often choose to use their favorite items instead.
Find a florist that offers a wide range of flowers, foliage and other decorations, so you don't feel obligated to stick with traditional wedding favorites. Instead, incorporate you and your partner's favorite flowers and greenery into your wedding and ceremony venues.
If your favorite colors aren't traditionally used in weddings, you should still feel free to implement them. Bold, bright colors add a splash of excitement to your event, and you'll love seeing your favorite colors when you look at your wedding photos.
Customize the Menu
One of the things the guests will remember most about your wedding is the food, and few things invoke positive memories as much as memorable foods and beverages. Today, many couples are choosing to add a personalized touch to the reception by including some of their favorite foods.
You can choose to customize the entire menu with your favorites, or simply add on a few of your favorite dishes in addition to the more traditional foods that you will be serving. Other brides and grooms include their favorite desserts along with the wedding cake. If you're not a big fan of cake, you can even choose to have wedding pies or a delicious ice cream bar to delight your guests at the end of the meal.
Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life. When you take the time to add extra personal touches to your wedding and reception, it will be an unforgettable day for both you and your guests.
