Tips for Personalizing Your Wedding

Your wedding is a day that celebrates you and your partner’s love and reflects who you are as a couple. So take your guests on a journey of your story and share your favorite things with all of your favorite people! Here are some of our favorite tips on how to make your wedding day uniquely yours…

1. Accessorize your look

When it comes to bridal footwear, women traditionally opt for a pair of neutral heels. For the playful bride, it’s a bold and beautiful choice to walk off the beaten path in cowgirl boots or a pair of sparkly sneakers.

Worried about chilly weather? Accessorize your bridal look with a customized monogram jacket! Not only will it make for great photographs, but it’ll also become a sweet keepsake you can treasure for years to come.

2. Gift local favors

Wedding favors are a great way to thank your guests, and provide a tangible memory of your celebration. Consider keeping yours local and showing what your region has to offer. It’s a win-win situation! You and your spouse get to support your favorite local businesses, and your out-of-town guests get to learn more about your life as a couple.

3. Hire a live painter

Hiring an on-site wedding painter allows you to capture the special moments of your wedding day in the form of a custom oil or watercolor painting! The artwork is something you’ll be sure to cherish forever and makes for the perfect home decor piece. It also provides a fun talking point for guests during cocktail hour.

4. Include your fur babies

Much like your future spouse, your pup is always there for you! Pay homage to your four-legged friend by illustrating them in wedding signage, incorporating them into family photos, or by having them walk down the aisle as a ring bearer.

5. Serve a signature cocktail

Have a drink that you and your partner love? Make it your signature drink! This is a great opportunity to put your personal stamp on your cocktail hour, and have some fun with it. You can also give your drink a clever name, or create a fun sign that explains the meaning behind the beverage.

6. Customize your table seating

Who says table numbers need to be numerical? Instead, give each table a dedicated name that reflects a part of your relationship. This can be inspired by places you’ve traveled, movie titles, hobbies… the options are endless.

7. Have a unique guest book

You will want a memento to remember all of your friends and family who joined you for your special occasion. These days, a wedding guest book no longer is limited to pen and paper. Get creative and think outside the box!

8. Glow with a neon sign

Neon signs featuring your last name or wedding hashtag are a small but splashy way to make your event decor feel more like you! Plus, it’s a super Instagram-able photo op your guests will love.

9. Create a custom cake topper

While we love flower-dressed cakes, we also can’t get enough of customized toppers. Add some personality to your cake with a quirky topper that represents you and your partner. It might seem like a small detail, but this is an element you can have a lot of fun with!

10. Exit in style

Leaving your wedding can be bittersweet, but adding a fun getaway will make it much more enjoyable. To make your exit memorable, say farewell to guests while riding off in a cool car (or boat, or bus). Whether your wedding style is rustic, vintage, or modern, there’s a ride that fits your vibe.
