Arguably the most memorable day of your life, your wedding not only signals the start of a lifelong journey with your loving partner, but it’s also a day to create long-lasting memories with family and friends.
While there are hundreds of helpful guidelines to ensure your wedding goes off perfectly as planned, adding a touch of personalization can make your big day even more special.
Here are a few simple ways to add that personal touch.
Personalize your food and drink
Using your food and drink to showcase your personality goes a long way in telling your story and entertaining your guests. Choosing food options that are meaningful to you and your partner is a great way to make the night yours.
Don’t be afraid to get creative with your food menu. If both you and your partner are a fan of waffles, for example, consider offering a delicious combo of chicken and waffles for an entree.
For drinks, you can’t go wrong with replicating the cocktail you and your soon to be spouse enjoyed on your first date. It will get your guests talking and pay homage to the night that started it all. If you’re feeling extra adventurous, give the drink a fun and playful name like “about thyme” or “mint to be.”
To give your guests a part of your wedding that they can remember, consider investing in a gorgeously designed monogram details.
“A monogram detail is one of the most beloved and widespread tradition,”. according to an article by BBJ Linen about wedding design. Simple and meaningful, this elegant addition makes for a wonderful keepsake for loved ones after your vows are said.”
Adding the names of your guests to napkins and placeholders is also a great way to add some personalization to your wedding and ceremony. When making name tags and placeholders include your guest’s nicknames to make the evening even more special.
Use Your Favorite Colors
Using you and your partner’s favorite colors throughout your wedding is another way to add a personal touch. If you are both sports fans, for example, consider including the logo or colors of your favorite team in your wedding decorations.
You can also use various lightening styles to strategically alter the mood depending on the specific part of the ceremony. The Bridal Guide suggests, “use lighting to alter the feel of the space.” You can have the colors and brightness of the lights change throughout the night to set different moods.
Finish the night strong
To top off your wedding day and create a strong, lasting impression, offer your guests homemade mini cookies served in adorably decorated bags. Your guests will absolutely love taking a bite of their cookies as they make their way back home.
