Adding a personal touch to your special day can be quite the challenge, especially if you are the last one in your friendship group to tie the knot. Fear not though, these five tips will help you to surprise your guests and make your day dramatically different.
The easiest way to make sure your wedding is unique right from the start is to design your own invitations. Your wedding invites are designed to get your guests excited about the big day, so give them a taste of things to come with bespoke invitations. If your wedding invites are uninspiring and boring it will not give a great first impression to your guests. Don’t be afraid to stray from the classic white designs; add an element of fun with a theme or photos of the happy couple.
Personalise your Wedding Program
Surprise your guests by creating a wedding program with a personal twist. If you don’t want to write your own vows, why not share a few romantic words with your guests in your program? If certain guests are doing readings at the ceremony, give them a mention in the program and include a few fun facts.
Design your Own Wedding Ring
One way to make your wedding truly unique is to design your own wedding bands. This is not only a great way to ensure your ring design showcases your unique sense of style, but it also adds a unique touch to the ceremony itself.
Get Creative with Wedding Favours
Forget run-of-the-mill wedding favours; give your guests something to talk about with personal favours that are tailored to each individual. Why not place an individually written thank you card at each place setting and let each guest know in your own words how much it means to share your special day with them? Alternatively, you could add a touch of excitement by giving each guest a lottery ticket in place of a bog-standard wedding favour.
Your wedding guests will be expecting a selection of red and white wine at the wedding reception, but that doesn’t mean you are limited to these choices. Provide your guests with a choice between the bride’s or the groom’s favourite cocktail on arrival, or create stunning centrepieces with beautiful silver buckets and fill them with champagne or wine. Serving wine from the years that you were born is also a nice touch.
