Ways to add more personality to your wedding – Article By Naomi Shaw
We all know that planning a wedding can be taxing and stressful at times. After all, there is a lot to do and accomplish in just a few months. Wedding planning can find many brides and grooms favoring the tried and true wedding traditions which can lead to a batch of cookie-cutter weddings – almost identical affairs with no personality. Thankfully, there are a few ways to add more personality to your wedding without being overwhelmed or spending precious hours searching for unique ideas to make your trip down the aisle standout. With a little creative thinking and careful planning, you can easily make your big day about you and your partner by adding a little personality to create a wedding that is undeniably you.
To help on this journey, please scroll through the following ways to add more personality to your wedding:
Design your custom engagement and wedding rings.
Each couple obviously has a unique and special relationship which can be difficult to highlight when it comes to choosing the perfect wedding and engagement rings. For the most part, wedding rings are pretty standard with little wiggle room for adding personality. Thankfully, we have more options than just gold or silver. Today’s technology allows you to design, personalize, and create a one-of-a-kind wedding ring worthy enough for your significant other.
Add a little favor to the party.
Create swag bags for your guests that feature candies, small toys, and trinkets that were your favorite goodies when you and your fiance were children. Guests will love the trip down memory lane, enjoy learning about you as a couple and savor the sweets.
Bring meaningful locations to the wedding.
A great way to add a touch of personality to your wedding is to think about essential locations in your relationship. Where did you meet? Where did you get engaged? Where did you first say “I love you”? Use these special places where “it” all started for inspiration and design.
Repurpose items to craft creative and personal centerpieces.
Look for primitives, old books, retro glasses, wood discs, and other funky junk items to add a little personality to your wedding. For instance, if you are avid readers, find old books and turn them into planters filled with succulents. The possibilities are endless and will help you put your mark on the festivities.
Snap the perfect memories by providing a unique photo booth.
You can entertain and create memories by utilizing a photo booth at your wedding. There are a variety of ways to go about this, but the important thing is to choose what works for you. You can create an open-air photo booth for large groups, rent a traditional booth, or create a festival feel by hiring a one-of-a-kind car with a built-in photo booth for your guests to enjoy. Whatever photo booth you choose, your guests will enjoy posing for photos and bringing home personalised wedding favours.
Pick the perfect bouquet.
Flowers are a great way to add more personality to your wedding because each bloom and colour can represent different meanings and emotions. Choose flowers to tell your story or embrace unique centerpieces featuring potted herbs and succulents. Whatever, you do, flowers can express your personality in ways that other decorations don’t.
Channel your mother or grandmother for inspiration.
If your mother or grandmother is willing, use pieces of their dresses or veils to create the ring bearer’s pillow, fabric flowers, or sew them into your dress. For added fun, recreate their wedding bouquets or use their colors in your theme.
Develop a signature cocktail for your wedding.
A subtle way to add a pop of personality is to design and serve a signature cocktail. Look for a drink that tells your story or reflects you as a couple. Then, give the concoction a meaningful name. We have seen people name their drinks after their dog, the city they fell in love, the college where they met, and so on.
Play with your food.
As a couple, with the help of your caterer, design a menu that blends your heritage, favorite foods, comfort foods, regional fare, street foods, and more that can highlight your relationship.
Cut the cake and embrace a dessert bar.
Instead of the traditional white cake and messy chocolate fountain, provide access to a stylized layout featuring fun desserts. Offer a candy bar filled with your favorite treats, a popcorn bar with a wide array of flavors and stir-ins, ice cream sundae bar, or design a rustic s’more bar with all the chocolate, marshmallow, graham cracker fixings a person could imagine
