When your big day arrives, you want it to be special so that you will remember it with fondness for the rest of your life. There are tons of traditions and other things that are usually present at a wedding, but that doesn’t mean you can’t add your own ideas to your day. Check out these touching choices and you’re wedding will be so meaningful that you’ll never want it to end.
Instead of those tiny containers of bubbles, consider a handmade wedding favor. For my wedding, I colored homemade seed packets that we handed out filled with the blooms that were at the wedding.
Maybe you don’t want to wear your mom’s gown, but you can still carry a piece of her with you. Maybe you could wear her veil or the earrings she got married in.
Instead of only getting formal, posed shots at your wedding, ask your photographer to take some candids too. Or, hand out disposable cameras and have your guests take pictures for you.
What’s shoe note? It’s when the bride and groom write each other a tiny love note on the bottom of their wedding shoes.
Will your wedding be missing a special person? Wind a ribbon with that person’s name through your bouquet so they still feel like part of your big day.
Have your bridesmaids wear hot pink heels or bright yellow statement necklaces so that you have something big and bright for your pictures.
Add your own wedding toasts to make your big day that much more special and memorable.
Share your love story with your guests by telling everyone how it happened or by setting up a photo slide show.
Place some cards on the tables and ask your guests to pen some marriage advice. You’ll have so much fun reading them all after the big day is over.
The traditional church vows are beautiful, but if they don’t fit your style, you and your groom can write your vows to each other.
No, I’m not suggesting tending bar at your own wedding. Instead, many couples are choosing a special brew for their wedding. Brew it yourself or order your own personal flavor from a local brewery.
Instead of combining your two flames in one unity candle, spread your flames to candles that each of your guests are holding. This brings you all together and creates a unique memory you can share forever.
Get started with your new initials right away by having your new monogram embroidered on your wedding veil.
Will all your guests be posing your wedding photos on social media? Create a wedding hashtag so your guests can share the big day with you.
When you send out your RSVP cards, have your guests request a song. Then use those ideas to create the perfect wedding playlist for your wedding.
Instead of the usual cards with your guests’ names written in calligraphy, mark their seats with candid photos of each of them. Fun!
Instead of just writing it all down, add photos and graphics that make your wedding program something everyone will want to hang on to forever.
