Your wedding is going to be one of the most important milestones of your life. It’s a milestone that a lot of us get to appreciate and look forward to. For that reason, however, it can be tricky business trying to make your wedding stand out from the rest and really evoke your individuality. We’ve compiled our top 8 ways to personalise your wedding, so your special day will be remembered for years to come.
1. Creative vows
Having heartfelt, original vows is one of the best ways to accurately express how much the wedding means to you, whilst also reinforcing to your guests why they are there. A well-crafted vow can bring down the house, and make both women and men cry. They don’t have to be handwritten or flashy, you just have to mean them. Draw inspiration from your favourite lyrics, books and poems to help you communicate just how much you love your partner.
2. Cake toppers
Don’t listen to what anyone says, cake toppers are back! Cake toppers are a timeless, classic method of personalising a cake. These days, there are a huge range of cake toppers that you can choose from and personalise. From wooden script cake toppers featuring your names, to Mr. & Mrs., to monograms, or even lyrics for your first dance song!
3. Customised drinks
Serve drinks that reflect you as a couple. Perhaps you’re favourite wine is rosé, and your favourite cocktail is an Aperol Spritz? Serve both alongside other non-alcoholic refreshments so your guests can get a palatable taste of who you are and what you enjoy. Not only can you customise the drinks your guests will be sipping, but you can also personalise the vessels they’re sipping out off! Monogram glasses or plastic cups with the initials of the bride and groom to add that special touch to your special day.
One of the best ways to ensure your wedding is remembered long after it is over, is to extend the life of the day by having a photo booth. These days, there are a wide range of photo booth hire services on the Gold Coast, that will enable you to customise your photo booth to personally represent you and your partner. One way to do this is to have personalised photo booth strips serve as a memento of your big day.
5. Cater the food to your tastes
Do you have a sweet tooth? Why not eat dessert first? Perhaps you’re more of a savoury fiend? What about stacked cheese wheels instead of a wedding cake? Whatever you decide, remember that this is your day. You are projecting who you and your partner are to the world, and the more personalised the event is, the more special it will be for both you and your guests.
So whatever your tastes or desires, make sure that they are communicated as best you can with all the tools your wedding can provide you with. Personalise the drinks and food, write original, meaningful vows and design a unique and entertaining cake topper. Once all this is done, ensure your day is remembered forever by hiring a personalised photo booth to capture each and every moment. Most of all – enjoy yourselves!
