8 easy and affordable ways to personalize your wedding!
1. Heirloom/Heartfelt Details
A great way to add a personalized touch to your wedding is to include heirloom or heartfelt details. There are endless ways to include these unique features. You can attach an item to your wedding dress or bridal bouquet.
Photos are another great way to add a unique element to your wedding day. Your table centerpieces can include some of your favorite photos from your engagement session or photos of you and your partner at your favorite vacation spot or even photos of a passed loved one
Most of your wedding guests are hoping you don't have a 2 hour ceremony, but there are plenty of ways to keep it short, meaningful, and personal! You can "blend the sands." You and your partner will each have a container of colored sand and you each pour your sand into a larger container mixing them together, and signifying unity. This can also be done using red and white wine, and once the wines are mixed together you each take a sip.
Pro Tip: When hiring an officiant, be sure to communicate your ideas for making your ceremony personal to ensure they are willing to honor your wishes. Some officiants are very traditional and don't stray from their typical ceremony rituals.
When it comes to wedding programs, there's no reason you can't add your personal touches. A simple Google search for "personalized wedding programs" will provide with you a lot of options for creating some unique!
Many contemporary wedding ceremonies don't incorporate readings. This is likely because many ceremonies take place at the wedding venue location. Traditionally speaking, readings tend to be of a religious nature, but you can certainly mix it up! Include one or two of your favorite poems or even lyrics from your first dance song. Let your imagination run wild!
6. Ceremony Music
This is definitely an area many couples forget to consider when adding personal touches - ceremony music. Generally speaking, most ceremonies include a classical style of music, but you may want something with a different vibe. If you want to explore ways to personalize your ceremony music, be sure to sit down with your DJ to explore your options!
7. Time Capsule
This is an idea I love! Have a time capsule at your wedding reception and have your guests write you a special note to be read on your first anniversary. This is sure to bring a lot of smiles and maybe even some tears of joy!
8. Aisle Runner
Create an aisle runner for your wedding ceremony that reflects you and your wedding. Again, the sky is the limit, but as your guests take their seats they will experience this personal touch!
