Most importantly, your mind is unconsciously on a look out for a romantic honeymoon destination. Your friends joke around about dance performances and wedding gifts. And all you do is laugh it off.
But, what about when all your fantasies start taking shape into reality?
Truth be told, it can be stressful. You want your day to be special and memorable. Not just for you but also your guests. And secretly, you want it to be talk of the town. One of the many ways to achieve a memorable wedding day is by personalizing it.
So here I am to tell you about 6 ways to personalize your wedding decorations to add a wow factor to your special day.
Create a hashtag
Modern weddings are all about hashtags. No, not a generic one like #bridetobe or #groomandbride. More like #virushka and #mr&mrssmith. Basically, ones that are unique and the couple relates to. You can create your unique hashtag by combining your names, using some inside jokes or phrases that are frequently included in your conversations.
Once you are done deciding, use this hashtag everywhere. While posting wedding photos on Instagram, designing props or you can even customize it on your entrance. If you want to go a little overboard, turn your hashtag into a giant showpiece to make a backdrop for your wedding photos.
Create a monogram
If hashtags are not your style, go for a monogram. Not only are they elegant, but also multi functional. Begin with a design for your monogram. You can be simple or sophisticated. Conventional or casual. You’ll be surprised to see how monograms contribute to make your decorations go up a level. Personalize your wedding invitations by wax sealing them with your monograms. Or make a statement with a big monogrammed sign at your entrance or behind the bride table. You can also highlight your wedding cake with your initials on it. There are multifarious monogram ideas that you can incorporate in your wedding.
Tell your story
Weddings are one of those days when people won’t judge you for talking too much about yourself. So, go all out. Talk about how and where you met, your first date, when he proposed, basically, your love story. Let me give you some ideas. Make a photo wall at your wedding venue. Put up some selfies, your travel photos and even some pre-wedding photographs. You can hire a professional or just DIY. Another unique idea is creating a short video about your love story and projecting it on your venue.
A little humor never hurt anyone, right? So add a little dose of laughter into your wedding by transforming yourself into cartoons. You can turn your couple photographs into caricatures and add a personal touch. Put it up on your napkins, photo wall or frame it for a canvas on your entryway. You can even have them printed on cushions and catalogs.
Personalize your wedding favors
Wedding favors are an essential part of a wedding. It is a way to thank your guests for their time and blessings. Now, if you are looking for some uniqueness in this department begin by choosing gifts that your guests will actually enjoy. Like mini foods, some macaroons, a bottle of fine wine, mini candles or even a sapling. Next, Customize them. You can add handwritten notes on each item. Or get your initials, monograms and cartoons printed on them.
A lot of your favorite celebrities like Priyanka Chopra and Karlie Kloss had hidden messages embroidered on their wedding dresses. It’s a great way to make your wedding dress even more special. These inscriptions can be your wedding date, a love quote or your spouse’s name. The best part is that you can do it in almost all of your wedding decorations. From napkins to shoes and even wine glasses.
