Your special day needs to be just that, special. To make your wedding day extra special you need to add a personal touch to let your personalities shine through to your guests. There are lots of different ways to add flair to your big day, and often, it’s original personal touches that really work.
Try DIY wedding accessories and decorations to get your guests talking. If you are feeling crafty then why not make your guests name tags yourself? Or wind fake Ivy around your balloon strings? There are so many ways to create the perfect stylish wedding day that everyone will love.
If you are not up for the DIY route (let’s face it, that’s a lot of handmade guest name tags), take a look at stores online that sell funky wedding accessories and decorations. Many stores like this, like Bridal Shower Co. make personalized gifts and wedding decorations to give your special day a touch of personality and style.
2. A theme to remember
A fast way to inject your wedding day with style is to come up with a fun theme for everyone to get involved in. Perhaps your significant other is a dapper 20’s fashion fan: it could be fun to set something like a Great Gatsby theme for everyone to get involved with. Or if you are getting married in a specific location, like the beach or a rooftop wedding, try to factor in a fun theme that works with your venue.
There are lots of ways to bring a theme to your wedding, without that alone stealing the show. You can brush off your DIY skills to add a specific theme to your wedding day.
3. Location, location, location
Whatever anyone says, the location of your wedding matters. For the special day itself and for the amazing memories you will capture on camera. Securing the right location for your wedding doesn’t have to be expensive; you can pick a location that means a lot to you and your special someone. Picking sentimental locations mean your wedding venue will hold a special story that you can tell to your guests.
