Weddings are stressful, and planning for them can be a huge venture. Most of us want the beautiful, elegant weddings that we've grown up seeing and being in awe of. When it comes to your own wedding, don’t think of what other people have had or wanted - think of what suits you and your spouse the best. Your wedding day should scream, you! It should portray every aspect of you and your spouse’s time together. That’s why we suggest making your wedding day as personalized as possible. After all, the day is yours - make it something everyone will remember as uniquely you.
So what are some of the best ways to personalize your wedding day? Well, every part of your wedding day can be personalized. You can make everything from the wedding venue and décor to stationary and gift baskets reflect your style, tone, and personality.
If you are looking for ways to personalize your wedding, we’ve got you covered. Follow along and feel free to reach out with any questions.
Setting the Tone with Color
The first thing that you need to determine is the color palette you intend to use. The color scheme will be in pretty much every aspect of your special day. From your wedding parties clothing to all of your décor. You need to have a set color palette that you are able to piece together to create something truly special.
A great place to start is picking one main color - the color that speaks to you the most. Once you have the primary color picked out, then move onto your secondary and tertiary colors. You don’t want to go overboard with too many colors - this could lead to a very messy and busy look. So, focus on just a few colors that tie very well together and go from there.
In order to bring depth to your look, try mixing different textures, such as fabrics, together to create multiple layers. If you are at a standstill with picking out a color scheme, look up different color palettes. Eventually you will find something that speaks to you, something that has you written all over it. Either way you go, it’s kind of difficult to move forward with wedding planning if you don’t have a specific kit to pull from.
Grounding Your Wedding with Venues
An event as important as a wedding can't take place without a venue. Fortunately, the wedding industry is booming right now! Love is EVERYWHERE. With that being said, there are hundreds of thousands of venues that are readily available to book your wedding. To narrow down your dream location, if you don't already have one in mind, you'll need to consider your wedding date. Like I said earlier, the wedding industry is booming, so checking out bookings should be done as soon as possible.
Of course, a time and place shouldn't be chosen at random. Remember earlier when we were talking about your wedding color palette? This is where it starts coming into play! When picking out your wedding venue, you want to pick a place that will enhance your color palette. Consider the season and look at pictures, then take a tour if you can! Some venues are dull with certain color schemes, so you want to be able to tie it all together perfectly.
A Memorable Invitation for a Memorable Event
Sharing your special days with your friends and family is one of the most exciting parts of your wedding day. Sending out wedding invitations makes the entire thing feel so real. That’s right, you’re getting married! Your wedding invitations should be perfect. They give your guests a general idea of what to expect when attending your wedding.
If done correctly, your wedding invitations give insight into your color scheme, venue, and the overall vibe you're are going for. When creating your invitations, be sure to incorporate the colors that you will be using in your wedding. You want everything to be cohesive, even down to something as small as wedding invitations. Don’t let them be an afterthought. There are so many different ways to create wedding invitations. You can choose paper, acrylic, wood, digital, and much more! It all depends on what vibe you are going for. Are you looking for something more traditional or are you looking for something more modern? The choices are endless!
Putting the Details Into the Décor
You’ve dreamed about this day for as long as you can remember and it’s finally time. When you walk into your wedding venue it should be everything you’ve dreamed of! It will not be that way if you haven’t put in the work when it comes to picking out your wedding décor. As seen previously, you should always refer back to your color scheme and overall theme together when picking out wedding décor. The decorations you choose need to match the color palette that you picked at the beginning stages.
There are dozens of wedding elements that you can choose from and customize: an aisle, fresh floral, drapes and curtains, the altar - all of it falls under the category of decoration. So, as you can assume, wedding decoration is vital to creating perfection. And of course you can't forget about wedding accessories - lights, tablecloths, cake toppers and so much more! If you don't know where to start, we have you covered.
Capturing that Flair with Custom Signage
Don’t sleep on custom signage, it can play a very vital role in your wedding. From welcoming your guests to your wedding to directing your guests to the bar. Custom signage creates a sense of order, and I promise you want your wedding day to go as smoothly as possible. Consider things like custom seating charts, custom bar signage, and custom backdrops for pictures.
Signage is just another way to add your own personal flair to your special day. It shows that you’ve put thought and effort into creating a day that is special for both you and your guests.
Favors You Won't Forget
Don’t fall into the trap of providing your guests with wedding favors that end up stashed in the deepest, darkest corners of their home. Instead, give them something meaningful - something that they are able to cherish and keep as a memory from your wedding day. Don’t be afraid to be creative with your wedding favors - I promise your guests will be thankful. Yes, this day is all about you, however, it wouldn’t be possible without the support of your friends and family. Come up with different ways of saying thank you!
