How to Personalize Your Wedding
Your wedding is an expression of who you are and the future you plan to share with the man/woman of your dreams. Now is the time to splash your signature style all over every part of your special day. Wave your creative wand over every aspect of the venue, menu and decor.
Have fun with it and celebrate YOU!
Here are a few fun ways to personalize your wedding to make it an unforgettable experience for your family and friends who won’t be able to stop saying: “That is so you!” over and over.
Let’s start with choosing a venue.
Are you the laid back, casual, rustic type? Maybe a beautiful barn or horse ranch is for you.
History buff or love historical romance novels? Choose any of the number of historic sites in the New England area that offer a serene, classic atmosphere that provides the perfect backdrop for your fairytale wedding.
Is there a particular season you just adore? Do you dream of a winter wonderland? Or does being near the water invigorate and inspire you? There are beaches and lakes, hills and mountains, flowers and trees and gardens. Nature is so full of vitality and beauty that you can use to enhance your nuptial journey.
There is truly a venue for every mood and preference.
The main thing is that the venue be an expression of your unique personality and taste.
How about an overall theme to the wedding. Here are some ideas :
9.Wizard of Oz
16.Alice in Wonderland
17.Wizardry and Whimsy
19.Game of Thrones
23.Country and Cattle
28.Color and Texture
29.Pop of Color
34.Fourth of July
36.Pink Candy Land Christmas
41.Fine Art and Sculpture
57.New York City
60.White Desert Sands
65.Sequins and Glitter
67.Tropicana and Balloons
68.Sophisticated Secret Garden
I think you get the picture. The ideas are absolutely endless and you can really have fun with it.
Don’t be afraid to break from tradition when it comes to your ceremony either.
Spend this special time crafting your vows in a way that is meaningful to you both and that will carve themselves into your hearts forever. If poetry is your thing, write a sonnet in calligraphy on special parchment. Do you love a particular piece of music? Incorporate it into the ceremony. This is your day to shine in the way that you always dreamed of–not a time to please the rest of the world.
Want to ensure that your vows are displayed and kept safe? Write them on your wedding cake or embroider them on a tapestry. Have them beautifully written on parchment and place them in a time capsule to be opened on a future anniversary.
One ingenious idea is to write your vows on the wedding day aisle runner and use it as a backdrop for some uniquely memorable photos. Engrave vows on hanging prints, jewelry, cufflinks, pillows, posters, handkerchiefs–all ways to make sure your wedding vows stay top of mind and heart.
If your ceremony is more traditional, you can always change tacks and incorporate a different unique theme into the reception.
Weave your personality into a theme that seamlessly flows throughout each part of the day. What do you love? What speaks to your deepest desires and interests?
If you love to travel, make a travel theme and have food stations with exotic foods from different countries. The tables can each represent its own country and be decorated with flags and cultural symbols.
Are you an artist or a musician?
Have each table focus on an album or famous artist and adorn it with their unique signature style. Color schemes can reflect the personality of each artist and you can really get creative with this.
Play the music you love–and dance the night away with the people you love most.
Don’t leave the music selection up to the band or DJ. Unless that’s what you want. Request all your favorite songs to blend sweet memories with future dreams.
Who says the bride and groom don’t get to eat at their weddings? Who made that unspoken rule?
Eat drink and be merry!
Create a menu around your favorite foods and drinks. The food can go along with your theme or not. It’s up to you.
The world is truly your oyster on this special day.
Finally, let’s talk about wedding favors.
Not everybody gives out favors and it is definitely not a requirement.
But if you want to use a bit more of your creativity and leave your guests with a memory that lasts a lifetime, consider these cute but budget friendly ideas, all personalized:
- Colorful glittery mini-clothes pins
- Credit card bottle openers
- Personalized wedding glass coasters
- Naturally vintage tent favor boxes
- Monogrammed Hershey Kisses
- White matches with personalized box
- Toothpick box
- Personalized rustic favor bags
- Organic leaves placecards
- Personalized mint life savers boxes
- Bubbles in wedding cake shaped bottle
- Wedding bubbles in champagne bottle

“Sherri is absolutely the best. She made wedding planning easy for me – a long distance, not detail oriented bride, and on the wedding day all my family and I had to do was enjoy ourselves. Throughout the planing process she was prompt and attentive, sending me weekly “homework” emails that broke down the steps into very manageable pieces. She was ever patient with my sometimes less than timely replies, and never had to be asked to do anything- Sherri is always five steps ahead. Sherri worked so hard for us, and the result was an absolutely beautiful wedding day that I could never have imagined. The best example: Sherri had her husband cut down two trees to decorate our tent, which was spectacular, and then had coasters made from the trees and sent them to us as a gift. Sherri truly does think of everything. Hiring Sherri to help with our wedding was the best decision we made (other than getting married of course!). I would highly, highly recommend Sherri for any and all events you may be planning. Thank you Sherri!”
