5 Easy Ways To Personalize Your Wedding
Most guests can agree that the best weddings are those that add their own personal touch. So think outside the box and add your own flair to your special day!
Here are a few easy ways to get you started:
1. “Gone But Never Forgotten” Table
Light a candle and leave a favorite article of clothing such as a scarf or pocket watch and photo on a table of a loved one who is gone but not forgotten.
2. Incorporating Mother-In-Law’s Favorite Flower
If your soon to be Mother-In-Law is a gardener at heart, why not incorporate her favorite flower in the wedding? It can be as simple as adding the flower to your bouquet or reception centerpiece. It’s such a thoughtful way to honor her and become the best Daughter-In-Law!
3. Display Old Family Wedding Photos
Gather old wedding photos of loved ones who have been married for years. Display these in a frame along with other family mementos as your centerpiece. Another idea is to display candid childhood snapshots of you and your fiancé around the guest book or by a photo booth. Both are great conversation starters!
4. Make Grandma’s Recipe Your Wedding Favor
Thinking about giving a wedding favor but can’t decide what to give? Find a baker to make your favorite mini pies. Attach your Grandma’s recipe and you’ve got a wedding favor to remember!
5. Entertainment For All Ages
Whether your reception will have a live band or DJ, make sure to play music that all your guests can enjoy. Even if you’re not a fan of the oldies, playing “The Way You Look Tonight” by Ol’ Blue Eyes himself, Frank Sinatra, will bring a smile to everyone’s face.
