How to Give Your Wedding the Personal Touch

There’s much to love about weddings, but it’s hard to deny that sometimes they can begin to feel a little samey. There are trends to follow, things that people think they have to include, and so on. If you go to multiple weddings in a year, then they may eventually begin to blur into one. So when it comes to your wedding, make sure that you do things differently, and ensure that it truly stands out from the crowd. While there are many ways to do this, the best, most reliable way is to give your wedding a personal touch. Your wedding will be memorable for all the right reasons if every decision has been put through the frame of your personality. Below, we take a look at some of the areas where you can make things a little more personal. 

Where You’ll Get Married

There’s no shortage of beautiful destinations around the world, it’s true, but they’re not all going to be right for you. Sometimes, people get married in a stunning venue, which is great, but you could argue that these weddings lack a little soul. All the charm exists on the surface. This is not the case when the bride and groom have a close emotional connection to the venue. So when it comes to picking where you’ll get married, think about a place that’s close to your heart. There’ll be space for decorations (more on those later), but fundamentally, the place should be somewhere that’s close to your heart.

Your Wedding Invites

They say that you should start as you mean to go on! So look at getting things off on the right foot by ensuring that your save the date reminders and wedding invitations have a personal touch. For your save the date cards, look at sending something through the post: there are digital options, but they lack the personal factor. For your main invitations, take a look at diy wedding invites. There’s just something extra special about sending something that you have personally made with your loved one. Also, be sure to add a personal touch -- for example, you could ask your guests to include a song that they want to hear on the dancefloor. 

Your Own Party

If you put enough good people together and throw on some good songs, then the party will be a good one, no doubt. But it might not be all that different from what you experience at all the other weddings that are held each other. As such, one good way to make your wedding stand out from the crowd is to throw your own party, not anybody else’s. To do this, think about what you really like when you’re out having fun. Are you a cheesy 80s pop song kind of couple, or do you get down to deep techno? Whatever it is, make sure it forms the basis of your party. You may want to throw in a couple of standard wedding party songs so that all of your guests have something to dance to, but by and large, make it yours. 

Personalised Food and Drink Options

The same principle can be applied to the food and drinks that you serve. Sometimes, people do away with their personal preferences altogether, and instead, serve items that they think fit in with a wedding. But if you’ve never been a wine person in your life, then it doesn’t make much sense to suddenly become one when you’re getting married. One fun thing to do is to come up with your own cocktails. It doesn’t get much more personal than serving your own signature cocktail at your wedding party!

Your Wedding Decorations

You can also think about how you’re going to decorate your wedding party. There will be plenty of options, but there’s surely room for a few personal touches. These could be photos from your travels, childhood, favourite quotes, and so on. It’ll ensure that the wedding is dripping with your personality. 

Traditions You’ll Keep, Traditions You’ll Discard

Ultimately, if you’re going to have a personal wedding, then it’s important that you think about the wedding traditions that you’ll keep, and the ones that you’ll discard. Traditions aren’t compulsory: they’re just suggestions. If you’d rather get rid of one in favour of doing your own thing, then do it. Your wedding will feel much more authentic and original if you’ve put your own spin on the traditional wedding, rather than simply doing everything that everyone else does.
