7 Personal Touches on Your Wedding to Make It Feel Intimate
The day you say ‘I do’ will be one of the most important days of your life and sharing it with family and friends makes it even more special. However, it can be easy to lose that personal touch, especially if you’re planning a large wedding.
If you’re planning for a large wedding, here are seven things you can do to add that personal touch:
1. Create your own monogram
This is a great way to add your own personal style to your wedding. Create a monogram that can be included on menus, invitations and just about anywhere else you can think of. Wedding guests can keep any branded material to remember your wedding.
- Display family photos
It’s great to tell your story to your guests. Displaying family photos will give your guests a nostalgic feeling. Family and friends will feel honored having been featured as part of your wedding. It also gives your guests a chance to share in great memories.
- Wedding favors
Give your guests unique favors to remember your wedding. You can choose anything to include in favors from tasty treats, such as cakes and sweets, to monogrammed matchboxes or forks. This is an opportunity to explore your creative side.
- Set the mood
Use lighting to set a romantic mood for your wedding. The ceremony doesn’t have to be in the evening to achieve a romantic setting. Use candles or lamps to set that romantic scene.
- Express your personality through food
Food is a great way to express your individuality. Do you have a favorite food that you’d like to share with your guests? It may be hot dogs, burgers or even a particular flavor of ice cream. Ensure that you include mini versions of one of your favorite meals to add that personal touch.
- A touch of culture
Give your guests a touch of your culture by including meals or décor that reflects this. A bowl of pasta with an Italian twist would be a great way to celebrate your Italian heritage, for example. Little flags or maps showing where your family finds its roots are also great personal touches.
- Pick music that moves you
Set the dance floor alight with music that moves you. Choose a song that is special to both of you to start off. Include fun music to ensure that guests feel moved to get up and dance.
There are lots of places to find inspiration for adding a personal touch to your wedding online. A word of warning though: don’t get caught up in the details. Your priority should be to plan a day that you and your guests will enjoy and remember for a long time to come.
