Every bride and groom wants their wedding day to be the event of the year for their family and friends. It’s a day to be together and celebrate the relationship they watched unfold embark on a brand new chapter of life. Make sure your wedding has elements and details that show off your love story in the most unique way with these 6 tips.
Save the dates and invites are the first glimpse guests see of your wedding style. Make sure this first impression speaks to you as a couple and shows off the setting for the wedding day. Add a personal touch to your invites with watercolor scenes, illustrations, motifs, significant quotes or monograms for a lasting impression.
‘To have and to hold’ is a beautiful commitment made between two people and the rings are the outward symbolism of that vow. These wedding rings will be worn for the rest of your life as husband and wife so ensure they are everything you would ever want them to be. Make your wedding rings unique to you as a couple by engraving the wedding date or special words onto the inside or by choosing a different colored stone rather than a diamond. There are no boundaries to how you can make your bands special to your love story.
The reception is where most of your style will come through and be shown on your wedding day. Choose table settings and details to show off your personalities or tie in the interests you both have. Trends are great and all but personal details such as naming the tables destinations you’ve traveled to together or incorporating a favorite color will leave a lasting impression on guests and make your wedding day unique.
A great way to keep the decor personalized is to try your hand at DIY projects for signs and favors or to incorporate significant items from past memories as a couple.
A wedding with great food is always one guests will remember! If the food is unique to your cultures, location or relationship then that alone will create a wedding day different from others that guests will never forget.
I love when flowers are used in interesting ways for a wedding. The colors and textures of different flowers set the mood for each table or centerpiece. Even the bouquets carried by the bride and bridesmaids can create a lasting image for guests. Try using seasonal flowers unique to your location or native flowers for a destination wedding to add an interesting element to the arrangements.

The easiest way to make your wedding day more unique is to share special memories together through photos. It also reminds guests of certain memories you have shared and brings the relationship full circle. If photos aren’t your thing then offer a glimpse into your lives with certain music selections, toasts or personalized vows.
