You want your wedding to be a one-of-a-kind experience. The easiest way to do this is to add a little bit of your personality into the details. Here are three ideas that will inspire you.
1. Personalize the Rings
Instead of choosing a wedding ring from a catalogue or display case, get it custom-made. A professional jeweller can make you a one of a kind wedding ring featuring an engraving, using your favourite gemstones, gold colours and more. Whatever your vision, they will do their best to make it a reality so that you can wear an incredible piece down the aisle. They will work tirelessly to make your dreams come true.
A lot of couples assume that wedding rings should be plain, especially when the engagement ring is striking. That’s not true! You can get creative and flashy with these, too. If you’re looking for more than a gold band, consider using gemstones in your custom wedding ring, like:
- Mined or lab-grown diamonds
2. Serve Signature Cocktails
Give some personality to your cocktail hour. Talk to your bartender about making two signature cocktails or mocktails. The ingredients can be your favourite flavours, or you can get more symbolic with the mixology. Ask if they can base the ingredients on key personality traits. Here are some ideas for this:
- If you’re bubbly, add a splash of champagne.
- If you’re bold, add a shot of hard liquor.
- If you’re cool under pressure, add ice.
- If you’re bright, add citrus.
- If you’re sweet, add a sugary syrup.
Your cocktails can taste delicious and show off who you are as a couple.
3. Share Your Favourites
All too often, the happy couple treats their wedding favours as after-thoughts, giving their friends and families impersonal keepsakes like monogrammed magnets or shot glasses.
This is an opportunity to share something special with your loved ones. Give them something that makes you truly happy and interests you as a couple. If you consider yourself foodies, give out miniature bottles of homemade barbeque sauce or small jars of artisanal jam. If you like to spend your weekends toiling in the garden, give your guests succulents or packets of seeds that they can plant. There are lots of creative wedding favours that you could give out that express your true selves better than a corkscrew or keychain.
Doing this will make sure that you personalize yet another piece of your wedding and impress your guests, even after they’ve left the venue.
You don’t have to try very hard to make your wedding completely unique. By personalizing small but important details like the rings, the cocktails and the wedding favours, there is no way that you or your guests will feel like your celebration is like anyone else’s.
