When it comes to planning your wedding day, you want it to be absolutely perfect. Whether you want a hog roast, your favourite flowers in your bouquet or  an outdoor ceremony, everyone has something different that is a ‘must have’ on their big day.

But if there’s one thing we can all agree on, it’s that you want it to be personal to the both of you. From the Save The Dates to the Honeymoon, you want your special day to positively radiate that ‘zsa-zsa-zsu’, that ‘je ne sais quoi’  that is uniquely your style, personality and history together.

Luckily there are a multitude of things you can do when designing your wedding to achieve this, all in a range of budgets and time commitments. So to assist in your planning I have started this short series of blog posts dedicated to all the ways you can personalise your wedding.

To begin with I want to talk about personalising your wedding with detailing. The little things you can buy, make and design that are easy to personalise to make them relate back what is uniquely you as a couple.

The Centrepieces

I love flowers and always enjoy seeing the beautiful floral creations on the tables, however, it can be a bit of a lost opportunity to call it a day at just flowers. Mini blackboards are a great way to show off your favourite quotes, or even have the flower vases embellished with your names/important dates. Trinkets can work here too; hats, mini gramophones, plants and herbs that people can take home, mini birdcages, candles with your favourite scents. You can put anything in the middle of a table, so pick something with meaning to you that will personalise your wedding centrepieces.

The Flowers

Flowers are a huge part of any wedding day, but people often lose sight of how they can be made into a feature of personalising your wedding beyond choosing their favourite flower in the bridal bouquet. Although certainly, you should do that!

But there’s more potential for flowers than you might think. For a long time flowers were used to convey a particular message or meaning. Red roses symbolise love and desire, anemones symbolise anticipation and hydrangeas symbolise heartfelt emotion. You could have some fun and use the language of flowers to share your thoughts on your wedding day. 

The Accessories

What a word to describe such a wide array of things! A massively important part of personalising your wedding with details is your choice of accessories. This could apply to your decorations in the venue and reception; your linens, your table settings, your dining wares, your signage, your favours. Any of these things can be accessorised with your own personal touch. If you’re having a festival theme you can provide hay bales for your guests to sit on. If you met while travelling why not include an item from each of the countries you have visited. Maybe incorporate something from your first date, such as a type of food you ate. You get the idea!

If you have a theme, or something in particular that means a lot to you as a couple, always find ways that you can include it in these little details instead of opting for the generic style. Whether it’s subtle or not, the ways you can personalise your wedding with detailing are endless! Have fun coming up with ways to accessories, so all the small touches become very personal to you.

I’d love to hear more about your ideas for personalising your wedding so do get in touch.
