Spring is here, and we’re ready for another wedding season! Couples are diving into full-on planning mode, and one of the most common questions we’re hearing at Loverly is, “How can I make my wedding feel special?” Every bride wants to add a personal touch to her big day, and the easiest way to do so is by adding details that are one of a kind. We’ve gathered up some of our favorite pieces and ways to incorporate a “made for me” feeling into your wedding day.
The wedding day is all about the bride and groom, so start by adding personal touches to your accessories, personal correspondence, and attire. We love the look of a completely custom shoe for the bride or meaningful cufflinks for the groom. And a hand-drawn portrait can be used in everything from thank you cards to programs or favors.
If you want to make your wedding party feel extra special, extend a personal touch to gifts or ensembles. Think custom-made jewelry, personalized clutches or robes, and monograms. Take it to the next level by adding a personal note or custom illustration of your wedding party to the ceremony programs.
The wedding ceremony is the most important part of the day, and a moment where getting personal is easiest. Print your vows on custom-made books that will double as keepsakes after the big day. And don’t forget to think outside the box when it comes to decor. Why not create custom bouquets for bridesmaids?
Your reception should be a celebration of your relationship. Place it front and center with customized menus, unique wedding cake toppers, and monogrammed table settings. We also love the idea of using photo booth props that allow your guests to express their congratulations or leave a personal message.
