2. Wedding Timeline
Let’s face it. We’ve all been to a wedding where we really had no idea how the whole day was going to pan out. This can be not only confusing but frustrating, especially if you have to attend the wedding late. One way that you can end all confusion is by incorporating Wedding Day Timelines on your big day. You can place these at each seat or have a sign present at the ceremony entrance or during the cocktail reception. Not to mention these make an adorable addition to anyone’s day. Check out some different wedding timelines here.
3. Name Place Cards
To most this is not a new concept, but a new trend has transformed with the use of laser cut name cards. These are a sweet addition and can transform a table from good to great. While this can be a costly addition to each plate depending upon how many guests you have, you can always incorporate these into your bridal parties’ tables. Not only will you still be able to include this on your big day, you will also be cutting costs. Check out this Etsy shop that makes custom laser cut name place cards here.
4. Table Numbers
Table numbers are a great way to get creative. You can incorporate your wedding theme by using custom cards or go with a laser cut sign. Be sure to research if your wedding invite vendor can also create custom table numbers, this is the best way to match your invites and pull in your theme.
5. Aisle Runner
A customize aisle runner will not only grab the attention of your guests but it will also personalize your ceremony space. Whether you decide to rent an aisle runner or do a DIY project to add detail to one, this addition will add something special to your day. You can view some custom aisle runner ideas here.
6. Bridal Party Table
Adding lots of flowers or table décor can get expensive. One sure way to get your guests attention and draw them to your table is by sticking to a basic table décor for your guests and incorporating more detail into your bridal party table. Add more extravagant flowers or greenery, candle sticks, or use a rustic wood table. The possibilities are limitless but changing up the Bridal Party Table can draw a lot of eyes.
Lighting is a superb way of setting the mood. Are you going for a fancy look? Add a Chandelier. Going for something more romantic? Try candle sticks and/or lanterns. Talk with your florist, venue and event planner about the different options that are available to you. These small changes can transform the atmosphere of the room.
8. Desert Table
One of the best parts at every wedding is food, booze and dessert, am I right? One way to add a sure crowd pleaser is a desert table. You can incorporate a doughnut wall, use an antique dresser and dress it up with greenery and different leveled desert dishware, or even incorporate a flower wall as a backdrop! These sweet additions will go a long way.
An Altar is a sure way to add a touch of elegance to your ceremony. Try adding a chandelier, an iron ring wrapped in greenery, or drapes accented with floral. The possibilities are endless! Check out this board on Pinterest to help the creative juices get flowing.
10. Cake Topper
The traditional bride and groom cake toppers are so last year! (Only kidding, they are so 1980s). Ditch the traditional topper and go with an accent piece that compliments your theme. Going for a romantic feel? Top it off with florals and greenery. Going for more of a rustic theme? Try greenery and a handmade Mr. and Mrs. “X” topper to complete the look.
11. Wine Labels
There’s nothing sweeter than personalizing every detail down to nitty gritty. Include a bottle of wine on each of your guests tables for a special touch. Check out these personalized wine bottle labels on Etsy.
12. Ditch the Favors
Favors are expensive and let’s be honest some people may never touch your gift again. Instead, try personalizing napkins with Fun Facts about you and your S.O.. These are a fun way for guests to learn more about you and celebrate you both as a couple.
Hire an artist who will live paint your ceremony. This is a one of a kind gift that you will treasure for life!
You can personalize your wedding down to the nitty gritty. Try incorporating these adorable forks into your big day. Make sure you don’t forget them at the end of the night! Check out these adorable add ons here.
