"We wanted very casual invitations and these were perfect!"
There are more than 6,000 weddings per day in the United States, so it may feel nearly impossible to have something totally unique and personal. However, by incorporating some of these ideas into your ceremony or reception, you will create something more memorable for yourself, your partner and your guests.
Nearly everybody has a Facebook, Twitter or Instagram account these days, and each of these platforms uses hashtags. If your guests will be able to take photos with their phones and upload to social media, ask them to use a customized hashtag so everybody who knows the happy couple can easily find the pictures.
Is your reception going to be kid-friendly? You’ll thank yourself—and parents will thank you as well—if you provide a way to keep the kids entertained. Try creating a coloring book, storybook or other kid-friendly activity that tells the story of how you and your partner met and decided to get married.
Go old school and create a mix CD to give as wedding favors, or if you prefer, just create a mix on your favorite digital service and tell guests how to find it. Be sure to include all of your most important songs from the wedding as well as the couple’s overall favorites and a few top tracks from the year you got married.
Commission someone to create a custom topper for the cake. It can be your names, your new last name, initials or even personalized characters made to look like you and your spouse. You may even get a laugh if you include something funny in the design that reminds people of your love. Shutterfly provides a wide range of monogram wedding invitations and wedding annoucements that allow you to display your initials or your new married name. This is a great way to customize your wedding from the very first interaction you have with your guests.
