The pressure for couples to have a unique, one of a kind wedding can frustrate even the most chilled out brides and grooms. While it may seem impossible to find a truly original wedding idea, there are still many ways you can personalize key elements of your special day. Here are a few simple ways to add a personal touch to your wedding day:
Transform an otherwise boring yet practical element of your reception décor by personalising your table numbers. Fun options include grouping each table as a destination you have both visited together that holds a special meaning to you; eg, table number 1 = Your first holiday together, table number 2 = Your first date location, table number 3 = your honeymoon destination. It’s a great way to spark discussion among your guests and adds a personal touch to your reception.
Sugared almonds can seem a little generic as favours, so break free from tradition and choose favours that reflect you as a couple. It could be miniature bottles of your favourite wine, scented candles that remind you of your favourite vacations, or even homemade treats that you made together. Personalised favours are a great way to leave a lasting impression on your guests once the wedding is over.
Bespoke wedding bands
A great way to celebrate your engagement is to share the unforgettable experience of designing your wedding bands together. Artisanal jeweller, Michael Fallah (also known as Mick the jeweller), gives couples the opportunity to visit his workshop in Sydney to watch him melt down the yellow, rose or white gold he will be using for their wedding rings in person. It’s a great chance for couples to bring in their wedding photographer or videographer to capture the once in a lifetime experience to include in their wedding album and video.
Arrange with your caterer to incorporate a family dish or signature drink into the reception and then give out the recipe along with your favours. A great way to involve your family is to use your bridal shower as an opportunity to request dessert recipes from your relatives and surprise them at the reception with a dessert buffet featuring their delicious recipes.
Create a simple, but unique hashtag that makes it easy for your guests to upload any photos they take on the day. It’s a nice way to encourage guests to share their favourite photos, while also making it easy for you to track down all the photos. Make sure to include information about the #hashtag and any social media requests with invitations and programs so that you’re guests are aware.
Planning a winter wedding? The snowy season can add a certain atmospheric charm to your nuptials. While most people equate a cold and wet wedding with a nightmare, just think of a warm and cosy ceremony and even cosier wedding night by an open fire. Here are a few of the hottest winter wedding dresses this season.
The princess dress
A lot of people imagine a princess dress to be the Disney kind with a big full skirt and a sweetheart neckline. However, the real princess – like the Duchess of Cambridge, or Princess Grace of Monaco – tend to opt for the conservative, and elegant sleeved gown. Take a look at the following by Rosa Clara.
The sweater dress
Thanks to Olivia Palermo, the sweater dress is all of a sudden a big thing. Two-pieces also dominated the catwalk in the fall 2015 bridal fashion week. So why not walk down this aisle in a skirt and sweater this winter?
The wedding coats and capes
You can wear whatever you want underneath, but for those outdoor photos you will need something to keep your back, chest and shoulders warm! Try a long and elegant coat, a cute shrug, or a fairytale cape.
