So, you’re getting married or planning your wedding. Congratulations! If you’re like most brides or grooms-to-be, it’s likely that you’re thinking about ways you can make your wedding both unique and memorable.
One way to do that is by adding small touches that will surprise your guests and even your spouse-to-be. For a few ideas to get you brainstorming about small touches that will make your wedding one to remember, read on.
1. Custom Guest Book Momentos
It’s unlikely that you and your partner will forget your special day. But what about your guests? If you’re a bride or groom looking to be sure your wedding is one your friends and family will never forget, consider creating a custom wedding guest book with Mixbook.
At Mixbook, you’ll be able to choose from a variety of templates and backgrounds to make a piece of art that shows off your and your partner’s personality and love story.
Whether you give this to guests as a wedding favor or encourage them to take pictures during your ceremony to upload and mail out later, creating this beautiful book and distributing it to guests is a great way to make everyone in your life feel included in this big milestone.
2. Being Uniquely You
Your wedding will be even better if you find ways to add tiny touches of your and your partner’s personalities into your theme, design, custom album, and more. While it’s easier and can be tempting to play it safe and stick with tradition, consider finding smaller ways to add personalization to your wedding decor and overall plans.
For example, if you’ll be having a beach wedding, why not spend some time painting beach rocks or shells that you can hand out to your guests as a token of your special day? Anything handmade will go a long way in showing your guests how important your relationship and big day are to you. Maybe you’ll be using daisies as your wedding flower.
Creating custom “loves me” magnets, stickers, or coffee mugs to incorporate into your decor could be a great way to give a wink to your whimsical personality while sticking with a theme.
When considering smaller, handmade details, don’t forget to ask your partner about things that best represent them, too. A marriage is a union, so it’s important to represent both people and their families equally.
3. The Element of Surprise
Most people love a good surprise. At a minimum, they remember them. If you’re adventurous, why not plan a surprise even your future spouse doesn’t know about? Something like arriving uniquely, ordering a firework show display, or even making a surprise announcement can be a fantastic way to make your wedding even better.
Your surprise could be as simple as finding a way to incorporate a family pet into your ceremony without telling your friends and family.
Or, it could be bigger and be used as part of the theme for the wedding itself. You could even have guests guess ahead of time what that surprise might be and use this in pre-wedding events and celebrations.
Planning to add custom guest books, your own personality, and the element of surprise to your special day is a fantastic way to have fun planning and ensure a lifetime of fond memories.
As you go about creating your custom wedding book and dreaming up ways to keep your guests entertained, make sure to take pictures along the way.
These moments in the planning process could make their way into your custom wedding albums, too. Best of luck to you as you plan your perfect wedding, and congratulations on your special day!
