Real Bride Stories
There’s a lot to be said for a personal touch at your wedding. Adding something all your own goes a long way on your special day, and guests will love that you went the extra mile. Whether you’re artsy, a wordsmith, a baker, or still figuring it out, read on for some do-it-yourself inspiration to use on your big day.
The Missing Piece
Rather than the traditional guest book, switch things up a bit and try a blank puzzle template in a fun shape (think a heart or a star). Each guest can write a message on a puzzle piece, and you can enjoy putting the puzzle together afterwards. If you frame it for display, the warm wishes will be there long after the last dance.
Brainstorm a list of all the places you and your significant other have been to together. Then use all the locations to create your table names. It’s a fun twist on the usual table numbers, and makes for a great conversation point for your guests.
Take a Seat
If you’re looking for cute and budget friendly ways to display seating cards, start collecting corkscrews, sea glass, leaves, or rocks in the months leading up to your wedding. Put a slit down the middle of the corkscrew and you’ve got yourself a steady card holder. Grab a few metallic pens and use your best calligraphy skills to emblazon the glass or rocks with your table names. A simple way to take your décor up a notch!
What’s In A Name?
Specialty drinks and custom cocktails have become a popular addition to wedding bars. Take it a step further and think of a name to personalize your special creation. Consider a play on the bride’s name, the wedding location, the season, or anything that might fit the occasion!
It’s In The Bag
Walking back down the aisle will feel extra celebratory with a little something thrown into the mix. Create confetti or flower petal toss bags to put on the seats for your ceremony. When you’re striding out after saying your I Do’s your guests can sprinkle you with a bit of extra joy!
