5 Creative Ways To Put More “YOU” Into Your Wedding


Let the planning begin!! Here are a few tips to put a little “YOU” into your wedding.


1. Table Names

A great way to make your tables stand out from the rest is to change the traditional table numbers to something that is uniquely yours. For example, are you a fan of reading, use your favorite book titles and/or authors. Or, if you both like to travel, how about the different places you’ve been too? Are you a wine lover, use the many different types of wines.

Or, how about these for the book lover…


2. Shoes

Nowadays, it’s all about the shoes! And, what a fabulous way to change it up. Your shoes could be you’re wedding colors instead of matching the white/ivory of your dress. For example, if your favorite color is purple & you’re wedding colors happen to be plum or eggplant, than picture a pair of gorgeous purple shoes peaking out from under your pretty dress!


Thanks to my friends over at Black Thumb Studio for the picture of my pretty shoes.


Need your ‘something blue’ that everyone can see. Check out this stunning image from Milton Gil Photography. {FYI…there is music on this website, so turn your volume down if your at work.}


I couldn’t resist this one from Niki Rossi Photography. I LOVE the different colored shoes and the flowers matching them!


If heels aren’t your thing, wear sneakers, flip flops or even cowboy boots! The sky is the limit!

3. Centerpieces

Flowers are definitely the most popular centerpieces, but if you don’t want flowers to be the main focus of the table, add something that you both love. Going back to the suggestion of book titles/authors being your table names, you could have old books as your centerpiece with candles/tea lights surrounding them. To add a little more flair, you could add a couple of bud vases {tall or short} in between the candles/tea lights.

If you’re a sports fan, especially a Boston one, use some memorabilia from any of the 4 Boston teams! Check out this one from Marrero Events for our Boston Red Sox!


4. Music

Music is certainly a great way to personalize your wedding and not just with your ceremony or first dance. When you’re being introduced into your reception for the first time, have something that represents you both. For example, one of my clients’ families both came from New York, the bride’s grandmother was a huge Sinatra fan, so to pay tribute to both their backgrounds and her grandmother, they entered into the reception with “New York, New York” by Frank Sinatra. Are you huge Patriots fan? “Carmina Burana” by Carl Orff would be right up your alley!


5. Signature Cocktail or Coffee Blend

Last, and definitely not the least, is to have a signature cocktail or coffee blend designed specifically for you’re wedding day. For your signature cocktail, take you’re wedding colors, a favorite or seasonal drink that flows or resembles your overall theme.


Thanks to Daisies & Pearls Merry Making for this great idea.


If you’re not a cocktail kind of person, but love coffee or tea, create a coffee or tea blend {yes, there is a place that does just that…The Cozy Tea Cart!} that is uniquely yours.


I hope these tips gave you some inspiration on how to add a little more “YOU” into you’re wedding.
