10 Personalized Elements to Make Your Second Wedding a Stand Out


Ready to retake the plunge? Before sending out the printed personal envelopes containing your wedding invitations, you need to start planning your wedding. Do not just go with the usual traditional wedding norms. Try to personalize your wedding and steer away from what you had done in the past. Here are some elements of the wedding that you can customize.

Wedding Invites

Most people design a beautiful wedding invite, put them in printed personal envelops and give them to their guests. Instead of going with a wedding invite template, you can write personalized invites to your close guests. Make sure that the customized notes end up in the correctly addressed printed personal envelopes.

Walk Down the Aisle

Giving the bride away is a tradition that might have sentimental value today, but it stems from a regressive practice. Choose a song that is special to you, and walk down the aisle with your partner, together as equals.

Vows & Rings

Do away with the traditional vows for the unimaginative souls. You and your partner should write down your vows and put them in printed personal envelopes. No traditional vows can embody the feelings that you can vocalize though your custom vows.

Choosing rings is a significant investment. Simple rings can be the best for daily wear. You can also design your own or each other’s rings and have a jeweler make them for you. Have your jeweler engrave the name of your partner inside the ring.

First Dance & Music

Do away with the usual romantic billboard topper songs as your first wedding song. Find a song that embodies your relationship. It can even be something as cheesy Baha Men’s- Who Let the Dogs Out. Forget well-choreographed ballroom fit dances, just cut loose with your partner for your first dance.

Whether you hire a DJ or a wedding band, you should have a list of songs prepared. Give the DJ or band the list of sons that you love well in advance so that they can come prepared with the songs.

Cake & Food

You do not have to get the usual white cake with floral decorations. Ask your baker to show you various designs and try out whacky flavors before deciding on a unique cake. You can even show pictures of your wedding clothes and get customized cake toppers that look like you.

Serve the food that you love at your wedding. You do not have to go for a pretentious, gourmet line up of dishes. The food at your wedding should have dishes that you both love to eat, even if it means serving Pizza.

Decoration

There are many customized elements that you can add to the décor of your wedding. From the backdrop of the altar to the monogrammed napkins, you can add your personal flair everywhere.

Something for the Guests

Once your wedding is over do not let your guests leave simply with memories. Give them something to remember the wedding by. You can either choose to give them a small token of appreciation, seedlings or seeds being a popular token gift. You can also have handwritten note neatly sealed in printed personal envelopes.

Make your wedding memorable by doing what you both love, instead of being pressurized to follow the traditional path.
