How to Put Your Personality Into Your Wedding Day


bridal-636018_1280

In a world of convenience, and wedding packages hosted by venues that do all the hard work so you don’t have to, it can be easy to lose any personality in your wedding day. After all, your big day is about you and your partner and therefore should reflect this – so here’s how to put personality back into your wedding day plans and ensure your day is a reflection of you and your partner’s favourite things.

1. Choose a theme
Are you and your partner keen cyclists? Do you share a love for a certain book or film? Are you quite big geeks? Then why not pick a theme that reflects your hobbies and interests? Not only is it a fun thing to plan it will also ensure your guests know exactly whose wedding they are attending. If you love Lord of the Rings, have the tables named after locations in the series or if you’re huge Doctor Who fans why not feature the classic police telephone box in your décor, such as subtly on napkins or in terrariums on the table instead of floral arrangements?

2. Choose your wedding rings while together
Wedding rings and memories are the two main thing you’ll take away from your wedding day, to look back upon fondly and remember how special the whole event was. Rings that subtly match and are picked by you and your partner while together are a great way of putting your personality into your ceremony – head to a site such as 77Diamonds to find the perfect ones for you.

3. Serve food you love
Many people opt for the dull, three course roast dinner or chicken in a white sauce dishes when it comes to their wedding. However, (depending on your venue) you can hire caterers who will come in and cook your favourite food for you and your guests to enjoy. From classic fish and chips served up freshly on the day to huge pans of paella that feed hundreds, there’s so much choice out there and choosing food you and your partner are particularly fond of can really help put your personality into your big day.

4. Feature some wedding traditions
Wedding traditions have died out over the years but it might be a nice touch to introduce some to your big day to add that personal touch. Traditions that are unique to you and your partner’s cultures and history are romantic and will help your families feel like a part of the day. For example, in Italian tradition the bride and groom’s first dance consists of them being wrapped up together in tissue paper by their families, while some people are also returning to the more traditional groomsmen and bridesmaids pairings in the wedding party.

Your wedding day is about you and your partner, so don’t let anyone else influence your decisions when it comes to injecting some personality into the day itself. It needs to feel special to you and work as a day that you can look back on with fond memories, so throw those Marvel figurines onto your wedding cake as toppers or theme your tables with character names from Harry Potter. It’s up to you to incorporate your personality into your wedding.
