THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX
Sometimes what really makes a wedding unique to a couple is when you think outside the box. Just because it is the “traditional” way doesn’t mean it’s right for you. If you don’t like the idea of having cake at your wedding, don't have one! Find a different sweet like chocolate covered strawberries and it will make the moment even more memorable. Another way to set your Wedding a part is to repurpose. Think of all the elements you may need to include for functionality purposes of your Wedding and find a way to add in your personality. For example, one of our couples LOVED finding vintage items. Instead of folded escort cards, we tied names to old bud vases which each guest got to bring home (doubles as a favor). Not only that, as each guest brough their vase to the table, the centerpieces doubled in size adding to the design of the tablescapes.
INCORPORATE YOUR INTERESTS
Is there something you and your fiancé really love together? Lean on these as inspiration to find ways to represent you during the celebration. During cocktail hour, have a favorite game out for guests to play! Is there a movie or song you absolutely love? Include a quote or lyrics on your menu stationery. This brings in more of something your personality while sparking conversation between your guests!
SIGNATURE COCKTAILS AND FOOD
This is always a fun way to add that something extra to the party. Whether you mix your own signature cocktail recipe or choose a cocktail that represents a special memory, it's great way to put your personal touch on the bar (while maybe even educating your guests!) When it comes to food, incorporating menu items and flavors that are special to you two can really add some sparkle. Was your first date at a Mexican restaurant? Add a taco bar!
SHARE MEANINGFUL TRADITIONS AND SPECIAL MOMENTS
You might have a particular tradition or a meaningful moment that is prominent in your life. Whether it’s a specific wedding tradition done for generations before you, a signature song played at every family gathering, or a time or place that felt special to you, it’s wonderful any time you can reminisce on past memories. For example, one of our clients incorporated a log cutting Ceremony from the Grooms German culture!
