Cookie cutter weddings are probably every bride’s worst fear. Each bride is unique and so it only stands to reason that every wedding should be as well.
With this train of thought in mind, more couples are choosing to infuse their wedding with elements that speak to their creativity and personalities.

Design your own logo or monogram. This is a very simple and affordable way to get a custom look while completely personalizing so many aspects of your wedding. Choose your favorite font and colors, then use the logo throughout your wedding — from the invitations to the programs to the menus to your thank-you notes.
Customize your menu. Infuse foods from your travels, your favorite restaurants, or family recipes into your event. Many chefs or caterers will work with you to devise a meal that really captures the cuisine you want, especially if you give them enough lead-time.
Take advantage of the timing.
If you’re getting married around a holiday that’s meaningful to you, create customized place cards as your favors and infuse some of the celebration into this detail. For example, if your wedding is near Christmas, think about personalized Christmas ornaments that will give your guests a memory of your wedding that they’ll enjoy for years to come.
While photo booth props are very popular right now, many couples focus on those details and miss customizing the booth itself.
Use personal photos to dress up the booth’s exterior, or find a company like The Photo Bank, which will wrap the booth with a large photo of your choice for an even more custom look.
Adding personal touches to your wedding day is what will make it truly special for you and your guests, so have fun sharing some of your favorite things and don’t be afraid to be yourself!
