Personalising parts of your wedding is a great way to stamp your identity on the day and ensure it stands out from the crowd. As @wimagazine says, “With many traditional wedding elements limiting the way you can express yourself, the personality-filled touches best come out in all those little details” While these little details may not seem important at first, adding a bespoke touch to your stationery, favours and other extras will have a big impact on how visitors experience the day.
The COVID-19 pandemic forced a lot of the couples planning to marry in 2020 to postpone their nuptials. As a result, the 2021 wedding calendar is already looking pretty busy, with venues, caterers, photographers and florists likely to be booked solid for the entire season. This means it’s more important than ever to make your wedding day stand out, and as personalisation is a key part of this, expect to see a lot of bespoke touches in the coming year.
Favours have long been a popular choice for couples who want to show their guests just how much they’re appreciated. With weddings likely to take on an even deeper significance when they’re allowed to resume following lockdown, this is a great place to start your personalisation. Use your favours to thank your friends and family for being there on your big day. You could bake thank you cookies for your guests or create special ‘thank you’ labels for the jams, gins or homemade sweets you’re handing out to your friends and family.
There’s a good chance that some of your guests will feel more comfortable wearing face masks at your 2021 wedding. To help ensure they feel welcome, and keep friends and family safe on your big day, you could invest in a bulk order of personalised masks. If you’re handy with a sewing machine, make the masks yourself out of bright, colourful fabric. Alternatively, get in touch with a local supplier to find out how they can add a bespoke touch to your facemask design.
Thank you cards
It’s always a good idea to send out thank you cards after your big day. While this might seem like extra admin you could do without, it’s a gesture that’s often deeply appreciated by friends and family. A great way to personalise your thank you cards is to add a photo of the recipient. Print off the best photo of the couple or family you can find and clip it to your card to remind them just how much fun they had on your big day.
