Personal Touches to Make Your Day Special
2 May 2017
We love hearing how our Knot brides are personalising their weddings and making them meaningful. The days of having to wear waistcoats and have a welcome line are long gone with more and more couples opting for handmade touches that really reflect their partnership and turning away from tradition.
Here are five of our favourite personal touches we’ve heard in the past month, we love them all!
Personalised Wedding Reading
Instead of a traditional reading, why not consider approaching a friend and asking them to either choose a wedding reading that is most fitting to you or maybe even to write a reading, making it even more unique and personal.
Memory Name Cards
Where the place names are on the table at the reception, why not put a little memory beneath the name or on the back? An individual memory you have of everyone who attended the wedding, a little reminder of why every single guest is special to you.
When sending your invites off, ask your guests for a song that they would like played at the reception. Perhaps even a song that means something in their relationship. You can guarantee a packed dancefloor and a whole lot of love and memories!
Welcome Packs for the Kids
There is nothing more mundane for children than weddings, especially long speeches! Why not put together little packs for the kids with colouring in books, activities, bubbles and even mini crowns and tiaras!
Bedroom Welcome Notes
One of our favourites, if you are having your wedding reception in a hotel, why not leave a personalised welcome note in the room of any guests who are staying? Thank them for attending, tell them all of the need-to-know details and perhaps include the story of how you both met and fell in love or what their relationship means to you. It will be a lovely surprise when they arrive in their room!
We love the personalised wedding ideas and keep an eye out to see what our brides are doing that’s a little different. What little things do you have planned to add a personal twist to your wedding?
