One of our favorite parts of the wedding planning process is helping our couples creatively incorporate personalizations into their wedding designs. We’ve got a list of ideas for you while also revisiting one of our favorite former weddings that topped the chart as a peachy-perfect, one-of-a-kind wedding.
Hold on to your hat as we talk you through an impressive tour of Marjie and Tray’s peach-inspired wedding, held at her family’s multi-generation peach packing shed in Musella, Georgia.
Choosing a theme that reflects you and your partner is the first step to making your big day unique. Incorporating colors and decor that fit this overall look will help tie everything together on wedding day.
For example: if one of your favorite activities is visiting breweries, why not incorporate unique beer tastings through a custom beer bar experience? Or perhaps both families love playing board games together; consider having games available for guests to play at cocktail hour or an after party.
For Marjie and Tray, we started their guest experience with a save the date featuring a hand drawn illustration of her family’s peach packing shed, which is a landmark in Middle Georgia and creates a connection to the location for the reception.
A logo is the perfect way to personalize your wedding. It can be used on invitations and other paper goods, through custom stage or dance floor designs, or even as an icon on guest favors. A custom logo helps your guests know they’re in for a thoughtful experience, from start to finish.
To create a great one:
Make sure it reflects who you are as a couple. Is there something specific about your relationship or personality that makes it unique? Do you bond over a certain hobby? Did a special location play a big role in your love story? Do you love your dog like a person and want it incorporated into the day? If so, bring those sentiments into the design!
Once you’ve created your custom logo or monogram, consider strategic opportunities to pull the design into different stages of the guest experience.
For Marjie and Tray’s wedding, it’s no surprise that peaches were our common theme throughout the design. And we made sure to include them in creative ways from start to finish, which included: peach stamps on invitations, fresh peach slices on the signature drinks, peach ice cream during cocktail hour, dance floor favors that included peach headbands, peach stickers on the hotel welcome gifts, whole peaches in the floral centerpieces, and peach fritters as a late night snack.
You can personalize your food and drink by creating a menu that reflects your personalities. If you’re both big fans of spicy food, for example, consider making it a point to include at least one dish with some kick on the menu. Or if one of you loves seafood while the other prefers meatier options, try mixing things up with an appetizer or two from each category.
Favors are a great way to make your guests feel special and appreciated. They’re also a fun way to get creative with your theme, especially if you’re going for something more personalized. If you’re thinking about an edible treat or something else that speaks to your personality, guests will appreciate the extra effort you put into creating something unique.
So there you have it! The possibilities are endless when it comes to customizing a wedding to make it feel unique, personalized, and thoughtful. Hopefully you now have some ideas for how to make your wedding day “uniquely yours.”
