7 things you could customise for your wedding
The modern-day wedding is all about putting your own stamp on the celebrations. Handmade favours, personalised playlists, table themes that are linked to your favourite destination…
There are countless ways to personalise your wedding. But what about ways you could customise it?
This week, I’ve had all the fun trawling the internet for things you can customise for your wedding, whether it be for favours, keepsakes or just for fun. Here are 7 of the most inspiring ideas…
1. All abroad
Send it to them after they RSVP (so they can hang it off their bag en route). Or leave it at their table come the big day for the journey home. Either way, these tags are a fantastic keepsake they’ll have to remember your special day.
2. Top Trumps for the top table
A nostalgic keepsake, customised Top Trump cards are a great way to introduce different wedding guests to each other. With space for 30 people, they’d make great keepsake for your top table, or close family and friends on both sides. Why not give them out at the rehearsal dinner or at the wedding breakfast after the big day?
3. Wine with a twist
A personal touch that everyone can enjoy on your wedding day are these customisable wine labels.
And as a fun keepsake, you can also customise your water bottle labels. These will be especially great for outdoorsy celebrations, like a music-themed or woodland-themed wedding. And perfect if you’re going to a festival or gig for the hen/stag party.
4. Personalise your wedding postage
These are really cool – personalised UK postage stamps for when you send out your save the dates and/or wedding invitations.
It’s the attention to detail that counts. And these stamps are sure to make your guests smile (if they notice, that is).
5. Happy feet
I know from a lot of my friends’ weddings, the first thing the bride wants to do after the ceremony is take her shoes off! And, judging by the way my partner reacts to wearing his dress shoes for a couple of hours, I”m guessing it’s the same for the groom too.
So why not design your own pair of unisex Converse trainers for the evening do? They’ll be comfy to dance in and custom-made for you and your new husband or wife.
6. His & hers
My friends James and Lizzy embroidered their new initials and the date of their wedding inside their wedding-day outfits. And because Lizzy’s monogram was done in blue, it counted as her ‘something blue’.
This is a really special, personal touch and only advisable if you plan on keeping your wedding dress and suit jacket. If you plan to sell your wedding dress afterwards, skip this option. But if not, try it yourself or get in touch with your local tailor and see if they can do it.
7. Wedding team scarves and beanies
Design a bunch of scarves specifically for your hen/stag do. Or customise with your new married names as a not-your-usual wedding favour.
If you’re into scarves but not football, these custom printed scarves would make great wedding favours for female guests, or special ‘thank-you’ gifts for bridesmaids and mothers in law. And if you’re having a winter wedding, they’d be a nice nod to the theme too.
And there we go – stuff you (probably) didn’t know you could customise for your wedding.
