How to add your Style & Personality into your Wedding Day!

Doing Things Differently!

There are so many ways to creatively incorporate fun elements that are a reflection of who you are as a couple into the wedding day. Have some fun dreaming and coming up with ideas, then do it! Your guests will appreciate the personal, fun side they get to know and experience. The overall experience of the wedding and reception is a reflection of you and your fiance, but often times people can get caught up in doing something a certain way “just because that’s how it’s done”, instead of taking that opportunity to do something new and creative.


Here are some pointers that may help in doing something different with favors/ gifts for your guests.

A few questions to ask:

  • When should we do the favors? At the wedding? At the reception? Both?

  • Do we love something or are known for something in our family/group of friends? (sports, traveling, favorite food, etc.)

  • What is unique about us as a couple? (where you are from, how you met, where you work, etc.)

  • What’s our budget?


Don’t feel like you need to fall into doing a cake that people will expect if you want to do something nontraditional.

A few questions to ask:

  • Is there a design or style that you love?

  • Is there are local baker or cake-maker that can work with you?

  • Or is there a local or national specialty cupcake or sweet shop that you would like use for your reception?

Music choice

Trust your wedding DJ and work together to create the reception vibe you want. If you love a certain style of music or artist, then feel free to add that into the night. When you are having fun, others will notice and  join in the fun too!


Let’s talk about the program, which is usually handed out at the wedding. The program includes the cast of characters and a ceremony agenda. This can be done in a million different ways or maybe even not done at all. If you choose to do a program, it can be as simple as a handwritten note for smaller weddings or it can be a grand piece of art that goes with the overall theme of the wedding.

At every step in the planning process, you have an opportunity to do things a little differently if you’d like. Don’t worry about fitting into a mold or following tradition. Bringing your personality and sense of style into your wedding and reception will add a sense of whimsy and charm to your day.
