1. Give Your Table Settings Some Love

This one will take time and dedication (unless you pay someone else to do it), but the rewards are well worth the effort.

Instead of place cards, hand stitch your guest’s names on to cloth napkins using embroidery thread to illustrate where you’d like them to sit at dinner.

These unique table settings double up as favours, too!

2. Label Everything!

You can personalise just about anything at your wedding with a little imagination and a few printer labels.

Disguise wine stickers with a sweet tag that includes your names and the date of your nuptials. Or wrap personalised wrappers around  packets of sweets and gift to guests as favours.

3. Wear Your Heart On Your Finger

Aww, we're getting sentimental! Since your union is the main point of the day, it’s only right that you personalise the symbols of your vows. Yep, we’re talking about  the wedding rings.

Once you’ve picked out your perfect wedding rings, ask your jeweller to engrave the inside of the band with your names, the date you met and married, or anything else you fancy.

4. Create Bespoke Cocktails

If we had to pick a favourite personalised element, it would obviously have to be the cocktails.

Work with the venue to design a bespoke cocktail from your favourite flavours, and name it something that holds meaning for you and your partner.

The only other thing to do is to source  fun or fancy glasses before you get going on the cocktails.

5. Let Balloons Raise Your Spirits

Balloons these days are much more chic than childish, and  beautiful alphabet ones can add a touch of glamour – while also giving that personalised edge to the celebrations.

Spell out your new joint-surname, just have your initials or use them to indicate where the bar is.

Whatever you decide, they’re sure to be a popular addition to your wedding decorations.

6. Make Your Guestbook More Fun

Instead of opting for the expected guest book, why not try something a little
more unique to you as a couple?

This Jenga idea is simple, inexpensive and is  great fun to keep after the celebrations have ended.

Ask your friends and family to write a piece of advice onto each brick for you both using a permanent marker  and you’ll be reminded of their wise words every time you play.

7. Weave Romance In Everywhere

For a really romantic table setting idea, why not create a runner from the  classic love stories that you and your new partner think are the most iconic?

This can be tailored to suit you both, so you could swap it for modern books, or maybe even write out your own love story!

Whatever you choose we bet one thing, your guests won’t have seen anything like it before.

8. Make Your Own Wedding Games

A fun way to keep little (and big) guests happy during dinner is to provide a little light-hearted entertainment.  Plus,  wedding games are the perfect way to get personal, too.

Why not design a quiz for all your guests to do in between courses and offer prizes for the most correct answers? Or have sheets of paper for them to fill out with facts about you that you can keep as special mementos.

9. Dream Up a Date Jar

Once you’ve come down from that wedding high, it’s nice to have other things to look forward to in your first few months of marriage.

To help you on your way, ask friends and relatives at your wedding to suggest date nights for you to do together.

That way you'll have ideas you might not have thought of and all it takes is a few scraps of paper and a pretty mason jar.

10. Make Your Menu More Exciting

Your menu might not be the first thing you think about personalising when it comes to your wedding, but it’s the small touches that add up to make a big impact. 

Personalising your menu can mean anything from simply picking the colour of the ink it’s printed in, or going all out and dreaming up inventive names for each course that mean something to you as a couple.

For inspiration, think of the place you first met, where you first said 'I love you', or what you were doing when you got engaged.

11. Create the Coolest Confetti

It wouldn’t be a wedding without a bit of confetti, would it? Make yours extra special by tailoring the container it’s held in or the confetti itself.

Small stickers with your names, the date and a little rhyme about when to throw it, work wonderfully and give the moment a really special personal touch.

Another idea is to personalise the confetti itself, printing your names or initials onto individual pieces for your guests to marvel over.
