With thousands and thousands of weddings taking place every week, you might wonder how yours will stand out from the rest to be a special occasion that your guests will remember. Read on for some advice from our memorymakers to personalize your wedding day and truly make it your own!
The Name Game
One of the easiest ways to make your ceremony and reception feel much more personalized is to incorporate your names or initials into your wedding day decor! We love how this couple personalized the bar at their reception by using block letters to spell their names.

Creative Cake Toppers
Looking to draw some “Oohs” and “Ahhs” when your guests see your wedding cake? Get creative with your cake toppers for a playful take on the traditional cake! You can incorporate playful elements like this couple did by using animals to represent the bride and groom. You can also use your initials as a personalized cake topper. For inspiration, turn to sites like Pinterest and Etsy and see how other couples have made their wedding cakes super special!

Incorporating Your History
One of the best ways to personalize your big day is to find a creative way to tell your story. This couple at The Ryland Inn chose to display this adorable map of where they are from and where they where getting married, which adds intrigue and gives guests something to chat about. We’ve also seen couples serve customized groom’s cakes, which is a fun way to show off the groom’s hobbies and interests (and plus, who doesn’t love a second choice of cake)!

Traditionally, name cards are meant to direct guests to the table they should sit at during the reception. But this couple got crafty with their cards and incorporated Polaroid pictures of themselves strung across twine for guests to see! You can also display photos of you and your spouse-to-be on a vintage tabletop, or even hung from a tree at an outdoor reception. Some couples even choose to add some photos to their wedding cake for the ultimate personalized treat!
