If you’re in the process of planning your wedding, like many couples, you’re probably keen to add your personality to it. Doing this gives your day oodles of charm and distinguishes it from the rest, making your wedding day distinctly unique to you! Therefore, with this in mind, this blog post is dedicated to sharing 10 styling tips to help you add tons of personality to your wedding day.
1. Choose a theme you both love
Giving your wedding day a ‘theme’ is the perfect way to inject your personality into it. Whether you go all out with a Star Wars theme, or nod to your penchant for a bygone era with a rustic, vintage theme, decide on something you share a passion for and watch your wedding day vision come to life.
2. Get on board with backdrops and draping
Whether you want to make a statement at the top table or add a focal point to your ceremony, drapings and backdrops are a great way to achieve this. With endless options available, it’s easy to add your personality to your wedding. Fairy lit backdrops are ideal for adding a touch of romance, while drama can be found in ceiling and circular drapes.
3. Say it with favours
Long gone are the days of sugared almond wedding favours, as couples choose to get creative with their choice of wedding favours. Wedding favours are a fab way to leave guests with a lasting impression of your wedding day, so give them something they’ll remember. From personalised playlists, so monogrammed miniature drinks, consider your wedding day theme and how you can convey it through your choice of wedding favours.
4. Add a focal point with centerpieces
Guests spend the majority of a wedding reception seated around tables, so use the opportunity to bring your wedding theme to life. Whether glamorous, rustic, elegant, classic or romantic, choose a centrepiece which conveys your wedding day style.
5. Create a photo booth corner
Unsurprisingly, your goal will be to ensure that both you and guests have a night to remember. One trend which is on the rise is the photo booth, but not as you probably think. Long gone are the days of boxy, cramped booths. Nowadays, it’s all about chic, open style booths. A great way to add a unique spin is to create bespoke props which convey your personality. Whether it’s a bespoke Instagram frame with your wedding hashtag and date, or props which showcase your favourite movies, get creative and embrace your chosen theme.
6. Make sure guests are sitting pretty
A well dressed reception room just screams elegance so make sure guests are sitting pretty by choosing chairs or covers which really up the ante. When sourcing these, consider the style of the room and the theme you have in mind, for the perfect finish.
7. Comfort is key
Making sure that guests are comfortable is definitely the way to their hearts. We love the idea of creating a cosy corner for guests to relax and wind down. Add plenty of cushions and candles to create a luxurious space to relax and socialise in whilst setting the mood for the party to follow. This area will also serve as a retreat for older guests who may not want to be at the heart of the action, while allowing them to still feel that they are a part of proceedings.
8. Say it with lighting
There’s no doubt about it – lighting possesses the power to add a touch of romance to a wedding, so make sure yours is on point. From stunning LED up-lighters to festoon lighting and the ever popular fairy lights, setting the mood for your wedding is easy.
Your wedding stationery is the first glimpse that guests will get into your wedding day so make sure it screams of your personality. Whether you have a theme or colour scheme in mind, incorporate this into your wedding invite to spark intrigue. Continue this theme across your seating chart, place names and table numbers. Nod to your personality by adding memories or places you’ve visited together for a touch of romance.
10. It’s all in the details
The way to really bring a wedding day to life is with those little added extras, which will effortlessly convey your hobbies and passions. From statement displays to confetti send offs, you are limited only by your imagination!
