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 style you both love
Choosing a particular ‘style’ for your wedding, is the perfect way to create a day, which reflects what you both love. Whether it’s soft pink blush tones, a boho inspired day or drawing on old Hollywood glamour for inspiration, 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.
Recently, flower walls have dominated, which isn’t surprising, given that they can be used in so many ways. Whether as a backdrop to the top table, to draw the eye towards your exquisite cake or simply as an area where guests can gather to take stunning photos, the floral backdrop is definitely an easy way to evoke your fun side on your wedding day.
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 style 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 style to life. Whether glamorous, rustic, elegant, classic or romantic, choose a centrepiece which conveys your wedding day style.
5. 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 overall vision you have in mind to choose chairs which reflect your personal style. Today, couples are loving ‘naked’ wooden style chairs, adorned with flowers for a unique approach.
6. 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.
7. 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. Whatever style you have in mind for your wedding, incorporate this into your wedding invite to spark intrigue. Continue this across your seating chart, place names and table numbers. This is an amazing place to nod to your personality. Whether it’s travel, sport interests, hobbies, or simply memories or places you’ve visited together, get creative and impress guests with oodles of charm.
9. A spectacular send off
To portray your fun side, give guests a send off that they’ll never forget. Sparkler send offs and spectacular firework displays are becoming more popular and a great way to get everyone involved. Plus, there’s no denying that this can make for a truly amazing wedding photo and something you will treasure forever.
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 personalised favours, you are limited only by your imagination!
