It’s your big day. Whatever your wedding means to you, it should reflect your style and personality. Here are some of the most popular ways to make your own mark:
1. Personalised wedding stationery
The first thing your wedding guests see is the ‘save the date’ card or wedding invitation. Bespoke stationery is now deservedly popular, as it can carry a theme from the outset and throughout the day, including the order of service, place cards and menus.
2. Wedding cake
Gone are the days of the three-tiered fruit cake. Now you can choose something you really love – whether that’s a collection of chocolate cupcakes, a gravity defying design, a lemon drizzle cake baked to granny’s recipe, or a ‘naked’ (icing-free) cake adorned with fresh flowers. Some people even opt for three tiers of cheese!
The wedding flowers are one of the most striking things about any wedding. Why not add your mum’s favourite flower into the mix or replicate her wedding posy? Carry a bunch of wildflowers, or even use flowers from the gardens of your family and friends if you can.
Create your own playlist for the DJ, or kick things off Celtic-style with a ceilidh band. Hire a jazz band, your favourite pub singer or a magician, or wow your guests with fireworks.
The car will be one of the most photographed things on the day – as well as one of the most talked about. Hire something you love – whether that’s a classic VW camper, a London taxi or bus, a sleek sports car, or a vintage or modern Mini.
