There are loads of ways to add personal touches to your own unique wedding. To make your big day feel like it represents you both, and shows your character.
Obviously the colour theme of your wedding is a great way of putting forward part of your personality, whether you’re a vibrant pink person, or loves an elegant black. Even if you want the whole rainbow! Express yourself with colour on your day.
Dress / Suit
Whether you are wearing a suit or a dress, the style you choose will portray who you are. Wear something that makes you feel special, and that you feel comfortable wearing. You don’t want to wear something that you don’t feel is you. Make sure you don’t let others talk you out of wearing something that breaks tradition, or what they feel you should wear.
If you don’t want to wear white don’t ! Coloured wedding dresses are becoming more popular and look stunning. White doesn’t suit everyone so express yourself with colour in your dress or suit.
Your shoes may or may not be seen, if you never wear heels then maybe don’t wear heels for your wedding. You will feel uncomfortable, and you will probably take them off sooner rather than later. And for you men, again if you really don’t feel comfortable in dress shoes look for alternatives. Maybe not your old dirty trainers, but a new pair of smart flip flops or clean those trainers.
These are modern times and Groom’s might have best friends who are woman, and Bride’s might have a male best friend. So ditch the traditional Bride’s maid of honour and Groom’s Best man, and how about a Best Person.
Bouquets can be big, small, traditional, modern, or a corsage. The choice of flower(s) is very personal, you might love a rose or prefer a sunflower. Choose your favourite flowers to add personality to your day.
And not forgetting your Bride’s maids, why not let their uniqueness shine through too. How about tailoring their bouquet to them, a different flower for each of them that represent them. You could even reflect their star signs. Check out this link to flowers and zodiac signs
Whoever is wearing the buttonhole, whether it’s yourself or your partner. That person should ultimately have a say in what they like.
