How to infuse your personal style into your wedding

Planning a wedding can range from the exciting to the nerve wracking. With all the choices there are to make we can feel like we’re juggling too many things at the same time. Making choices can feel daunting, especially if you want your wedding to be perfect. There are many things to consider, but in the end, you want to have a wedding that feels unique, true to yourself, and that makes you shine as a couple in the company of your friends and family.

Read on to find out how to infuse all the things you love into your day with minimum stress! 

Food and drinks for your wedding

Choosing your favorite foods, beverages and desserts is an easy way to tailor your day to your own taste. Although having different options available for your guests is a good idea, you can always add some of your favorite things to eat to the mix! Do you love pizza, craft cocktails or donuts? Incorporating these experiences are a perfect way to share your personality with your guests and have a wedding day that you love!

Wedding decor

This is one of the best ways to showcase your personal style in your wedding. Choose statement tablecloths, napkins in your favorite colors, bring in whimsical centerpieces and choose the most gorgeous flowers for your day! These are just some of the many decor options that you can customize for your wedding. Pro tip: The more personal you get, the better!

Play with the season

A great way to make a wedding unique is to use inspiration from the season it’s in. This will also help reduce the amount of options that you have for decor, colors, etc., which is a great idea if you’re the indecisive type! Every season has something to offer: Are you having a Summer wedding? How about some Oysters for Cocktail Hour? Are you having an Autumn wedding? Incorporate some fall colors in your linens or bridesmaid dresses. A Spring wedding can be an explosion of flowers, fresh fruits and pastel colors; or have a magical Winter Wedding adorned with candles, evergreens and cozy, spiced warm beverages. The options are endless!
