You have probably dreamt of this special day since you were a little girl. You’re walking down the aisle wearing the best wedding dress you can afford, with both your parents by your side. But if mom or dad is no longer there to witness your special day, consider adding a photo charm of your deceased loved ones on your bridal bouquet. They may not be with you physically, but know that they’re with you in spirit. With the photo charm on your bouquet, it almost feels like they’re walking with you down the aisle.
Creative table numbers
Table numbers will get your guests to their seat, but they are boring. Instead of the traditional table numbers, why not use it to tell your guests about your love story? Personalize your wedding by naming tables as special dates, places you’ve been to or even your favorite foods.
Learn some moves
Your first dance is such a personal moment. It will be the very first dance you’ll share as a married couple.

Not only will you wow your guests, your partner will love you even more for making an effort. We bet you’ll have an amazing time on the dance floor. So go ahead and unleash the dancer in you.

Give your family and friends a front row view of your love for food. What are your favorite foods? Where do you usually eat when you go on a date? Do you prefer to keep it casual by grabbing tacos from a food truck? Do you prefer to stay at home and enjoy some home-cooked meals? Or do you usually hit up the newest spots in town?
If you both love the tacos from the food truck, then contact the owner and see if you can serve it to your guests. Another option would be to incorporate a family dish into your meal. That would be an excellent way to personalize your wedding.
Create a unique hashtag
Everyone will be snapping photos of you, the venue and every little details of the wedding. Later on, you’ll find everyone busy tapping on their smartphones, and uploading those photos on social media. As such, it is worth crafting a unique hashtag that represents your union.
One of the best ways to put your own unique stamp on your wedding is by creating a unique hashtag. This will allow you to enjoy your wedding moments later on and see the photos everyone has uploaded on that day.
Thank you notes
Your family and friends have been there for you from the preparation to your wedding day. Let them know how much you appreciate their efforts by writing them personal notes. It may be simple, but we bet they’ll appreciate it. A heartfelt, handwritten note is definitely a great way to say thank you. If the budget permits, then you may want to throw in a simple token along with the note.
