If you’re in the mood to host a wedding that feels uniquely you, then these ideas are perfect! There are plenty of super cute ways to add a personal touch to your wedding and I’m here to share a few of my favourites.
A personal touch might be your unique way of doing something (like cutting the cake after the ceremony, which is something I did), a cute way of displaying your names or initials, or a sweet way to get your guests involved in the festivities. Take a peek at some of my favourite ways to add a personal touch to your wedding day.
Begin with a personal touch
Before you even get to your wedding day, why not send your guests a wedding invitation or Save The Date with a personal touch included? I just love these beer mats that are functional, super cute and have a lovely personal element to them.

Get creative with your ceremony music
One really fun way you can add a personal touch to your wedding is with music! There are so many really great ways to do that, so I asked the award-winning Olivia Romeo to share some creative ideas with us. She suggested that you pick your favourite music, because this enhances the ceremony. In fact, why not consider a mashup of all your favourite songs, no matter how obscure they may be? Another fabulous idea is to use a song from a loved one’s ceremony as your Something Old.

Another super cute way to add a personal touch to your wedding is with these personalised number plates, with your names and wedding date on them! Bonus: you get to keep them, so they serve as a lovely keepsake.

Mix up the seating arrangement
There are plenty of ways to get creative with the way your guests are seated, at your ceremony or reception. I’m a big fan of changing things up, especially if the result is a fabulous new way for guests to engage in your ceremony. As a shortie who is often sitting behind tall people with big hats, I quite like the idea of a unique ceremony seating plan. Station House Hotel’s layout is really functional and it looks super cute too – just look at how the angle will make it easier for more guests to watch you exchange vows! Bonus: the setting is really pretty too.
