Every wedding is the same in that couples end up hitched at the end of the day. But the rest of the affair is completely in your hands! You can choose everything from the decorations and the vows you share with your other half, to the food being served and the dress you wear. Personalize your wedding with these fun ideas for your nuptials:

Ways to make your wedding feel more you

Invitation wording/design
Imagine getting to design your very own wedding invitations. Well, with Invitations by Dawn, that is entirely possible. You can create the invitations for which you’ve always dreamed. All you have to do is figure out the style and wording, then send it to us to print for you! Choose the type and color of the paper to customize your stationery to your exact specifications.

Your wedding dress will already be special to you because you’re the one who picked it out. However, there are a few more ways to customize your outfit. For example, if you love sparkle and shine, you can add an embellished belt to give you dress that wow factor. You can also choose to implement something borrowed into your dress by sewing a part of your mom’s old wedding gown onto yours, like a section of lace. Incorporate your love for your father on your gown by embroidering part of a tie or shirt in the shape of a heart.

Ceremony readings/handwritten vows
Traditional wedding ceremony readings are timeless and beautiful. But if you’re looking for something more tailored to your relationship, you can either write your own vows, or choose readings from your favorite books, movies, TV shows, songs or poems. For instance, if your first date was seeing a romantic comedy at the theater, you may want to choose a quote from the film that will really resonate with the two of you.

Music selection
Music can set the tone for love and romance on your big day. Make your walk down the aisle even more special by selecting a song you feel best exemplifies your emotions. Of course it could be the classic Canon in D Major by Johann Pachelbel, but you could go a different route and choose nontraditional ballads such as “Reign of Love” by Coldplay or “Moth’s Wings” by Passion Pit.

Abide by the same guidelines when picking out music for your wedding reception. When choosing a first dance song, go through titles to which you and your other half have always related. Your first dance song could be something that you listened to on your first date, or the ballad playing in the background during the proposal.
