Your wedding day is probably going to be the biggest, most expensive part you ever throw, so let’s make sure it’s a fun and memorable one!

  1. Your vows. Write your own vows and make them personal (but not too personal!). If public speaking is not your thing, ask a friend to officiate your wedding and have them tell a meaningful anecdote about your relationship.

  1. Your accessories. Wear a family heirloom, embroider a jean jacket, or show off your personal style by wearing fun heels or sneakers or by rocking a leather jacket to your reception dinner.

  1. Have a signature cocktail. Serve each of your favorite drinks or the same cocktail, wine or beer you enjoyed together on your first date! Also, consider getting creative with the name of your signature cocktail. 
  1. Personalize the food. Whether it’s a passed o’dourve during cocktail hour, the main dish, include food that honors your heritage or a favorite place you’ve been together. 
  1. Thoughtful guest favors. Offer a gift item that represents your favorite pastime, hometown or something else significant to you both!

  1. Pay homage to your pets. Whether it be via photos, custom illustrations or naming your signature cocktails after them, there are plenty of creative ways to incorporate your pet into your big day.
  1.  The Entertainment. Get creative with the entertainment and consider something that celebrates your heritage. We have had couples bring in Chinese Lion Dancers and Arabic drummers. 
  1. Custom artwork. Work with a designer to create a custom watercolor or crest you can incorporate into your stationary and day-of-signage.
