PERSONALIZE Your Wedding You hear it all the time – personalizing your wedding is the way to really set your day apart. Here are some creative ways to make your wedding unique and make it feel like it is really your wedding with that personal touch. One of the greatest and easiest ways to personalize your wedding is to write your own wedding vows. The promises you make to your loved one are the whole reason the wedding is happening. Make sure the place you are getting married allows you to do this, not all do. If you are unable to pen your own promises, think about doing something in the wedding programs. You could write something together, like a favourite poem or quote, and have your words printed onto the programs. While limousines still remain the tradition for transportation for your wedding, you can add another level of personalization by using transportation that says more about you as a couple. Hop aboard decorated tandem bikes, take a ride in a vintage city cab or vintage car, zoom away on a super
sleek vespa scooter. You are only limited by your imagination! Your first dance – make it count! Take the time to really think about your song choice and make sure it means something to the both of you. But don’t stop there! Put a little tango into that two-step. Take some dance lessons and have an instructor help you choreograph a completely unique first dance that will be a real show stopper. Many couples these days are using candies and cocktails (jars of M&M’s and anything ending in “-tini” usually sounds and tastes good) to incorporate their colours into their menu. You could also serve solely local cuisine or specialty dishes. As a lasting impression, pass around personalized treats at the end of the night. Midnight snacks are becoming very popular and keep the dance floor packed by having your waiters pass around your mom’s famous chocolatechip cookies or some other treat. A sugar-high note is one of the sweetest ways to close out the night.
