Your wedding day will probably one of the most important days of your life and most couples want their day to stand out from the rest. Adding details to your wedding day that are customised to you and your partner is the perfect way to make your day more special and unique. To help make your wedding as unique as you are, we have crafted together our top tips for customising your wedding day.


Monogramming is the perfect way to personalise many aspects of your wedding day. Design a custom monogram of yours and your partner’s initials, which can be put on to different items your wedding. Try adding your monogram to your napkins, menu and even your favours.

Have A Meaningful Menu

Having a menu that is meaningful to you and your partner is a thoughtful way to personalise your day. Think of what foods you like and what kind of restaurants you like to go to together. If neither of you have a sweet tooth, why not have stacked cheese wheels instead of a traditional tiered cake?

Include Destinations You Love

Adding elements of décor to your wedding that reference different destinations that have meaning to you as a couple is the perfect way to symbolise different memories that you have created together. Instead of having table numbers you may want to name each table a different destination that you, your partner or even your family love or that has a special meaning to you.

Have A Custom Drink Upon Arrival

Similar to having a meaningful menu on your wedding day, a great way to greet your guests upon their arrival is with a customised drink that you and your partner have created. Choose flavours that you both love, give it a unique name and present it beautifully. Your guests will love the effort that you have put into this.

Cake Topper

A perfect way to customise your cake is by having a cake topper that is unique to you both. Wooden script cake toppers are becoming increasingly popular. Try having yours with your initials or your new surname as husband and wife. For a take on the traditional bride and groom cake toppers, have one created to look like you – you may even want to have them dressed in a way that shows your interests and hobbies.

Photograph Place Cards

If you are having a smaller wedding you may want to collect photos of you and your partner with each of your family and friends. Frame these photos to suit your theme and use them as place cards on each of your tables. This is a perfectly unique and personal décor touch compared to traditional place cards –and it is something that your guests can take home with them!
