Here is a few ideas for the couples that want their wedding to be as personal as they are. Share some of your special life moments with your guests at the wedding by personally creating some treats for you and your guests.

Making those Special Touches Yourself

A wedding is the most important and special day of a woman’s life and it should be just as unique as she is, or they are, if you’re lucky enough to have a man that is as interested in the wedding preparations as you are.

With huge amount of accessories that go along with a wedding there certainly plenty of ways to do some extra personalization and maybe save some costs as well. Whatever is unique to you can be added into your wedding. You are not limited to simply choosing the colors of your wedding and the designs available from the printer.

Invitations: Invitations are usually ordered from a printer and you look through a book with hundreds of designs that hundreds of other brides have chosen. Having your invitations homemade will add an extra special touch to your wedding before it even begins. There are many script options and designs that can be completely hand created. Some specialty touches can be made by incorporating the use of Quilling and Cross stitch.

Center Pieces: Center pieces can be designed with the things you cherish the most. Whether you create a basket center piece with dried or silk flowers, which can be used and appreciated for years to come, or vases with dimensional design flowers created with Plastic Canvas; if using a clear vase they can be filled with items that correspond with the theme of your wedding, such as sea shells for instance.

Table Tags: This is another way you can create a personal touch. By placing the guests’ names on a table tag written in Calligraphy or even stitched on the card, you will add an element that is often missed at most weddings. If you want to take it a step further you can hand crochet small flowers from thread that coincide with the colors of the wedding.

Garters: This item is often tossed at the wedding and gone forever, just as the bride’s bouquet of flowers. You can have a special garter made just for you that you can keep. Wearing both garters during your wedding and the tossing the regular garter leaves you with a wonderful keepsake. This keepsake garter is often crocheted as well, and a mini replica of the bouquet that you carry can be created with crochet flowers and foliage to stream down the thigh; now you have a keepsake and memory of both pieces of your wedding that are normally lost to you.

These are just a few simple things that can be done to help make your special day that much more unique and memorable. These things may take some time to get together and have the work done but are well worth it and will usually cost less.

There are many other ways to specialize this wonderful day, the important thing to remember is this is your day and if you want chili pepper bouquets on the reception table, and your partner doesn’t mind, you should have them
