Wedding Bells: How to Add that Personal Touch to Your Big Day

Posted on

If you are currently planning a wedding, you may be looking for ways to make it as unique and special as possible. Below are some ideas which will help you to add that personal touch to your big day.


Travelling to and from the wedding venue is a fantastic chance to let your personality to show. While it is traditional to hire a classic car, this isn't your only option. Wedding car hire companies now offer a range of special vehicles such as fire engines, vintage busses and military vehicles.


Writing your own vows is a touching way to add a personal touch to your wedding. The entire day is centred around the vows. While there are some parts of the vows which cannot be removed or rewritten for legal reasons, you still have the chance to add words which are an expression of your love for each other.


In the past, couples could only get married in religious or civic buildings. However, these days you can hire a wide range of venues for your wedding. Why not consider getting married at a sheep station, on a yacht or in a lighthouse? Be adventurous, the sky is the limit. Work with a wedding hire company to find a suitable venue and to have the proper additions like tables and chairs if necessary.

First Dance

The first dance used to be all about a slow romantic song which the newly married couple could sway along to. However, increasing numbers of newlyweds are breaking the mould and doing daring first dances. If you have a favourite type of music, you could hire a dance teacher and take lessons before the wedding. Why not consider ballroom dancing or salsa? After the formal exchange of vows, the first dance is a great opportunity to change gear and kick start the evening celebrations.

Dining and Drinks

Add the final personal touch by thinking about the food and drinks that will be served to your guest. When you hire a wedding caterer, they will be able to produce a bespoke menu which features some of your favourite foods. Consider naming each dish after important people or places in your life. You should also enquire to see if they can produce a special wedding cocktail which can be served to guest before the wedding breakfast. You should also consider personalising the individual name cards for each guest and choosing flowers and candle holders which say something about your guest and their relationship to you.
