You've spent the last year (or maybe two years - thanks, COVID) planning for the perfect wedding. You've hired a planner, you've hand-selected your vendors, your dress fits, you've got everything planned, organized, and you are ready for your best day ever. Even though you are optimistic that nothing will go wrong, it's crucial to have a wedding day emergency kit to survive those unexpected hiccups. We highly recommend building your own wedding day survival kit specific to your own needs. Maybe you are prone to spilling and need to keep an extra supply of clean-up supplies or perhaps you've gone the DIY route with your wedding and need to keep a glue gun handy. Make sure to keep the survival kit in a safe place or with an attentive member of your bridal party so you'll know exactly where it's at if and when you need it. We've compiled a list of wedding day survival must-haves, plus other items you may find helpful to pack in your custom emergency kit.
One of our favorite things about weddings is how uniquely different they all are, and trust us - we've seen a lot of weddings! Yes, every wedding has a few of the same things, like a ceremony with vows, rings, the "I Do's." And most weddings have a reception with food and drinks, flowers, cake, music, and dancing. But how do you make your wedding stand out from all of the rest? How do you incorporate your story, your personality, your favorite things into your big day? Some engaged couples have that creative juice already flowing, and some may need a little list to spark that vision. Because ultimately, we believe your wedding should reflect you and your partner so that it feels genuinely and authentically yours. Here are ten ways you can personalize your wedding day.
