Personal details are essential to creating a memorable, unique wedding experience – without you and your partner, your wedding would be exactly like everyone else’s! Inspiration for unique, personal details can be found everywhere – from food to fashion to even you and your partner’s own history – essentially making the possibilities endless when it comes to adding that unique element to your big day. Whether it’s a special aspect of you individually or you and your spouse as a couple, most of the decisions you make will naturally add personality and uniqueness to your day, just from you being you!

Where can couples pull inspiration from to create customized and personal details?
Couples can pull from their history! It doesn’t have to just mean history together – it can also be history of them before they were a couple. That history is what makes them who they are and perfect for each other!
What tips do you have for couples who are not sure what personal touches to incorporate?
There’s no need to overthink how to incorporate personal touches on your wedding day. Think about what you love and what you both enjoy as a couple. If you got proposed to at the Eiffel Tower, for example, I’d suggest incorporating that into one of the many items of your wedding – food choice, logo, fonts, envelope liners, ice sculpture, floral displays… there’s so many ways.
What are some favorite personal touches that you’ve incorporated into weddings in the past?
My personal favorite lately has been ice sculptures – we did a University of Texas clock tower at a wedding in January and a middle finger 2020 ice luge at a NYE event!
How can a couple easily “brand” their wedding?
I’m no graphic designer, but I will say wedding planners can do some incredible things with your monogram once it’s created! A fun monogram is a great way to “brand” your wedding, as well as to have something unique to use on all of your wedding collateral to make a cohesive event.
