13 Signature Wedding Details That AREN’T Cocktails
Personalize ALL the wedding things.
We've all heard of "signature cocktails," but there are so many more ways to personalize your wedding! Check out our ideas for 13 Signature Wedding Details That AREN’T Cocktails. Your guests will thank you when they don't have such a wicked hangover the next morning.
1 } Customize (and Colorize!) Your Wedding Jewelry
Kendra Scott's Color Bar is pretty much our new favorite thing. Custom jewelry you design to match your wedding style and color palette—without the sticker shock? Sign. Us. Up.
2 } Create Your Own Unique Look With Bridal Separates
Long lace sleeves with a tulle skirt? Or perhaps you're more into the sweetheart neckline and maxi skirt. Wait, did somebody say bolero?! Whatever style you fancy, BHLDN has bridal separates that you can mix and match to create your own perfect wedding ensemble.
3 } Implement A Signature Snapchat Geofilter
We've all seen the wedding hashtags at this point, but have you considered creating a custom Snapchat filter for your wedding day? Snapchat allows you to upload your own design, or create one using their online design tool. Set your wedding date and geographic location, and simply pay a small fee so that your guests can snap the wedding night away using your fancy filter!
4 } Design A Wedding Logo
Wedding logos are the modern take on monograms. You can use your logo on everything from the invitations to the cake topper to...wedding tattoo favors?! It's the perfect wedding gift to request from your super cool graphic designer friend.
5 } Personalize Your Cake Topper
Speaking of cake toppers, gone are the boring bride-and-groom relics of the past. Stick something like "Mutual Weirdness Forever" on a gorgeous wedding cake, and your personalities will be on full display. Bonus points if you frame your cake topper after the wedding.
6 } Design Your Own Wedding Shoes
We've come a long way since Dyeables. Nowadays, you can customize everything from the color to the heel, and even the style. (Hellooo, burlap bows!) Or heck, just design your own Converse for the dance party.
7 } Make A Cameo On Your Wedding Candy
Don't just customize the colors—put your names, date, and even photos on these custom M&Ms. Personalized M&Ms can elevate any wedding candy table. Plus, when is chocolate ever not a good idea?
8 } Monogram Your Ring Box
Chances are, you've seen The Mrs. Box somewhere on social media. These monogrammed velvet ring boxes are a modern take on the wedding heirloom. They even come in 26 colors (and counting!), so matching your unique wedding color palette will be a cinch.
9 } Mix Up Your Own Signature Scent
With a build-your-own signature perfume, you can be reminded of your Big Day every time you wear it. From lavender to lemongrass, you pick the scents that put you in your happy place.
10 } Build Your Own Ring
If ready-made ring options just aren't screaming wedding ring of my dreams, why not design your own? These inspiring custom designs on Brilliant Earth's website are serious wedding ring goals.
11 } Put Your Stamp On It
You can customize your wedding stationery, but what about customizing your postage stamps? Start the party off right from the second your guests open their invitations. Use that wedding logo you had designed or even an engagement photo to add a personal touch to your envelopes.
12 } Plan Your Own Wedding Planner
Who wants a ho-hum wedding planner when you can have a gorgeous, customized one? Design your own on Erin Condren's website—from the cover to the (rose gold?!) spiral, and all the way down to the stickers.
13 } Check Out The Tie Bar
The guys can't let the girls have all the personalized fun! The Tie Bar lets you shop ties by color, pattern, and wedding theme. This site even helps you match ties to popular bridesmaid dress brands and colors so there's no risk of clashing. Score!
