5 Creative Ways to Add Personality to Your Wedding

Here is the occupational hazard of being a wedding photographer. . . I get so many ideas that I wish I could go back and do my wedding all over again. I got married before the dawn of Pinterest, which was probably a good thing, or I’d still be sitting here folding hundreds of origami cranes (or something like that!) I want to share with you some amazing weddings details that are a reflection of the couples who created them.

Here are 5 Creative Ideas

To Add Your Personality to Your Wedding

  1. Reception Table Numbers

    Table numbers or markers can be an amazing opportunity to express who you are as a couple. Check out how this bride/art teacher/painter by trade created unique table markers. Each table is represented by a different iconic symbol from our state of Connecticut.

2. Dinner + Dessert

The food at your wedding blows me away! Just looking at these photos while editing makes me hungry! Here are just two amazing ideas to make your food memorable. I think a whole blog post about food is in order.

A variety of desserts! Yum!

Pizza is definitely the most amazing idea.

3. Bring the WHOLE family

A lot of the couples I work with, well over 1/2 of them, bring their dog to at least one part of the wedding day. There are services who will come pick up your dog after the ceremony or bring him/her to any part of your day to be in photos. I mean what could be more special than a photo with your furry baby on your wedding day? Pet Taxis to your wedding from West Hartford start at $100. or find a local college student. http://westhartfordpetsitters.com/pet-care-rates/ You will be so happy you did!

4. Remember

Add photos of those people who you wish could be by your side but are in your heart instead.

5. Music

I saved the best for last! Music is by far the one thing that will add so much personality to your wedding and make it the party of your lifetime! From a harpist, to a mariachi band, to the bride or groom singing their vows, I have seen the most beautiful expressions of love through music.
