It's officially the last week of Style September and today I'm talking about Tasteful Personalization!
What does tasteful personalization mean? Of course, it's fun to have a new set of initials to put on everything you own: wine glasses, luggage tags, and that new placemat in the registry. The thought of having personalized wedding items sounds equality as fun, but initials on everything can get old quickly. Here's a few pointers about how to keep it tasteful.
Think about the frame. Think about your photos and what will be captured in each frame: cake table, head table , ceremony site, etc... Don't have more than one thing personalized within that photo frame. If your cake table has a gorgeous cake topper with your names, don't also have your names on the cookies, napkins and votives. If you have your monogram on a laser cut, wooden centerpiece on your head table, you don't also need monogrammed flutes and napkins. Personalization on select items within each frame offers an added element of something special, without being overbearing.
DO personalize your favors and gifts. Favors from your wedding are what your guests get to take away to remember this special day. Feel free to monogram and personalize these with your names, wedding date, etc to ensure your guests take away something with meaning. Think about how a photo of a place is far less meaningful than a photo of a loved one in that place. Personalized gifts and favors are far less likely to be thrown away after your event than ones with no personalization or special meaning.
Personalization is more than a monogram. Personalizing your wedding is about more than just monogram in anything and everything you can get your hands on. It is about making your wedding theme, style, decor, and even the flow of your wedding events about you. For example, if you both are avid climbers, incorporate your passion into your wedding in your stylistic choices. If you love to dance and don't really care for cake, spend your night dancing and skip the cutting of the cake. Talk to you planner and communicate what are the important items to you and your planner will can help you create a wedding timeline and flow that best meets your needs.
