12 WAYS TO MAKE YOUR WEDDING MORE YOU – WITH ADVICE FROM OUR PREVIOUS BRIDES!

A Fun Filled DIY Wedding With a Nod to Chinese & Japanese Culture

One of the things we are often asked is how to make a wedding more personalized. Now for us that seems like an insanely simple answer, yet that is because we spend almost every waking moment being creative, for us adding personality is a fun challenge. However, for others the idea of adding a personal touch sounds more complicated, especially as the word DIY usually finds its way into the same sentence.

Although I agree crafting personal touches can add a little something unique, it isn’t the only way to make your wedding more you. So we have listed our top 12 original ideas, using tried and tested advice from our previous ‘real brides’. Enjoy!

Write Your Own Vows

We wrote our own vows in secret, only consulting on the maximum length. No-one was more surprised than us, that we had picked out the same anecdotes from our relationship to highlight. I was very close to tears and it just cemented the knowledge that we were meant to be together. We also wrote our ring exchange based on our wonderful experience of making our rings in Dorset at Flux ‘n Flame jewellery school.”

Mutual Weirdness Forever

Make Your Outfits Work For You

Ronnie chose the groomsmen outfits based on his own quirky style. Knee socks are a Ronnie staple! We knew that the only way Ronnie could truly enjoy our day was if he got to experience it in his own version of dressed up. It was because of the outfit choice that we decided on the color scheme, which ended up morphing into the theme of the wedding, I even had a friend add a rainbow tulle petticoat to my dress. Multicolor and mutual weirdness sprung from who we are! We wanted our guests to feel like they were celebrating us in our way, just as we are!”

Drive to the Ceremony Together

“One of my favorite parts of the day was the drive to our venue. The Groom and I drove together, and had a sing-along to one of our favorite bands to get out some nerves.”

Choose Your Own Dancing Tunes

We planned all of the music ourselves. We are both huge music lovers and we didn’t feel happy paying a generic DJ to play the top 40 for us so we designed playlists on Spotify for each part of the wedding, even the order the songs would play in so they faded into each other correctly. The music was a real labour of love and we will treasure those playlists forever.”
