Planning a wedding is a lot of fun, but it's also a lot of work. Right after you pop open the first bottle of bubbly and celebrate your engagement with the ones you love the most, it's time to dive into the details, the decisions, and the DIY projects.

From venue tours to cake tastings, flower arrangements to a song list for the DJ, your wedding to-do list will soon grow from one flimsy page, to what feels like a full notepad worth of tasks. With so much to do, it's easy to forget about the little things when planning a wedding, like having table numbers, ceremony programs, a personalized guest book, or even a bathroom amenity basket. Yet, most of the time, it's those personal touches that can make your day feel special, one of a kind, and extra memorable for all of your guests.

A simple tip that'll help you knock items off your to-do list, is to define the look and feel of your wedding day early on. That way, you can narrow down vendors, chose a theme you adore and have all your details blend together nicely.

From the napkins at the bar to the welcome signs greeting your guests, sticking with a fluid style, and adding bits of personalization throughout, is an easy and affordable way to create a unique and consistent atmosphere that will make even the smallest details stand out on the big day.

Start by finding matching products that span across different items, or chose a template that accommodates your wedding ambiance. That way, you can stay organized with your designs and save money on having to customize each option. Plus, ordering your wedding invitations, stationery, and personalized items, all in one place, cuts out the headache of having to shop around and provides you with the opportunity to cut costs along the way.

Let's explore a list of items you can customize for your wedding that will make your big day light up with personality and charm.

Planning your event

Engagement invitations

Kick-off your pre-wedding events with an engagement party invitation, showing guests a glimpse of your wedding theme and hinting at what's to come.

Save-the-dates

Share the news about your big day on a customized card (with an envelope) or a postcard that'll get your guests excited about your wedding.

Bridesmaid cards

Pop the “will you be my bridesmaid" question to your nearest and dearest friends with a personalized card, sign, or label that you can place on a bottle of wine or their favorite scented candle.

Wedding invitations

Add your personal flair to wedding invitations and match your invites and RSVPs using your wedding look and feel. If you´re getting married out in the country or near the sea, add subtle details or choose a template that reflects your venue.

Bridal shower invitations

Set the mood for your bridal shower with an invitation that embodies the color scheme, atmosphere, and mood for a sweet afternoon or morning celebration with your closest friends and family members.

Bachelorette party invitations

Let your friends in on all the details for one of the best weekends of your life with an invitation that makes them want to pack their suitcase months in advance.

Your wedding hashtag

Get your friends involved in the big day by creating a hashtag that you can share on invitations, table cards, and even wedding programs, asking guests to use it when they post photos throughout your wedding adventure.

Wedding website

Websites are a popular and handy way to showcase the venue, provide directions and can even be used for booking accommodation and requesting special music from your DJ. If you’re feeling particularly creative, you can even include a video with a personal message from the happy couple.

 

Bridal party gifts

Design a little something special for the members of your bridal party who have been by your side from the start. Create personalized koozies, wine glasses, t-shirts, or tote bags, with their name or nickname on it.

Your big day

Wedding day signs

Guide your guests through your wedding day in style with signs that point them in the right direction (and to the dance floor).

Wedding ceremony programs

Describe the details of the ceremony, mentioning those who are participating in it, and any special announcements you'd like your guests to see.

Wedding place cards

Let your guests know what table they should get cozy at for the night with customized place cards. Print them on your choice of paper, with your wedding theme or design on it. Remember to add your unique wedding hashtag.

 

Wedding menu cards

Showcase the mouthwatering food on the menu for your first meal as a couple. List the different entrée choices and don't forget to include what's for dessert!

Welcome baskets

Greet your out-of-town guests with a wedding welcome basket when they check-in to their hotel. Fill it with party essentials, a weekend itinerary, and snacks from your favorite local spots. Brand the basket with a sticker that has your wedding logo, hashtag or theme on it.
