Cupid’s Advice:

Planning the details of a wedding can be stressful, here are the top three tips on how to add a perfect personal touch to your special day:

1. Create photo center pieces: If you’re looking for a sweet way to remind your guests of all you and your partner have been through leading up to the big day, feature a photo of you and your sweetheart in the centerpieces at every table and have each table guess as a group what special moment this photo is referencing. For the most fun, pick a variety of precious photos from different milestones in your relationship, like the day you met, your first date, the day you moved in together, the day you said I love you, etc. This is a great way to get your guests talking and reminiscing about their favorite memories of you as a couple and get to know each other in the process too!

2. Toast each other: Many weddings feature toasts from the maid of honor or best man, but it’s rare that the bride or groom step up to the mic themselves. For a tear-jerking moment where all eyes are on you, take some time during your reception to share a special toast dedicated to your partner, and let your significant other and new spouse do the same for you as well. While you’ll have already made some beautiful promises to each other in the vows, this is the perfect time to share a funny story about when you knew they were “the one” or explain all the beautiful things you know are waiting in the future for you two!

3. Ask for advice: Set up a decorative chalkboard and let your guests write their favorite pieces of advice for a happy and healthy marriage. When they’re done, you can hang it up in your apartment or take a picture to always remind you of all the wonderful ways your friends and family reminded you to take care of and love each other unconditionally. This is a great opportunity not only to learn the best tricks and tips for a happy marriage from couples you love, but it’s also a wonderful way to get some funny advice or crazy doodles from your single friends.
