Cupid’s Advice:

Your wedding will be the best day of your life, hands down. No matter how you decide to celebrate, the day should be about you and your partner. Cupid has some ideas on how to make your big day as special as possible:

1. Add your personal touch: Your wedding is all about representing you and your partner. Make sure your personalities shine through! You can add your own creative spins on traditional engagement or wedding must-haves. If you don’t like cake, don’t serve it! Pie is good too. Its your day, so you have free reign to make it your own.

2. No-phone zone: If you’re having an engagement party or a wedding, encourage your guest to put their devices away. You’ll likely have a photographer taking care of documenting your day, so it’ll encourage everyone to enjoy the day in real-time! It’ll surely make your day seem more personal and authentic (and you won’t be worried thinking people are bored!)

3. Create a hashtag: Don’t like the idea of a phone-free zone? That’s okay! Wedding hashtags are very on-trend. Creating a cute play on words with your last names or thinking of a funny inside joke is makes for a perfect wedding hashtag. The more creative, the better! That way, you can go back and browse through all the moments your guests shared together. It’s like a digital guest book!
