Whether you dream of saying I DO barefoot on the beach, in cowboy boots in a country barn, or at a glamorous estate, it’s the personal touches that will make your wedding memorable. There’s no shortage of creativity these days so here are 5 easy ways to make your wedding day special by adding a personal touch.
1. Your favorite words as ceremony decor
What better way to express how you feel than by having some of your favorite words as decoration hanging over the ceremony. After the wedding you can take the sign home as a wonderful keepsake.

2. Create a signature wedding cocktail
Create a signature drink to be served as the guests enter cocktail hour or even share his and her’s favorite drinks. Make sure the drinks have a fun and flirty name, and consider making a festive sign announcing them at the bar.

3. Get creative with the food menu
If both of you are big foodies, create a menu that incorporates some of your favorite foods, from the hors d’oeuvres served at the ceremony to fruit-cups and root-beer floats served after the cake.
4. Offer to your guests unique wedding favors
Personalized wedding favors are all the rage these days and for good reason. We’ve all gotten (and promptly discarded) those wedding favors that have become a cliche so choose something that will show your personality and also tie-in to the location of your wedding.
A Vermont wedding might warrant miniature jars of maple syrup, a beach wedding might call for a personalized beach ball, and a great New York wedding favor could be a Not for Tourists guide. How about this great honey jar idea ?
5. Share your soundtrack of love
A customized CD of your favorite songs has become a popular favor with many couples. Your guests will surely appreciate your gift, and remember what a great time they had at your wedding just by playing your soundtrack.
