5 Ideas to Add a Personal Touch to Your Austin Wedding
It’s easy to get caught up in all the planning and fluff, but ultimately your Austin wedding is about you and your partner. Your marriage is paramount to this whole wedding thing, after all. And your history is unique and worth retelling on your big day. Your love story should be told by weaving bits of yours and your loved one’s personalities into the design of your wedding. So bring a few charming elements into your wedding that make it feel a little more personalized and intimate. Here are 5 ways to add a personal touch to your wedding (with some Austin flair):
PERSONALIZED PLACE SETTINGS
Guest seating at the reception is key to building the perfect atmosphere. A successful seating chart means guests are interacting, having fun, and, most importantly, keeping the peace! So make your place settings personalized to spark conversations. Draw from bits of your life and history of your relationship. Maybe you’re both huge movie buffs. Include your favorite movie and TV show quotes about love on each place setting. Or if one of you hails from Texas you could print the outlines of classic Texas icons behind each guest’s name. The possibilities are endless with personalized place settings.
Gimmicky party favors often get left behind. So provide your guests with something they’ll truly cherish as a tangible memory like a classic photo booth reel. The printed film strip is always a cool item to Instagram or pin on the fridge. Include some Texas-themed props to pay homage to your Hill Country backdrop.
SIGNATURE DRINKS THE VENUS BAR
Keep the bar tab down and the setup simple by offering wine, beer, and two signature drink options. Try serving the first couple of drinks you two shared the night you met. Or serve an old family favorite recipe. To make it Texas-style, mix up a Margarita Sangria or keep it classic with a Paloma.
UNIQUE WEDDING GUESTBOOK IDEAS
Do a fresh spin on the wedding guestbook by having guests sign a photo album that charts your love story and where they met you along the way. Or if you two are avid travelers, have people sign where they’re from on a globe. Get quirky and have guests leave messages on little scrolls in a bottle.
MAD LIBS WEDDING ADVICE CARDS
Ask your guests for their best takes on marriage advice through a mad-libs style game. Simply set up a small station with a sign about the activity and some custom cards with fill-in-the-blanks. The responses will be cute, fun, and wistful. Plus they might just come in handy one day.
