Special Touches on the Wedding Day

How do you make this event yours? By including special touches on the wedding day! Here are some ideas of how you could create emotion and connection!

Special touches on the wedding

Write a sweet letter

Writing a sweet letter, sharing with your partner why you’re marrying them, is a wonderful way to set the tone for the day. Sometimes, people even read them around the corner from one another, which is also a very sweet touch. All that matters is building the excitement for the next time you see each other! I love the above photo, Katie couldn’t stop tearing up at all the sweet words Maegan shared with her. It was such a beautiful moment, one of many on a truly spectacular day!

Custom Gifts

A beautiful custom gift, like these cuff links with the specific ceremony time (and also an inside joke), is a fantastic gift. The groom, Josh, put them on immediately after. Jewelry, cuff links, ties, hankies, etc. All wonderful gifts, to commemorate a perfect day!

Bring your dog!!

I love dogs at weddings, as long as they actually listen! haha! What a fun way to include your whole family into the experience! Not all dogs do well in events like weddings, but there are amazing companies like The Wedding Pet Attendant, who will show up and help with your pet the WHOLE day!

Special Touches on the Wedding Day

Get ready together! 

This is generally an activity only LGBT+ couples do, because hetero couples tend to focus on traditions, but I love this. It’s such an intimate feel, helping one another get ready for the big moment. Of course, you can’t do a first look at this point. However, I think sometimes it’s a decent trade, not missing a moment together.

Matching robes

It looks so clean and beautiful when everyone is wearing beautiful satin robes. Look at this photo! Everyone looks so posh and no one will regret wearing their ratty high school t-shirt with holes in them! This is certainly one of my favorite special touches on the wedding day to see during getting ready!

Late night snack!

You know what goes well with an open bar? A LATE NIGHT SNACK! Your friends will absolutely love you for thinking of their achy alcohol belly, trust me! I never get to eat these kind of noshes (I miss you Whataburger), but I know the guests always really appreciate it!
