My dear ladies in waiting, it’s time to roll out the red carpet (literally!) on your wedding day entrance… and here at Marilyn’s Keepsakes we’re oh so happy to help!
Because weddings are transitioning more into personalized events, rather than traditional affairs, it’s key for brides and grooms everywhere to find their ideal blend of modern day style and time honored taste. And there’s no better way to do this than by putting your own personal spin onto wedding’s most traditional accessories.
<Enter: The Aisle Runner>
As your guests all anxiously await your arrival, set the stage with a personal note and choose an aisle runner that has been made custom for your newlywed debut! Not sure what I mean? Well, then, let me introduce our hostess with the most’est, Ms. Fabulous herself, Adrienne, as she gives you the dish on our latest YouTube Channel video on Personalized Aisle Runners:
Alright, ladies, if it isn’t clear to you by now, your wedding day should be all about you. It’s the one day of your life when you’re guaranteed an all access pass to stardom, and I say take that baby to the moon and back (I’m sure NASA would let you borrow their fuel) and hit the door running! It’s über fun to watch all the excitement unfold, especially when it’s an event tailored to you and yours truly!
Working at Marilyn’s Keepsakes, I have the distinct pleasure of seeing how personalizing your wedding can truly make all the difference. The Mister and me’s love (as well as yours) is incredibly unique; so, why, oh why, would we ever want a day that didn’t ooze with our awesomeness? We wouldn’t, and neither should you! And if you’re anything like me, you probably have stacks of bridal magazines telling you the same thing, which is where I found several ideas.
I was totally inspired by an article I read in InStyle Weddings about how to tailor a wedding to your style and would like to share some of my favorite picks with you! Feel free to check them out, pick them up or put them down, but regardless, just be sure to live it up!
Make your chairs fit for a king (and queen, of course!): If you love flowers, which basically includes every girl under the sun, talk with your florists about what kind of arrangements they can do with your initials. The lettered bouquets are a super chic alternative to traditional chair covers and will bring structural and modern appeal to any setting!

Let your guests sip on a signature drink! If you’re planning on serving alcohol at your reception, why not add a customized cocktail to the mix? I’ve been to several events where couples concoct their favorite poison, name it after themselves and toast to its genius all night long (all night!). Even more inspiring is when brides and grooms center their witches’ brew around their décor and have them served in clear glasses. It really makes a nice, three dimensional color pop to any setting… not to mention, a great prop for photo ops! ‘Cause Lord knows, there will be plenty of those!

Let them feast on your favorite foods: What better way to accompany your signature drink than with gourmet cusine, centered around your cultural or family traditions? A few years ago, I attended a wedding (what up, Nick and Nat!) where they did an ahhh to the mazing job of blending his Mexican heritage to her Italian customs, and it was nothing short of magical! (And let’s get real, Mexican and Italian food?? Untouchablly yum-tastic!) Whether there’s a certain food your families have made a tradition or one your culture tells you to grub, bringing a part of who you are into your wedding day buffet is a delicious way to add a personalized touch of you to your wedding!

Gain greater impact from your place card holders: Is planning a seating chart for 200 causing you painstaking amounts of stress? Well, fear not my friend, because dreaming up cool place card holders will be your perfect cure! An idea the Mister and me threw around – before throwing out the seating chart, haha – was placing the name cards alphabetically on a two sided piece of aged cardstock. The one side, would have the guest’s name, and the opposite side would have famous love poem, romantic movies quote or things of the like. It was our way of “seating our guests” without physically being there. Because the place card will be one of the first things they seek, it’s a great place to put a piece of you!

Create your own wedding keepsake: There are about a million and one ways to create a keepsake from your wedding, but when a couple makes it personal, it can make all the difference. One of the more popular ones I’ve come across was used at my friend’s wedding back in August. They had a Wedding Wishing Tree, which had been decorated using paint, crystals, twinkling lights and card tags. Every guest was asked to write a wish / nice thought / favorite story etc. on a tag and hang it back on the tree for them to keep as a mmento. Another idea I particularly grew fond of was the one InStyle Wedding featured, where the couple gave each guest a beautiful stone to hold throughout the ceremony. Then, at the reception, each guest was asked to make a wish on the stone for the couple and place it in a large, glass vase. The couple, then, took the stones home and used them in their garden! Brilliant!
