5 Little Details Not to Skip On Your Wedding Day

Guest Post, Blue Nile:  It’s no secret that planning your wedding can be overwhelming. Between focusing on the major details such as choosing a venue to event logistics, it can be easy to overlook the little details that really make your big day special. From personalized décor to entertainment for your guests, here are a few ideas that will help make your wedding an experience your guests will remember for years to come!


1. Grand entrance

So much focus is put on the altar, but what about your entrance? There are so many little things you can do to add personalized touches to wow your guests as you walk down the aisle. If you’re going with a rustic theme for your wedding, having a vintage door at the opening of your entrance is a symbolic way to welcome your guests. Not to mention, it’s the perfect backdrop for your loved ones to see you for the first time in your dress. Tying ribbon on the posts of your aisle chairs is a great way to spice up your aisle as well. This is YOUR day, so why not walk down your own version of the red carpet by adding a personalized runner to your aisle?


2. Table numbers and escort cards

Table numbers are a great way to spruce up your tables and also add a little personalization to your decor. A fun way to do this is to correspond the table number with a fact about you and your new spouse for your guests to learn more about your relationship. Escort cards allow your guests to easily determine which table they will be seated at, but they don’t have to be boring. Rather than organizing them on a table, show them off in a creative display. Whether you use a vintage window pane or just add ribbon to them, the possibilities are endless!


3. Take pride in your rings

One of the most memorable experiences of any wedding ceremony is the exchanging of rings. This is where the symbol of love is placed on each finger as you promise to love your partner for the rest of your life. Since this is such a special moment in your big day and you’ll be wearing these rings forever, it’s important to make sure that you choose a wedding band that not only symbolizes your love, but also pairs well with your engagement ring. When you are shopping for your wedding bands take into consideration which metals you’d prefer, whether you want a simple band or a more flashy one, and how it will look with your engagement ring. If you’re unsure of which style you prefer, many jewelers including, Blue Nile, offer a large selection of wedding rings online, that are worth taking a look at. Resources like these can give you a better idea as to which style fits best with your personality and your engagement ring.


4. Dress up your cocktails

Cocktail hour is a time for your guests to mingle while the wedding party takes photos and prepares for the reception. Let’s face it, cocktails are way more fun when they’re dressed up or have fun names! Adding little umbrellas or cute stirrers to your drinks gives them a more personalized look. You can also try creating a few of your own cocktails that match the colors of your wedding and name them after different aspects of your relationship. Personalize your cocktail napkins with a cute saying to represent your everlasting love with your partner.


5. Get creative with your guest book

Many couples opt out of having a guest book because they feel like it gets skipped over by guests. The trick is to make your guest book fun so guests will actually want to sign it! Forgo the traditional guest signings and go for something more unique like asking guests to write a marriage tip or date idea on a popsicle stick so you and your partner can enjoy more than the typical well wishes.
