Top 5 Tips To Personalise Your Wedding Day Decor

July 25, 2020

What can often be lost in the midst of wedding planning is that ultimately your day is about you and your partner and what better time to share your love story than on your wedding day with all of your guests?!

Many couples seek to find ways in which they can personalise their wedding day decor so that it reflects both them as a couple but also individually. Perhaps you have a favourite hobby, film, or childhood memory that you would like to incorporate into your styling? This can be achieved with a subtle nod towards a particular element as opposed to having a strong theme running throughout.

With lots of different options to personalise your wedding decor, here’s our top 5 ideas to consider for your special day!

Personalised Signage

Dependent upon the venue in which you’re getting married, signage is a fantastic way to add your personality whilst also being informative. Greet your guests at the entrance with a “Welcome to the wedding of…” sign followed by an “Order of Service” to advise guests of the timings and what they can expect throughout the day.

Light up letters and neon sign quotes

Lighting is a popular choice at weddings and the market has exploded with personalised choices such as neon quotes that can be used to style up your dance floor area or reception. There’s everything from “Happily Ever After” to “Crazy in Love” or perhaps there’s a quote that is more personal to you both that you could get custom made as a keepsake for after the wedding.

Giant light up letters spelling out your surname or laser cut wooden artwork that can be attached to backdrops such as flower walls or foliage walls are also an effective choice.


Personalised decal artwork is really growing in popularity and is a fantastic choice for couples that are wanting to achieve continuity throughout their wedding decor. If you choose your artwork design at the start of your wedding planning then this can then be added to your save the dates, invitations, seating plan or table plan and other signage pieces such as menu cards, directions, guest book station signs etc. The repetition of the artwork becomes symbolic of your day and you as a couple.

Table Numbers

Rather than numbering your tables 1-10, naming your tables by things that are meaningful to you both is another brilliant way of adding a subtle nod towards your personalities and sharing your love story. How about naming the tables by countries or places that you’ve both visited, concerts that you’ve both been to together or your favourite films?

Pick flowers that are personal to you

Many people have a favourite flower or a particular bloom that has particular significance to them. Depending on the month you’re getting married, check with your stylist or florist as to whether or not your favourite flower is in season and you could bring these into your bouquets and buttonholes as well as your centrepieces and other floral decorations. Maybe it’s the scent of a certain flower that triggers a memory such as the calming scent of lavender which could be added into the backs of your chairs or used as napkin decor to complete your place settings.
