Chances are your wedding day is already going to be pretty romantic! But if you want to add some extra special touches to your wedding then take a look at our list of dreamy ideas that are perfect for adding some extra romance...
Write Your Partner a Romantic Note for the Morning of the Wedding
We are in love with this See You at the Altar card from EmmaMooreID at Etsy.com. When you are feeling nervous on the morning of the wedding, what could be better than reading a romantic note from your future husband or wife to be, reassuring you that everything will be fine and reminding you of the reasons you fell in love in the first place. If you are feeling particularly creative then you could even play poet for the day and pen your loved one a romantic rhyme.
Include Your Partner’s Birthstone in Your Wedding Band
This diamond and blue sapphire ‘Daisy’ ring from Loyes Diamonds is a perfect example of how you can include a birthstone in your wedding band. If your partner was born in September then you are extra lucky as the blue sapphires can also double up as your something blue! If you don’t like the idea a wedding band with colour included then you could choose to wear it as an eternity band that you wear on your right hand throughout your wedding day and then wear alongside your engagement and wedding bands in the future.
Feature Your Wedding Venue on Your Invitations
Give your guests a glimpse of your wedding venue by having it featured on your wedding invitations. These bespoke wedding invites from Appleberry Press feature a hand illustrated picture of Tankardsdown House and are just stunning. Appleberry Press offer a bespoke design service so you could consider featuring your chosen venue on your own wedding invitations, either hand sketched or painted in beautiful watercolour.
Wear a Pretty Pink Hue
Wearing a pink wedding gown doesn’t have to mean you are throwing a Barbie-esque wedding — Kaley Cuoco and Anne Hathaway have both shown how a pretty pink wedding gown can be dreamy and elegant. Consider this stunning ballgown style from Essense of Australia to add a gentle nod to this romantic hue and then you could dress your bridesmaids in darker shades of pink or another complementing tone.
Include Your Names and Wedding Date in Your Outfits
These bespoke labels can be sewn into your wedding dress or inside your suit jacket and are a beautiful reminder of your special day. We love how these ones from ShannahJSmith at Etsy.com can also double up as your something blue on the big day. If the groom has bought a suit that he plans to wear again then this secret label sewn inside will be a lovely reminder of your special day.
Watch Your Love Grow with Seed Favours
Give your guests a recipe for something hot and spicy with these personalised chilli seeds — these and lots of other cute favour ideas are available from Wedding In a Teacup. If chillies aren’t your thing then you could use an alternative idea such as your favourite flower!
Make Sure You Get a Moment Alone
With all the chaos of the day, make sure you get a few moments to spend together either before your wedding breakfast starts or after, just to take a deep breath and think “Oh my god we did it!”. It’s also a great idea to make sure your photographer catches a few un-posed moments of you as a couple.
