Bringing your couple style to your wedding
Every couple is unique meaning every wedding should be unique. Gone are the days when almonds are given as favours and a traditional fruit cake is served up for the wedding cake. We are in the time if 21st century couples and accordingly 21st century weddings.
Your wedding is one of your most important days as a couple and not to mention a day you are spending a lot of money on so make it personal. What are you known for as a couple? Ask a few close friends what pops into their heads when they think of you as a couple? You can then interpret certain aspects of this into your wedding.
For example when i think of my sister & her boyfriend i straight away think of their love of red wine and prosecco! and their love of holidays and breaks away. So straight away i think wine glass centerpieces would be perfect for them!

When i think of my brother and his girlfriend i straight away think of a more alternative wedding style. I can easily imagine a cross between feminine wedding touches and the darker more alternative wedding style leaning to their rockier side.

There are some amazing ideas out there for personalising your wedding. Take a look at the below for inspiration. I love this idea of having an aisle runner designed to display key moments throughout your relationship leading right up to the altar.
