75 Ways to Personalize Your Wedding

Continued (page 3 of 3)

61. For a Fourth of July wedding, light sparklers and put one in each piece of cake as it's being served.

62. For a summer wedding, hand out small baskets of fresh blueberries as favors.

63. For a fall wedding, use pumpkins carved with your monogram as centerpieces.

64. For a formal Halloween wedding, leave sophisticated handheld masks at each place setting.

65. For fun holiday-season favors, give out snow globes with a photograph of you and your groom inside.

66. For a Christmas wedding, display a gingerbread house and stack wrapped presents as centerpieces.

67. For a New Year's Eve wedding, send invites rolled inside plastic Champagne bottles.

68. Instead of serving hors d'oeuvres on silver platters, consider using wicker baskets.

69. Add an interactive element to dessert with a make-your-own table (try sundaes).

70. Pick a special quote—from a favorite book or song—to put on your ceremony programs or invitations.

71. Make a donation to a cause that's important to you. Leave a sign on the escort-card table so that guests are aware of the gifts.

72. Get creative with groomswear. A tie or socks can reflect the locale (preppy whales in Nantucket, thistle in Scotland, etc.).

73. Create a who's who page in your ceremony programs, explaining your relationship to each person in your wedding party.

74. If you are planning to have an all-night affair, end it by serving a sunrise breakfast.

75. Think beyond four wheels: Exit in a helicopter or boat.
