This one is for all the Instagram and Etsy lovers out there.
These days, many small businesses offer their services on the two platforms, specialising in hand-crafted and uniquely designed personalised items: wedding favours, invitations, desserts, dressing room items and more.
While we may pay attention to parts of wedding planning that require us to make conscious choices, such as the cake or venue, many of these little details may slip through the cracks. These smaller decisions may add the perfect personal touch to make your wedding day feel all the more special.

If you’re planning to have a wedding photographer, consider having a pre-wedding shoot for you and your fiance.
Spend time thinking about a particular aesthetic or concept you’d like, and search for a photographer whose style inspires you. Would you like a shoot in an open field? Candid photos of you and your fiance? While photographers usually have their individual styles, they may also discuss the photos with you, and capture the images that tell your story.
Additionally, consider which moments you’d like to make sure your photographer is able to capture, and let them know if you’d like to include any details. (For example, a shot of the invitation card or wedding ring styled with some flower arrangements.)
3. Curate a Special Playlist

Another great way of adding your special touch to your wedding, is by choosing music or videos that are meaningful to you and your partner. Your wedding playlist or even video montage may be the perfect backdrop to your event, and may have a lasting impression on you and your guests that day.
4. Create a Social Media Hashtag

Nowadays, you won’t have a wedding without you or your guests sharing a few moments on their social media pages.
Come up with a fun, specific hashtag for you and your fiance’s special day so family and friends can find each others’ photos and enrich their digital experience for an added bit of fun!
With a few ideas, your wedding can be curated perfectly for you and your partner on your special day!
