The Personalized Wedding

Pretty much anything can be personalized these days, and a big trend at the moment is personalizing weddings. Couples are taking monograms to a whole new level and putting their stamp (sometimes literally) all over their big day. And why shouldn’t they? A wedding should be all about the two people being celebrated, and what is important to them. So if that’s a bicycle theme, or cupcakes bearing their likeness, so be it. You can never get away with this again, so go nuts! There can, of course, be overkill, so we’ve waded deep into the wedding waters to come up with a list of truly clever, charming and memorable personalized items perfect for decorating a reception or gifting to a happy, freshly married couple.
