This is where those little touches that can make your wedding extra memorable come in.  Let's have a look at what you can do to make your wedding extra special for you, your groom and the guests.

A wedding cake idea

Be proud of your heritage and your partner's heritage and culture by serving a wedding cake that celebrates this. If you are Italian, one of the most popular Italian wedding cakes is called Millefoglie make up of layers of flaxy pastry with whipping cream and berries, whilst a German wedding cake is a rich nut or genoise sponge cake which is soaked in liqueur or syrup. A Caribbean wedding cake is made with fruit and laced with rum.  Go to town with the heritage decor too - a Welsh dragon on our wedding cake was an idea we considered! Take your heritage and traditions and make them perfect for you and your partner.

Prom dresses make great bridesmaids dresses

This is a great idea especially if you are on a budget. Prom dresses can be bought at a fraction of the cost of a bridesmaid dress. Many prom dresses can be bought on the high street or find your prom dress online. Just choose a colour and then the bridesmaids can choose a style and shape to suit them.  The bride is happy and the bridesmaids are happy, it's a win-win all around.

Wedding speeches 

A memorable wedding speech by the bride, groom or significant others will make your wedding day extra special.  There are plenty of examples online. Grab their attention at the beginning, make the audience laugh, say something sweet and don't embarrass the bride and groom. Deliver the speech like you are telling a story and make it personal too. No pressure then!?

Include your pet on your wedding day

Include your pet on your wedding day. Now dogs are the easiest here, but you could include any animal within reason. Pop a bow tie on your dog and he can be by your side, or have a lifesize cardboard cutout if he gets overexcited. Include your pet in your stationary or cake topper, there are some great customisable ideas on Etsy.

Create your own personalised photo book

You probably have organised a photographer but sometimes the nicest photos of the wedding are those informal moments taken by the guests. Wedding photo sharing is easier than ever by using a website or app to create your wedding album from guest uploads. Then print out the best in a photo album with personalised comments too.

Customise your wine

This is a cool idea for favours. Have a customised wedding label with your wedding date on mini bottles of prosecco or sparkling water for the non-drinkers. It's a little something to take away and a little touch that will make your wedding that extra special for the guests. 

Make a favourite song playlist

If you are looking for a way to make your reception special, this is a cool idea. When you send out your wedding invitations, ask the guest to reply with their favourite songs with the RSVP. Then make a wedding playlist for the evening party. It's a little touch that can make your reception extra memorable for the guests.

So here are some little touches to make your wedding extra special.  Have a fabulous day!
