If you’re anything like me then you’ve been planning your wedding day for many years. I have a saved folder on Instagram dedicated to wedding stuff and outfits and even on Pinterest, I pin the things I definitely want on my D-day. Yup, I’m pretty much obsessed.
One of the cutest things I’ve seen is how you can personalise your wedding and incorporate themes and decor pieces that either talk about your love story or show a side of your personality. After all, it’s your special day and all your wellwishers are there to bless you and celebrate with you.
From decor to personalisation in your outfits, this list has got it all.
Neon lights are all the trend right now and they look great for photos as well. Have a sign or a quote that you feel close to and ask your decorator to get it made. Trust us, your wedding hashtag on Instagram is going to be filled with pictures in front of this.
If you want something tiny and hidden on your wedding outfit, a name tag like this is great. It’s not in your face but you know it’s there. This way your dupatta will always be etched with the date that it all changed.
Your decor planners can definitely help you with this. The entire aisle has the sweet promises you want to make to each other and it’s going to be the cutest little detail. If not this, you could also have placards of the vows and have your bridesmaids and groomsmen hold them through the ceremony.

Loads of brands now make customised jewellery and it looks so gorgeous. This bride wore a customised nath with her husband’s name on it and it’s warming our hearts. Imagine how special he’ll feel when you’re sitting beside him during the rituals. (Well, he’ll feel special either way but you know what I mean.)
Your mandap deserves a makeover of its own. Have a cute neon light or have a floral decoration with your names, it’ll be perfect.
For one of the pre-wedding functions, you could even wear a lehenga with customised latkans. They look so fun and also make everything so much more personal and strictly about you.
These days customised kaleeras are what everyone is going for. Even Priyanka Chopra wore a customised pair on her D-day with symbols from Greece where Nick proposed to her to a Cross and a Trishul from both their faiths. They even had an engraved silhouette of both of them as well as their fave movie character. It’s basically the whole love story right there!
Customised mehendi also is all the rage these days. With little details from the destinations you’ve both travelled together to times in your life that you knew that this is it… all of that can be made on your hand. It’ll be a fun game if he sits to find all the little things you’ve included in your henna, right?
So brides-to-be, use the quarantine to plan your wedding details to the T!
