    My bouquet wrap is lace from my maternal grandma's wedding dress and a string of pearls that my fraternal grandmother gave me before she passed. My mom made my garter from pieces of her mother's dress as well. I bought my FH a wolf pin for his lapel, it will represent his grandfather who raised him, he passed before we met, hopefully this gift will make it feel like he is there on our day. Our favors are pomegranates which are a symbol of marriage in Armenian culture.

    The “penny in my shoe” was an Australian penny from 1955. I married an Australian and my grandparents got married in 1955. My grandfather is no longer with us, and when I told my grandmother about the penny and why I picked that year she cried.

    We chose to get married locally, there are basically two large wedding venues (one is actually a restaurant that does weddings, which is where we had our reception) and then a bunch of untraditional venues that are really nice and really beautiful, but didn’t fit our guest list of the vibe we were going for. We did look at a few venues further south, and in Sydney, but decided to keep everything local as much as we could. We had a true “Shire” wedding which was very Us.

    we had an artist paint our wedding, each of our parents and us chose a color to smear around as the base right after the ceremony. Then during the reception he painted the event, and guests got the opportunity to sign it. It is such a special keepsake, something we will get framed and hang in our home, and we can point out our parents and various friends that were painted in.


    Our dog was a guest! We had discussed it but thought it was too hard logistically. Then my husband worked it out with his parents but didn’t tell me. I didn’t know he was coming until I turned around at the end of the aisle and there he was in the front row, looking very proud!

    The pen we used to sign our register was a pen advertising a bar my husband and I went to on our of our first dates. Back in 2008, in NYC he took one of their pens and has held onto it.

    Your touches are so meaningful and beautiful!

    It's just for us but our wedding rings are engraved with 10-10 Always. It is not only a reference to our anniversary but also to Harry Potter which is a favorite of ours and our good friend who passed away. We would not have grown as close as we did as friends if not for her. We'll also have a windchime for her. Before we go to the ceremony and after our guests are seated we will also put up a sign that says "Mischief Managed" as a bit of a magical touch. When we first became more than friends there was this comedian with a whole bit about rubber ducks. We laughed for days over it and started teasing each other with rubber ducks. We will have wedding themed rubber ducks as part of our centerpieces. Lanterns and keys have been symbolic in our relationship as well and have included them in our ceremony and reception.

    That's great. My favorite was the dog of honor.

    We wrote our own vows and they were incredible. My husband is shy and he did an amazing job at making me feel like the most special woman on earth with his vows.

    As a gift, a friend of us personalized Funko Pops and we used them as cake toppers.

    On our cake and desserts table, we included only flavors that we both loved: peanut butter, chocolate, dulce de leche, vanilla and passion fruit. So my caterer made a special selection for us.

    I sang my way to the aisle with a live cellist playing in the background, that was a magical moment and my husband absolutely loved it.

    We got married on the same day.

    My garter was New Jersey Devils since that's my husband's favorite hockey team.

    Our guestbooks were New Jersey Devils and Baltimore Orioles jerseys as they are my husband's favorite hockey and baseball teams.

    Our card box was a little house that my husband made. We plan on buying a house so we wanted to make one for our wedding. It was painted the colors of our wedding.

    Our escort cards looked like hockey tickets.

    Our programs were infographic programs that had a lot of information about us.

    Converses are my favorite types of shoes so I worn them for the ceremony and reception and my husband worn his for the reception. They were decorated for us by our florist/decorator.

    The groomsmen/bridesman had special mugs to drink out of that looked like baseball bats.

    My parents eloped because my dad's entire family threatened not to attend their wedding if they had alcohol so they canceled the entire wedding. They had a wedding song picked out so I had that song played specially for them to dance to.

    We did a couple's trivia game and the last few people won prizes.

    We had lots of little touches! The most fun ones were our cardboard cut out of our beloved cat, Lego minifigure escort cards since my family are big Lego fans, and lightsaber photos for my husband who is a Star Wars super fan. We also entered the reception with the lightsabers and had a little "fight" with them!

    I love that! I think the bouquet wrap is such a great way to personalize your bouquet. My husband wore an elk antler lapel pin that I gave him too! I love the pomegranate idea, so fun!

    WOW! Was the penny hard to find? I love the painting idea, we looked into that but could only find one for $1,000 minimum and it wasn't on our "must have" list. It will be so nice to hang in your home! Adorable, I obviously love the dog guest!

    So awesome! I love all the sports touches. My husband put my garter around a football & tossed it, I liked that a lot more than the traditional flinging it haha! Our programs were similar. I'm a HUGE program fan at weddings, I love when couples have them!

    Your BAM is what gave me the idea! My FH loves to hunt too but doesn't get to go out much. I thought what a special touch it would be to have his grandfather who taught him everything be close to him on our day.
