Wedding planning can seem like an endless stream of detail-oriented decision making, and each one is as important as the next. From the selection of music, to the dining and catering options, to the flowers, and perhaps most importantly, deciding the wedding venue, you will want to ensure that every aspect is in line with your vision. While there is an abundance of information available to assist you in the planning process, don’t forget to make your wedding your own. By infusing your own unique personal stamp and style into the event, you will create a truly memorable day.

How to personalize your Bay Area wedding


Take care to wear something that compliments your taste and preferences. If the event is casual, you won’t need to dress in formal attire simply to impress your friends or please your great aunt. Want to wear personalized sneakers on your wedding day? Go for it! On the other hand, feel free to dress to the hilt if that is what makes you happy.


You will wear your wedding ring for the rest of your life. Make sure you choose a design that perfectly reflects who you are as a couple. If you can’t find a style that satisfies both you and your special someone, consult a jeweler about designing your own rings.


Do you plan on having a traditional ceremony but still prefer the presence of contemporary music? Ask a violinist or a string quartet to remix your favorite modern songs to combine contemporary style with a classical/orchestral feel!  

Wedding Venue

Your wedding venue is another vehicle to leverage in order to reflect your lifestyle and preferences. Instead of choosing a boring location for your wedding day, opt for a venue that will really make a lasting impact on your guests. Since you are getting married in the San Francisco Bay Area, why not choose a quintessential local setting? A wedding on the water is perfect for such an event, and you and your guests will truly remember such a special experience.


This day in age, everything is done digitally! Therefore, it is important to document this day online by using custom hashtags you came up with on various social media platforms. This allows guests to have easy access to everyone’s photos and also allows you to have your own special branding in the virtual world!

Personal Pictures/Video

Pictures speak a thousand words and a thousand memories. So remember to capture as many photos as you can during this beautiful event! Ask guests to film a short video message or have a photo booth setup. This will surely bring about some tears of joy!

Everybody gets Ink

You can create special (temporary) tattoos that combine both your names, and have them available all over the venue. Seeing everyone with your special stamp will surely be an exhilarating experience and add to the environment!
