Q. How can we style our wedding with personalised items? Should this be reflected in our chosen theme?

A. Tricia Prince says: There are many different wedding themes that you could pick as a couple and have subtle personalised items added in. One example is to choose your favourite flowers and have them styled in mix-match vessels that you have collected together. These look effective on both long and round tables.

Another idea for flowers is choosing your favourite faux blooms and styling them around lots of areas in your venue, – for example, creating an elegant archway or frame for your cake. You could even have a matching cake pedestal for some added wow factor.

Consider mixing various pieces of furniture together in your chosen theme. You could go for a vintage look, with your favourite cushions or throws scattered around. You could also create a chillout zone for your guests that could surround a gin bar or a retro drinks stand featuring all of your favourite beverages.

Pick a personalised prop and make it a feature on its own table. For example, if your theme is woodland, a rustic postbox will encourage your guests to send you personalised messages and cards.
