2. Execute your idea with your wedding planners

Personalizing your wedding equals storytelling. There are numerous ways to take your guests on board with the concept you have laid out and help them see the personality stamps sprinkled throughout your wedding. Shall we review some of them?


The atmosphere of your wedding can be expressed with concept, music, lighting and decorations. Emerge them in your stories; whether hanging pictures of you and your special one in chronological order along the wedding hall or playing your favorite setlist during the ceremony, it is crucial that everyone would feel like they were walking through your storybook. If you love The Beatles, Let It Be known to your guests that the band’s biggest hits will rock their night. Your passion is football? Ball-shaped decorations and memorabilia of your favorite team would be so much fun.

One of our most memorable projects, Tram and James’ wedding, was heavily based on their love for art. They set the mood for their wedding by using blue lighting and a dark palette to illustrate the bride’s favorite classical ballet play. The backdrop and decorations resembled their passion for classical paintings, especially Van Gogh and Monet’s.

Small details might be less recognizable, but once people notice them, they will find it so alluring. Put a logo of your lovely puppies’ paw on drinking glasses, print the special dates of your relationship on the table cloths, draw the features of your favorite cities, have your guests write wedding wishes on post-it notes,… be as creative as you can!

Hạnh and Đức turned themselves into “The Simpsons” characters on their logo, wearing Vietnamese traditional costumes.

Nhu and Jamie shared a passion for winery so they put label tags on each drinking glass and made a customized drink board as a seating chart for their guests.

Meanwhile, Linh & Hoai had their stationery specially designed – the wedding venue was drawn on invitation cards!

Outfit theme

Probably the coolest way to make your event super memorable. The options are endless, depending on your hobbies.

Customized wedding vows and walk-in

“May the Force be with us, always” would be such a fitting end sentence in the wedding vow between two Star Wars lovers. “I will love you in health and sickness, during regular days and World Cup”, or mix in some iconic lines from your favorite Disney movies. Instead of a formal walk-in, how about a walk-in-and-dance to your favorite love song?
