Add some serious 'us' to your wedding day with these adorably creative ideas...
#1 Instead of a 'normal' Order of Service or wedding programme, opt for something a bit more personalised.
Think more than just names and dates: add pictures, decorations and more! Click here for more ideas.
#2 Commission an artist to create a gorgeous 'crest' for the two of you.
Crest: Happy Menocal.
#3 Include details that give a nod to family heritage.
#4 Create a time-line aisle runner!
You know you wanna.
#5 Write super-personalised vows.
Dig deep, ladies and gents.
#6 Inject as much HUMOUR as possible.
If you and your partner have a similar sense of humour, then this is a no-brainer. Fill your day with poppy, zany twists that perfectly match your idea of a lol-worthy celebration.
#7 Fill your venue with photos!
#8 Serve up customised cocktails as your guests arrive at your reception.
As well as treating your guests to something delicious, it's also the perfect way to get the party started.
#9 Theme tables around things that are important to your relationship: places, numbers, locations...
#10 Serve up snacks your guests will actually want to eat!
Think throwback snacks and delectable finger-food.
#11 Own a beloved dog? Include him or her in your day!
#12 Other pets also welcome too, of course...
#13 Ask someone you know to make your wedding cake...
...In lieu of a gift (duh). Real-life newlyweds Nadiya and Joe asked the groom's grandma and cousin to whisk up this scrumptious naked bake - see more of their Cornish celebration here.

#14 Use chalkboards to add some extra sentiment to your ceremony and/or reception areas.
Whether used for a timetable of the day ahead or simply for your favourite quotes about love, these are super-sweet (and easy to DIY) additions to your day.
#15 Sing your own first dance song!
No, really - head to the studio and sing the track that you and your partner want to dance to, like this bride did.
#16 BOTH give speeches!
Increasingly, brides as well as their partners are taking to the mic at the reception. Granted, if you're not a fan of public speaking you'll want to give it a swerve but otherwise consider stepping up to say a few words.
#17 Create some DIY games for your guests.
No pressure but this Guess Who idea is rather amazing.
#18 Add a monogram to your dancefloor...
#19 Ask your guests to do something creative in place of a conventional guestbook.
For example: Lisa and Lloyd got guests to create a fingerprint tree and share their advice for married life. See more of their wedding here!

#20 Stage an exit from your reception that is just SO you guys.
Whether it's leaving on the back of a motorbike, beneath an arch of sparklers or to the sound of your favourite Queen song - do it your way!
