Why personalise items at your wedding?

Personalisation adds a unique and special touch to the wedding, making it more memorable for you - the couple - and your guests. It can help to create a cohesive and consistent theme throughout the wedding, which can make the event feel more polished and well-planned.

Personalisation can also be a way for you to inject your personalities and interests into the wedding, which can make the event more meaningful to you.

By personalising aspects of your wedding day, for example wedding favours and decor, you make them more special and meaningful for guests, making them feel more appreciated and valued. 

As such, personalised items make fantastic keepsakes and memories from the wedding for you and your guests, as you and they will be able to look back on them and remember the special day. Just think about some of the lovely personalised touches you’ve kept hold of from the weddings you’ve been to. 


Why use personalised stamps?

Stamps can be a fun and creative way to add a personal touch to your wedding. Here is a guide to using stamps as part of your wedding:


- Choose the right stamp

When choosing a stamp, consider the size and design that will best suit your needs. 

  • Wooden handle stamps are traditional and have a classic look
  • Self-inking stamps are more modern and can save time as they don't require a separate ink pad
  • Clear stamps are also an option: acrylic stamps that can be used with an acrylic block are easy to store and also easy to align
  • And don’t forget embossing stamps which can punch your design onto card, paper and other materials for a tasteful, premium look


- Decide on a design

  • Consider the overall aesthetic of your wedding when choosing a stamp design. You can choose from a wide variety of designs, such as florals, monograms or illustrations. If you want something truly unique and personal, why not customise your stamp with your names, wedding date, or a special message?


- Plan for usage

  • Rubber stamps can be used in a variety of ways throughout your wedding. For example, you can use them on your invitations, place cards, thank you notes, or as a design element on wedding favours or decorations. You might even create stamps to be used by your guests on the day - in your guest book or elsewhere. Just make sure you plan ahead to ensure you have enough ink and paper to use the stamp throughout your wedding.


- Test the stamp

  • Before using the stamp on important items, make sure to test it out on a piece of scrap paper to ensure the ink is properly aligned and that you are happy with the results. This will help you to avoid any mistakes that may happen in the process of stamping.


- Use the stamp creatively

  • Get creative with the ways you use the stamp throughout your wedding. For example, use it to create unique place settings or table numbers, or to personalise the packaging of your wedding favours.


- Have fun

  • Rubber stamping can be a fun and creative way to add a personal touch to your wedding. It’s an easy and affordable way to create unique and personalised items for your special day so don't be afraid to experiment with different designs, colours and techniques. Involve your partner or even your bridal party in the process to make it a fun and memorable experience. Remember that it's not just about the end result, but also about the process of creating something special.
