Create inspiration boards, share ideas with your friends and wedding vendors, get feedback from brides like you, and lots more!
We love when couples add personal touches to their wedding day, but our favorite details are often the ones that really tell the story of their relationship. True, many of your guests may already know some of the details of how you got together, but there may be some who may need or want a refresher. Here are some creative ways to tell your love story:
A Sweet Sign – Display a chalkboard or other signage with a timeline of how you two met and got together.

It's the little details that guests will notice during the wedding reception (besides the food and drinks), which means your table names are no exception. You could take the easy route and do numbers but show off you personality as a couple with names. Here are 5 examples:
Cities and States - Do you both love to travel? Show your guests your favorite vacation spots! See more of Amber & Brett's real wedding here.
