Weddings are the beautiful joining of two individuals, two families and, sometimes, even two cultures. Planning a wedding that incorporates personal elements to make the day unique and paying homage to the cultures represented in the new union is a beautiful sentiment.
Many engaged couples want to incorporate their culture, or cultures, into their wedding. These special elements are often among the most meaningful moments of the wedding day. Incorporating your culture into your wedding day can range in scope from some couples choosing to hold two separate ceremonies, down to simply including some cultural foods on the reception meal menu or playing a certain song or style of music at the reception. Regardless of how grandly or simply you want to incorporate your culture into your wedding day, personalized wedding accessories are a great option! A special design on the custom wedding cups or a fun phrase on the cocktail napkins can be the perfect way to recognize the cultures represented on your wedding day.
It’s important to think creatively when adding cultural significance to your wedding accessories. There are some designs that clearly reflect a certain culture, like the stunning Double Happiness Drink Coasters, from For Your Party’s Modern Chinese Palette. The vibrant red foil stamping on the watercolor sunrise cocktail napkin is both gorgeous and a sweet reference to Chinese language and culture.
Of course, there are other, more subtle, ways to incorporate your culture into your wedding accessories. For example, the traditional rosemary branch included in Croatian weddings can be represented in a hand drawn wreath design on your custom wedding cocktail napkins. Another option is the Royal Wedding Reception theme, where you can tip your crown to the mother country, all while enjoying the lovely personalized wedding accessories.
For a light-hearted design that incorporates your Hispanic culture, the "Dijo Que Si!" coaster is a great choice. The custom printed wedding coasters are of great quality, and they can even serve as a wedding favor! The design is available in matchbooks and frost flex cups, too, so you can extend the design to other personalized wedding accessories, too.
However you decide to incorporate your culture into your wedding accessories, be sure to have fun! This is your day, and you are free to celebrate in the way that is unique to you! So serve margaritas at your reception if that is what you want, add a Jewish wedding tradition and a custom wedding cocktail napkin to match, or serve that homestyle southern fare! It’s your wedding, and the cultural references at your wedding may just become your guests’ favorite part!
