How to Make Sentimental Wedding Memories
Weddings are a once-in-a-lifetime celebration of love and commitment.
To make your big day truly unforgettable, consider incorporating sentimental ideas that reflect your personality and relationship.
These touches will not only make your wedding unique, but they will also create lasting memories for you and your guests. Here are nine sentimental ideas to make your wedding memorable:
- PERSONALIZED VOWS:
Writing your own vows is a great way to express your love and commitment to each other. Take the time to think about what you want to say and how you want to say it. You can include personal anecdotes, promises, and words of gratitude. This will make your ceremony more meaningful. If you have a videographer capturing your big day, you will be looking back at these words for years to come. Warning: have some tissues handy for these big moments!
- FAMILY HEIRLOOMS:
Incorporating family heirlooms into your wedding is a great way to honor your heritage and the people who came before you. You can wear your grandmother's wedding dress, use your grandfather's pocket watch as a prop, or display old family photos at the reception. This will create a sense of continuity and history that will make your wedding more special. Need your something old or something borrowed? This is a great way to incorporate it!
- SIGNATURE COCKTAILS:
Creating signature cocktails that reflect your personalities and tastes is a fun way to add a personal touch to your wedding. You can name the cocktails after each other or after a special memory you share. This will also give your guests something unique to try and remember. Our bar area here at Bella Luna is ready to be personalized for your special drink.
- MEANINGFUL MUSIC:
Choosing music that has a special meaning to you is a great way to create an emotional atmosphere at your wedding. You can include songs that remind you of your first date, your first dance or a special moment you shared. Take a spin on our large LED dance floor for your first dance and have our DJ play your special song.
- HANDWRITTEN NOTES:
Writing handwritten notes to each other to read before the ceremony or during the reception is a sentimental way to express your feelings. You can include words of love, gratitude, and promises for the future. This will create a special moment between the two of you and show your guests how much you care for each other. Want to make it even more special? Read them back to back before you see each other for a first glance photo opportunity while capturing each other’s faces reading your notes.
Having special dances with your parents, siblings, or grandparents is a touching way to honor your family and create lasting memories. You can choose a song that has special meaning to you or choreograph a dance that reflects your personalities. This will create special moments that you and your family will cherish forever.
Setting up a memory table with photos, mementos, and sentimental items is a great way to honor loved ones who are no longer with you. You can include photos of grandparents, parents, or friends who have passed away, as well as items that remind you of them. This will create a sense of connection and remembrance. Don’t want a table? We have screens in our ballroom you can play the photos on instead!
Giving personalized favors to your guests is a great way to thank them for sharing your special day. You can create custom favors that reflect your personalities or interests. This will also give your guests something to take home that reminds them of your wedding. Special gifts for your wedding party are also a great way to say “thank you” to your friends and family for standing by and supporting you on your big day!
Choosing an exit vehicle for your wedding can be a fun and exciting decision. Some popular options include vintage cars, limousines, horse-drawn carriages, or even boats. When selecting your exit vehicle, consider the theme and style of your wedding, as well as your personal preferences. It's also important to confirm availability and pricing with the rental company, and to make sure the vehicle is large enough to accommodate your wedding party and any necessary decorations. Ultimately, the right exit vehicle can add an extra special touch to your wedding day and make for a memorable exit as newlyweds. If a limousine or party bus is right for you, we have a great vendor we would love to share with you!

These touches will not only make your wedding unique, but they will also create lasting memories for you and your guests.
