Traditional or personalized? Should you stick with one or mix in both for your wedding? We think that it’s your day so you do whatever makes you most happy! If you do decide to head down the personalized road, whether it be fully or for just one thing, but have no idea on where to start, Lesner Inn has 8 ways to personalize your big day! We hope you can find some inspiration!
Write your own vows
Even though we feel this is almost a given for today’s weddings, we still want to put it out there! Words directly from the heart of your spouse are things to cherish forever.
These are also very regular at weddings now but what makes them even more personalized is naming them yourselves! Creating your own names from memories with your fiancé could be a fun date night idea before the wedding!

There are so many ideas out there for your guest book! If you love travelling, go for a globe. If you or your fiancé are in the Navy, why not do an anchor?
The bride has her dress and the men, they have their tuxes, but more importantly, they have their socks. It’s the one piece of the wedding day that they get to personalize! It could be a favorite sports teams, super heroes, animals, or anything that the groom wants to surprise his guys with on the wedding day!

Include your pet
Everyone loves dogs, right?! Why not include them in your ceremony? They’d make the cutest ring bearer or the perfect addition to family photos! Just be sure they don’t steal a hors d’oeuvre or two during cocktail hour!
Having a friend perform the ceremony
Have a friend who you want to include in the wedding and is a brilliant public speaker? They can get ordained instantly online and perform the ceremony for you! They might need to write a couple versions of the ceremony speech but there’s a first for everything, right?!
Who doesn’t want a grand exit that your guests will remember for years to come?! Rent a Lamborghini, ride off in a boat, or maybe even a helicopter! Of course, a helicopter may be a little harder but it’s worth a shot!
Switching up the regular numbers for something that speaks to you and your fiancé is such a cute idea! You could range from hobby inspired signs to places you’ve traveled together or even to pictures of you at the age of the table number!
