Your special day is finally here. Friends and family will be coming from all over to share this joyous occasion with you, and whether you’re inviting 10 guests or 800 Salem Convention Center has the space you’re looking for.
Of course, there’s more to a wedding than just a beautiful venue; it should be an authentic representation of the two parties getting married. That is why our trained event staff will work with you through each detail to ensure your wedding is uniquely yours.
Here are a few ideas we have found for brides to add a truly personal touch to your big day.
Offer Guests Your Own Signature Cocktail
Invite guests to try a signature cocktail to commemorate the special day. Whether you already have one of your own, or want our help in crafting one, a unique drink will give your wedding a personal touch of class.
Create A Personal Music Playlist
Do the two of you have a song? What about a concert you attended together? Ask a friend or your DJ to help craft a playlist that tells your story and speaks to you.
Use Personalized Seating Cards For Your Guests
Forget simple name cards on seats; mix things up by using photos, drawings, polaroids, and other interesting means of identifying guests.
Make Your Program Unique
Your wedding should reflect you and so should the program. Are you both comic fans? Newspaper aficionados? Broadway musical enthusiasts? A stylish and fun program will add a strong unique element to your wedding.
Provide Guests With Flower Favors
Offer guests the gift of boutonnieres and flower clips upon their arrival, both thoughtful and stylish!
Give Your Table Numbers Meaning
Elevate your tables by giving the numbers meaning. If you have three cats, show a picture of them at table 3. You live in house #5? Show it off! Let the table numbers help tell the story of you two as a couple.
Give Your Wedding a Unique Hashtag
Nowadays, everything has a hashtag and your wedding should be no different. As guests are taking photos of the event (and they will), they can post them online with the hashtag, collecting all media in one place. SCC can incorporate the hashtag into produced materials for visibility.
Fill Your Centerpiece With Things You Love
Do you have a favorite flower? What about a favorite material? SCC can help create and place centerpieces as an expression of some of your interests and personal style.
Use a Custom Wedding Topper
The wedding cake topper offers the opportunity to inject a little style, a little humor, and/or quirkiness to the wedding.
Use Custom Drink Labels
Forget the old standard labels, print out some unique wedding-themed labels to be placed on bottles instead!
These are just some of the ways Salem Convention Center can help create a memorable, one-of-a-kind wedding. Be sure to visit our Weddings Page for more tips, strategies, and advice to make the most of your special day.
