Bachelorette Party: Love Crawl
Here's a sentimental bachelorette party idea: set up a "walking tour" of your relationship. Start with where you met and include where you went on your first date, where you first kissed, etc. Make sure there are plenty of bars along the way. A little gushing is allowed but don't bore people -- include the grizzly details, too, like where he puked after your first drunken fight and where you accidentally bladed over his glasses. Be sure to include former experiences with your guests in this walk down memory lane.

Bachelor Party: Holy Smokes
Pick up cigars with personalized labels for the entire bachelor party. While you're at it, have matchbooks printed with your wedding date (lest you forget!).

Wedding Rehearsals: 5 Personalization Ideas

Your wedding shouldn't get all the special attention -- make all your events uniquely you with these creative ideas.

Drinks With a Twist

Serve up signature cocktails at the brunch. Do you have fond memories of sipping (virgin) Pina Coladas by the pool on vacation? Re-create the concoction -- with alcohol -- for your guests. Do you love Italy and all its charms? Serve up Bellinis (prosecco and peach nectar).

Frame It

Create your own bride and groom photo placemats for the rehearsal dinner: Scan in tons of photos of the couple, from childhood through those awkward teenage years to now, and lay them out in a design program on your computer. Print to the standard placemat size. Or, for the tech unsavvy, simply tape a collage together then photocopy at a reputable shop. You can even laminate them for a fun keepsake.

Goodie Bag

Before you bid your guests adieu at the brunch, send them on their travels with a farewell treat. Think: doughnut holes, gumballs, even mini bottles of water. Place the goods in paper bag stamped with your new address and a note to keep in touch.

Family Secrets

Let them eat cake at the wedding. For the rehearsal dinner, choose an assortment of your favorite finger sweets like his grandma's cheesecake brownies and your mom's M&M cookies. Serve them on cake platters at each table, or for a touch of casual class, ask the waiters to pass the homemade desserts on silver platters.

Proposal Place Cards

Do you have a photo from the night you two got engaged? Use it on the rehearsal dinner place cards as a reminder of the moment that led you all to this event. Added bonus: have someone from each side tell their version of the proposal story.
