The most important aspect should be to let your own style and couple personality shine through this day. Using traditions is a wonderful way to celebrate but the day is your day. So show that you two are together perhaps make a CD of all your favourite songs in a CD that is personalized with your names and celebration date. Whatever you enjoy doing as a couple is a good place to find a remembrance of your nuptials.
When Deryck Whibley and Avril Lavigne tied the knot they used the fact that they are both musicians and gave away guitar picks that said, 'Deryck picked Avril'. So take things you have in common or something pertinent to your relationship and find a give away from that.
Food is always a good memento. Candies in personalised favour boxes, M& M's with your wedding date, or cookies are all fun and flavourful ideas. Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz had cookies for their guests to take home that said, 'eat me'. You can have your date, your names or even your picture with edible ink.
Anything goes when it comes to your special day. Be as fun and spectacular as you want to be. When Rebecca Romijn married John Stamos they had air freshener's with their picture on them and had them hanging in all the cars of the guests when they left. Think about something that will be useful and add your picture to it.
The amount of money celebrities spend on their wedding favours and celebrations is a bit over the top but you can use the ideas to create something smaller scale for your day. And keep in mind that your favours will probably last longer than most of their marriages did.
