15 Ideas for Using a Cricut Machine to Personalize Your Wedding

Weddings and personal details go together like the world's best peanut butter and jelly sandwich ever. Any chance that a bride or a groom gets to share his or her personalities and interests through wedding favors, signage, lawn games, or more, it's probably going to happen because it really is one of the most important days of someone's life surrounded by the best people. That's why we were so excited when we learned about the magic that is Cricut months ago because game changer, friends! It literally has us wanting to personalize all the things. And we're not talking about only vinyl awesomeness! Did you know you could cut felt? Yup. Balsa wood? Heck yes. Or even write addresses on your wedding invite envelopes? Ohhhh, mindblowing you betcha. In partnership with Cricut, we have rounded up our top favorite and easiest wedding ideas for you to take your personalization to the next level by using a Cricut machine.




Toasting Glasses for Getting Ready

MATERIALS USED WITH CRICUT: Outdoor Vinyl

Cheers! What better way to celebrate all your ladies than with some personalized stemless champagne glasses? Outdoor vinyl is water-resistant and the toughest of all vinyls out there. Cricut has some great basic colors or you can find the wedding world's favorites of gold, copper, and silver on Amazon. (After you make them, just remind your gals to hand wash their glasses! Outdoor vinyl is strong and mighty, but not immortal!)

Reception Chair Signs

MATERIALS USED WITH CRICUT: Vinyl

One of the biggest classic trends in the wedding world that has been around quite some time are the newlyweds chair signs. Whether it's "Bride and Bride" or "Mr. and Mrs." signage, there's something about this little detail tradition that people can't get enough of. Most couples either stick with signs made out of wood or thick paper, and those are perfect to personalize with your own wording or couple's message! Going nautical? "His Mermaid" and "Her Captain." Going fairy tale? "King" and "King." Possibilities are endless when you know which vinyl color matches your color theme!

Wedding Favor Tags


MATERIALS USED WITH CRICUT: Adhesive Foil, Balsa Wood

Like most Southern brides and grooms, we sure do love us some monograms... it's probably our most favorite part about using the Cricut machine! It's pretty much monograms on demand, all day, every day. Not only were these modern monograms on the favor tags cut especially for her wedding, the bride also cut the boutique shape of the balsa wood tags, too! (If using balsa wood or other thicker materials like it, be sure to use Cricut's deep cut blade in the machine!)

Reception Seating Chart

-- see the DIY tutorial --

MATERIALS USED WITH CRICUT: Cardstock, Vinyl

With so many ideas out there, couples no longer have to stick with poster board or traditionally framed seating charts for their guests. For the DIY magicians, you can play with acrylic, wood, fabric, and so many other materials to help organize and communicate to your guests on where they will be seated. The particular example above is perfect for a beach wedding because it's heavy, shows off the oceanside scenery, paper is inside of the acrylic frame and won't be messed up by the sand or wind! So think of venue logistics before deciding on your material and explore cutting out various materials to make your seating chart happen!

Table Numbers

MATERIALS USED WITH CRICUT: Vinyl

From familiar street names to cities visited together to traditional numbers, wedding table numbers help communicate to your guests where to sit (and you'd be surprised by how many do appreciate guidance with this instead of the awkward "Uhh where do I sit?" looking around!). Have a little fun with designs, names, and symbols on wood, metal, plastic, fabric, and even glass bottles. Cricut has vinyls of all colors to make creativity even more accessible. The hardest part is figuring out what you want to do!

MATERIALS USED WITH CRICUT: Felt

Felt is not just for kiddo crafts! It's such a versatile material that allows you to literally create beautiful sculptures and art with if you so choose. Or rather more simply, adorable cake or pie toppers for your bridal shower or wedding day! Cricut can cut fun shapes and letters out of your felt. The trick? You need to stiffen the felt and use the deep cut blade for crisp cut-outs. (This "how to cut felt with Cricut" article is a great starting point if you go this route.)

Utensil Sleeves for your Rehearsal Dinner

MATERIALS USED WITH CRICUT: Iron-On Lite

Pretty up those flatware sets for your rehearsal dinner! The easiness of iron-on/heat-transfer vinyl is a huge draw especially if you decide to use more luxurious materials like leather or more delicate fabrics like muslin. Cut out your date or design and iron! That's it.

Wedding Cornhole Boards

MATERIALS USED WITH CRICUT: Outdoor Vinyl

Around these wedding parts, cornhole boards are pretty much like having wedding cake at a wedding reception. It's just kinda expected when you have an outdoor wedding! Since they're pretty popular especially here in Virginia, you can find cornhole boards available most anywhere either locally or online. Add you own monogram, wedding date, or wedding logo to those boards and get some coordinating toss bags! (Be sure to get the outdoor vinyl and not regular! It'll last longer at your new home together as newlyweds for your future gaming nights!)
