Ring cushion by My Billet Doux with wedding rings and a love letter Credit: Gareth BuddoWith many couples now holding a smaller, more intimate wedding than originally planned, we asked luxury Yorkshire gift company My Billet Doux how you can incorporate more personal touches into the wedding day... 

We're a luxury gift and furnishing company selling gorgeous silk ring cushions, charms and personal trinkets. Incorporating sentimental touches into your wedding will ensure that you have extra memories and keepsakes of the day. These are lovely things to photograph and will touch your guests too. Here are three ideas...

- A handwritten letter. This will never go out of style; handwriting is part of someone's identity and is instantly recognisable to the recipient. We make silk cushions adorned with antique ribbons with a secret pocket containing a notebook and pen for you to exchange heartfelt messages. You could send one to your loved one on the wedding morning to show how much you care. A family member can also write a beautiful note of good wishes and leave it in the cushion.

- Names, monograms or the family crest. Have you ever seen initials carved into a tree? It immediately sends romantic vibes. There's also something special about have names, initials or a crest displayed at a wedding; it makes the room look luxurious and elegant. Add them to the invitations and then to the thank you stationery after the special day. In your styling, they can be added to aisle runners, decor, cocktails, favours, napkins or cake toppers. We can also embroider them into a ring cushion and customise the colours and ribbons.

- An item of jewellery. Being given or lent an item of jewellery that belongs to someone close is truly magical, and it adds the something old and something borrowed element to the wedding. It's a great talking point and creates a lovely lineage and a new bond between families. There's something sentimental about have a piece of jewellery from the past and giving it attention again while creating new memories. Write a lovely note with the card provided in our envelope cushion and place the item in the pocket.
