When it comes to planning the perfect wedding day, every last detail counts. While finding a dress and scoring the dreamiest venue will take up most of your time, it’s the little touches that bring the whole celebration together and make everything look complete.
While you’ve probably had your jewelry picked out since before you got engaged, have you given much thought to table decorations or gifts for the groom? Even the best wedding planners in the business can overlook last minute details, so here are six must-have wedding accessories to add to your list.
As well as table numbers, place cards and decorations, you may wish to add wedding favors to your table settings. The options for cute wedding favors are practically endless. Examples include chocolates, small plants, personalized shot glasses, tote bags and even stickers. The idea is that your guests will have something to take home with them to remind them of the occasion.
Wedding Chair Décor
Although they are easy to overlook, the chairs at your venue will play a vital role in your wedding. Not only will guests sit on them while you’re exchanging nuptials, but they’ll also dine on them, sip drinks on them and take to them when they need a break from the dance floor. Therefore, it makes sense to decorate them to match your venue and wedding theme. How you decorate your chairs will depend on your chosen venue and theme. For instance, if you’re planning a shabby chic wedding, you could make bows out of burlap for your chairs. UK Wedding Savings provides affordable, stunningly picturesque venues to suit any theme.
It’s easy to forget that summer days can cool down and the sun doesn’t always come out for your big day. Although you’ll want to show off your stunning bridal gown, don’t forget to accessorize with a wrap or jacket in case you get cold. The right accessory can add a little luxury to your overall look, so start pinning some ideas now!
Wedding Direction Signs
Depending on where you’re getting married, it’s probably a good idea to stick up some direction signs to avoid confusion on the big day. These signs can be as cute as you like; the idea is that they point your guests in the right direction for parking and restroom facilities, as well as toward the ceremony and reception.
This fun wedding tradition can easily be forgotten, but it’s one that will make you feel extra special on the day. There are tons of options available, such as lace and diamante garters. You could even wear a vintage garter as your “something old.” Just make sure you buy two so you can take part in the garment tossing tradition and still have one to keep.
A Gift For the Groom
It’s common for the bride-to-be to receive plenty of gifts on her wedding day, and it’s easy to forget that it’s the groom’s special day too. Make your other half feel extra lucky by getting him a small token that lets him know you’re looking forward to marrying him, such as a hand-written note, a piece of jewelry or a cozy pair of socks “for cold feet.”
