With so much to plan before the wedding day is here, we know it can be easy to forget about a detail or two — details that you would be sad to have missed. So today we’ve decided to share a list of 9 wedding must-haves to remind you of those special touches you’ll surely want at the celebration. Take a look at our must-have picks below, and be sure to snag your favorites before the big day is here.
1) The Guest Book
A guest book is something you certainly don’t want to forget. Have guests sign their names and write a message either before the ceremony beings or during the reception. That way, you’ll forever have a special message from your loved ones from your big day. If you don’t want to go with a traditional guest book, try something a little quirkier like a guestbook puzzle or a wish jar.
2) Wedding Programs
Wedding programs are the best way to inform guests on what to expect for the day and are especially helpful you if plan on having several events take place. They are also a great source for adding personalization to your big day. You can use wedding programs to not only list out times of events, but give backstories, share photos, and more.
3) A Ring Box
Keeping the rings safe is an absolute must and this personalized ring box is a great way to do so. We also love that it is easy for the ring bearer to carry, beautiful in photos, and makes a special keepsake, too.
4) The Flower Girl Basket
Make the flower girl feel extra special by gifting her a basket that she will not only use at the ceremony but can also keep for herself. Choose a flower girl basket with a handle so it’s easy for her to hold and be sure to pick a style you both love.
5) Wedding Signs
Wedding signs are a great way to make a statement. From a “Here Comes The Bride” sign for the flower girl and ring bearer to carry, to signs that point in the right direction of the ceremony, reception, and more, this is an item that is sure to be helpful to guests in a stylish way.
6) Weather Gear
If you plan to celebrate outdoors, the weather must be taken into consideration. If you know it could be chilly, provide your guests with shawls or heavier blankets. If the weather is going to be warm and the sun is going to be out, provide guests with items such as sunscreen or sunglasses.
7) The Unity Set
Celebrate your commitment in a meaningful way by including a unique unity set in your ceremony. Whether you decide to use sand or candles, this long-used tradition is a symbolic joining of two lives and a ceremony you’ll be glad you included on your wedding day.
8) Lots of Tissues
Every wedding is sure to have its fair share of happy tears — which is exactly why we say tissues are a must. Keep a travel pack in your pocket or bag and be sure to include packs along the aisle for your guests to use, too.
9) Something Special for the Send-Off
Make your send off extra special by providing guests with wedding toss items such as confetti, ribbon wands, poppers, bubbles, or any other fun item you can think of. It’s great for pictures and is a fun way to get guests interacting.
