You're busy preparing so many details for your wedding, but we want to be sure you don't forget these wedding accessories and wedding extras! These are the items that are most often forgotten when it comes to wedding planning and packing for the wedding.
In this Garter Girl Loves post we're sharing the wedding extras and the little details you'll want to be sure and have at your wedding, with a list to be sure you purchase each item and have it packed for your wedding weekend. (If you need the chicest weekender bags for the bride, we have you covered! Plus grab our list of what to pack for your wedding weekend.)
After choosing your wedding dress, sending the wedding invitations, selecting the floral arrangements and so much more you may feel like you're complete with the wedding purchases, but don't forget the extras for the wedding.
Those extra details and keepsakes for your wedding are so important and make a difference for your wedding guests and your photos. Little extra details such as toasting flutes, a cute card holder, a guest book, a cake knife/server, bathroom amenities signs, something blues and - of course - your garter!
We have you covered with our list of those most common little items that many brides forget - but with they hadn't - for their wedding.
We recommend planning and purchasing the wedding extras 2-3 months in advance of your wedding. This allows you time to shop for the perfect style and order with enough time to receive it shipped in the mail to you before your wedding.
If you want to personalize any of these keepsakes, such as your wedding cake knife, for your wedding, you might need to order even earlier before your wedding. It's never too early to shop for your wedding in this post pandemic recovery with supply chain delays and shipping confusions.
There are so many details that can be added to your wedding. You might not need all of these depending on your specific wedding and venue, etc. However, take this list as a great starting point.
