There are plenty of traditional wedding accessories and wedding decorations that are needed to create your ceremony and reception. Once you have all of those picked out and taken care of, you may want to add some fun "extras" to add additional personalization and personality to your special day.
There are many different ways that this can be done. Our online wedding store has a few fun ideas for you today which can all be found at WhereBridesGo.com. These may be exactly what you need to put the final touches on the big day and will definitely get your own creative wedding planning ideas flowing.
Welcome Gifts for Guests
Guests are used to receiving favors at a wedding but they will be happily surprised if you offer them welcome items too. For example, our Gold and White Wedding Welcome Bags are perfect for filling with items like local maps and area pamphlets, snacks, and possibly an early wedding itinerary. These bags full of goodies can be left at the front desk for when guests check into their hotel rooms.
Welcome bags could even be displayed at the wedding on a table for guests to grab before the wedding ceremony. As a matter of fact, the welcome bags from WhereBridesGo.com don't actually have the word "wedding" on them so if you have any extras, those can be used for other parties too.
Masks & Hand Sanitizer
If you're planning a wedding right now during the pandemic, there's a good chance that guests will be wearing masks. Having extra masks available for anyone that may need one is a wise idea, but giving away matching themed masks to all of the guests could be a nice addition. It's a nice way to make "practical" also "fun".
Everyone is extra conscious about cleanliness these days too, so little bottles of hand sanitizer with personalized wedding stickers could be a wonderful wedding favor to give away.
Wedding Gear for Pets
For those of you that consider animals more like four-legged family members than just pets, you may want to include them in the wedding festivities. Since weddings are very special occasions, you'll want to find them something fancy to wear and we've got some wonderful wedding items for pets on the pages of our website.
From ring bearer pillows that can be attached to collars to decorative collars to fancy tutus and top hats, we'll have them ready for the runway! (Or more precisely, the wedding aisle.)
To keep any "cold feet" at bay on the wedding day, wedding-specific socks are an adorable gift to give to the groom, the wedding party, and even yourself! The gentlemen can wear them during the wedding, safely hidden within their dress shoes. The ladies can wear their special socks while getting ready before the ceremony and maybe even at the reception if their dancing feet need a break. (We've also got some adorable wedding flip flops at WhereBridesGo.com that are perfect for tired dancing feet too!)
Don't Forget Our Clearance Section!
Before adding any wedding "extras" beyond the necessary wedding items needed, you'll want to make sure that you have plenty of room left in your budget for those additional items to make sense. The wedding deals, sales, and clearance items page on our website is an excellent place to save money on beautiful wedding items.
Our clearance page is full of timeless wedding items that are still excellent additions to any ceremony or reception. They've just been moved to this page of our website because we needed to make room for new-to-our-site items or the inventory has simply gotten low enough that they are almost gone. There is very likely something there that is exactly what you've been looking for and now, you can get it at a discount!
The additional touches that the wedding "extras" we've covered above are a wonderful way to add some uniqueness to your celebration and create special surprises that guests probably won't expect. Browsing our online wedding store will give you even more creative ideas for making your wedding day one-of-a-kind, just like the two of you!
