Don't forget these essentials when planning your wedding


Your wedding is one of the most important days of your life, and as such, there is a huge amount of pressure and preparation beforehand to ensure that it runs smoothly without a hitch. However, with all the invites to send out, dress fittings to organize, and vows to write, certain things can easily slip through the net that, whilst seemingly minor, can make all the difference between a good wedding and a great wedding. Read on to find out more about some essentials that you shouldn’t forget when planning your wedding.


Boutonnieres and bouquets

It’s tradition for brides to walk down the aisle holding a bouquet of flowers, later tossed for bridesmaids to catch in an attempt to predict whose will be the next wedding. You can choose to coordinate your bouquet with boutonnieres for male members of the wedding party. A boutonniere is a small flower arrangement, usually a single flower, worn on the left-hand lapel of a tuxedo jacket. You could create your boutonnieres using the main flower of the bridal bouquet. Roses, for instance, are popular options due to their connotations of romance and everlasting love.


Engagement ring

Your attention before the wedding is probably taken up by finding the perfect wedding ring – after all, exchanging rings is an important part of the ceremony. However, forget about the importance of your engagement ring. This is something that you are likely to want to wear alongside your wedding ring as a stacking set, symbolizing the love and commitment you and your spouse have for each other, so it is important that you choose the right engagement ring for you. Find one that matches the metal of your wedding band: a gold wedding ring alongside a platinum engagement ring will look mismatched.

Wedding favors

Wedding favors are small gifts given to your guests as a memento, and thank you for being a part of your special day. Traditionally, sugared almonds would have been given; however, you be more adventurous in handing out unique wedding favors. A wedding scented candle is a nice gift, or how about a packet of customized tissues for the inevitable happy tears? Furthermore, make sure that guests don’t leave without a slice or two of the wedding cake to enjoy when they get home.


Biodegradable confetti

It is a tradition for the guests to throw confetti on the bride and groom as they leave their ceremony as newlyweds. However, ordinary confetti can be dangerous for wildlife and litter the surrounding environment. To avoid these problems, make sure that you equip guests with biodegradable confetti. This is made using natural flowers, which are dried and treated to preserve their natural colors. As well as being kinder to the environment, you can choose the type of dried flowers included in your confetti, enabling you to perfectly coordinate with your color scheme if you so wish.
