The Details of Your Big Day

With so many ideas, trends and personal touches that can be added to your wedding day, it can become overwhelming trying to decide what you want to have as a part of your big day and what the bridal magazines can keep to themselves. Some 'extras' added to your big day that are certainly not a necessity can be:

  • Bathroom Baskets - those pretty little holders of personal grooming and refreshing packets that are laid out in the restrooms for your guests
  • Signage leading to the ceremony site - some creative couples have posted signs along the pathway showing guests where the main event will be held
  • Programs, menus and posted signs - expressing your theme in more subtle touches, these extras can be a way of expressing your own personal style as well as mentioning special guests or ceremony rituals that some may not follow very easily
  • Photobooths and Candy Buffets - these hot trends can often 'wow' your guests and give them something to do in addition to visiting and dancing during the reception. They can also serve as a take home favor that most people will truly enjoy
  • Kids Activity Rooms - this concept can often be a saving grace for parents looking to have a good time and misbehaving or bored children looking to go home. Creating an area with party supplies for the little ones to keep them occupied while other festivities are going on. This can include activity books, games, toys, and even a face painter or magician.
