Your suppliers are booked and prepped for your big day and imagine your excitement when you realise you still have money left over in your budget! The caterer is paid. The photographer and band are booked. The florist has a perfect plan for the flowers. What is even left to add to your big day?
Take the extra money and add a little more luxury to your momentous day!
Enhance your chuppah:
Adding flowers, greenery and/ or lighting to your chuppah is a fabulous way to use extra money from your wedding budget. The floral designs and colours can be easily matched to your decor. Flowers can enhance your chuppah by making it look chic and adding some greenery makes a venue feel welcoming. Adding lights to your chuppah will offer extra lighting for your photographer and a whimsical feeling your guests will be talking about for days.
Supply dancing shoes for the ladies:
Every woman who has ever been to a wedding knows how much feet ache by the end of the night. Don’t make your guests sacrifice style for a painful night. Set out a beautiful basket of flip flops to match your colours and decor.
Signs at weddings are wonderful. They are eloquently designed art that can be kept as home decor forever. Glass, wood, metal and even mirrors are just a few of the possibilities to add to the loveliness of your day. The added bonus of having a keepsake to display to remember your special day is doubly beneficial.
Rent a Selfie Pod:
Selfie Pods today are amazing!! This includes great lighting and wedding-themed props. Your guests can go home with their photos and you will have a copy too so you will have all the memories of your friends and family on your special day! Of course, the images will be available online as well!
Add something to throw as you and your new spouse enter the ballroom:
Long gone are the days of rice throwing…uh…apparently it didn’t agree with the bird digestive tracts. I guess we will stand with the birds on this one, but there are still beautiful options to add to your festivities as you depart the ceremony. Having your guest throw dried lavender, rose petals, heart confetti or even mini pom-poms is a great way to add festivity to your wedding. . If the idea of having things thrown at you doesn’t appeal to you, your guests can blow bubbles, hold sparklers, or even twirl ribbon wands in your direction.
If you are already a wedding genius and had these items in your budget and STILL have money left over, my hat is off to you. You are a hero of heroes! Take that trophy money and add a fun excursion to your honeymoon!!
