The big and little things to include in your wedding

Wedding planning? Here are a few of the finer details to think about in the lead up to your big day.

The 2022 wedding season is in full swing, with celebrations big and small underway across the country. But if you’re a 2022 bride or groom still counting down to the big day, keep reading!

When the big stuff is out of the way, the venue is locked in, food and drink packages have been selected and the dress is hanging in a room on standby, it’s time to hone in on the finer details that will make your day uniquely yours. 

We’ve compiled a list of the big and little things that you may want to consider in the run up to your big day. 

Shine bright with beautiful bridal accessories 

You may have already snapped up your wedding bands, but to complete the look you may want some additional pieces of jewellery or a glitzy hair accessory. Michael Hill, Goldmark and Bevilles offer delicate earrings and necklaces that will add, rather than take away from, the star of the show i.e. your dress. 

You can also be photo ready while getting ready with personalised satin robes for the bride tribe on the morning of the big day. 

Design your dream wedding 

When it comes to wedding decor, the costs can really add up. Flowers are traditionally an important part of weddings, but you can change things up to suit your style and budget such as opting for synthetic or dried flowers. 

If you’re doing a DIY wedding, you may require chair sashes, linen napkins, cutlery, glassware and dinnerware that fits in with your wedding aesthetic. Ikea, and Temple & Webster are just a few of the retailers offering extensive choice on the tableware front. 

To add a little romance and create your dream space, you might want some candles (Note: most venues will require glass holders or lanterns for safety purposes!) festoon lighting, message boards or letter signs.  

Show your appreciation with personalised gifts

The bridal party can have a lot of responsibility in the lead up to the wedding and on the day. And while you may have opted to buy the dresses and suits, it doesn’t hurt to offer a small gift to say thanks for all they’ve done. If you’re not sure what to get, and strapped for time, you can’t go wrong with a gift card

You can let your guests know how much you appreciate them being there by adding Bombonieres, and go a step further by personalising with their name. Just don’t forget the wishing well!

‘It’s like raaaain on your wedding day…’

If you’re planning outdoor festivities, don’t let La Nina rain on your parade! it’s not too late to snap up a marquee or gazebo at an affordable price. You can choose from numerous retailers such as Camping Swag Online, Catch and Factory to Home, with a range of different sizes available. And don’t forget to stock up on some clear umbrellas to keep yourself and guests dry as you move between locations.
