Wedding Details: The Little Things

14 Aug

This post is the second in my Wedding Details “series.” This post was written prior to my wedding & honeymoon for readers to enjoy while Chris & I are in Disney. I’ll begin recapping our special day once we’re back & settled from our trip.

Edited to Add – Obviously, the “Wedding Details” posts didn’t go up while I was gone. Please enjoy them (more coming tomorrow!) as Chris & I settle in, & I’ll be back to “regular” blogging soon!

This post recaps all of the “little things” we did to personalize our wedding & make the day special for our guests!

We had ceremony program covers printed by our graphic designer, Kristin. This listed our bridal party, parents, & an outline of our entire ceremony. (This picture was taken before they were completely assembled; blue & purple ribbon was used to hold the cover & interior together.)

ProgramsBubbles were provided to our guests after the ceremony for when we exited the church! The picture makes these look a weird shade of bluish-purple, but they were actually dark purple to go with our color scheme! 🙂

Basket 'o bubbles At our reception, we stocked each bathroom with goodie baskets that had a few “emergency items” people might need – aspirin, Tums, hair ties, etc. – we tried to think of everything!

We ordered personalized cocktail napkins & matchbooks to have out during our reception.

I liked that these gave our reception a personalized touch & was happy that we were able to emulate a similar monogram to the one we used on the rest of our stationary.

Our cake was presented in a self-serve setup; guests could help themselves & leftover cake was boxed up for guests to take on their way out at the end of the evening!

Cake to-go boxes I loved the idea of being able to take some cake for a late night snack, & I hope my guests enjoyed it as well! 🙂

Last, but not least, we put together welcome bags for our overnight guests. Although our reception wasn’t held at a hotel, we had a shuttle provided to and from a nearby hotel for guests who didn’t want to drive home at the end of the evening.

Upon check-in, guests received a bag that include two waters, a bag of chips, a bag of cookies, a candy bar, & two Airhead candies! (Not the healthiest options, but hey, it’s a celebration!)

Welcome bags If you’re married, did you include any of these details on your big day?
