Bits and Bobs for Weddings

Abbie, on June 12, 2021 at 19:13 Posted in Before the wedding 1 20
So, I find the more I read, the more things I discover I might need on our wedding day. What are some less obvious “bits and bobs” you’ve picked up for your wedding?


These are some of the things I’ve recently discovered I might “need”!Ring box (duh lol)Vow book (not note paper...darn 😅)Card box (in my defence, in the UK it’s not traditional to get money so most cards just stay with the gift!)

    Tell me about it! It’s very crazy how they think it made sense. 🤦🏽‍♀️


    Ohhhh makes sense. Good thing no one has allergies in my list. It’s either they eat it or keep it. 😂😂 I like the idea of favours lasting long but can’t think of anything else that we’ll like. Hahaaha

    Oh dear - that’s a huge size difference! 😅


    Decorative cookies are a lovely idea! We have too many food allergies to bake anything, but I think most people love edible favours ☺️

    Ahhhhhh, you’re getting there. That’s good, you have things going. Hahahaa!


    His jacket and vest came big (ordered 42 and in came 52), 🤦🏽‍♀️ he is looking into altering it and he’s looking into buying another. Haha. He’s on his own little mission. 😂😂
    Ahhhhh, that’s a lovely idea. I might be doing decorative cookies. As I cannot come up with any other cool idea. 🤷🏽‍♀️

    There’s just so much to coordinate!! We have our venue and accommodation, and cake topper, but that’s it so far! Starting to feel a bit of the pressure!


    Almost has his suit, hmm 🤔😂
    We’re not doing favours per se, but our place cards are going to be made of wildflower seed paper for people to plant when they’re done with them Smiley smile

    My fiance and I want to have everyone present during our ceremony and not have phones and cameras out. So we decided to make this sign so that everyone understands UNPLUGGED CEREMONY

    Yes, there is so much.


    I really only have my dress, my fiancé almost has his suit (have a little story for you later) 😂 and I have wine bottles being collected to DIY for table decor. The venue is not fully booked yet and catering is waiting on standby once venue date confirmed. Sometimes I feel like I’m running out of time since we couldn’t go to the stores and you should see how massive the line up is since we just opened back. 🤦🏽‍♀️ Anyways… back to the actual message. Yes, I saw a beautiful wood idea (my MOH/sister knows a friend that does wood work and we’re trying to ask him) and loved it. Now it’s time to see if we can do that. Yeah, I saw the puzzle pieces but they are quite expensive. I’ll get there eventually. Hahaha. Are you doing favours?

    There’s just so much to buy!! 😱


    I’ve been looking at some vow books on Etsy - they can get quite pricy but if you dig there are some more reasonable ones!
    I love the idea of getting a matted photo frame and having your guests sign that 😊 or you could perhaps have them sign a a decorative piece of wood - maybe a welcome sign? I’ve also seen puzzle pieces that you then put all together and frame!

    I actually thought about the vow book, card box and ring box too!!!! I am thinking about buying the vow books, where would you get yours from? Also, I’ve been looking at all kind of ring boxes, but don’t know what to get yet. I don’t like the idea of an actual signing guestbook, so I want to get something that I can put up on the wall or on display.

    I got a cake cutting set and a pretty pen holder with pen off of marketplace for $5. My venue has a card box I can use so I'm not worried about getting one. I'm just using the ring box from my engagement ring, it's big enough for both rings and small enough for a pocket. I'll be doing a lot of my own decorations though so I have lots of things that I have bought.

    I honestly don't know but I think it would depend on the venue?

    Ok...so silly question, but shouldn’t the venue have a cake cutting set?! 😅
