Hi bee, some things on my ‘small detail’ list;

– Personalised hangers for bridesmaids (just made these myself as I think they’re nice for photos)

– Cake knife (my venue doesn’t have one!)

– Ring cushion (again just nice for photos)

– Confetti canons

– petals for flower girl to scatter

– nice umbrellas (UK wedding so likely to rain!!)

– nice pjs for morning to get ready in

I hardly got any of the small things… It’s up to you though, I just tried to get things that we would use again or things that we could have in our house (ie. cake toppers were ‘Pops’ of Belle and the 10th Doctor… cause they are some of our favourites and we would have them in our house).

‘Little things’ I was worried I would forget:

Ring book (didn’t want a pillow- we used a hollow book cause we will reuse it)

Something to put cards in- we used little fake travel chests cause we had a honeymoon fund

Decorations for the card table

Cake topper (we used ‘pops’ pf Belle and the 10th Doctor… cause we may have a collection and picked pops that kind of looked like us). We used the venues knife to cut it…

Decorations for the table

Seating plan

stuff for the boys- ties, socks (cause I got that too…)


Things other people used that I was tempted by:

Cake serving set

Pretty toasting glasses

guest book

present for the MOB and MOG

umbrellas- forcast with a week to go was POURING rain, and it was 39c! Hottest day of the Summer holidays!

pretty ‘getting ready’ and night of stuff

garter (not my thing…)

a whole lot of stuff I found on etsy and resisted somehow!

We somehow COMPLETELY forgot about the card box until the day before our wedding. The venue had one they let us use, but it was pretty generic…and at the end of the night they took it back and dumped all our cards on the table without telling us…good thing nobody stole them!

Here’s the list of small things I keep forgetting about/almost forgot about:

folders for the ceremony readers
vow booklets for Fiance and I (we’re writing our own)
signage (hashtag, cupcakes, etc)
card box
table numbers
restroom baskets
cake knife 

We got toasting flutes as an engagement present, which was lovely because I wouldn’t have even thought of that!
