1. Electrical, Rechargeable Lighter

So many candles, so little time! Don't forget the mother of all lighters! This electrical, rechargeable lighter is the best!


2. Cake Cutting Set

This item is included in our Décor Service Package, it's just one of those things that tends to get overlooked!


3. Cake Plates

Numbers 3 and 4 are by far the most forgotten items for Brides and Grooms. Caterers and Bakers don't usually provide them, so make sure you are covered!


4. Cake Forks

It's important to offer strong forks to your guests. You've spent too much money on your event to have flimsy forks!


5. Sharpie Gel Pens

I love love love these pens. They are all that I use now! I try to always have one on me, but you will most likely need multiple on your wedding day for your guest book/sign-in area. They are also the perfect pen for signing your marriage certificate.


6. Carafes

Start your morning off in style with colorful mimosas and these cute carafes.

9. Cute Jar to Capture Rain Drops

Rain is not the worst thing in the world on your wedding day. In fact, it gives you the opportunity to do something extra special! Grab these cute jars and fill them with the rain water. Use the water to water your first Christmas tree as husband and wife, or for your baby's first baptism. There are so many cute opportunities here.


10. Bridal Dancing Shoes

Girl, your feet are going to hurt. Don't forget to pack some flats for the dance floor! These bridal shoes are PERFECT! Just be sure to let me know if you order some and I will be sure to not wear mine at your wedding! ;)


11. Vow Books

It's a great keepsake, and it allows for beautiful detail shots. If you plan to write your own vows and read them during your ceremony, these books are the perfect choice.


12. Toasting Flutes

Enhance your Toast Photos with nice toasting flutes. These are perfect for the Bride + Groom- even the wedding party too!

Is your Photographer going to photograph your dress or the Groom's suit? These luxury hangers are a perfect minimal look that you can use even after your wedding day.

Reserved Signs should be easy to see. These are my favorite! They can be placed at Ceremony or Reception, then we can easily remove them when they are no longer needed.


15. Ring Box

If your rings did not come in a beautiful box, order one of these beautiful velvet ring boxes. Perfect for the Ceremony (Best Man has to hand them over at some point) and detail shots!
