When it comes to weddings, accessories are a must. These include favour boxes, hair accessories for the bride and table decorations. There are a number of ideas available for different parts of the big day and plenty of places to buy them from.

 
 
 

Bridal Accessories

Accessories for the bride include tiaras, bouquets and hair accessories. Not all brides will choose a flower bouquet so there are different ideas available. For those who want to stay away from real flowers, silk or fabric flowers are an option; however, some brides will choose prayer books and family heirlooms to carry down the aisle.

Tiaras are an option for those who are not wearing a veil. They offer something to place on the head and add sparkle to the hair. It is worth looking into the type of hairstyle being worn before buying a tiara to ensure it works with the style.

Wedding Table Decorations

Centrepieces are a must for tables but that does not mean couples need to spend hundreds of pounds. Sets of balloons or table confetti are an option for those on a very small budget. Another option is bird cages, which come in varying sizes and work well with tea lights.

Photography has become expensive and trying to hire a photographer for the full day becomes difficult. Table accessories for weddings often include disposable cameras, which allow guests to take photos of events that they would like to share with the bride and groom. The negatives can be kept and printed as many times as the couple wants after the big day.

There are some items that couples forget about when it comes to table decorations. Place cards and table numbers are among those items. It is possible to have fun with the place names and table numbers. Instead of numbers, it is possible to give each table a name. it is also possible to buy chalkboards or signs for the table numbers instead of the traditional sheets of paper.

Wedding Favours

Traditionally, favours were a small box with a few sweets in; however, not all couples want to opt for tradition. Depending on the budget, it is possible to double up favours with place cards. Photo frames are a lovely gift to offer guests and make it possible to add something different to the day -- instead of writing names it is possible to add photos of the guests.

Wedding Keepsakes

All couples want to remember their big day and keepsakes make that much easier. A keepsake box is something many brides and grooms buy as a way to keep small items -- such as a newspaper from the day of the wedding, place cards, table numbers and table decorations. The guest book is another keepsake item worth buying so guests can write a message to the couple.

It is possible to personalise a guest book. This could be with the names of the bride and groom and the date of their wedding or a personal saying the two share on a metal plaque. When thinking about personalised items, it is important to order them well in advance to make sure they are there for the big day.

Buying Items for Weddings

Shopping online has become much more popular in recent years. There are a number of benefits, including the fact that it is much cheaper to buy online and there is often more choice since it is possible to shop overseas. However, it is important to ensure items are ordered well in advance so they arrive in time, especially if they need to be sent back for any reason.

There are a number of items to think about when it comes to accessories for weddings. It is often worth making a list of everything required to ensure everything is bought in time. This will help to avoid any last minute panics or possibly forgetting something completely for the big day.
