5 Simple Finishing Touches for Your Wedding

You've checked off all the major items on your to-do list (like venue, food, flowers, and overall décor) as well as the not-so-major ones (including attendant gifts and guest favors), and while you're pretty proud of yourself, it's still just not enough; you want to make sure that your wedding is as special and as “you" as possible. Well, we do too, so we've rounded up some wonderful finishing touches that can help take your wedding from standard celebration to perfectly personalized soiree.

Embellish your bouquet

Think that all there is to a bouquet is flowers, some ribbon or lace, and maybe a pin to hold it all together? Think again! You can make your handheld arrangement sparkle with specially made bouquet jewelry or have it represent a significant part of your wedding story with meaningful charms.

Don't settle for a boring pen

You probably spent a bit of time deciding on the perfect place for your guests to write their names and best wishes (maybe in a guest book, on a picture frame, or on paper leaves attached to a decorative tree), but what about what they'll write those names and wishes with? From fancily feathered to rustically wood-covered, we guarantee there's a pen out there that matches your special day perfectly.

Sip with style

Add a little something special to your basic beverages or signature cocktails. For non-alcoholic drinks, you can find charming paper straws with theme-matching decals, and for mixed drinks, customized swizzle sticks fit the bill.

Add some sparkle, shine, or flutter

There is nothing prettier or easier to add to your day than confetti! Thanks to the personalized and handmade booms created by sites like Etsy, there's almost nothing you can't find matching decorative bits of magic for. Sprinkle some across your reception tables, sneak some in with your flower girl's petals, or include a bit with whatever your guests will be throwing at you as you depart.

Give your favors some flair

While your favors are probably already fabulous, why not give them one final piece of pizazz? Favor tags can say so much more than “Thank You" or your names and the date. They can have fun puns, tie in perfectly with a theme, or glam things up with glitter.
