We’ve been looking at all the little extras that make each Wedding Unique to each individual couple. We asked you guys to share with us some of the little extras that have made someone’s Big day Extra special to them. Here are a few of our favourite finds…
In the style of a true fairy-tale wedding, one of our brides offered their guests a pair of slippers to ensure that they would dance the night away in full fluffy comfort. It may not have been Cinderella’s glass slipper but I can imagine this was most (particularly female) guests’ dream come true! These Fluffy extras doubled up as a wedding favour, one that I may add is practical and will forever be remembered.
I recently attended a Beautiful Family Wedding in Hayling Island, earlier this month. A truly glorious day from start to finish, from the Gorgeous scenery to the mouth-watering canapes. But the one thing that literally stuck in my mind (and my hair) was a tiny little heart shaped vile, filled with bubbly goodness. Substituting the simple concept of confetti to a fun and elegant replacement of BUBBLES, brought laughter and excitement to an already Love filled day.
We had a lovely comment from Wedding Vendor Claire Scott, who shared with us her Special Wedding moment:
“Hello I am a wedding vendor but also just recently married.
My company is called illumin8 and this was my special touch to my big day.
It added such a nice touch to our day and the photos were awesome!”
A few years ago I attended another Family wedding, which to this day still leaves me with the warmest feeling inside. Not because of a particular “little extra”, but for the multiple additions that made the lovely couples’ Big day just as special to their guests as it was to them. From the day I received their handcrafted invitations, I knew we were heading for an incredible day… but Incredible was the biggest understatement. From the flower displays, the cake, the food, THE DRESS… I could type all day and maybe (with permission) I’ll do a full feature so I can justify how extraordinary this beautiful day was. But what I can do is share with you one of the many extras that blew me away!
– The Glassed Stained Tipi :
It’s not every day you attend a wedding in a Tipi and this was special in itself. But the particular extra that remains in my mind (and on my wall), was a handmade, glass stained, wedding favour, in the shape of the Wedding Venue. This unique creation was constructed and decorated by the couple themselves. To top it off, what appeared to be a regular personalised place mat, magically twisted, wrapped and evolved into a little personalised satchel to carry your wedding favour home. My words can’t really justify my amazement by this tiny little extra, but the proof is in the picture (below).
Thank you to everyone who messaged and contributed, we’ve loved hearing from you all!
