Shopping List: Wedding No-Brainers
You're going to need a few of these! Below are some of our go-to's for items that every wedding needs - votive candles, sign holders, and more.
Everyone looks good in candlelight, especially in the golden glow from mercury glass. We suggest at least 3 votives per table for a warm and glowy effect.
For an organic or bohemian look, we love these mismatched votives. See them in action in our Alaska wedding.
Even the biggest celebrity planners use these exact table number (drink sign holder, menu holder, etc.) stands ALL the time. They are simple and look very professional. I love them for drink menus at the bar.
You're going to need place card holders for table numbers, menus or signs. We like these super sturdy card holders. They're also super easy to use.
If you're going for a more modern or deco vibe, we like these place card holders that are reminiscent of an old school diner.
An affordable and modern option, use these paperclip-style holders to add a bit of depth to flat place cards.
I can't stress how much PEOPLE LOVE THESE. When the dance party is going and glow sticks come out, guests go crazy for them!
Even better than just glow sticks - surprise and delight your guests with light-up scrunchies. Guests will love the fun item to take home (and keep their hair up during a dance party)!
Again, I am always impressed by how popular these items are - your guests will LOVE a light up bracelet or accessory to keep the dance party going. We love these fun ones.
Your venue may not source these for you, and you may need to bring in your own coupes for a champagne tower. We suggest these low and sturdy coupes for a stable but show-stopping champagne tower.
