With so many products out there to make every wedding unique, the question remains “how much décor and accessories should I truly have”? This question has perplexed brides for years. Naturally the customization of the wedding is going to depend on the budget as well as the wedding theme.

The first place to start is with the wedding invitation? Why start with the invitation you may be asking? Well, your invitation sets the tone for your wedding. It’s the first thing your invitees see and it will be the one item that you will build your entire wedding around. Today you can have boxed wedding invitations, traditional flat invitations, scrolled invitations and more. By picking your invitation first you can mix and match items to coordinate with the look and theme that you are going for.

When deciding how far to go with your wedding decorations and accessories, remember that less is more however small touches can add to the wedding. When it comes to your décor and accessories you can include:

  • Personalized Placecard Holders – If you’re having a traditional sit down dinner at the wedding reception, placecard holders allow guests to know exactly where they are sitting. Placecard holders today can be a traditional card, a customized frame, a beautiful stand or can be unique like a bell, a wine cork and more.
  • Personalized Napkins – While some feel this item is a little too much when it comes to customizations; however the truth is that it is a popular wedding accessory. Customized with the names of the bride and groom or even a special quote and the wedding date, customized napkins are an added touch. The key here is to not go overboard with them. Some brides have found that mixing the customized napkins in with traditional napkins still adds a splash without feeling like your wedding reception is floating in a sea of customized napkins.
  • Table Decorations – Decorating your reception tables is important because this is where most people will spend their time at your wedding. Once the wedding is over, it’s time for hours of fun at the reception so naturally table decorations are important. Items traditionally added on the tables have included customized matches, apothecary jars filled with candy and other items, table lanterns, decorative chocolates, personalized napkin rings and so much more.

As you can see there are so many things that can be added to decorate your wedding from the main service all the way to the reception. How much you should use or how many customized items you should have is going to be a personal preference but just remember you want your wedding to be special and memorable so add big touches in small ways.
