Top Ten Wedding Accessories you DON’T need

The world financial crises effects us all, even in the wedding industry. The Wedding Times are tough, so the industry works in overdrive, and we get suckered in. Those GORGEOUS pictures splashed across every bridal magazine and wedding blog really convince us we’re not doing it properly if we don’t have all of those exquisite details planned – down to the last monogrammed napkin.

And – I’ll admit – it’s fun. Wedding planning is almost too much fun. It’s like decorating a dolls house. You get caught up in the fantasy and the ‘omigod how epic is that!’ feelings, and before you know if you’ve sped $500 on chocolate wedding favors and you’re eating baked beans for a month.

So for your reading and purse-string pleasure, I present my Top Ten List of Wedding ‘Must Have’s’ you DON’T need.

  • favors
  • garter
  • centrepieces
  • registry pen
  • Save-The-Date cards
  • reply cards
  • button holes and corsages
  • monogrammed socks
  • wedding website
  • toasting champagne/wine

Skull chocolate wedding favors - gorgeous, but unnecessary

I’m not trying to say ‘don’t have these wedding accessories’, especially if they represent something you feel is important or fun. All I want to say is that all of the above items don’t weigh on either the success of your wedding day OR the success of your marriage. They’re optional extras – and can be expensive ones at that.
