We’ve seen a lot of beautiful weddings in our time, but sometimes the little wedding details really stand out. We picked some of our favourites for you to like, love, and steal for your own big day.
15 Wedding Details You Haven’t Thought of Yet
The morning coffee run
We love this idea for coffee on the morning of the wedding. This bridal party got their caffeine fix and a brilliant wedding photo for the album in the process – thank goodness the barista had neat handwriting
For the sniffles
What a great idea to hand out handkerchiefs before the ceremony. Saving your mother and bridesmaids from mascara smudges, and hiding your dad’s tear or two as well.
Why not gift yourself or have a close family member design you your ‘something new’ in the form of a bespoke sparkly hair slide or a stylish pair of silver droplet earrings to complement your bridal look. Master Jeweller Michael Platt offer a bespoke design service for the most personal jewellery tastes.
We love a rustic, country-inspired wedding with the reception decorated with wildflowers, mismatched fabrics, and so on. But why keep it for just the wedding reception? Decorate your ceremony venue to kickstart your rustic day.
Flowers and flags
The confetti shot is definitely a favourite for the wedding album. Why not add to the excitement by having little flags for guests to wave, too. A guaranteed hit with the kids at the wedding, these flags would also be a good idea if your venue doesn’t allow you to throw confetti.
We can’t get enough of this personalised double-decker. What a great way to travel around on your wedding day in such style.
Games like sack races, Giant Jenga and Twister are so easy to organise, and not too expensive, either. It will keep your guests fully entertained – and not just the children.
Hiring a caricaturist to walk around your tables during your wedding reception is a fab idea. It’s great fun, and your guests will be able to take the picture home as a unique wedding favour from the day.
Guestbook wedding details
A guestbook is the place for all the guests to wish the newly married couple well in their future together. Isn’t a wishing well a bit more exciting than a book? And the guests get the benefit of making a wish, too… Check out these modern ‘guest book’ alternatives that can become apart of your new home together!

For the thrill-seeking and adventure loving newlyweds, why not hire out some inflatable games? You could stick to some simple space hoppers or go all out with an inflatable assault courser. They’re guaranteed fun for you and your guests, and it is a party after all… just be careful of your dress.
Alternative wedding cakes
We’ve seen amazing cake creations, we’ve seen cupcakes, and we’ve seen cheese cakes, even scone cakes complete with cream and jam. Whatever your tastes or preferences there’s a wedding cake trend out there for you.
Photobooths and props
Photobooths are great to have on your wedding day because not only are they a lot of fun, they also can make up a fab guestbook for you to look back on. The hole-in-the-wall set up like the one below is a quirky take on the traditional photobooth. Make sure you get your photobooth props at the ready, too.
When you’ve been in your heels all day, there comes a point where you just can’t take them anymore. These slippers, personalised with the couple’s names, mean you and your guests can party on, and not worry about blisters in the morning. Alternatively these cost effective dancing flip flops will do the trick.
Thoughtful wedding favours
It’s hard trying to think of the perfect favour that every guest will enjoy, and not just throw away. This couple just knew that these Hangover Kit favours would be put to good use!
