Part of the fun of wedding planning is finding all the little details that make your day unique, as the team at Big Little Things explain. Here, they reveal their hot picks for 2014 and share the mini buys that will make a big impact on your day…
Mini heart pegs
One of our most well-liked wedding accessories and with good reason. These cute decorative pegs are versatile – ideal for displaying guest place name settings on glasses, securing photo bunting, as cupcake toppers or simply on their own! The list of cute uses is long! Among the most popular are our shabby chic wooden pegs which are covered in vintage twee ditsy flower material and look fab when displayed in a marquee for a summer wedding. Also our beautifully embossed flower heart pegs look pretty when incorporated into any colour scheme and are lovingly handcrafted and made to order. These little accessories certainly make a big impact.
We love our take on the ever-so-popular tissue paper ‘Pom Pom’ by combining more than one colour into one pom pom. Our tried-and-tested bi-colour and tri-colour pom poms are made to order and enable brides to combine colours in keeping with their scheme in a visually stunning yet affordable way! They look wonderful in all types of venues from marquees to village halls, suspended from ceilings, attached to the backs of chairs or simply stacked on top of one another!
Our paper straws are a fantastic accessory for any party and look right at home on a wedding table. Straws have a retro feel about them (we all like to feel young!) and are a good ice breaker at the wedding breakfast. Cue the best man blowing peas at the new mother-in-law! We supply a huge variety of colours and patterns, catering for every wedding and its chosen colour scheme. Our most recent creation is the butterfly straw which looks truly beautiful! They look particularly good when displayed with our textured heart pegs. Sold in multiples of 25.
Wedding party signs
Our selection our signs are truly popular. First off, the trio of ‘This Way’, ‘Party’ and ‘Welcome’ white wooden signs not only serve a purpose but look brilliant to boot! They can also can be used again after the big day – bargain! Secondly, the engraved natural slate signs can be personalised with the wording of your choice! Signs at weddings are all the rage, they look stunning when adorning a venue, let guest know where they are (always important after a couple of cheeky vinos) but also make memorable wedding gifts, too.
Personalised wedding bell favours
We just love these and so do our brides! Our delightful personalised wedding bell favours work as unique place name settings, beautiful favours and are a real talking point because they are so sweet and different! All guests love a favour that is a genuine keepsake that you actually want to keep! The bell is personalised with silver coloured cubes etched with black lettering and trimmed with metallic thread for a luxury look. We use a variety of coloured ribbons and try to colour match as closely as possible to the chosen colour scheme. We package the bells in individual keepsake organza bags with matching ribbon detail for a little extra opulence! They are gorgeous and a real steal at £3.50!
Beautiful natural confetti is lovely to cast onto the happy couple when they leave the venue or simply scattered over the table tops at the reception. One of our brides had a Midsummer Night themed wedding set within a forest and scattered litres of the confetti along the aisle which looked truly stunning! Because it’s natural (made with Delphiniums and Wildflowers), it’s also biodegradable so you can use as little or as much as you like and not have to worry about the consequences! One litre of petals provides approximately ten handfuls of throwing confetti or for scattering on ten tables.
These brilliant blocks are great when displayed in a wedding reception. A great dressing for a cake table or candy buffet, shabby chic in their style, the wooden blocks that are decorative keepsake for after the wedding too. This is all part of their appeal!
Personalised Mr & Mrs Mugs
A personalised pair of ceramic mugs is an ideal gift for any trendsetting couple. The writing has a fun scribbled effect. They are popular because they are unusual and fresh looking – a little bit different to the norm. But also they are unique because of the personalisation.
