Adding a certain uniqueness to a destination wedding means finding the right kinds of wedding accessories and other little odds and ends to make it absolutely perfect. There are all sorts of things, which can help add the certain "something" to any destination wedding. However, there are ten particular inexpensive ways that should be considered or even used as inspiration for creating that personalized touch.
1. Customized Wedding Cake Topper
It might not seem like the most important thing, but even the cake topper can be customized for a destination wedding. Whether the wedding is in Hawaii or the English countryside, take inspiration from the destination's surroundings and add them to the topper inexpensively.
2. Personalized Wedding Apparel
When it comes to destination weddings, the bridesmaids and groomsmen can have inexpensive and personal wedding apparel, such as the beach side wedding with tasteful and decorative flip-flops. There is no need to go out to the dollar store and return home disappointed.
3. Unique Wedding Accessories
Speaking of customized wedding apparel, there are also unique wedding accessories you can use to accent your special day without having to go overboard on a "theme" destination. Small touches such as handmade table cards or customized groom cufflinks are all ways to keep your wedding budget reasonable without having to sacrifice personalization.
4. Specialized Wedding Jewelry
There are options out there for gorgeous but affordable wedding jewelry that will match your wedding colors and theme perfectly, contrary to popular belief. Whether it needs to sparkle or be down to earth, there are endless options for elegant and tasteful jewelry and accessories for the bride, Maid-of-Honor and bridesmaids.
5. Memorable Wedding Invitations
The invitations do not need to be designed by a huge printing company in order to be memorable. In fact, invitations personally designed by the bride and groom can be much more unique and welcoming. Destination wedding invitations can tie into the overall theme, such as seashell mementos or scrolls with wax seals.
6. Affordable Wedding Stationery
The guestbook and other stationery should be something that the happy couple can cherish, which is why they are perfect to customize for a destination wedding. There are countless ways to remember the day instead of the common guestbook, too.
7. Customized Wedding Decor
Whether it's fresh flowers from the countryside, braided knots and anchors or something other unique item; customized wedding decor does not have to mean spending thousands on decorations. Also, the scenery of the destination can be great decor in itself.
8. Destination Wedding Gifts
While the couple will be receiving many gifts, why not add a personal touch to party favors for the guests? Or better yet, to the close family attending the wedding. Each gift can be personalized for each person, making it all the more personal during this unforgivable occasion.
9. Cute Flower Girl Baskets
Since wedding accessories happen to be the easiest and most inexpensive to customize, here's another consideration for that perfect destination wedding: the flower girl basket. While flower girls are certainly more traditional, her flower basket does not have to be.
10. Individualized Wedding Candles
No matter what kind of wedding destinations are popular, one wedding accessory that will always be a staple are candles. They are affordable, can be easily customized, and do not always have to be the traditional white candles.
Destination weddings are getaways first and foremost to your dream location, and having the right kind of customized wedding accessories, decor, apparel and more, can certainly be included in your special day without being so costly. All of these mementos and accessories become great inspirations for an unforgivable and affordable wedding day away!
