Q & A: Unnecessary Details

Q: What are some easy things to cut back on or remove all together, that my guests won't notice? 

A: There are definitely a lot of extras these days that aren't going to make or break your wedding.  I think the following list would be a good place to start cutting out the details that aren't really necessary...

  • Definitely don't need:
    • bubbles/rice
    • programs 
    • menu cards
    • aisle runner
    • pew/chair decorations and/or sashes

  • Might consider doing away with:
    • favors (most guests forget to take them)
    • table numbers and name cards (let everyone seat themselves freely)
    • boutonnieres and corsages outside of the immediate wedding party (we didn't do boutonnieres or corsages at all for our wedding and it looked fine)
    • limo (borrow a friend/parent's nice car and decorate with "just married" decorations)
