3 Little Touches to Enhance Your Day

What makes a wedding ceremony one of the most special and memorable days of your life? Is it the beginning of a lifelong commitment to your chosen other half? Is it the gathering of all your loved ones in one place? Or is it actually because you get to realise your fairytale dreams and live a fantasy for one day. Obviously it’s the first two but the third is a pretty great perk. This blog is to inspire you to think about the little touches that you could add to your day to make it personal and memorable for you and your guests for years to come.

  1. Restroom Basket

Weddings are often an all day affair. Lots of eating, drinking and subsequently … restroom visitation! It’s a nice moment when your guests walk into the bathroom to find a selection of goodies and useful items to get them through the day.

Our Suggestions:

Bobby pins/Hair grips, Hairspray, Dry hair shampoo, Hair gel, Double-sided (boob) tape, Feminine hygiene products, Clear nail varnish, Nail file, Nail glue, Lash glue, Vaseline, Deodorant, Hand lotion, Mints, Tooth picks, Wet wipes, Baby powder.

Tips for the execution of a restroom basket:

  • When finding your basket, box or container consider the size of the counter or table it will be placed on.
  • Collect sample products from your local drug store to keep costs low. They are also normally a handy travel size.
  • If you’re full to the brim with wedding tasks and planning delegate this task to a bridesmaid or helpful friend.


  1. Happy feet

High heels + lots of standing/dancing = unhappy feet. Flip flops or slippers can provide relief to allow the dancing to continue long into the late hours of the evening. The execution is up to you, personalise with a quirky sign and place these to one side of the dance floor for your guests to find.

       3. Let’s play ‘I Spy’

Professional wedding photography is a great way to capture your wedding day moments and memories but why stop at a single shooter when you could turn all your guests into the paparazzi.  Placing disposable cameras with little checklists on each table can encourage guests to capture the memorable moments from all angles.

Here’s an example checklist for you to use, add to and personalise:

  • Group shot of your table
  • The loved up couple holding hands
  • Best dancer in action
  • Cutest couple
  • Clinking glasses
  • Laughter
  • Your best selfie
  • A joyful moment
