Reception Essentials

Everyone knows the traditional ceremony items you need for your wedding day...unity candle, garter, etc...but what about the reception?  Here's our list of the items you need to make your wedding reception unique, chic, and totally you.

Card & Envelope Holder
Keep all those cards, gifts, and well wishes organized in style with this ultra bedazzled card holder.  This metal and glitter box is shaped like a present with a fun, sparkly bow.  A great place to keep all your cards during the reception and will look lovely under your tree for your first married holiday season together!  The Princess Box measures 10" by 10" and is available for purchase for $55 or to rent in the Chicago land area for $35 per weekend.  (Call us at the shop for details, 773.929.7422.)

Guest Book
You'll want to remember who was there to watch you tie the knot.  Whether you opt for the traditional lined guest book or something more modern, you'll need a place to put all those well wishesTry something fun like a Polaroid Photo Guest Book.  You'll be chic with your new miniature instant photo camera and
petite picture guest book.  Your guests will gladly sign in style while a business card sized photograph of them develops and slides right in.  Comes with 30 acid free, archival pages, photo protectors.  Personalization is available in the black or white album, $68 each (camera not included).

Guest Book Pen
Don't forget pens for your guests to sign with.  Opt for vases full of Sharpie markers in your wedding colors, or choose a contemporary, personalized pen.  My personal favorite, the Optical Crystal Pen comes with a silver pen sitting in a round cut diamond shaped clear base.  Personalize it with your names and wedding date, $36.  Pen base measures 2.25". 

Head Table Vases
You'll want somewhere to put your gorgeous bouquet while you and your bridesmaids are eating dinner.  Why not gift yourself and your girls with personalized centerpieces they can take home afterwords?   Opt for a classic Glass Vase Centerpiece engraved with each girl's initials?  Sold individually for $24, or in a set of three for $52.  Or add some photos to the fun with the Wedding Reception Glass Photo Vase, $32.  Each vase doubles as a frame to hold a 4x6 photo and can be personalized with each girl's name or a line of custom text. 

Cake Topper
Adorn your cake with some bling too!  Chic silver and crystal letters in your new monogram or initials will add a perfect personalized touch to your wedding cake.  Each letter is embellished with Austrian Swarovski crystals flowers.  Sold as a set of three individual letters so you can arrange them on your cake just as you'd like. One Large letter is also available now for $56, small letter is also available now for $46.00.

Toasting Flutes
Personalized toasting flutes are one more keepsake you'll want to use long after the wedding is over.  Opt for simple flutes with your names and wedding date, $26 a pair, or  pick an embellished set that fits the theme of your wedding.  Toasting Flutes in a Vase, $38 set, will echo your "two peas in a pod" feeling as tapered, frosted flutes nestle in a small vase.    Personalization is available.
