4 Wedding Supplies You Don’t Want to Forget

August 4, 2023


Planning your dream wedding is an exciting and overwhelming journey that leads to a day filled with love and cherished memories. As you dive into the whirlwind of wedding preparations, you’ll certainly find that there are so many details you’ll likely leave out. While some details may slip your mind, there are a few wedding supplies that occasionally go overlooked. From wooden hangers for your one-of-a-kind gown to snacks for the wedding party. There are thoughtful touches that will ensure your special day is nothing short of extraordinary.


Wooden Hangers for All Gowns

When you’re choosing your attire, elegance, and attention to detail truly matter. Your gown should be everything you want it to be, and that goes beyond how it looks on you. You may not think of hangers when it comes to wedding supplies. In reality, they should definitely be on the top of your to-bring list. Plastic hangers, especially in photos, do not look good. To preserve the beauty of your exquisite gowns, consider investing in wooden hangers for you and your wedding party.

While plastic or wire hangers are flimsy, wooden hangers provide sturdy support. Thus preventing any unwanted creases or wrinkles! Your wedding party will appreciate this gesture, as it shows how much you care about their appearance on your special day.

Wooden hangers preserve your dresses in flawless condition for photos, but they also bring a sophisticated touch to the dressing area! 

Wedding supplies that help keep a room tidy!

The moments leading up to the wedding ceremony are full of anticipation and excitement. With all the hustle and bustle going on, you’re bound to be tossing things around the room. While it may seem natural on your wedding day, a messy room can make your wedding photos a little less elegant. You don’t want to see the Mcdonald’s you gobbled down before putting on your gown.

Designating a “getting ready” room for you and your wedding party, and a room for getting dressed can make your day feel organized. Consider bringing along a little “tidy kit” with your wedding supplies! Items such as Clorox wipes and trash bags can help ease in keeping the room clean.

A tidy room enhances the overall experience as you prepare to walk down the aisle.

A Shot List of Family Formals

One of the most exhausting parts of your wedding day can be the family formals. You just said “I do” and the last thing you want to do is corral your entire family. One of the top wedding supplies you can have is a list of family formals for your photographer. 

Include your immediate family members, special friends, or chosen family you want to ensure you have photos with. By providing me with a clear list of names and groupings, you ensure that this part of your day runs smoothly and quickly – allowing you to party sooner!  This list gets added directly to my wedding supplies, so once written you no longer have to think about it.

Snacks for the Wedding Party

A wedding day can be a long and exciting affair, and amidst the festivities, it’s essential to take care of your wedding party’s well-being. Ask your wedding party what their favorite snacks are, and set aside an arrangement for them to bring along with the rest of your wedding supplies. A wide selection of delicious and energizing snacks helps keep everyone fueled and ready to celebrate. 

If you’re wanting this portion of your wedding supplies, consider hiring a vendor to help with the snacks! Charcuterie boards, mimosas, parfaits, and even mini donuts are all wonderful and fun ideas. Keeping your wedding party’s spirits high and tummies satisfied ensures that they can fully partake in your special day with enthusiasm and joy.


As you plan your dream wedding, remember that it’s the little details that weave together that truly make a difference in your day. As you sort through your huge list of wedding supplies, these four details are ones that can help transform your wedding day into an unforgettable day in all your loved ones’ lives. When in doubt – hire a wedding planner to help you with all your wedding supplies!
