  • Reserved signs: Normally the first row is saved for family, adding signs adds some extra decor to your ceremony while also reserving the seats for those special guests!

  • Programs: We will go more into these under “printed materials” but programs are the perfect way to introduce your bridal party.

  • Flowers: Pew markers, floral arrangements, arbor arrangements, etc.

  • Mic: So everyone can hear your officiant and the bride + groom!

  • Music: Don’t forget to choose a song for the processional and recessional for you and your bridal party!
