Pointless Things I Want for My Wedding

August 18, 2019
Blog post

Prepare yourselves for quite the understatement. Weddings are a MASSIVE expense. So far Jaz and I have only booked our venue, catering and photographer which has cost a small fortune and we still have so much more left to book. Which is why, no matter how much our hearts desire, we have to be brutal and cut down on the fun things we want but don’t need for our wedding…unless we take out a loan of course haha. Currently, these are all top of the list of the pointless things I want for my wedding.


I recently found out that you can actually book to have Alpacas at your wedding which I thought was the best thing ever! They serve no purpose other than looking cute and providing entertainment. I’m positive our guests would love to pet, feed and have their picture taken with some adorable Alpacas. I’m currently waiting to hear back from our venue to see if they will actually allow Alpacas. Yes, I really have enquired about this. Fingers crossed!

Nightmare Before Christmas Cake Topper

We’re getting married on Halloween. I’m a Tim Burton fanatic. So, naturally, I really want this adorable Nightmare Before Christmas cake topper. It’s definitely unique and definitely me. Jaz, on the other hand, isn’t sold on it. Despite our wedding date, he isn’t as big a fan as I am of all things spooky.

Cinderella Shoes

It’s the dream on many brides to have gorgeous, over-priced shoes and I’ve had my eye on the Jimmy Choo Cinderella Collection for quite some time. These shoes are B-E-A-UTIFUL! Completely embellished with Swarovski crystals this collection is definitely fit for a fairytale wedding. Obviously, they are just a tad pricey and my wedding venue has a lot of stairs so heels probably aren’t the best option…still, that doesn’t stop me from lusting after them.

Bride and Bridesmaids Robes

I really, really want to get these personalised robes for myself and my two bridesmaids. I think they’re very cute and would be great to wear while we’re getting ready before the wedding and to get out picture taken in them. Plus, I think I would genuinely wear mine after the wedding too! They are a bit of a pointless wedding expense, but I will most likely get them anyway haha.

Sweet Table 

As we’re having a Halloween wedding I’d love to have a table filled with Halloween treats. Jaz discovered that we could also get personalised M&Ms with our wedding date and names on which is something he now really wants haha. It’s definitely a fun feature and we do have quite a few children at the wedding who would love it!

Wedding Countdown

A personalised wedding countdown is a completely pointless thing that I have actually already bought from Etsy. Oops. It’s a very cute little wooden sign with a chalkboard heart that we can hang in our house and update each day. Of course, after the wedding, there is literally nothing else you can do with it.

    I know people who had alpacas at their wedding, it’s such a lovely idea, I’d definitely want them if we were getting married in the UK! I’ve got a robe already and a sign, I’ve got so much wedding stuff, it’s so easy to get obsessed haha xxx

      Oh really?! They’re so cute and it’d be a lot of fun to have them there haha. I’m definitely tempted to get the robe, where did you get yours from? It really is easy to get obsessed, especially with Etsy around haha

        Yeah 100% something a bit different too. Well I signed up to this thing called Team Hen where they send you a bride box each month and got one in there!

      Right?! I’d love to include them all. I’m so in love with the shoes, it’s very tempting to just buy them haha

    The wedding countdown board and the bride robes aren’t pointless – the robe would be such a special, sentimental memory of the day. The wedding countdown board could also be gifted on to friends and be shared around your friend group and become a tradition x

      Yeah I think I definitely will end up getting a robe for myself and bridesmaids. That’s a really good idea with the countdown board! I hadn’t thought of that, no one else I know is getting married yet but I can definitely be passed on when they do. ? x
