With so much wedding preparation to do, it’s important to keep track of miscellaneous items you’ll need for the ceremony itself - especially those you may not necessarily think of right off the bat. Whether you’re participating in a religious tradition, like a unity candle, or imagining a ceremony exit through lots of confetti, it’s the little extras that make your “I dos” unique.
