12 Fun Novelty Items I Need for My Wedding
Credit: Courtesy/InStyle

I've just begun planning my wedding, and while I'm well aware I should be saving my money for the important things — like, you know, a decent venue and an open bar package — the fashion editor in me still can't resist the opportunity to shop. Aside from searching for the perfect white gown, I've surprisingly fallen in love with novelty accessories, such as necklaces that say "Mrs." and "Wifey" tote bags. Do I think they're a bit cheesy and over-the-top? Yes, absolutely. But do I really care? Nope, not in the slightest.

To be honest, I didn't think I'd be this type of bride until the ring was on my finger and the silly engagement mugs began rolling in. Life was still very busy, but looking at these fun items reminded me that this is a happy time in my life, and there's no shame in celebrating such a major milestone.

So, if you're getting ready to say "I do" to the love of your life, and you're looking for that tiny dose of cheesy, celebratory happiness, here are some things you might want to add to your cart (sparingly though — even wedding flowers are expensive).
