Why Does It Cost This Much?
These are the extra items that help to create a wedding's signature style, from personalized yarmulkes to pretty print parasols at the ceremony, to a personalized aisle runner created by the same aisle runner team who creates celebrity wedding aisle runners. Personalized aisle runners have received a ton of bridal media attention lately for their dazzling designs, custom phrases, intricate crystal placement and hand-painting, and 3D effects like the look of a rose carpet.
And fine cigars offered at the wedding are a mark of class and style, just like the offering of the finest liquors, making this particular accessory at the wedding a noted one for extra budget use.
It's the little things that add up, especially when they're items that guests recognize from elite wedding trends (like an aisle runner,) or that elevate an expected treat (like a cigar bar,) or that elevate a religious or cultural tradition (like personalized yarmulkes in a great display for the ceremony.) Consider accessories to be an important 'catch-all' category that contains some of the brightest effects of your big day.
