Good Buy: Happily Ever After

by Edited by Rachel Morgan

These days, planning a wedding is no small task. There are wedding bands to pick out, flowers to order, favors to consider, a guest list to curate—the list goes on. But we’ve combed the area and brought you the best South Jersey has to offer in terms of must-need wedding items. Read on—and happy planning

Love in Full Bloom
Flowers are an important part of any wedding day, whether you prefer textured blooms like English garden roses or trend toward classic, like a bouquet of blush or white roses. Local florist Moorestown Flower Shoppe offers a wide array of bridal bouquets, ceremony flowers, floral cake decorations and centerpieces to fit any size budget. Now that’s beautiful. Prices vary; complimentary consultation offered; Moorestown Flower Shoppe, 66 E. Main St., Moorestown, (856) 234-0660 Alimario Photography

Banded Together
It wouldn’t be a wedding without his-and-hers wedding bands. For men, this Benchmark tungsten and 18-karat gold is a new twist on a more traditional look. Its counterpart comes in the form of a classic women’s diamond eternity band, with unique heart-to-heart azures on the inside of the ring, to always remind you of the true meaning of the day. Men’s band, $750; women’s, available in all diamond weights and starts at $1,200 at Billig Jewelers, 300 Route 73 S., Marlton, (856) 983-2300

Grow Your Love
Give your guests a send-off gift that they’re sure to remember. These tiny potted succulents add just the right touch of ambiance to your event, and just as easily find a place on your guests’ windowsills, desks or bedside tables once the day is over. Similar succulent favors start at $5 each and are available for order at Leigh Florist, 400 Amherst Road, Audubon, (856) 547-1090

Let It Burn
Take the personalized route when it comes to favors, and dole out these personalized Yankee Candles to your guests. Adorn them with a photo of you and your beloved and your wedding date, then choose your size and fragrance—we’re partial to Wedding Day—for a unique reminder of your big day. $15-$33, available for order at or by calling (877) 803-6890

Make it Official
Give your guests the very first peek into your big day with a personalized invite suite by local stationer Papertree Studio. Featuring of-the-moment designs ranging from whimsical to classic, you’ll be sure to find something that strikes your fancy. Invitation suites start at $8.50 each at Papertree Studio, Williamstown, (609) 850-1600

Step Out Together
While there are many aspects of your wedding day ensemble to consider, don’t forget to put your best foot forward. For women, we prefer the offerings of Jimmy Choo—either an eye-catching gold sandal, or a more classic but equally striking classic pump, also in a shimmering gold hue. For men, a tuxedo cap-toed Oxford handcrafted in Spain will do nicely. Jimmy Choo Lang Sandal, $850; and Jimmy Choo Abel Pointy Toe Pump, $625, both available at Nordstrom, 2000 Route 38, Cherry Hill, (856) 773-5600. Mezlan Concerto Men’s Oxford, $275, available at Lee Newman, 2076 Route 70 E., Cherry Hill, (856) 424-8388

Linked for Life
Finish off his wedding day look with a pair of monogrammed cufflinks. These stunning sterling silver cufflinks by Allison & Ivy are available in white, yellow or rose gold, measure 16.5mm and are made to order with three initials. They make the perfect day-of gift from the blushing bride. Allison & Ivy sterling silver cufflinks, $385 at Haddonfield Fine Jewelers, 147 Kings Highway E., Haddonfield, (856) 427-4465
