    1. If your venue allows candles, a box of these white tapers will add a touch of romance to the table decor. It'll get dark a lot earlier than you think, and candlelight is almost universally flattering (thank me later).

    Amazon / Via

    The paraffin wax is smokeless, long-burning, and unscented, too, so you can keep them lit all night long. Plus, any leftover candles are neutral enough to be re-used throughout the year, so none of these will go to waste.

    Get a box of 45 on Amazon Canada for $44.51.

    2. These double-walled drink glasses that'll be the perfect way to serve up a nice, hot drink for all your arriving guests. Fill them with coffee, drinking chocolate, or a hot toddy, so everyone can defrost as they settle in for appetizers.

    Amazon / Via

    You can even use an electric engraving pen to customize the glasses and use them as place settings for guests. That way, they can reuse the glasses throughout the night, then take them home as a nice keepsake.

    Get a set of two glasses on Amazon Canada for $19.98.

    3. This artificial rose bouquet that'll create the illusion of verdant florals, even if you're saying "I do" in the depths of winter. Each package comes with a vase to make things even easier for you!

    Amazon / Via

    Unlike real flowers, these ones are easily adjustable and have neat, flexible stems so you can create the perfect look. Plus, they're cost-effective, and you'll be able to take them home as a keepsake once the wedding is over.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $29.99+ (available in four styles).

    4. These rustic wall sconces that are an easy way to add lighting AND decor in one fell swoop. The soft lighting is the perfect antidote to unflattering overhead lighting, and will basically guarantee you look lovely and glowing in every photo.

    Even though it comes with faux hydrangeas, you can totally replace them with other kinds of florals if you prefer. They're battery operated, too, so make sure you also get a pack of batteries to keep them going all night long.

    Get a pair on Amazon Canada for $28.99+ (available in two colours).

    5. A strong, Teflon-coated umbrella that will keep you and your guests dry throughout all kinds of weather. Get enough for the wedding party so that photos don't have to be delayed due to weather (we're on a schedule here, people!), or simply hang a few by the entrance for anyone needing to pop out for a moment.

    It might be winter, but precipitation can be unpredictable! The automatic open function makes it quick and easy to protect yourself and your wedding attendees from unexpected weather.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $26.95+ (available in two styles).

    6. This ultra moisturizing salve that'll help soothe dry, cracked lips. Kissing in blistery winds can wreak havoc on our skin, and you'll probably be doing a LOT of that. This balm can even help heal minor burns, diaper rash, and damaged cuticles, making it a great emergency tool to have on hand.

    Reviewers rave about how deeply moisturizing it is. BuzzFeed writer Alice Prendergast says, "It's a life-saver in the winter time, and because it has a light, rosy hue (not a white, chalky cast), it won't make you look like you're dying of the bubonic plague."

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $10.50.

    7. These classic Mason jars that are sure to be the star of the show. Use them as DIY candleholders outdoors, or fill them with jams or bath salts for comforting and unusual wedding favours.

    8. These artificial chrysanthemums that you'll be able to pop in vases without worrying that they'll wilt before the evening is over. Even though chrysanthemums are in season during the fall, your florist might not be able to get them past October, making these faux versions a quick (and budget-friendly) alternative.
