We can’t believe how popular these have become. It started with one customer asking if we did a suitcase big enough for the cards they receive from guests. We didn’t but we thought we could get hold of one, so we pursued it. However, we posted a picture on our social media and soon enough it kept happening.
We actively started going out to charity shops to buy a range of suitcases in varying sizes and designs. Many we left to keep authentic while others we relined with modern concepts like the stag design.
Customers now regularly pick from our large collection of cases to suit their Wedding or party theme. The two most popular themes now seem to be Travel, which you would expect and Harry Potter. The cases look fantastic stacked against a sweet cart for example. A simple but effective design that looks like you as the host have really thought about your theme and invested great thought into it.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us for help with any ideas you may have or for quotes to carry out these ideas. A suitcase is £8 each to hire for the day - we don’t do a week hire so you can’t go on holiday with it ha-ha.
This is another area we hadn’t really thought about when we started The Added Extra. Customers came at us with the request of Post Boxes and so we listened. We started off with our Victorian White Post Box. This can be made bespoke to your wedding by simply using an organza ribbon at the top matching you wedding or event colours while personalising it with a name plate where the collection times of the post would normally be.
The height of the metal white Post Box is 110cm with a width of 35cm. It has 2 lockable entries to the Post Box that keep the presents and cards from your guest safe for the day until your ready to empty it.
We then made a chunkier Post Box which is smaller with a height of cm but wider with a width of cm. Made from wood and beautifully designed by us, it offers something a little different. It has a lockable door at the back to keep presents and cards safe. Like all our Post boxes they can be personalised changed the decoration for your event.
We also offer the suitcases as an alternative to the post boxes. We actively started going out to charity shops to buy a range of suitcases in varying sizes and designs. Many we kept as authentic as possible, while others we relined with modern concepts like the stag design.Customers now regularly pick from our large collection of cases to suit their Wedding or party theme.
The Wishing Well is also a great design by our Creative Manager. A fabulous idea offering you the best wishes in your future in which your Wedding Guests can put their letters and presents. The Wishing Well allows a lot more design as its not your standard shape. All of us at The Added Extra team love this to be ordered as its great to decorate and experiment with new ideas. It’s very popular with outdoor Weddings and offers itself to a number of possible themes.
At The Added Extra, we never stop at just one variation. Check out our collection of Letters that we offer HERE
