I looking for a category type of expression to group all those extra services and people you could book for a wedding – but I fear it's understood differently. So the term I would want to use would be "assets" – so in my understanding an "asset" could be a photographer, a clown, a band etc.

Doing a little research on the matter I got the impression that "assets" is instead actually used for stocks and bank accounts. Now I'm a bit worried, if it would be understood if I tried to use the term "assets" anyways? Or would there be a different, more suitable term for this…?

Thank you!

    Assets can frequently be used more figuratively beyond financial investments, however it would be more common to use to refer to an attribute, rather than an option. For example . you might compare relative assets to a location : good freeway access, views, weather ... but less comfortably to refer to "large dance floor", 'cocatail deck' as an asset -- that might be more comfortably referred to as 'features' or "ammenities". As for a menu of possible services for a wedding "options" or "services" would be better, atlhough "featured options" or "wedding extras" or "enhancements" ?

    'Wedding assets' sounds to me like a term lawyer's might use in composing a pre-nuptial agreement.

    My first thought was something that may, or may not, still be possessed by the prospective bride. Jan 28, 2018 at 22:18

    'Wedding assets' sounds perilously close to the BrE slang expression 'wedding tackle'.

If they are all people you could describe them collectively as service providers, or perhaps contractors.
