What are Wedding Details?

What are Wedding Details?

I love details. It's the little touches or "details" that make a wedding extra special. When planning a wedding the "details" often come last. They are something that are planned at the end and unfortunately they can sometimes be over looked.


The big details are things like center pieces, flowers, the cake, the dresses and the bouquets. However it is the little details that get your guests talking and gushing over. The little details can be different for each person or bride-to-be. They are generally the placecards, bomboniere, favours, cake toppers, gifts for your family, bridal party gifts or even table numbers. They add a personalised touch to your wedding and make it unique to you.

Not too many people touch on what wedding details are, as details can be so different to each person. In fact, many people have no idea what wedding "details" are.

Wedding Details are: ...what make your wedding unique and reflective of you both as couple. Your details can share the story of you both as a couple. This could be displayed through a photo wall, photo table numbers, thank you cards or a unique wedding guest book. The "details" are showing off your relationship and personal love for each other.


... what defines the theme and style of your wedding; such as rustic, beachy, modern, minimalist, glitzy/glamour and/or native ...are big details are things like center pieces, table runners, flowers, candles and bouquets ...are also the smaller things like bouquet charms, rose petal confetti, disposable table cameras, personalised engraved glasses and dance floor thongs

...are what keep your guests informed during the day such as, ceremony cards, place cards, menu's, table number, seating charts and signs. After all there is so much of information your guests will need to know


...are ways your guests can interact and have fun with, such lawn games, kids table, champagne bar, lolly bar, photobooth etc


The bottom line is the "details" are what MAKES a wedding uniquely yours. The beautiful thing about details, is that everybody has different likes and personalities. The key to nailing them is to make sure the little details are all reflective of you both as a couple.

Your guests will be walking around your ceremony and reception whispering "This is soo them!"
