It's The Little Things {Laura's Ten} Details

May 22, 2012  •  Leave a Comment
It is inevitable that the goal of your day is for everything to be just holistically pretty. You spend hours and hours (years even) putting together the pieces to the puzzle that is your wedding day. Binders are made, planners are hired, countless conversations take place, and the planning quickly becomes the center of your focus. Well, you know the phrase, "It's the little things that count?"  we are here to add a little wind to that already burning fire. Everyone loves the extravagance of the venue, the decadence of the reception, and the romance of day. What we get to do is bring attention to all the details that bring the pieces of the big day together. Here are the top ten "little things" that we have grown to love shooting and have found really bring everything together nicely:

1. For her: You think you can't pull it off, but you can. Today is your day. Your dress can be as extravagant or as simple as YOU want it to be. Get sheik with a dress that is fitted through the hips. You can be the girl you see in Vogue, InStyle, and Cosmo. If that's not your thing, get sweet and classy with a sweetheart neckline and huge skirt. If you want to feel like a princess, look like one! Don't settle with something safe, it is your time to shine. 
2. For him: As much as this day is about your girl, she wants you to feel awesome too. That is what will make HER happy. So, go for it. Go all out with some Ascots and argyle socks. Get fancy and fun with a cumber bun and bow tie. Personally, I love the hipster look with suspenders and either slip ons or penny loafers. Make it you, but make it you with a little gumption. 
3. To wear: Spruce up your doo with a a diamond filed hair comb, perfect your neckline with a delicate diamond pendant, frame your flawless face with earrings that nearly touch your shoulders.
4. To eat: The cake not only tastes delicious at the end of your day full of family and romance, but looks incredible. Go tall and simple with a seven layered white tower cake, go short a extravagant with floral detail on a three layered square cake. Go for an expression of you, whether it's elegant, decadent, vintage, or high class, go all out. 
5. To eat on: It's one of those things you don't have to think long about, but could potentially set your reception apart. The tableware you use brings a special flare to the decor, so compliment the feel you already have going with the style and color and then move on ahead to the next item of business. 
6. To look at and to smell: Your flowers are an essential to your wedding day. They're the cherry on top of a sundae. In trying to decide which flowers to go with, consider your dress and your bridesmaid's dresses. Think of a flower that is significant to you. 
7. To keep for later: Create name cards for your guests, design large posters to personalize your reception, keep the style consistent with your programs and schedules. We love to get shots of these, because they make your wedding specific to you.
8. To center your table: Whether your reception table is round or rectangular center it with a lamp chandelier or elaborate flowers. Put candles in lanterns or wine corks in mason jars. Have fun with it. 
9. To leave with your bridal party: Brides, get your girls something unique. We all have enough necklaces and bracelets from weddings passed. Get creative with a coupon for a "free date with the new bride" to catch up on life post-honeymoon. Go thoughtful with a picture and a poem to represent your friendship. Go chic with a pair of killer pumps. Whatever you do, make it different. Groom, get your guys something practical. Your creative could be a day at the driving range, post-honeymoon for some man time. Your thoughtful could be a custom engraved pipe for each of the guys. Rather than going chic, go fun with tickets to the next big game. You're not bound by what's already been done. 
10. To top it off: of course include something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue.

In all of this, we love what you put into your day. The decisions you make the visions you have. We get to capture {the little things} that tie it all together. Keep it consistent and keep it personal. Choose a style that is you and that is the very best version of you. You'll remember your day by the memories you make and the pictures we take, so we'll capture what you create and you'll never forget.
