Meaningful Wedding Details, Creating Memories That Will Last a Lifetime

In today’s wedding world, gone are the days of the bland guest book and the same centerpiece on every table.  Bride’s are taking an active role in adding their personal touch to just about every aspect of their wedding.  From what’s in her bouquet to the handmade wedding favors, brides today really want to place their personal stamp on their wedding, making it uniquely theirs.  Whether the wedding details are important to them, their families, their fiancé, or just simply for aesthetics, it seems that each are meticulously thought through, and together make their wedding a special experience.

As planners, we LOVE LOVE LOVE details!  But if this sounds a bit daunting or you don’t want your wedding to look like it threw up Pinterest (no offense, we love you, Pinterest)….don’t worry.  Your special elements don’t have to be everywhere your guests’ look.  If you’re not feeling particularly creative, this is where your wedding planner can step in and help tie everything together.  This is one of the many things that we do to help our clients achieve the look and feel that they want for their special day.  There are some simple ways to add your personal touch to the many aspects of your wedding, and more importantly, there are ways to turn these details into memories that will last a lifetime.

One of the most meaningful aspects of planning the personal touches of your special day are the memorable moments created from those details.  For Rebecca and Tommy’s August wedding, their homemade pecan pralines favors were much more than just a “detail”.  Spending the week leading up to her wedding making pecan pralines with her mom will always be dear to Rebecca, creating a special memory behind this delicious detail.

For other sentimental facets, which perhaps might not be seen by each and every guest, consider a way to honor your loved ones that just you and your immediate family will cherish.  One of our bride’s adorned her bouquet with her grandmother’s brooch, a very meaningful and personal touch.  While another wore her mother’s veil for the ceremony.  The options are endless.  When it boils down to it, the details should be about what’s important to you and your fiancé.

Sentimental details don’t always have to honor loved ones from your past, they can also be a symbol of your new future together as Mr. and Mrs.  Take this unique stepping stone guest book, for example.  While it does make for an exceptional guest book display, the true meaning behind this element will unfold when the stepping stone is planted in your new backyard, bringing you back to your wedding day every time you step outside.

So as it can now be seen, the personal touches in your wedding go far beyond aesthetics and they don’t have to be around every corner.  The most meaningful details come from old memories paired with new memories for you and your guests’ for years to come.
