Once you have all of your big vendors is place, it’s time to get down to the details! Don’t get derailed by wedding planning sites that just sell a bunch of things. Everything in your wedding, from the favors to the food, should reflect your personality and things that you really love. So here are a few questions to ask yourself when choosing your wedding day details:
- Will I be able to use this again? Don’t be tempted to just buy stuff for your wedding to cross tasks off of your I-Do list. Instead, purchase decor that can be reused again as memories in your home.
- Do I really need favors? Don’t just buy favors that are easy (like those Jordan almonds). Favors aren’t a must, so if you decide to have them, make sure your favors reflect the two of you as a couple and represent something that you love. Get creative and think about your favorite goodies, family recipes and local fare. For example, many weddings in this area have a ton of out-of-town guests, so why not send them home with a small tin of Old Bay spice? It’s local, it’s cool and it’s something they may actually cook with, too.
- What will my guests remember most? Details should make your wedding one that you and your guests will never forget. So spend time selecting elements that are special and unique. If it means something to you, then it speaks to your love and that means it will always mean something to the people who come to share your day.
Stay tuned all week for more on wedding details!
