Wedding Details

With all these weddings going on, I’ve been thinking about our wedding a lot.
You’ve probably heard it said “It’s all in the details”. And you know what? It’s true!
It’s that last ten percent that makes something good something great!
The little details at our wedding is what made it unique to us. We loved all the little things. So,here are just a few.
My grandma passed away a few years ago, and so it was important to me to incorporate her into our day. I pinned one of the broaches she left me onto my bouquet so that she could be there with me all day 🙂 And I know she was.
I also wore her fur coat. It was one of my favorite things. It was perfect for a winter wedding. 
Candy Bars are becoming more and more common at weddings and I can understand why! They are so much fun!! It’s like yummy decorations 🙂 I loved our personalized paper bags. 
My amazingly talented cousin helped me out with my vision for the centerpieces. She is an interior decorator and has an eye for the details. She came up with the idea to use scrabble pieces to spell out cute love phrases throughout the tables. I loved how it turned out.
My dress was extremely simple by itself. No lace. No beading. Which was exactly what I wanted, but I didn’t want it to be boring. This embellished belt I found was perfect! Just the right amount of sparkle. 
This is one of my favorite pictures! I’m so glad I quickly made this little chalkboard so I could write this note to my dad. I gave him this picture for Father’s Day. (I wish I would have taken the time to write other little thank you notes to family, bridesmaids and friends that I could have given later as gifts)
I don’t know if it really counts, but my flowers were one of my favorite details of the whole day. They were perfect! I loved incorporating the silvery greens rather than normal leaves. It was different and helped it look more “wintery”.
Instead of a traditional guestbook, we decided to have our guests write their well wishes on blank Jenga pieces. I have all of them displayed in our family room in large glass jars. They look great and they are also really fun to go through and read every now and again. 
This amazing personalized chalkboard was not only a great decoration for the day, but it is one of my favorite art pieces in my house. I will keep it forever!!

    I love that you shared this! Sometimes I think that too much detail can become overwhelming (especially with Pinterest) but you had the perfect amount for your wedding! It definitely is important to add some small things to make it more \”you\”. I love the Jenga \”guest book\”! I definitely want to do something more creative than just signing a book, as well. 🙂

    Your wedding was so elegant!!! I LOVE it!!! 🙂 For some reason I hadn't seen any pictures of your dress with the fur coat before, but I like it a lot! So beautiful!

    So stunning 🙂 Just a random question – I saw frames with photos of you with Scott in your wedding dress in the reception photos – how did you do that? Did you snap away and then get someone to quickly print it and get it all organised? xx

    Thanks Hannah! I love your wedding too 🙂

    Instead of taking bridals a few weeks before the wedding we took pictures together all dressed up in our wedding attire. It was so nice because that way we got to control the weather in our pics and were able to have some printed for the reception. We also took pictures the day of the wedding so I have both! Hope that answers your question!

    So many darling details. I love the Jenga guest book! It's something you'll actually use a lot.

    Wow, your details were perfect! The fur coat is such a great touch. I honestly can't even remember the details from my wedding. That's probably terrible!AmyFashion and Beauty Finds
