You all know that I’m ALL about details- hence the name of this blog, Every Last Detail. I believe it’s the details that can make or break a wedding’s decor, and it’s usually the small details, like a favor or escort cards. In my time working in the wedding industry, I’ve seen so many run-of-the-mill details in weddings that just don’t reflect the style and tone of the wedding. Needless to say, they’re thrown together at the last minute, because despite brides’ wants and visions for awesome handmade DIY items at their weddings, sometimes there just isn’t enough time for it- and I can attest to that as a bride too!
And so, I created details that were designed to show the effect that details can have on wedding décor. I started with making Chivari chair accents to mimic the look of the popular ribbon and pearl necklaces. A needle and thread, a little ribbon,”pearls” and some pink tulle, and voila- our Chivaris were dressed up, modern, chic style!
I created a few different table numbers, all of which were designed to be a part of the whole table décor. Although I love paper, I wanted something more than just a number in a frame. I was going for table numbers as objects and actually PART of the table.
I took specialty scrapbook paper and made paper chargers- a great way to add some color to the table at an incredibly affordable price.
MMD Events created a magnetic escort card display board, complete with a pink frame and gray background. I created escort cards using specialty paper as a background to frame the cards, adding a nice design element to the plain white cards.
And then of course there were the flowers- simple, but they made a statement. Peonies, baby’s breath, and dusty miller paired with lots of candles were the perfect combination for the modern, chic look for this shoot.
The key to this whole look is to keep things clean and simple. Minimal design is key for a look like this. Tying in different elements to become a PART of the décor instead of an addition makes everything look more cohesive and complete. Details are probably the most important part of a wedding- they can make or break it!
And now for some more exciting news! With this photo shoot, I’ve decided to launch an Etsy Store just for wedding details! It will of course be called Every Last Detail, and will include table numbers, decor elements, favors, escort items, and other custom details. So if you want special details for your wedding (or know someone who does), send them over to the Every Last Detail Etsy Store!
