For Brides: Making your Wedding Personal

This is something that seems to have come up several times recently. It came up in a conversation Jeremy and I had and then also when a friend posted on Facebook asking for wedding planning advice. Now that we have been shooting weddings for awhile Jeremy and I have realized that one of the things that makes a wedding fabulous is when the couple makes their wedding day personal. Lots of brides worry, thinking that to have a gorgeous wedding they need to spend a ton of money. But, we have realized that one of the most memorable things about a wedding are the little details that are really personal to the couple. The little things that tell YOUR story are the things that are most important.

Here are a few examples of some of the things that couples have done to add personal details:

Bethany’s bouquet was wrapped with a piece of lace from her mothers wedding gown.

Kelsie’s “something blue” was her Grandmother’s necklace.

I love all these details :) I had kept a journal for my future husband and before I saw my husband on our wedding day I had my photographer give it to him. It was such a special moment for us :)

We had the album that Charles used to propose to me on display on our gift tables…the journal entries started the day he met me! :)
