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.
Alyssa had a first look with her Dad where she gave him a letter to read and when he was finished reading it she signed it for the last time with her maiden name.
Christina had her bridal portraits taken at her Alma Mater, TWU.
Anastasia incorporated lockets with photos of her grandparents on her wedding day, and her grandmothers gorgeous chair was used for her bridal session.
