The Little Details

It happened again this morning.  We were off to a great start to our day with a small buffer of time for things like emptying my closet of green things for my girls to choose something to wear for St. Patrick’s Day, making a last minute fruit bowl, and finding a replacement for lunch since dad packed the rest of the quinoa bowl for his lunch.  Thank goodness, my son the chef, made some delicious homemade mac n’ cheese that was able to make the lunch bag for my little one.

Although most of these things are done the night before, our small buffer to not be late was still in place with just enough time for me to slice an extra kiwi.  As we prepared to shut off lights and head out the door, it happened again.  With a great panic inside, I began to rush around to find (turn the page)  my car keys.

I know to put them in their place when I arrive home.

I know that know matter what I’m doing to put them in their place when I arrive home.

I know what happens when I don’t put them in their place when I arrive home.

I know.

Thankfully, I did remember that I had placed them in my office after lugging in a 20 pound light stand yesterday, and I’m also glad to say that no tardies were received.

When it comes to the little details of your wedding day, having a plan in place is essential.  Today, I’m specifically talking about the wedding day details that will be needed and possibly photographed during the getting ready portion of the day.  These details might include any family heirlooms that you will wear, your veil, gifts or cards to open, perfume, earrings, necklace, bracelet, shoes, garter, your something borrowed or blue, and anything else that is special to you.


I love to photograph wedding day details separately, and also with the heartbeat of the person wearing them that because it adds even more meaning to the photo.


As you plan for your wedding day, here are some things to consider as you think about your wedding day details.

5 Tips Every Bride Should Know

·Choose a designated details bag in a color that will stand out and is easily noticeable.  If you’re thinking hot pink, you are on the right track!

·Make a list of what details will need to go in the bag, and check them off as you put them inside. Don’t forget your undergarments!

·Pack all of your getting ready details in your designated details bag the night before, and place it beside your dress.  Chances are you’re not going to forget your dress, so you won’t forget the bag that’s with it.

·Have a special place set aside in your bridal suite or getting ready room specifically for your details and bridal accessories.

·Designate one of your bridesmaids to be the keeper of the details, and she will be the go to person who will know where everything can be found.  That’s one less thing for you to think about it.

I hope these tips will help you as you prepare for all the little details of your wedding day.

Have a wonderful day, and happy planning!
