As I am sitting here working on my escort cards, I am freaking out over every little detail, and it got me thinking…
Have I ever paid that much attention to the details of other weddings I have attended? My answer was NO. Although, I haven’t been to any weddings since being engaged so maybe it’d be different now that I’m planning a wedding. What about you guys?

For me, it’s absolutely different now that I’m planning a wedding of our own. Before I really didn’t notice the small details unless they were really awesome or really embarassing, and I couldn’t have cared less about centerpeices, table jewelry, or who sat at which table. I’ve been in weddings and I can’t even tell you what song we walked into! But at the three weddings we’ve been to since we got engaged, I find myself taking mental notes on the most incredibly silly minute details.
I hope I will grow out of it once my own wedding is over.

I do. I’m a very detail oriented person, so I’ve always noticed little things (programs, chairs, linens everything). My mom is the exact same way. I don’t think thats the norm tho.

Only because I’m in the midst of planning my own. People appreciate them, but they’re not even going to notice if they’re missing.

Nope 🙂 I admire the sentiment and meaning of marriage- I remember the bride walking down the aisle, the face of the groom and crying my eyes out ( haha weddings get me every-time 😉 . I couldn’t tell you about colors, favors, food , calligraphy , flowers or anything.

I have always looked at the very big things: colors, size/type of the flower decorations, and of course the bride’s dress. Now I’m looking at more things but only so I can get tips for myself

I have never gone out of my way to notice them, just to enjoy myself as a guest. But the details stick out regardless, whether something really works or it is a huge disaster. Some people naturally don’t notice anything, and can’t see it even when pointed out to them, but most people do notice details even if they aren’t trying to because there is no way to avoid them. Whether they remember them months and years later is another matter entirely. If you are planning a wedding or not makes no difference. That said, I have been to countless weddings since I was young (not even old enough at the time to plan a wedding) and definitely not planning a wedding myself during any of them, and the details were still very noticeable practically each time. The only way to avoid them was to not attend, period.

Most people do not even notice details. The people voting here are on WB, so it stands to reason they may now that they are thinking about wedding things. I NEVER did before being on wb, I still don’t really (but might more-so now that I am more interested), and I don’t think most people do!
I notice the couple’s relationship and the food.

I have only been to one wedding since I got engaged and I did look at more small things then… Thou not in a judgy way, except food I judge food… I don’t understand venues not providing larger meals… That’s a sure way to encourage more drunkenness… ANYWAY otherwise other weddings I have been too I couldn’t tell you anything except the colour (only cos I always find out the colour (usually by the invite colours) so I don’t wear the same colour as the BMs)

I do! I love weddings and I am very detail oriented. I am always looking for the cute personal touches on things, what types of flowers they chose, etc. I don’t know why I guess it is just how I am. I think the details are what gives weddings that extra little special touch. Of course its all about the bride and groom and love and family and everything else, but from a purely design/decor stand point I absolutely notice and look for detail 🙂

I pay attention more now that I am planning my own wedding. However, I would say the one big thing I always noticed is whether or not there are personal/unique details in a wedding. So for my own wedding I wanted to make sure there would be some “wow” things that people have not seen at every other wedding they have gone to.

CheekyWedding–I am interested in those “wow” things. Share after your wedding?

I always have. I love detail, then again I’m a writer and photographer in my free time (and hopefully someday as my career) so I focus on details all day everyday.

I also have! I’ve always said I should be an event planner bc I critique every little thing and pick a part weddings. I know it’s horrible, but I can’t help it!

I always have but that’s just my personality. I tend to notice small things most other people don’t notice.
