Now that you planned your wedding or are planning a wedding… What will you notice at future weddings that you go to?
Before I never realized all the time it took to plan a wedding, I always overlooked a lot of things. Now that I planned my wedding, I will now have more appreciation for wedding related ideas.
-details of the party favors
-colored shoes for the bride
-see if i can find any DIY projects

Honestly, besides all of the little details I notice so much more now that I’ve planned my own wedding, the first wedding we attended after our own, I totally teared up during the vows!! I’m a pretty emotional person but I find myself smiling and beaming during vows at weddings because it makes me so happy! After we were married, there’s a deeper meaning to listening to the vows now that really touched me!
Now I’m hyper critical of wedding details and fashion…but to each bride her own:) That’s why I love weddings, so much variety and different and beautiful ways to decorate and accessorize!

I think I’ll pay more attention to the little details that the bride injects into the wedding to make it more cohesive. At all the weddings I’ve been to, I’ve really just paid attention to the the food and whether or not I danced. Now I definitely try to spend more time appreciating what the bride does!

I second noticing little details – especially things I haven’t seen before. Additionally, from both personal experience and planning my wedding, I notice things that relate to guests’ comfort, like whether there is enough food for vegetarians and whether there’s adequate seating for all guests. I’ve been to 2 weddings now where there weren’t enough chairs for everyone!

Everything! Mostly things that can be expensive, now that I know how much things like chivari chairs and peonies REALLY cost!

I never paid attention to ANYTHING at a wedding besides the favors. How selfish is that? Now that I planned my own, I’ll pay attention to the ceremony decor, the programs, the vows, the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, the Groomsmen tuxes/ties/socks, the cocktails, the centerpieces, the tableclothes, the menu setup, the cake flavor, the topper, the first dance song, the daddy dance song, and the bouquets.

Almost everything. From the order of the events at the reception, to how they arranged seating, what drinks they had, favors, music, colors, yeah pretty much most of all the details.

Ummmm….. everything!?!?! Honestly, I’ve always been pretty aware of a lot of details that go into making a wedding. But during our engagement (we attended 8 weddings!) I was definitely on hyper-alert mode! Still, I notice a TON more little things that probably no one else in the room even notices. I always try to compliment the bride on something seemingly small, but special about her wedding that I think a lot of the guests might miss…

Gosh, i have NEVER noticed all the details at the weddings, and its funny because i’ve been to so many! but i totally obsessed over all the details at mine so i will definitely notice the following things at peoples weddings:
invites, diy details, the first dance, the bouquets/florals, bridesmaids and groomsmen outfits, the cake, all the little extra decoration, the music, the ceremony…just everything!
and i will be gushing to each and every bride from now on…”i love all your details” ! it was so nice to hear at mine. made all the craziness almost worthwhile.

I think like most…EVERYTHING. Since I started planning I actually went back and looked at pictures of the last couple weddings since I hadn’t paid attention to anything but the dress/general feel of the venue while I was there

@Lili — did you attend cocktail receptions where there weren’t enough chairs for everyone on purpose, or was there a mistake in the guest count?
I have definitely started noticing the details more since I’ve started planning, like centerpieces, how the invites matched the programs, etc.

@mizrunzou – They were both receptions with full-blown dinners, but just not enough seating. One had high cocktail tables with no seats in another totally separate room, which made it feel like if you didn’t get lucky enough to grab a seat in the main dining area, you were being punished by having to stand through dinner away from everyone else. The other had some lounge furniture in lieu of tables, but trying to balance plates and glasses on your knees and the floor is a recipe for getting things spilled on your dress.

And just to clarify, both weddings had many regular tables and chairs, just not enough for everyone – by a lot. It wasn’t just that they’d underestimated the guest list slightly, it had to be intentional.
