That makes me happy. I feel like I am working on so many little details for our wedding that in the end no one outside of our immediate family is going to notice.

i am definitely one of those people that notices ALL the little details in the wedding, for better or worse (no pun intended!) i definitely notice things like flowers, centerpieces, table cloths, bridesmaids’ hair and shoes, etc. but i know not everyone is that way! and it’s not what’s important in the end, i know, but i’m so detail-oriented, i’m being pretty anal about stuff. 😉

I’m one of the guests who tend to be oblivious to the decor details unless they are really unusual. The only wedding decor items that stick out in my head were (from two different weddings):

– Giant 2D silver-toned 5-pointed stars suspended from the ceiling. This just surprised me and seemed un-weddingy to me (apologies if any readers are doing that).

– m&ms as favors. I wasn’t expecting a wedding favor, but somehow the fact that it was m&ms amused me a lot.

Other than this, I can’t tell you. I don’t know what kind of flowers the brides used, etc.

I will notice little emotional details though (how the bride is feeling, how the best man is acting, how is the flowergirl holding up, etc. etc.)

I’m oblivious at other people’s weddings, but at my own, I’m apparantly very detail oriented. In general when it comes to decorating my home/life I’m detail oriented.

@BookishBelle:  Yay!  Thanks for posting this, it actually made me feel better.  I wasn’t going to splurge on flowers (I really wanted peony roses/garden roses), but I felt it was just too pricey.  Well my Fiance surprised me by coming up with the extra money and paid for the flowers.  I was feeling a tad guilty (although really happy at the same time), but your post definitely makes me feel like it was a justified expense lol.

I think some people like me always notice the little details and appreciate them, but my SO forgets everything the next day. The last wedding we attended I asked him the next day what he thought of her dress as it was amazing and he couldn’t remember!

I think flowers are always noticed at weddings. I still remember what flower arrangements the bride and groom chose at the weddings we’ve attended in the past few years. If you think about it, the guest is sitting in front of it (the centerpiece) for at least an hour. It’s kind of hard to forget what it looks like. To be fair, I think when it’s really spectacular and beautiful, then it’s extra memorable.
