Lol- I am an event planner by trade and I echoe all of you comments.  The energy in the room is what makes a wedding, and what people remember.  for that matter, even as an event planner, we chose to focus our $ on the food, the music and the open bar…. πŸ™‚  It’s not worth worrying about minutia!

I was actually really surprised that people did notice the little details at my wedding. I knew while planning it that I was just doing it for me, and I was ok with that. But I did get a ton of comments about my personal touches.

Do you guys think that maybe people do not notice the little details individually, but that they do notice the overall effect of them?

This is great!  I never noticed details at a wedding until I started planning my own.  With that said, I’m not doing “little things” at all.  IMO it’s a waste of money that no one will give a second look to.  The venue didn’t have my color I wanted for linens!  To some, that would be the end of the world.  For me?  I changed my color scheme… no biggie, it will still be beautiful!!  Everyone around me laughs at what an “easy going bride” I am.  At the end of the day, I just want to marry my love – nothing else really matters πŸ™‚

I think that there has to be a fine balance. I was at a wedding this winter that used whatever the hall had on had on hand, just a simple candle for the centerpieces, weird table layout, really there was nothing personal at this wedding at all. There were a ton of comments on how blah the whole thing was. They had a great DJ, good food, and open bar. It was one of the most boring weddings I have ever been to. That was the third similar wedding I have been to, and at each one I heard comments on how it seemed like either no effort or no personality was put into it.

This makes so much sence and it’s about time someone wrote a post about it! I keep trying to remind myself this because I think with us being brides, we are almost “forced” into stressing about the small detales that in reality, no one will care!

I think we all need a little reality check sometimes! Thanks! πŸ™‚

What a good post! A much needed reminder. I’m about to start my escort cards, and this post put me in a nice, calm state of mind.

Yep.  I don’t care about details, to the point that we’ve ended up with a reading rainbow themed wedding despite my best efforts for something vaguely resembling adult.

I just had my wedding and the two items people commented the most on was the food and the DJ. A good DJ or band can really effect the wedding and how much fun it is!  They should be able to read the vibe of the room and what sorts of songs get people up to dance.  Just because there are songs a bride or groom love, doesnt mean everyone will want to dance to it (learned that at another wedding where the couple dictated all the songs to be played and not many people got up to dance).  Let the professional do their job!

And you are right. Not everyone will notice all the little things. They will remember if they had a good time or not first and foremost.
