You know the old saying, “It’s all in the details.”? Well that holds true for planning weddings too. This quick look expose long-windedness retelling of mine (five steps to planning a wedding) began with Chapter 1 ‘Atmosphere’ (11.05.09), moved on to Chapter 2 ‘Personality’ (11.6.09) and Chapter 3 ‘Creativity’ (11.09.09), and then included Chapter 4 ‘the Love and Help of Your Friends and Family’ (11.10.09). Since this guide is only five chapters long, it means that today’s chapter is our last. So without further ado, let’s talk about details.
It should be fairly obvious by now if you’re been reading along, that the details are how you express you. It’s the little things, the extra mile, and the added touch that helps to make a celebration yours. The details are your way of adding personality and creativity. The details are how your guests know that they’re at your wedding and not Debbie and Albert Moskovitz’s. Because let’s be honest, the basic outline for a wedding is fairly laid in dirt. It’s up to you how much you want to get messy with it. I for one, love coloring outside the lines.
