So today’s affair was all about the details. Those perfect little touches that take the wedding style to a whole new level. Of course, like one of our readers said in the comments, a wedding really is all about the bride and the groom and the love that they share. BUT, in terms of style…the weddings that people always remember are those where the details shine.

Remember, details shouldn’t push your budget. They should not cost more than you are really comfortable with. Look to your home, your friends, ebay and flea market for decor steals (fun pillows on the seating already provided is a great way to add style, mismatched tarnished silver bowls are perfect for centerpieces, vintage family photos tucked into a hodge podge of frames…things like this). Find places like the food, a signature cocktail and the favors to add personality. And, if you can DIY the details without stressing, you’ll definitely save a bundle!

Thank you so much to Elizabeth Messina for sharing the photographs from today’s affair. And of course, to Lisa Vorce of Oh How Charming! for designing it!! We love, love, love this wedding!
