The Little Details

NC Belle in Boots


It's time for another Wedding Wednesday post. If you are getting tired of them, sorry, we are almost at the finish line. 

Today I'm sharing some of the little details from the wedding day. I am really glad the photographer got a lot of these shots. I had no clue what the food set up looked like until I got our pictures. All I remember besides dancing at the reception is all the people. I didn't really even see the food table. 

My mom ordered this sort of shadow box. There are little wooden hearts and everyone wrote their messages on them before dropping them in the opening at the top. The day after our wedding, we poured them all out and read them. It was really sweet and funny. 
My family likes to antique shop and restore old things all the time. This frame is one that my dad found at either an auction or estate sale. It got painted up and a piece of chalkboard painted wood was attached to the back. My sister wrote the message and this was placed in the window of the building where the reception was held. I am planning on snagging this frame and hanging it somewhere in our house with a wedding picture. 
Instead of the traditional book for everyone to sign, we decided on going with a photo book. I made it pretty simply on Shutterfly.com. The first page just thanked everyone for coming and being a part of our day and asked them to sign our memory book. We also read these the day after the wedding. Very comical entries and some heartfelt sweet messages inside. 

Outside there was another antique piece from a dresser. Instead of a mirror though, it had, you guessed it, more chalkboard. 

Those are just a few of the little details and keepsakes from the wedding. My family, especially my mom, put a lot of thought and time into planning things with me. I don't remember any of the stress now but it was enough to make my sister decide that she is going to elope. Fine by me, but by "elope" she better mean get married somewhere tropical and invite me! 

Next up I'm sharing reception fun and then the blooper reel! If you feel like it, share your wedding post and go link up with Meredith

Oh I love all those ideas. Not enough to make me want to go through with a wedding again ha! But enough that I'm totally pinning this so I can remember them for 20 years from now when it's time to get my daughter married off. =)

It's always the little details that people remember the most! I love the "To our friends and family" page of your memory book, such a sweet thought/message :)

I love the chalk boards! It looks like your wedding was gorgeous. I went with more of the "elope" route and that was perfect for my hubby and me.
