As a wedding photographer, I have captured countless weddings and have seen firsthand the importance of including certain details on the wedding day.

In this blog post, I will be sharing my top five things to include in your wedding details to ensure that your big day is captured perfectly!!

01. Invitations

Your wedding invitations are the first thing that your guests will see in regard to your wedding. They set the tone for the day and can give your guests a glimpse into the style and theme of your wedding. Make sure to include your wedding colors, fonts, and any design elements that are important to you. Consider hiring a calligrapher to add a special touch to your invitations. Not only will your invitations be a beautiful addition to your wedding details, but they will also make for great photo opportunities.

02. Jewelry

The right jewelry can make all the difference on your wedding day. A stunning pair of earrings or a statement necklace can elevate your wedding look and add a touch of glamour to your photos. Consider selecting jewelry that complements your wedding dress and style. If you’re wearing a vintage-inspired gown, look for jewelry with Art Deco or Victorian-inspired details. Alternatively, if you’re going for a more modern look, opt for minimalist jewelry that will add a touch of sophistication.

03. Shoes

Your wedding shoes may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think about your wedding details, but they can add a pop of color or a unique design element to your photos. If you want to add a little extra detail to your wedding day look, consider selecting a pair of shoes that are a different color than your wedding dress. Alternatively, if you’re looking for something more traditional, choose a pair of classic heels or flats that will never go out of style.

04. Perfumes/Cologne

The scent you wear on your wedding day can be a powerful memory trigger. Selecting a perfume or cologne that is special to you or that you wear frequently can create a sense of familiarity and comfort on your wedding day. Not only will the scent add a unique detail to your wedding photos, but it will also help you feel confident and beautiful on your big day.

05. Sentimental Gifts

Finally, consider including sentimental gifts in your wedding details. These can be anything from a special piece of jewelry from a loved one to a handwritten note from your future spouse. These details can add a personal touch to your wedding day and serve as a reminder of the love and support that you have in your life. They can also make for beautiful photo opportunities, as they often have special meaning and significance.
