5 Details to Add to Your Wedding Day

May 25, 2021 | Planning

Here at Wedding Sparrow, we’ve seen our fair share of weddings—and with that, just about every wedding trend in the book. From Pinterest-worthy doughnut walls to overused mason jars, it's the unique (lesser done) and timeless details that leave a lasting impression. But how do you decide which details to include, and how do you even come up with them in the first place? Today we have 5 Details to Add to Your Wedding Day courtesy of Fine Art Curation photographer Troy Meikle Photo. From vintage cars to champagne towers, get those Pinterest buttons ready...


Whether you have an interest in cars or not, brides should expect nothing but the best on their wedding day and transport to and from the venue is key to securing such sought-after style. Take a look at this Santa Barbara Speedster which will not only get you to the church on time, but will ensure you arrive in a memorable way.

While both escort and place cards designate where each guest will be seated at a wedding reception, place cards are more specific—and also more formal—than escort cards. A place card not only directs guests to the table where each will sit during the reception, but also points each guest to his or her particular seat at the table. To achieve this, they are traditionally placed at each table to denote each guest's, you guessed it, place.

If you're having a sit-down dinner reception and serving different menu options, most venues will require you to have place cards. Why? You'll need to subtly mark them (by color or accent) to indicate who's getting chicken and who's getting fish. We love these scroll style place cards by The Ayla View below...

Champagne Towers are very underrated. The structures are downright glamorous, not to mention totally camera-ready. Besides, who isn't impressed by a mesmerizing fountain pour? If serving it up big sounds as appealing to you as it does to us, we're here to help you pull off your own impressive display. Hit 'pin' on this stunning display below!

Wedding Receptions are all about friends and family gathering around newlyweds to celebrate their commitment to one another. The party also serves as a place where two families come together as one. Since attendees are going to dine, drink, dance, and mingle with each other—often for the first time as one big group—it's important that you offer them a place to sit and converse during your party. That's why setting up a wedding lounge is an important part of any reception. These intimate stations often encourage attendees to get to know each other as they take a break from the merriment.

At its heart, your wedding is about you and your spouse-to-be. It's easy to lose sight of this important central theme in the midst of all the dress shopping, flower consultations, and seating chart brainstorming—but it's obviously paramount. Why, then, shouldn't you weave bits and pieces of you and your loves' interests, personalities, and love story into the design of your big day? After all, anyone can throw a wedding, but your history is one-of-a-kind, and it's certainly worth telling on your big day.
