Down to the nitty gritty

Let me just stress the importance of the little details of your wedding day. My goal is not to add more stress to the planning, but to share with you that the little details are important. Planning and designing your wedding can be fun, and it will be well worth it! It may seem out of your budget or not a super high priority to you, but the little details do make the biggest difference in setting the tone for your dream wedding. From the cake, the florals, the votives at the table and the backdrop, all these little items will make a big difference on the statement you make.

If you're here, you love beautiful moments and want the best for your wedding. These details will bring your wedding photos up to the next level, and bring everything you ever dreamt of to fruition.

There are amazing vendors in Lincoln & omaha...

If planning the details are not your thing, you can delegate this task to a family member helping you plan or find a wedding planner who can help you with the inspiration and hiring process. Or let's say, you are crafty, I would recommend hosting a small party between you and your maids or close family to craft the details over some wine and food. Who doesn't love a craft night? Or consider a weekend thrifting votives, and various candles with friends.

Wilderness Ridge in Lincoln, pictured here, offers food and drink services when booking their location for your wedding. One thing to know is many of the venues offer in-house food services and may not allow outside vendors aside from a cake vendor. Personally, I love this! This will save you so much less planning because it's all done for you. Let's just say, your time is valuable.

If you're considering nixing some of these small details, maybe reconsider the smaller guest list because let's be honest, I bet there are a handful of people you barely know that are on your list. Your mother-in-law's friend from work, who you really don't know, and have maybe met once really does not need an invite. Yes, they may bring you a $20-30 gift, but that won't make up in the cost of serving food/drinks to them, and their plus one. Reducing your guest list by 10-15 people (not considering their plus one or family if you allow it) could significantly reduce what you spend in table and chair rentals, meals, and decor. Plus if you're an intimate person like me, who wants to share all the emotions, love and tears with people you've maybe had one conversation with?
