Wedding Day Details | Wedding Inspiration

Don’t forget these wedding day details for your getting ready photos! No doubt, your photographer will be there to capture your ceremony and reception, but what about the details that are planned before your walk down the aisle? The moments that are filled with anxious excitement, the unique trinkets that hold a special place in your heart, the fun in listening to your favorite tunes with your besties. All of these details tell a story of your best day ever. They should be celebrated and remembered just as much as your meticulously planned ceremony and reception. That’s why we rounded up a list of wedding details you don’t want to miss when getting ready for your big day. Check them out below! 


This may seem obvious but it’s so important to have plenty of space for your bridesmaids, hair and makeup artists, and an area where you can sit and hangout away from the commotion. 

Visit our Carriage House Stable venue and check out our Main House for the perfect getting ready location! 


Do you remember seeing those cute bridal party photos with all the members dressed in silk robes or matching pjs on Pinterest? Yeah, we are 100% on board with this idea! Getting ready outfits are not only cute but can double as bridal party gifts. 

Pro tip: wear something that you don’t have to pull over your head! Robes and button down pj’s will prevent you from messing up your hair and makeup when it’s time to slip into your wedding attire. 


Let’s not get hangry! This goes for both you and your fiancé. Between the nerves and the butterflies you may not have the appetite you normally would. However, you should still plan to eat! Whether you have food delivered the day of or picked up the day before, make sure it’s well balanced and that there is plenty for you and your party. 

Favorite Sips

This is the perfect time to pop open the champagne or pour yourself a glass of nice whiskey (in moderation of course!) and celebrate!
