Finding your wedding dress can be tough, especially when you haven’t dreamt of your wedding your whole life. Finding the right words to describe what you want can be tricky. If you find yourself in this situation, check out Simply Bridal‘s infographic on finding your wedding style, and bone up on your dress vocabulary!
A few weeks ago, Each & Every Detail was honored to be part of the American Association of Certified Wedding Planners‘ table creation team for the Color Me a Cure Tabletop Competition, hosted by the National Association of Catering and Events. Each team had to create a functional tabletop that reflected either a juvenile or an adult audience in a specific color. Along with a fabulous team of vendors, we set out to create some emerald green, Kate Spade-inspired awesomeness and, well, we did! In fact, we managed to scoop the best theme/use of color award! Here’s some shots of our table – check it out.

We love finding unique things for you out in wedding land, and today we’re pleased to show you a snippet of the insane coolness that is Amy Karp Photography. Along with wedding day shooting and more typical portrait sessions, Amy also does underwater photography. That’s right – underwater. Check this out.
Can you imagine going for a swim in your wedding dress? Amazing! The ethereal, delicate feel of these shots is just breathtaking.
Amy can also do underwater engagement shoots, but these bridals just take the cake. It’s such a one-of-a-kind way to remember your dress and your wedding.

Just wanted to let you all know that we will be at the Gleneagles Country Club’s Afternoon of Elegance Bridal Open House this Sunday, September 15.

Although it’s still 100+ degrees here in Dallas, some parts of the country will be cooling off soon, leading to the second wave of 2013 weddings! Planning ahead for next fall, and want to know when to have your wedding to go with the fall colors and weather? Check out the infographic from our friends at Simply Bridal for some tips!
Just wanted to let you know that the Grand Hotel in McKinney will be holding their fall open house on September 21st. RSVP today, and come say hi to us while you’re there!
A few weeks ago, we had a chance to work with a group of fantastic vendors to put together a tabletop for the first open house at Gather in McKinney. Here’s some photos of our creation – a reinterpretation of vintage!
We wanted to use some different elements than you might normally find in a vintage setting, like the tin-roof chargers and the chicken wire screen and floral containers. So we chose a color palette that focused on silver linens and tableware, with touches of bright yellow in the chair cushions and cake decor.
For the floral, we used bright colors and unusual tropical stems, like protea and wild ginger, to mix up the typical wildflower look on a vintage table. The small chicken wire cages and the tall sheet metal vases brought an edge to the decor and added more texture.
The screen behind the cake table was decorated with single stems and hanging candles to give it some dimension. We also had our wedding guests (okay, us) write good wishes and advice for our bride and groom on small cards, and clothes-pinned them to the chicken wire.
We love the silver on silver on silver look of this place setting. We tied the silverware together with some twine and clipped the menu to the napkin using a mini yellow clothespin.
And how cool are these menus?! These are silkscreened onto brushed metal. Talk about a unique element for your guests!
Hope you find our twisted vintage inspiring! We loved working with our vendor team to bring this vision together.

We saw this post from the UK’s Stylist Magazine on the Top 50 Most Romantic Lines from Literature some time ago and, ever since, we’ve been searching for our own “most romantic” quotes in literature. Some of these would be fantastic for a ceremony reading, or a quote in a program, especially . From Stylist’s list, here’s some of our faves:
“You and I, it’s as though we have been taught to kiss in heaven and sent down to earth together, to see if we know what we were taught.” Boris Pasternak, Doctor Zhivago
“Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same.” Emily Brontë, Wuthering Heights
“If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day, so I never have to live without you.” A.A. Milne, Winnie the Pooh
And our personal favorites!
From Brooke -
“I will love you forever; whatever happens. Till I die and after I die, and when I find my way out of the land of the dead, I’ll drift about forever, all my atoms, till I find you again…”
“I’ll be looking for you, Will, every moment, every single moment. And when we do find each other again, we’ll cling together so tight that nothing and no one’ll ever tear us apart. Every atom of me and every atom of you…We’ll live in birds and flowers and dragonflies and pin trees and in clouds and in those little specks of light you see floating in sunbeams…And when they use our atoms to make new lives, they won’t just be able to take one, they’ll have to take two, one of you and one of me, we’ll be joined so tight…” Philip Pullman, The Amber Spyglass
From Joy -
“He loved me. He’d loved me as long as he he’d known me! I hadn’t loved him as long perhaps, but now I loved him equally well, or better. I loved his laugh, his handwriting, his steady gaze, his honorableness, his freckles, his appreciation of my jokes, his hands, his determination that I should know the worst of him. And, most of all, shameful though it might be, I loved his love for me.” Gail Carson Levine, Ella Enchanted
From Wendy -
“Look, I guarantee there’ll be tough times. I guarantee that at some time, one or both of us is gonna want to get out of this thing. But I also guarantee that if I don’t ask you to be mine, I’ll regret it for the rest of my life, because I know, in my heart, you’re the only one for me.” From the movie Runaway Bride (Cheating, we know. But such a good quote!)
