He brings you flowers, does the dishes, and intercepts incoming calls from your future mother-in-law. He’s a keeper.
It’s the little details that add up in life, love, and wedding planning.
Despite Aunt Harriet and her trusty disposable, it’s important to have a shutterbug who knows what she’s doing. Photographer Genevieve de Manio captures every moment from the first kiss to the “Sweet Caroline” sing-along with sophistication and subtlety.
From save-the-date cards to seating charts, weddings involve lots of paperwork. Make it pretty and personal by pairing up with Katharine Navins at Tallow Studio. She’ll custom-design and letterpress all that propaganda to match your sassy/elegant style.
Girls, Girls, Girls
You love them dearly, but they’ve no clue what to wear with the awesome bridesmaid dresses you picked out. Heather Hoffman’s delicate necklaces, earrings, and rings (available at Folklorica) drip with clusters of candy-colored semiprecious stones.
This One’s for the Boys
Your fiance has a lame stash of engraved flasks from his tenure as a groomsman. Get his guys something with style: Matthew Keller’s silk pillows (available at J.E.M.) with cashmere herringbone and houndstooth have original illustrations of Boston landmarks.
He’s been told he can’t smash cake in your face at the reception. Check out gorgeous tiered confections (in flavors like spice cake with apricot preserve and dark chocolate with truffle filling) from Jenny’s Wedding Cakes. Then tell him again, just to be sure.
A Little over the Top
Your day is all about you, and so are wedding toppers from Naked Peggies. They’re hand-painted to look just like the couple (down to corsage and boutonniere). And, fine, they can include the entire bridal party, too.
Strappy stilettos look hot while you’re floating down the aisle, but crushed toes do not a happy reception make. Pick up Footzyrolls (available at LuxCouture) for you and girly guests. The silk flats have rubber soles so nothing will stop your first night of dancing as a missus.
And that’s no small potatoes.
