There is a lot that goes into planning the perfect Toronto wedding. While many people focus on the big items such as venue and food, it’s the small touches that bring the whole event together and infuse the day with the happy couples’ personality. From the invitations to the centerpieces, here are all of the wedding décor and details you should ask your wedding photographer to capture.
A lot of thought and detail goes into wedding invitations. The happy couple often includes little touches that represent themselves. The invitations and save the date cards also usually introduce the theme and colors of the wedding. A big reason your wedding photographer should capture the stationary is so that in case you lose the physical paper copy you’ll always have a version to remember!
While it’s been a trend in Toronto weddings lately to cut back on the number of flowers used, the bridal bouquet is still a staple. Unlike many other wedding items, a bridal bouquet won’t last long after the wedding, which is why it’s so important to snap a photo of it! Your photographer can do a standalone shot of it or do a close up of the bride holding it.
Table Setting & Centerpieces
Wedding guests usually spend a fair amount of time sitting at the table during the reception. That means that the table setting and centerpieces are the items they’ll see the most and be most likely to remember. The tables and table décor also play a huge role in setting the tone for the reception hall so be sure to have your wedding photographer capture all of that!
One of the most recent wedding trends has been decorated wedding alters. From flowers to balloons, these days people are making the effort to make the spot where they officially become married look and feel extra special. While your photographers will capture the alter when photographing the ceremony, it’s a nice idea to have them grab some standalone shots of it to really capture it all.
What wedding is complete without a cake? The wedding cake has a long history and it doesn’t appear to be going anywhere anytime soon. These days many couples getting married may opt for a smaller cake used just for photos and cutting and supplement the rest with other deserts. Wedding cakes can be expensive though, and they definitely don’t last, so wedding photographers are sure to snap lots of photos of them!
