Peter Merry tries to “raise the bar” and I value his friendship and perspective:



I found the cutest gift for a bride that she will love, and will look great in photos. Its a hanger that wire is attached to that they form into the brides last name. It makes for a great picture to hang her wedding dress on. They can add different bows and different color woods for the hanger. Its just something I came across and thought I would share. They sell these hangers on www.etsy.com. Check it out!


Buy an eco-friendly dress! Get a dress that is made from natural fibers. Hemp, Organic cotton, and other fibers like bamboo are all green alternatives. Vera Wang has designed gowns that are made with eco-friendly materials. You can become the next eco-chic bride.

We at Attention to Details Weddings and Events want to wish everyone a safe and Happy Holidays and New Year! New posts are coming soon!


I know we have talked about this location before, but we just had a fabulous wedding there this past weekend and everyone fell in love with it. The unique venue offers endless option. They have a gazebo garden area where your ceremony could take place. They have a tent and tables for your reception area. They have a quaint little built in bar called O’Shaws. They have a bride and groom room for your special day. They offer a surprise grand entrance, and to find out what that is go to their website www.davillebnb.com. You will fall in love with this place too!



Here is your green tip for the week! When choosing a menu for your wedding you should consider the season. Use fresh food items that are in season. That goes the same with flowers. Choose flowers that grow during the season your wedding will be. It will cost less and support local farmers and growers in your area.

At the conference one of our keynote speakers was Diann Valentine. She is one of the most inspiring women in the wedding industry. She had a dream, and went with it and look at her now. She has a new show on WE TV called I Do Over on Sundays at 10pm. When she was speaking to us she said she doesn’t read wedding magazines. She reads fishing, interior design, cars, and anything else. Her reasoning was that she doesn’t want to do anything that has already been done before, and doesn’t believe in doing something twice. I met her at the dinner reception, and she was so nice and personable. I’m really inspired by the advice that she gave us, and want to start applying it to wedding I will do one day.
