They say the devil is in the details. But, when it comes to weddings, the details are where things are often most beautifully done. On a day when many things are standard — think white dresses, tuxedos and tiered cakes, age old vows and wedding marches down church aisles — the details allow each bride to express her most personal inclinations while remaining well within the beauties of tradition.
The importance of details is something Sophie Broussard understands well. The hands behind Jolie Petale Handmade know just what women want on their special day — and the answer is never the same.
“It’s in her details where you find the heart and personality of the bride,” Broussard, who makes gorgeous headpieces, says. “Details may seem small and unimportant but it’s those little things that create that sentimental feeling. A wedding should be personal and intimate and one shouldn’t lose sight of that.”
Jolie Petale pieces have a unique flavor and it’s no wonder when you hear Broussard speak about what inspires her to create wedding day wares.
“When it’s all said and done and you are carefully packing away your wedding day essentials, memories will be found in the most beautiful places. As one of the final details in your otherwise meticulously styled day, your wedding headpiece should perfectly match the occasion. It’s about more than just matching colors and the little sparkly details. Accessories are as much a personal style statement as your wedding dress,” Broussard says.
Her pieces are “inspired by a love for intricate and feminine details in a modern aesthetic. Each piece is designed and handcrafted to reflect each bride’s beauty and their unique vision for their big day.”
And while Broussard is referring to headpieces, it’s a lesson that can be applied to every last detail of a wedding day.
Meghan Payne had details galore at her Christmastime wedding from the red dresses to the Santa who drove their getaway car. But, it was the glam details like her mile high gold heels that really spoke to her personal style.
For Rachel Goode, the details like heart-shaped shades for her bridesmaids and a lovely little gold pig (inspired by the couple’s beloved pet pig) on the wedding cake table spoke clearly to things she loves.
Whether it’s an heirloom headpiece or a cute little something great for photos like heart-shaped glasses, the details on the big day will bring home your personality when it’s time to say, “I do.”
