Attention to detail(s)


If you're planning a year out, once you've reserved your venue and hired your vendors, then comes that long lull where you probably won't be writing any checks or making too many decisions. But downtime is good, since there are plenty more (fun) details to occupy your time, namely favors, gifts for your wedding party, the ring pillow, the cake topper, place cards and escort cards...

And if you're in Colorado, on July 22 from 6-8 p.m., VOWS in Denver is hosting an event all about the details at 1810 Blake Street, where you'll get a chance to meet with It's A Gift, Write Occasions, Garter Glitz, and artist Paul Openfold, who creates paintings of couples' wedding venues. To RSVP, e-mail . —Lauren Matthews, editor Brides Colorado
