Planning Your Wedding

How wonderful! He’s popped the question and you’re engaged to be married!

Congratulations as you take your first steps into your happy future together.

You’re going to be busy over the next few months but don’t panic. There are masses of wedding planning tools out there to help you through every step of the way. If you decide to use a professional wedding planner that’s fine but if you’ve got some time, then plan your wedding yourself and make it a day that’s very personal to you.

The most important thing to do before you start is to set a realistic budget. Work out with your fiancé exactly what you can afford, find out if your parents are happy to contribute and go from there. You really don’t want to start off on married life together with credit card debts and a huge loan to pay for your wedding – family and friends come to your wedding because they love you and want to share your special day with you, not because they want to be impressed.

Pink macaroons, pink roses – a soft pink wedding theme

pink macaroonsI think it was the photograph of the pink macaroons that first caught my attention.

Then I looked through the rest of the images of this pink themed wedding and I was lost in admiration.

It’s delicate, feminine and beautiful.

Those sleek updos of the bridesmaids are so, so elegant and set off their pink Dessy bridesmaid dresses to perfection.  Just a simple bow detail at the shoulderline is enough.

I also love the pink roses and pink peonies used in the wedding bouquets.

This wedding took place by Ireland’s beautiful coastline, in County Tyrone and County Donegal.  Stunning scenery shown off to perfection by the glorious weather the wedding party enjoyed.
