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.

A wedding dream: bronzes, browns and dusky pinks

Posted by wed_admin in:
Real Weddings, Wedding Ideas


A colour theme that’s perfect for the brides among you who like subtlety.  Understatement.


Bride in birdcage veil


Dusky pinks for the bride’s vintage-look lace wedding gown.  A delicate birdcage veil setting it off.  Browns and bronzes adding contrasting accents.


A wedding bouquet that’s dreamily romantic.  Not the colours you’d immediately associate with a bride’s flowers but oh, don’t they work so well with this whole look.


I love the high flower arrangements on the wedding tables – lending a fairytale mood.  And the gilt detail just adds that extra elegant touch.


The gilt theme continues to the chair covers – the perfect finish.  And the bride and groom’s chairs are that little bit different with bronze ruffled satin. Old-fashioned cabbage roses spill out of their arrangements, matched with trailing ivy to create a floral garden along the aisle.
