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.

Rainbow coloured bridesmaid dresses
March 26, 2012

Which colour theme will suit ALL your bridesmaids? A rainbow theme of course!

How are you going to choose a colour to dress your bridesmaids when they all suit different shades?

Blondes, brunettes, redheads, black hair …. one colour is unlikely to suit all and your girls will all be wanting to look their best.

One solution is to go multi-coloured and have a rainbow-themed wedding.  So you put your blondes in shades of pink, the brunettes in oranges or dark blues and the redheads in green.  Or leave it up to them – they’ll have ideas on what suits them.

I loved this image I found via  Style Me Pretty and I really liked the matching rainbow coloured bouquets.

Like this idea? You’ll find a selection of coloured bridesmaid dresses at Dessy with necklines to flatter all figures and varying lengths from cocktail to formal.

And why stop at your maids? Dessy has waistcoats and men’s accessories like bow ties in rainbow colours too – perfection ….

One question remains though. Which maid is going to match colours with which  groomsman? You’ll have fun deciding!
