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.

Purple and Black Halloween Wedding

A Purple and Black Halloween Wedding – a Goth’s dream

purple and black halloween wedding

Purple and black is a beautiful combination at the best of times, but when you consider it for an already emotionally-filled occasion like a wedding, it takes on a whole new level of drama.

The setting, the flowers, the cake, the lighting – all can look so fabulously theatrical and just call out for the bride and her girls to be dressed in the sumptuous satins, lace and velvets that such gothic colours demand.

What I like about the Bridesmaid dress Lela Rose LR192 in Majestic (above left) is that it is like a simplified version of the bride’s superbly-skirted black gown (above centre) from, giving a natural cohesion to the two outfits. Even better would be for the bride to be wearing simple ballet slippers in a colour to match the bridesmaid’s dress, like the Chelsea Ballet pumps from Dessy.

Or you could choose bridesmaid dresses that combine the two colours, like the ones I’ve picked out below. I have stuck to the glamorous satins as I think they work so well for a purple and black Halloween wedding.

But there are plenty of other awesome gowns to choose from, as you can see from this fab style board from the Dessy website…

And the flowers? Why not add in some black ostrich feathers and black lace ribbon for an extra Gothic touch; don’t they just look awesome?
