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.

Blue and Silver Christmas wedding

Ice blue and frosted silver:
what a perfect duo of colours for a Christmas wedding.

Particularly if you get your bridesmaids to wear dresses like these beautiful After Six 6718 dresses which come in a delectable selection of delicate blues and silvers, as shown immediately above with modified halter in matt satin ivory, or like the featured image which shows Platinum top with Cloud skirt – lovely. The full, hi-low skirt is a very flattering shape and falls in wide pleats at the back giving it a beautiful elegance.

With a blue and silver Christmas wedding you will be able to create a fabulous winter wonderland feel relatively easily and cost-effectively. All you need are tall branches (coppiced hazel or willow) which can be spray-painted white to produce a snowy forest. Once dry, spray some of the branches with glue and throw on some silver or white glitter. Place them in tied bundles around the room and light with blue and white fairy lights – magical.
