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 Summer Wedding

Blue Summer Wedding

When you are trying to decide your wedding colour scheme, Nature is a good place to start. Have a think what will be growing in the gardens and fields at the time of year you’re thinking about getting married. Not only will the use of seasonal flowers cut down the florist’s bill quite considerably, but plants that bloom together tend to go together. You need look no further for proof of that pudding than the stunning floral photos above and below from the divine Amanda Taffinder‘s website. What a fabulous collation of summer blooms in all manner of hues that work perfectly together.

So if you’re pondering a May or June wedding, when the suitably named Love-in-a-Mist and Forget-Me-Nots are blooming, what about a blue summer wedding? Because as you can see from the top left photo, dusky pinks and coral reds will help make up a gorgeous bouquet to go with a blue floral print bridesmaid dress, like this Alfred Sung D723 White Bouquet gown below from Dessy. And I love the red shoes!

Continue the abundance of colour from the garden into the Wedding Reception and let the blue flowers stand out by mixing them with reds, oranges and pinks:

Alternatively you could steal the differing blue from the season’s flowers for your mix and match bridesmaid dresses. Very clever how this beautiful bride chose to accessorise the bridesmaids with the palest of cream roses, each tied with a satin ribbon to match their individual dresses, whilst she visually tied it all together by including each shade of blue into her own bouquet. As ever, it’s the smallest of details that create a perfect whole; in this case, the bridesmaids’ necklaces echoed the bride’s handheld flowers and vice versa. The maids’ dresses, Dessy Collection Style 2943, are shown below (from left) in Sapphire, Lapis, Cerulean, Cornflower, Cloudy and Spa.

Whichever way you choose to play it, a blue summer wedding is a really joyous option, and with over 20 shades of blue bridesmaid dresses to select from, Dessy has got to be your first port of call!
